Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 2 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She is looking very good and has come on since her encouraging debut effort. She was unlucky in her first outing and will love the rise to 1200m. The daughter of Lancaster Bomber is working well, a good run is expected, and she should be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Eye-catching debut performance on this course. Should be one of the leading contenders.

Race 3 – 13:30
1400m – Beach Beauty MR 94 Handicap

4 – Queen Of Smoke
Breeding: Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) – Kwinta by Kahal (GB)
Trainer: MJ Odendaal
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 4 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

Due to the lack of races for her, she meets a competitive field and faces the males. This race will be used as a stepping stone to keep her fitness levels up. She jumps from a good draw of four and we are hoping to see some improvement.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:94. Has lost best form and needs to improve.

Wgt: 55.0kg
Draw: 7 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He returns from a 13-week break. He has progressed very nicely over the past few weeks and his work has been solid. The son of Captain Of All is carrying a bit of condition and is expected to be in need of this outing. The stable expect him to produce an encouraging return to the races.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 13 wks. Gelded 2023.09.05. Best MR:89. The break may have done him the world of good. Respect.

Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 13 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He returns from an 11-week break. He is doing well at home, is in a good space and is a fit horse. The son of Twice Over does meet a competitive field but he is expected to produce a good effort and he is capable of finishing in the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 11 wks. Best MR:99. Not far off the winner recently. Place chance.

He has been disappointing in his last three starts. He returns to Handicap Company and carries a nice weight of 53kgs with Muzi Yeni booked to ride. The stable have opted to remove the blinkers for this outing. He is doing well at home and we are hoping to see him return to best form.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Blinkers OFF. Best MR:97. Will need to find best form. Trainer’s only runner.

Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 7 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He was running on too late when second behind King Of The Gauls last time. He is worse off at the weights with a few horses in this race. He is going into this contest fit and well. The stable are of the opinion that he will enjoy racing over 1100m and he is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:107. Is 3kgs worse off at the weights with number 12 on latest. Don’t ignore.

Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: #Rachel Venniker
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 8 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

This is her first run back from the Western Cape. She has come back in very good condition and she is well in herself. She is running over a distance short of her best, but she is expected to be finishing off her race strongly. The daughter of What A Winter has a good each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Van Zyl G-2024.02.24. Best MR:111. Back at Howells camp. Expect big run.
