She is a filly who has had a few setbacks, but the stable are on top of those issues at the moment. It is time for her to start her racing career and this distance is too short. The daughter of Visionaire will be much better suited to further and this run will bring her on for future races.

He is having his first run for the Gareth van Zyl stable. He had to be schooled at the starting stalls and re-pass to earn his certificate. If he reproduces how he has been jumping out the gates at home, he is capable of being competitive. He is the stable elect with Athandiwe Mgudlwa in the saddle.

He did run on nicely from off the pace last time out and will enjoy the step up to 1200m. His trainer is of the opinion that he is better suited to the polytrack. However, he is doing well and should have an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:89. Fair latest despite awkward start and should strip fitter. Chance.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:73. Fair last two starts. Has peak run and last win came under De Melo.
