Breeding: Twice Over (GB) – Syrian Sonja by Damascus Gate (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Raymond Danielson
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 5 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He was an easy winner when shedding his maiden tag last time. He does meet a stronger field, but he has ability and is doing well at home. If not too green on his first run on the Vaal Classic course, he should be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Won maiden with ease. Another Level has come out and won since. Has plenty of scope.

Jockey: *Joshwin Solomons -1.5kg
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 2 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He is returning from a 16-week break and is having his first run as a gelding. He is better suited to further and will be in need of this outing.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 16 wks. Gelded 2021.06.29. Best MR:81. The gelding may have done the trick. Can find a form return.

Race 7 – 16:45

Jockey: *Xola Jacobs – 4.0kg
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 6 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is having his first run out the maidens which is never easy. The six draw over this course and distance is not ideal. He does however get the services of a 4kgs claiming apprentice. The stable a hoping for a positive run.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:74. Won maiden well despite hanging over this distance. Back on the turf and looks to have scope.
