Upcoming Mid-Week Runners – Greyville Wednesday 17th April 2019 & Vaal Thursday 18th April 2019

The Syndicate has 3 runners to keep an eye on, leading up to the long weekend. White Cedar looks a big runner in the 2nd Race at Greyville on Wednesday and Alphamikefoxtrot has his first run for the Moore stable, in the 8th Race. On Thursday at the Vaal, Seventh Son looks competitive in the 8th Race and could present some upset potential for his supporters.

Wednesday 17th April 2019
Greyville Poly Track

Race 2 – 13:25
1400m – Maiden Plate

2 – White Cedar
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7(10)
Predicted Betting: 16/10

He has been thereabouts in all his starts to date and this time around he has been fitted with the set of blinkers, which should make the difference here. As in his last few starts, he will be in a handy position once again and the blinkers should keep his mind on the job when it matters most. Final Assembly looks the main danger, but he has already had 14 chances at winning his maiden. He nevertheless must be respected.

Winning Form Comment: Good last two runs over this trip when utilised front running tactics.

Race 8 – 17:00
1000m MR 66 Handicap

11 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Eric Ngwane
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 6(11)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He is definitely not a horse laden with ability, but he has a fair record at this course and he has plummeted in the ratings since his handicap debut in early January. He seems to perform better with the blinkers fitted and drops down in class for this run today. From a decent draw, he could be upset material for this in-form stable. But it does look competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Needs to improve handicap formline.

Thursday 18th April 2019
Vaal Racecourse

Race 8 – 17:25
1000m – MR 66 Handicap

11 – Seventh Son
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Luke Ferraris
Wgt: 54.5kg
Draw: 3(18)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He is going closer and closer as he drops further in the ratings and the head-gear appears to have played in roll in that. He is a horse that needs everything to be in his favour and likes to be left alone for as long as possible in a race. Luke Ferraris takes the ride and he too could present a bit of upset potential, however he does look held by the 3 on that last run.

Winning Form Comment: Fair C&D record & can utilise his early pace.
