Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 1 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He is having his first run out of the maidens and returns from a 12-week break. He is a big horse who takes a lot of work and may be in need of this outing. The son of Global View jumps from pole position and we are hoping for a positive return.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 12 wks. Best MR:72. Kept finding to win maiden. Cracked pole position and jockeys only ride.

Race 3 – 12:55
1750m – Chimichuri Run (2019) MR 75 Handicap

7 – Escape Artist
Breeding: Pomodoro – Elusive Spirit by Caesour (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She ran a creditable fourth last week Saturday and has taken that run well. She should have no issues with the rise to 1750m as she finished second over 1700m in the past. She gets on well with jockey Keagan de Melo and she is capable of running into the money.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Decent local debut against stronger. The blinkers remain fitted and can threaten.

Race 6 – 14:40
1200m – Gold Medallion (Grade 1)

4 – Cliff Top
Breeding: Canford Cliffs (IRE) – Baqueira by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Alan Greeff
Jockey: Greg Cheyne
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 4 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He takes his place in the Grade 1 Gold Medallion and jockey Greg Cheyne retains the ride. He has been working really well and left on Wednesday to head to KZN. He faces a competitive field of juveniles, but does deserve his place and should be involved in the fight to the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Beat number 9 to win the East Cape Nursery. Jockeys only ride.

Race 7 – 15:15
1200m – South African Fillies Sprint (Grade 1) Brought to you by The Witness

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 11 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

This is a competitive Grade 1 South African Fillies Sprint field. Full Velocity is in a very good space at the moment and she is putting up excellent work at home. This is her toughest test to date, but she has had a perfect preparation and should have an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:108. Beat number 13 to win a Grade 3 last time. Can complete hat-trick.

Race 8 – 15:50
1200m – Golden Horse Sprint (Grade 1)

Breeding: What A Winter – Bardot by Badger Land (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Grant van Niekerk
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 5 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 40/1

He is not an easy horse to assess at home and his form has been inconsistent of late. Grant van Niekerk steps into the saddle and we are hoping for a positive run from him.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:118. Won this race in 2020. Has upset potential.

Race 8 – 15:50
1200m – Golden Horse Sprint (Grade 1)

Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 10 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He ran on very nicely when finishing fourth in the Grade 1 Drill Hall Stakes last time. He comes into this race with a very competitive weight and he has maintained his well-being. The blinkers remain fitted and if putting his best foot forward, he should have a chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:126. Decent latest in a Grade 2. Watch.

Race 8 – 15:50
1200m – Golden Horse Sprint (Grade 1)

12 – Eden Roc

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 12 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/1

He finished second in this race last year. His main mission has been this contest and he has come on really well with each and every run. He is well handicapped and his preparation has gone smoothly. Richard Fourie steps back into the saddle and he is a big runner.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:119. Just pipped in this race last year and can upset.

Race 9 – 16:25
1400m – Battle Force (2021) MR 74 Handicap (F & M)

Breeding: Visionaire (USA) – Berlinetta by Jet Master
Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: *Reserve Runner 2
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: * (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

She returns from a 15-week break and is having her first run for the Gareth van Zyl yard. She is putting up some decent work at home and we are hoping that she behaves herself at the starting stalls. Improvement is expected.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Wright A J-2022.02.20. Rested 15 wks. Best MR:81. The break may have been what she needed and can improve.
