Sunday 12 July 2020
Turffontein Inside

Race 2 – 13:10
1450m – Stay Safe With A Mask Juvenile Plate

2 – Ramchandani Road
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

A winner in his last start he now lines up for his peak run after a 3 month absence and steps up to 1450m this time. On his pedigree he may find it tough, but he did show a fair amount of resolve to box on gamely for that victory last time and the impression given was that he “may” enjoy a bit more ground. S’manga Khumalo takes the mount which is an encouraging jockey booking, but he’ll have to prove himself over this trip before he is tipped to the public.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Cherry-ripe and big runner if relishing the extra ground on offer.

Race 9 – 16:45
1200m – Covid-19 Helpline 0800 029 999 MR 71 Handicap

11 – Strikeitlikeamatch
Trainer: Barend Botes
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 5 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is an old campaigner with this being his 49th career start, but this 6-year old gelding still seems to be ticking over nicely and he has certainly been knocking on the door in recent times. Having dropped significantly in the ratings he looks well handicapped and it is encouraging to see Khumalo retain the ride after that decent last run. He lands a useful draw for this 1200m trip around the bend and looks to have decent place credentials with an outside winning chance.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 15 wks. Best MR:82. Not far off in latest at this rating.
