Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Craig Zackey
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 11 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She is returning from a 27-week break and this 1000m may be a touch on the short side for her. She is not well-weighted and will be in need of the run. This run will bring her on for future races.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 27 wks. Best MR:109. Fair latest before the break. Placed in both attempts over this distance.

Draw: 3 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He was in need of his last start when returning from an 11-week break. Once again, he carries a big mass of 62kgs and hoping this run will get him fit for Summer Cup day. It is a strong field, but he can run into the quartets.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:126. Needed latest. Can improve.

He won a good race in his last start over 1000m on the polytrack. He does carry a big weight, but the services of 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Philasande Mxoli will help him. He is in a good space and should be competitive once again.

He has produced two decent runs since returning from a 14-week break. He is coming into this race at peak fitness and he gets the services of a 2.5kg claiming apprentice. If getting off to a good beginning, he has a first three chance.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:87. Fair latest in this class. Has peak run and appie’s only mount.

He is much better than his last start over 1200m and he is still learning about racing. He won his maiden on this course and gets the services of top jockey S’manga Khumalo. He carries a nice weight of 56kgs and should fight out the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:84. Better than moderate latest. Close-up in handicap debut and can feature.
