On Tuesday 17th December 2019, Whiteleaf Hills will look to improve on his below par latest effort, when stepping out at Fairview off a reduced rating. See more about their chances here.

Monday 16th December
Turffontein Standside

Race 8 – 16:30
1000m – MR 72 Handicap

13 – Seventh Son
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Piere Strydom
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 5 (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/1

Back for his second run after a rest, after that promising comeback run last time out. That was on the Poly and he returns to the Gauteng Turf for this run. Piere Strydom jumps aboard and he knows him well, having landed two wins on the trot aboard this son of Seventh Rock, back in December last year. He is a speedy sort and he has come on nicely from that latest outing. Off his current rating he looks competitive in this sort of company and with the expected improvement to come, he has a nice each way chance in a relatively open race.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after a rest. Speedy Sort. Good latest in KZN. Include.

Tuesday 17th December 2019
Fairview Polytrack 

Race 8 – 16:35
1900m – MR 68 Handicap

10 – Whiteleaf Hills
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Marco van Rensburg
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 1 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He was disappointing last time out, when caught out wide from a tricky draw and he never managed to get into a competitive position thereafter. He has slipped a further two points in the ratings and he now lines up off a very competitive mark of 56. From a plum draw, Marco van Rensburg retains the ride and he should be able to find cover near the front with relative ease. He is doing well at home and if finding his recent prior form, he will be in with a nice each way chance here.

Winning Form Comment: Moderate Latest. Continues to drop in the ratings. Place chance.
