1000m – The Franschhoek Motor Museum Winchester Sprint Cup

Breeding: What A Winter – Miss Tweedy by Tiger Ridge (USA)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Christophe Soumillon
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 9 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 6/1

He returns from a 23-week break and is having his first run of the season. He has had two solid gallops at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth and is in great order heading into this contest. French jockey Christophe Soumillon is booked to ride. He is fit enough to do himself justice, but this run will bring him on for the Grade 1 Cape Flying Championship.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 23 wks. Gelded 2021.08.03. Best MR:103. Easy latest win. Season debut and merits respect.

Race 4 – 13:50

1000m – The Franschhoek Motor Museum Winchester Sprint Cup

13 – Iphiko
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Valor Red by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: JP van der Merwe
Wgt: 53.5kg
Draw: 13 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 8/1

She does take on male company, but receives her allowance which makes her reasonably well handicapped. She has made good progress since her second-place finish in the Grade 2 wsb.co.za Southern Cross Stakes. She has turned into a strong filly and with her natural gate speed, we are hoping that she will give the males a run for their money.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:107. Very quick filly. Went close in a Grade 2 last time.

Race 5 – 14:25

1200m – Cartier Sceptre Stakes (Grade 2)

6 – Going Up
Breeding: Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) – Raise The Bar by Goldkeeper (USA)
Trainer: Candice Bass-Robinson
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 6 (17 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She will enjoy return to 1200m as both her career victories have come over this distance. She is doing well and galloped nicely at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth, last week. She meets a competitive field and with S’manga Khumalo in the saddle, we are hoping for a positive effort.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:100. Fair latest behind number 13. Both wins have been achieved over this C&D.

Race 5 – 14:25

1200m – Cartier Sceptre Stakes (Grade 2)

14 – Happy Chance – SCRATCHED (Dirty Trach Wash)
Breeding: Dynasty – Three Blue Cranes by Captain Al
Trainer: Brett Crawford
Jockey: Luyolo Mxothwa
Wgt: 54.5kg
Draw: 14 (17 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1

She was not disgraced when finishing fifth in the Grade 1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas last time. She put up a really good gallop last week and is doing well heading into this race. On the strength of her gallop, she is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:106. Is held by number 2 on latest. Place chance.

Race 7 – 15:35

1800m – Cartier Paddock Stakes (WFA) (Grade 1)

8 – Make It Snappy
Breeding: Dynasty – Icy Winter Air by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Brett Crawford
Jockey: Luyolo Mxothwa
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 8 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She won a very good race in the Grade 1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas giving the Syndicate their first Grade 1 winner. She is doing very well at home and comes into this race fit. It is obviously a big task taking on some top horses including Captain’s Ransom and Marina. She is in a good space and we are hoping for a big run from her.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:115. A likely pacesetter. Won the Grade 1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas in style.

Race 10 – 17:20

2500m – Merchants On Long Chairman’s Cup (Grade 3)

8 – Black Thorn
Breeding: Pomodoro – Ebony Rose by Dynasty
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 8 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He was doing his best work late in the Grade 3 Drakenstein Stud Cape Summer Stayers Handicap over this course and distance, five weeks ago. He does meet a competitive field, but his preparation has gone well and he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:103. Fair latest and Lerena retains ride. Chance on best form shown.
