Race 1 – Vaal Racecourse
QUICK RUN is a remarkably consistent filly while still remaining a maiden, finding the frame the last 7 times. She has drawn pole position and could shed the maiden tag with a little improvement. JUST BE NICE was well-backed on debut when 3rd after showing up green. That run under her belt can see her sharpen plenty.
Top Tip – QUICK RUN (2)
One to consider – JUST BE NICE (9)
Race 2 – Vaal Racecourse
DRONFIELD improved markedly for the application of blinkers latest when ¾ of a length 2nd at Turffontein over this trip. Another go with Warren Kennedy in the plate can see him go one better. TRUST THE FIRE has improved of late, finding the frame with little market support. He could continue working toward an open account now dropped in trip.
Top Tip – DRONFIELD (1)
One to consider – TRUST THE FIRE (5)
Race 3 – Vaal Racecourse
MYCHANCETODREAM should sharpen up from a debut effort after a promising 4th over 6f here. LETHA showed enough to like in 3rd over 6f at Turffontein latest but seemed to need more run, afforded that today expect improvement.
Top Tip – MYCHANCETODREAM (14)
One to consider – LETHA (13)
Race 4 – Vaal Racecourse
BLONDE ACT showed marked improvement the last thrice, landing in the frame in each effort. Back from a 145 day rest he could pick up right where he left off. MOTOR CITY HITMAN has been beaten favourite the last twice but his prior form does suggest he can regain his focus.
Top Tip – BLONDE ACT (1)
One to consider – MOTOR CITY HITMAN (3)
Race 5 – Vaal Racecourse
LEE EXPRESS took a leap forward in first-time blinkers when ¾ a length 2nd over C&D latest from a lousy draw. She is equally poorly drawn here but could eke out enough to reopen the account. LE THERE BE LIGHT has a good local record and was a positive 2nd when last seen in October. A bit less yardage is unlikely to prove troublesome for Paul Peter’s filly.
Top Tip – LEE EXPRESS (1)
One to consider – LET THERE BE LIGHT (2)
Race 6 – Vaal Racecourse
AL MUTHANA is inconsistent but undoubtedly talented, sporting a strong local record. Dropped in trip we could see him retrace the winning thread. SOUND OF SUMMER has been in the money in all 10 starts, including 5 wins. He has pole position and should be very competitive.
Top Tip – AL MUTHANA (2)
One to consider – SOUND OF SUMMER (4)
Race 7 – Vaal Racecourse
GODSWOOD is a talented operator with all 4 career wins coming over C&D. He is back from 99 days off and could go very well fresh. MARENGO battled his way to a ½ length victory in first-time blinkers at Turffontein latest and could very well double down now he’s gained some momentum.
Top Tip – GODSWOOD (2)
One to consider – MARENGO (4)
Race 8 – Vaal Racecourse
IFRAANS BOY tries the blinkers again after a mediocre display over C&D. Now paired with a 9lb claimer we could see him bounce back over the track and trip he won his maiden over. PHINDA MZALA has been in the money the last 4 times and could take another step forward over an ideal C&D.
Top Tip – IFRAANS BOY (1)
One to consider – PHINDA MZALA (3)
