Upcoming Runners – Thursday 21st June 2018

The Hollywood Syndicate has two runners this week at the Vaal Racecourse on Thursday 21st June 2018. LAUREN OF ROCHELLE returns to the track after a much needed break, while GOOD LORD PADMORE makes his debut in Gauteng after making the move from KZN. James Everett spoke to Clinton to get his views on these two runners and their chances this week.

Vaal - Thursday 21st June 2018

Race 5
1200m - MR84 Handicap - 15:05
LAUREN OF ROCHELLE - 9
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Heavelon v/d Hoven
Wgt: 55.5kg
Draw: 7 (9)
Odds: 10/1

After winning twice in two months over December and January his subsequent next two starts, although decent efforts, indicated that he was in need of a rest. He is now coming back from that 16 week lay-off and will no doubt be in need of this outing. Clinton Binda also mentioned that he probably needs to come down in the ratings by a few points in order to give him a realistic chance of landing up in the winners box again. He is a hard knocking 4 year old and this run will bring him on a lot.

Winning Form comment: "Likes this course and distance, v/d Hoven back up, watch."

Race 8
1600m - Maiden Plate - 16:50

GOOD LORD PADMORE - 2
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Heavelon v/d Hoven
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 9 (17)
Odds: 5/1

This is his first start in the province after moving up from KZN. He is fit and well and will no doubt benefit from the galloping type tracks on offer on the highveld. This 1600m straight track should augur well for him and it will be a good indicator of how he takes to these conditions.  Clinton Binda is happy with his work at home and advises that this run will be used as a bit of educational outing to see where to go from here.

Winning Form comment: "Makes stable debut, drops in trip, still has scope."
