Jockey: Billy Jacobson
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 8 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She was in need of her first run for the Syndicate and races over 1200m. She will be better suited to this distance, but it is still not her optimum distance. The daughter of What A Winter is expected to show some improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Janse van Vuuren J-2022.11.30. 2nd run after rest. Is held by number 1 on latest. Could improve to find a place.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:81. The apprentice claim will help. Has won twice over this C&D and will be staying on.

Race 5 – 14:35
1400m – Off The Rails MR 67 Handicap (F & M)

10 – Chelsea Blue
Breeding: Canford Cliffs (IRE) – African Lily by Horse Chestnut
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 10 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She returns from a short nine-week break as there has been limited races for her. She is drawn wide in barrier 10 and tries the polytrack for the first time. On her work that she has shown, she may be in need of the run. However, she is a filly with ability and with luck in running, she is capable of finishing in the first four.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:69. Good latest win. The blinkers seem to have done the trick and has scope.

Race 7 – 15:50
1000m – Follow In The Box Seat Podcast MR 80 Handicap

2 – Purple Operator
Breeding: Captain Of All – House Of Lorraine by Dynasty
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 2 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He is very well in himself and is drawn nicely in barrier two. He has been racing very consistently of late. The 1000m could be on the short side for him and a lot depends on how the race is run. He is a horse that cannot be ignored and another honest effort is expected.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. In good form. Prefers slightly further but is still a genuine contender.

Race 8 – 16:25
1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 69 Handicap

6 – Phinda Mzala
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Facinating Filly by Antonius Pius (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 6 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He ran a good race over this course and distance last time. He was unlucky not to have won that day as he was bumped at the 150m mark. The son of Philanthropist is doing well and he should be involved in the fight to the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Good latest over this C&D and runs well for Matsunyane.

Race 8 – 16:25
1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 69 Handicap

7 – Thunder Masala
Breeding: Global View (USA) – Scented Ash by Ashaawes (USA)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 7 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

His recent form has been fair and he is doing well at home. The son of Global View drops to the 1200m and the blinkers should sharpen him up. We are hoping that there is a good pace in the race and he will be doing his best work at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:72. Drops back to sprinting. Gets blinkers fitted and can run into the money.
