Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He moved through to win his last start over 1600m, but may not have seen out the distance. He is doing very well and it is not a very strong field. He is more than capable of finishing in the first three.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2021.08.30. Best MR:79. Fair latest and the form has been franked. Chance.

She is returning from a 20-week break. Her work in the lead up to this race has been pleasing and she is in a good space. She may need the run, but has the class to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 20 wks. Trapped wide in a Grade 2 before the break. Makes handicap debut and merits respect.

Draw: 7 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She ran a good race when finishing second over 1600m, last week Friday. She has taken that run well and will be ridden the same way. It is a competitive field but if this run has not come too soon, she should be in the firing line.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:89. Finished well in latest over a mile. Drops back to 1400m and has strong claims.

Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 1 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/10

Unfortunately, he had to be scratched from the Grade 3 Merchants last time due to the meeting being moved to another date. He is very well in himself and put up a good gallop on Tuesday morning. It is a competitive race, but he has a good each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:100. Is 1kg worse off at the weights with number 7 on latest. Is a threat.

Draw: 4 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He has not raced on the grass for a long time as his better form is on the polytrack. There are no races for him on the polytrack until January. He is very well heading into this race and if suited to the turf, he can run into the money.

Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 52.5kg
Draw: 14 (16 Runners)

Jockey Athandiwe Mgudlwa who has won on him in the past, steps back into the saddle. He is better suited to the polytrack, but he has put in some decent efforts on the grass in the past. It is an open looking contest and on his best form, he can feature.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:66. Not disgraced in latest despite excuses. May prefer poly.
