Just the one runner to look out for this weekend, when Phinda Mzala looks to build on that solid effort last week. See more about what we expect here.
Sunday 2 August 2020
Race 2 – 13:25
1000m – Social Distancing Maiden Plate (C&G)
1 – Phinda Mzala
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jeffrey Syster (-2.5kg)
Draw: 12 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
He has improved in each of his four outings since returning to racing in early June. After a solid effort over the 1000m trip last time, he now gets the benefit of the 2,5kg apprentice claim and that should make him a big factor here.
With that said, Diego De Gouveia has jumped ship and now rides the Stuart Pettigrew trained Vars Vicky, who impressed on debut and appears to be the one to beat.
Winning Form Comment: Placed in both runs with blinkers fitted. Quick starter, respect.
