Race 6 – 14:50
1400m – Track & Ball Gaming MR 67 Handicap
2 – Uncle Charlie
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Jabu Jacobs -2.5kg
Draw: 2 (15 Runners)
Current Betting: 8/1
He lands a plum draw for his return to racing after a 20 week break, having dropped another 4 points in the ratings and he looks well handicapped to show good improvement. He will still need this run but finds a barrier 2 and that should allow him to find the run of the race. If finding a smooth passage, we’ll be expecting a top half finish and the run should bring him nicely for his follow up attempt thereafter.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 20 wks. Best MR:84. Dropping in the ratings, well drawn and the appie claim will assist.
3 – Arctic Princess
Trainer: Glen Kotzen
Jockey: Kanya Sakayi (-1.5kg)
Draw: 3 (15 Runners)
Current Betting: 33/1
She has been very disappointing since cracking her maiden three starts back and time could be running out for this filly if she doesn’t show us some improvement here. She has shown a fair amount of early speed in her last two starts which is why we have opted to bring her back to the 1200m. Drawn well, apprentice Sakayi should be able to settle close to the early lead and that will hopefully give her a great opportunity to show more.
Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:75. Two poor handicap efforts, others look stronger.
