Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 2 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 6/10

She returns from a 14-week rest and the break has done her the world of good. She has picked up condition and her workouts are still very good. The daughter of Lancaster Bomber has a strong form line and she is the horse to beat.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 14 wks. Has placed in all three runs and can shed maiden tag.

Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Daphne Garland by Fort Wood (USA)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 2 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

This will be his first run over 1800m. He was running on strongly in his last start over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. It is a very competitive field, but he is drawn nicely in barrier two and he is very well in himself. The son of Master Of My Fate has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:93. Consistent form. Is 1kg better off at the weights with number 8 on latest.

Breeding: William Longsword – Brave Bid by Qui Danzig (USA)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 7 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He is very well in himself and he has been racing very consistently. This is a competitive line-up and we are hoping that the race is run at a decent pace. If things go his way in transit, he is more than capable of running into the first four.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:85. Good effort in latest run. Gets cheekpieces fitted and can go close.

Race 6 – 15:45
1400m – TABGold Card Call MR 66 Handicap

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 10 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He steps back up to the 1400m and the blinkers will be re-fitted. He will be settled near the rear of the field from his wide draw of ten and will be doing his best work at the finish. We are hoping for a positive effort.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:78. Takes a slight drop-in class. Should appreciate the step up in distance and can improve.

Race 8 – 16:55
1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 77 Handicap

Breeding: What A Winter – Shufoog (AUS) by Star Witness (AUS)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 7 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He appears to be holding his form on the track, although he does not give much away when he does work. He looks great and is good in his action. If he builds on his maiden win in his last start, he should be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2023.05.24. Best MR:88. Won latest over this C&D. First run out of the maidens and can show.
