Race 1 – Vaal Racecourse
SET TO GO was toppled late on debut when sent off 2nd favourite over C&D a fortnight ago. Paul Peter’s colt can go one better with that run under his belt. EMIRATE GINA has found 3rd in both outings to date and could relish the extra furlong this time.
Top Tip – SET TO GO (3)
One to consider – EMIRATE GINA (8)
Race 2 – Vaal Racecourse
TANZANITE QUEEN concedes weight all round but looks hard to beat over what should prove an ideal C&D. A similar effort to her length 2nd here should do the trick. PERMESSO AVANTI won with plenty in hand on debut and wasn’t disgraced when ¾ a length 3rd on return. An up in trip might be all it takes to get her back on top.
Top Tip – TANZANITE QUEEN (1)
One to consider – PERMESSO AVANTI (3)
Race 3 – Vaal Racecourse
DAME TWINING gets the nod on debut for Paul Peter, sporting some decent relatives. ROSE VELVET is the pick with race experience. She’s nothing to write home about but could put the runs to good work.
Top Tip – DAME TWINING (3)
One to consider – ROSE VELVET (9)
Race 4 – Vaal Racecourse
SAMOA reopened the account with 6+ in hand 5 days ago and the drop back to 5f shouldn’t stop her from putting forth another strong account. LULU’S BOY is bred for longer trips than this but opened the account over 6f on penultimate run and wasn’t disgraced in 4th on double bid. Blinkers go on and we could see plenty of improvement.
Top Tip – SAMOA (10)
One to consider – LULU’S BOY (2)
Race 5 – Vaal Racecourse
ZIMBABA returned from 150 days off to land a promising 3rd at Turffontein before getting her head back in front over this trip at Greyville on Boxing Day. She has every chance to double down here. FOLLOW ME has not run a bad race to date and should pull up well after 66 days off. She is a big danger on return to the track she won at on debut.
Top Tip – ZIMBABA (1)
One to consider – FOLLOW ME (2)
Race 6 – Vaal Racecourse
LITIGATION is never far from the action and is a C&D winner who should relish the return to the mile for Sean Tarry. SET THE STANDARD demands respect as a fellow C&D winner who landed a superb 2nd over slightly shorter on comeback in October. Another rest can see him fresh and ready for another shot.
Top Tip – LITIGATION (7)
One to consider – SET THE STANDARD (3)
Race 7 – Vaal Racecourse
BOLD FORTUNE has won her last 3 by ever-shrinking margins but still seems to be in the driver’s seat here. With enormous momentum and a trip that suits she should take a lot of stopping. ETERNITY RING is fine form of late, landing a double before striking the crossbar the last twice.
Top Tip – BOLD FORTUNE (1)
One to consider – ETERNITY RING (7)
Race 8 – Vaal Racecourse
DARK TRAVEL has been doing good work in defeat of late and has to be respected over this C&D where she has a win and 2 placings from 3 attempts. NAVAL GUARD returned from a rest as a gelding and immediately opened the account with a couple in hand. He could have plenty more to offer for Paul Peter.
Top Tip – DARK TRAVEL (5)
One to consider – NAVAL GUARD (4)
