Jockey: *Reserve Runner 2
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: * (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1

He produced a promising debut effort over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on 22 June. He was green in running and suffered interference. He is a nice horse in the making, but could still be green for this type of race. If getting into the race from a decent draw, he should run a good race.

Winning Form Comment: *Master Of My Fate gelding(Cost R170000). Promising debut run. Can place if getting into the race.

Breeding: Pomodoro – Ebony Rose by Dynasty
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 55.5kg
Draw: 8 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 11/10

He is loving life at the moment and he is in a good space. It is a competitive race, but he will be suited to the course and distance. He has a good winning chance and we are hoping to shout him home.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:94. Good victory in prep run over 1800m. Has no stamina issues and is the horse to beat.

Race 9 – 17:30
1200m – Post Merchants (Grade 2)

Breeding: Var (USA) – Townsend by Captain Al
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Richard Fourie

Predicted Betting: 10/1

He is in a very good space heading into this race. He will be suited to the course and distance. He does have an awkward draw to overcome, but gets the services of Winning Form-sponsored jockey Richard Fourie and he will be doing his best work at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:119. Last race came too soon. To race with compression mask.

Race 9 – 17:30
1200m – Post Merchants (Grade 2)

11 – Isivunguvungu

Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Grant van Niekerk +0.5kg
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 11 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 8/1

He was stretching out nicely in his final workout up the hill and he appears to be progressing all the time. Although, he has work to do at the weights, his trainer is of the opinion that he is still under the radar from a merit rating perspective. The son of What A Winter is expected to put up a bold showing.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2021.08.03. Best MR:103. Is weighted to finish closer to number 12 on latest. Has ability.

Race 10 – 18:10

Breeding: Var (USA) – Light The Moon by Victory Moon
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: *Reserve Runner 1
Wgt: 52.5kg
Draw: * (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1

This was a race that has been earmarked for him and it is disappointing that he is now a reserve runner. He is doing very well at home and if getting into the race, he will be very competitive in this field.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:93. Fair latest in the Grade 2 WSB 1900m. Chance if getting a run.
