Thursday 25th April 2019
Vaal Turf Classic

Race 3 – 14:15
1000m – Maiden Plate

2 – Winter Twilight
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Piere Strydom
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1(17)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He has been right there in a few of his recent outings and he gives the impression that he will pop up and win his maiden any time now. Strydom takes the ride today and although he looks held by a few on that last run, he has the ability and the current form to go close on his best effort.

Winning Form Comment: Fair run with Striker on 24/01, has the ability to compete in this line-up.

Race 5 – 15:25
1200m – MR 73 Handicap

10 – Seventh Son
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 11(14)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He has been going the right way, before that disappointing last run and will be looking to make amends today. Muzi Yeni takes the ride, having ridden him a few starts back and they appear to get along well.  On his penultimate start, he should be very competitive and we give him a decent place chance in this moderate field.

Winning Form Comment: Carded to race 18 April 2019.
