Draw: 10 (10 Runners)

She returns from a 24-week break and is having her first run for the MJ Odendaal stable. The daughter of Vercingetorix is a temperamental filly who is expected to need the run. This outing will bring her on for future races.

Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Cole Dicken
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 7 (9 Runners)

He returns from a 13-week break due to an injury. The son of William Longsword is doing well at home but is likely to need the run. This outing will bring him on for future races.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 13 wks. Best MR:79. Finished behind number 5 in post maiden effort. Don’t ignore.

Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 1 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He showed good guts and determination when winning his last start over 1400m on this course. He has come out of that run well and is doing nicely at home. This is a competitive field and with 54kgs on his back, he can finish in the placings.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:93. Hard fought comeback victory. Handy galloping mass will help.

Race 7 – 16:00

Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: Craig Zackey
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 6 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He is holding his form and is doing well at home. This race will suit him, and he will enjoy racing over 1500m. Royal Victory merits healthy respect after winning the Grade 1 Betway Summer Cup. However, he is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:101. Beaten narrowly in last two starts. Genuine threat.

He is having his second run for the Syndicate. He is better than his last start as he was reported to be coughing post-race. The son of Flower Alley is doing well at home and will enjoy the switch to the turf. If getting into the race, we expect to see an improved run.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Had excuses in latest. Back on turf and chance on good prior form.
