Saturday 17th October 2020
Race 8 – 15:55
1200m – Emperors Palace Charity Mile 31/10 Merit Rated 79 Handicap
10 – Strikeitlikeamatch
Trainer: Barend Botes
Jockey: Philasande Mxoli (-4kg)
Draw: 4 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1
He has dropped to a very competitive rating in recent times and gradual signs of improvement have been prevalent. Having overcome a very wide draw in his last start to finish off a bold effort in 5th place, the 4kg claimer retains the ride from a much improved draw here. He finds conditions to suit and if all goes to plan, he should have a solid place chance.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Signs of a form return in latest, can confirm.
