Thursday 8th August 2019
Vaal Turf

Race 1 – 12:20
1200m – Workriders Maiden Plate (Fillies)

4 – Captains Legacy
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Marcell Pillay
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 9(13)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

She hasn’t shown much in her 10 starts so far and as mentioned in previous pre-race comments, her time really is running out. Marcell Pillay takes the mount for this Work-Riders event and although still learning the ropes, he is a more than competent horseman. He has been filling the Assistant Trainer role for the Clinton Binda stable, over the past few months and he will know this filly well. She has shown minor signs of improvement in her last two starts, since having the blinkers fitted and we are hopeful that significant further improvement is shown today.

Winning Form Comment: Modest form so far. Will need to improve to have a say.
