Upcoming Mid-Week Runners at Vaal Turf – Tuesday 5th March 2019 & Greyville Poly – Wednesday 6th March 2019

We have three runners representing our silks during the week. Syx Shooter and Jerry The Juggler both have their official debuts at the Vaal and Greyville respectively, while Alphamikefoxtrot is starting to approach a competitive rating and should show more improvement at the Vaal. See more about their chances here.

Tuesday 5th March 2019
Vaal Turf

 Race 1 – 12:40
1200m – Maiden Plate

14 – Syx Shooter
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane (-2.5kg)
Wgt: 60.0
Draw: 5(9)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He put up a nice gallop 2 weeks ago, however he isn’t quite as forward as our debut winning two year old Look To The Sky. With that said, he has quite a bit of speed about him and we expect him to make a good account of himself first time out. This run will bring him on and a lot and he will benefit immensely from the experience.

Race 6 – 15:35
1200m – MR 72 Handicap

13 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Denis Schwarz
Wgt: 52.5kg
Draw: 4(16)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He has dropped nicely in the ratings since his maiden win a few runs back and his post maiden form has been fair. He is up in class here, but back to his favoured trip and we are hoping for further improvement on his last three runs. We’ll be hoping for a good run and if he finishes in the money in this sort of company, he could be one to follow at a decent price next time out.

Winning Form Comment: Fair post maiden form and prefers this trip. Place chance at best.

Wednesday 6th March 2019
Greyville Polytrack

 Race 2 – 13:40
1200m – Maiden Plate

5 – Jerry The Juggler
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1(7)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He put up a nice Barrier Trial towards the end of December and has just gone through a few rough patches in terms of his well-being. He is a very nice half-brother to former star sprinter Chant De Nuit and we are expecting a big run from him. Going on his ability, he wouldn’t be a shock winner but we expect to see the best of him over 1400-1600m.
