9 – Imbewu
Breeding: William Longsword – Natural Beauty by Judpot (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 3 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She was in need of her comeback runover 1100m last time. She has come on with the run under her belt and will enjoy the step up to 1400m. Gavin Lerena retains the ride and she should run into the placings.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:91. Needed comeback run over shorter. Won maiden on this course and should strip fitter.

Race 9 – 16:40
1600m – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 15 January MR 75 Divided Handicap (F & M)

6 – Waya Yire
Breeding: Querari (GER) – Southern Pine by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 1 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She was not disgraced when finishing fourth against males last time. On breeding, she should have no issues with the rise to 1600m. She is doing well at home and from pole position, she should run into the money.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Fair latest against males. Drawn pole and big chance if stays a mile.

Race 9 – 16:40
1600m – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 15 January MR 75 Divided Handicap (F & M)

8 – Escape Artist
Breeding: Pomodoro – Elusive Spirit by Caesour (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 55.0kg
Draw: 6 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She ran a very good race when finishing second over 1700m last time. It is an open race, but she is expected to run well and the drop to 1600m will be spot on. The biggest dangers are the Mike de Kock coupling (Waya Yire and Sybaris) who look to be very well weighted.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:75. Moved up like a winner in latest. Still on the upgrade and merits healthy respect.
