Race 2 – 12:50
1000m – Maiden Plate (F&M)

13 – Afriel
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Smanga Khumalo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (12 Runners)
Current Betting: 14/1

She is quite a speedy filly and the step up to the 1200m last time out appears to have been a touch too far, although she certainly wasn’t disgraced. Back to the 1000m here, she is the first reserve runner and with the withdrawal of her stable companion, she is now guaranteed a run. If settling in the early stages, this daughter of Master Of My Fate should be prominent throughout and go into contention for a place finish.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Fair effort last time. May be better suited to this trip. Place chance.


Tuesday 23 June 2020
Vaal Turf

Race 9 – 16:25
1200m – Covid-19 National Crisis Helpline  0800 029 999 MR 86 Divided Handicap

13 – Blow Me Down
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Reserve Runner
Wgt: 52.5kg
Draw: 13 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: SP

He was expected to go closer to winning last time, but was clearly affected by the mouth injury he suffered as he exited the starting stalls. A reserve runner here, there will have to be a withdrawal in order for him to take part but if he does get a chance he should give a good account of himself.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Had excuses in latest. Handy galloping mass will help. Place chance.

Wednesday 24 June 2020
Hollywoodbets Scottsville  

Race 4 – 13:40
1600m – Track And Ball Online www.trackandball.co.za Maiden Plate (F&M)

1 – Anika The Angel
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 1/1

She was just pipped last time and may have won the race had she not shifted outwards in the final moments of the race. That was on her return to racing, over 1400m and the step up to the mile is exactly what she is looking for. From pole position, she will be close to the leading line and on her current credentials in this modest field, she should be very tough to beat.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Should have won last time. Meets a weak field and is drawn in pole. Hard to beat.
