Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: *Joshwin Solomons
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He produced a pleasing comeback run over this course and distance, four weeks ago. This run should bring him to peak fitness, but he is not out of it and has claims on form. As a gelding, he may even go further in time.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Gelded 2022.01.04. Best MR:97. Is 1.5kgs better off at the weights with number 1 on latest.

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 6 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He has gone through the divisions and meets a very competitive field. He is in a good space heading into this race and is doing well at home. We are hoping for a positive run against this type of opposition and he can place.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:102. The 4th horse in latest has won since. Don’t ignore.

Race 6 – 15:20
1160m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Pinnacle Stakes (F & M)

Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Circle Of Speed (AUS) by Sebring (AUS)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 4 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

She should have finished in the placings in the Grade 1 SA Fillies Sprint last time. She meets Sound Of Warning who finished ahead of her that day. She has taken that run well and if this race hasn’t come too soon, she should have a big winning chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:113. Is 1kg better off at the weights with number 1 on latest.

Race 7 – 15:55
1400m – TAB Telebet 0861 000 822 Pinnacle Stakes

Breeding: Vercingetorix – Al Shiba by Al Mufti (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 9 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

His last run in the Grade 2 Drill Hall Stakes is best ignored. He comes into this race reasonably well-weighted. Gavin Lerena steps back into the saddle and we are hoping to see him return to form.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:118. Ran in a Grade 2 last time and is versatile. Capable on best form.
