Race 4 – 14:20

1600m – Pound Bloodstock Maiden Plate

1 – El Rey Viene

Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

He was very green on debut over 1200m and finished his race off nicely. He will be more effective over this distance, but may still be green around the turn. If jumping on terms, he is capable of finishing in the first four.

Winning Form Comment: Needed debut in yielding conditions. Can improve from pole position.

Race 4 – 14:20

Trainer: Kumaran Naidoo
Jockey: Mpumelelo Mjoka
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 12 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 80/1

He returns from a 36-week break and is having his first run for the Kumaran Naidoo stable. He has had a couple of gallops prior to this race and has been working fairly well. He is drawn wide in barrier eleven and may be in need of this outing.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Binda C-2021.12.23. Rested 36 wks. Stable debut. Has a wide draw to overcome but can still improve.

Race 5 – 14:55

1400m – SA Home Loans Pinnacle Stakes

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: *Rachel Venniker -1.5kg
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He has lost his form, but has had a nice 11-week break and is moving well. Rachel Venniker takes the ride and we are expecting a much better run from him.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 11 wks. Best MR:118. The break may have done him the world of good. Chance.

Race 7 – 16:05

1000m – Pound Bloodstock MR 89 Handicap (F & M)

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 5 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She wasn’t disgraced over 1200m last time. The daughter of Querari is a much better horse over this distance. It is a very open race, but she is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:98. Fair latest. Habib takes the ride and can find a form return.

He returns from a 15-week break and is having his first run for the Gareth van Zyl yard. He has lost ground at the starting stalls in his last two runs. The stable have worked with him and he has passed on a race day. We are hoping that he jumps on terms and that he shows improvement.
