Vaal Classic

Race 3 – 14:15
1200m – Interbet.co.za 0861 150 160 Maiden Juvenile Plate

7 – Phinda Mzala
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 14 (14 Runners)
Current Betting: 33/10

He has taken a lot longer to leave the maidens that we initially expected, after showing a fair amount of promise early on. If ridden a little more patiently, he should be able to finish off his run a lot better than he has been doing and that could induce the necessary improvement here. With that said, time could start to run out for him if he doesn’t show us something soon.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. *Carded To Race – 09.07.2020.

Race 8 – 16:45
Covid-19 National Crisis Helpline – 0800 029 999 MR 80 Handicap

11 – Kings Road
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Denis Schwarz
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 2 (17 Runners)
Current Betting: 16/1

He returns to racing on the back of a very impressive maiden win earlier this year, for his handicap debut. A speedy son of top young sire, Vercingetorix, he could just need the run and it will be difficult to gauge how he handles the rise in class. With that said, he gets the services of useful young rider Schwarz, and we’ll be expecting a top half finish.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 22 wks. Best MR:77. Makes handicap debut. Shows plenty early toe and could upset.
