Thursday 4th October 2018
Race 1 – 12:45
1000m – Maiden Plate (3yr olds)
Trainer: Tobie Spies
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Draw: 8 (14)
Peking Tyson lines up in this Maiden Plate for 3 year old horses over the minimum trip of 1000m.
The yard is pleased with his work back at home but this is going to be a touch on the sharp side. Should he not lose too much ground at the start, he should be running on nicely at the business end and could earn a cheque.
We won’t be tipping him with any confidence this time around.
Dangers in the race look to be in the form of the beautifully bred Vardo, who debuted in feature company and should improve on that run. Kingston Park is closely related to Smart Banker and should also show some good improvement.
Winning Form Comment:
Improved last run when equipped with blinkers, minimum trip could suit, include.
Race 9 – 17:25
1000m – MR 74 Apprentice Handicap
It’s back down the straight this time around and we are hoping he puts it together this time and goes close.
Kabelo Matsuyane admittedly got it wrong last time by chasing him to the front early on and we are expecting him to revert back to old tactics of switching him off and letting him run on late.
He has very little weight on his back and this definitely makes him a big runner.
