Saturday 9th March 2019
Turffontein Racecourse

Race 3 – 13:35
1000m – Stormbird Stakes (Listed)

4 – Look To The Sky
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 11(11)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He was an impressive winner on debut and that formline has held up nicely. He comes into this race a fresh horse and if he repeats that debut effort, he should be too good for this field. We give him an excellent each way chance.

Winning Form Comments: Eye catching debut win. Has plenty of scope and looks a big danger.

Race 6 – 15:20
2000m – Derby Trial (Listed)

7 – Seattle Force
Trainer: Stuart Pettigrew
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 53.0kg
Draw: 3(15)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He makes his local debut in the province and has faced much stronger in the Cape. The strategy for this race will be to bounce him out the stalls and commit to a handy position where he can use his big action out in front. He has a nice galloping weight to shoulder and although he is 80% ready for this outing, he should give a good account of himself.

Winning Form Comments: Makes local debut, but has faced stronger. Include.

Sunday – 10th March 2019
Greyville Poly Track

Race 1 – 13:10
1000m – Maiden Plate

2 – Winter Twilight
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Diego De Gouveia
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 2(7)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He did himself no favours in his last start, hanging in late and causing interference to the runners behind him. As such, he was demoted from 2nd to 4th. The slight drop in trip will suit him tonight and he should run a big race. We give a good each way chance.

Winning Form Comments: Good course debut last time. Chance if repeating.

Race 2 – 13:45
1000m – MR 73 Handicap

7 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 8(8)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He has been doing relatively well in the handicaps and having run a decent race on Tuesday at the Vaal, he will be making his way down to the coast on Saturday for this run on Sunday. If this race hasn’t come too soon, he should give a good account of himself, but he is one of those horses that has to have everything in his favour to win.

Winning Form Comment: Decent course record and drops in MR. Watch.

Race – 10
1000m – Barrier Trial

12 – Travelling Light
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 3(15)

She isn’t a big filly, but what she lacks in size, she makes up for in appearance. She really is a classy looker and has put up some very exciting workouts, which could indicate that she is well above average. This will be entirely a learning experience for her and we should see her debut run in a few weeks.
