Vaal Classic

Race 1 – 12:30

3 – Magwinya
Breeding: William Longsword – Seattle Lady by Sail From Seattle (CAN)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 8 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He was very green on debut and the blinkers will be fitted for this race. The headgear should help him focus on the task at hand. S’manga Khumalo steps into the saddle and we are hoping to see improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Is held by number 7 on debut. Khumalo takes the ride and can improve if jumping on terms.

Race 1 – 12:30
1000m – #ThisIsRacing Welcomes You Maiden Juvenile Plate

8 – Vuvuzela Umlilo
Breeding: William Longsword – Caitlin (NZ) by Dylan Thomas (IRE)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Gabriel Pieterse -2.5kg
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He was also green on debut. He is showing improved work at home and gets the services of 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Gabriel Pieterse. He is a temperamental type who will need a couple of runs to bring him on and teach him to settle.

Winning Form Comment: Brother to:CHILLY WINTER5m(35: 4,14). Beaten by subsequent winner in debut run on this course. Should improve.

Race 4 – 14:15
2000m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Maiden Plate

2 – Atlantic City
Breeding: Quasillo (GER) – Gilded Tigress by Tiger Ridge (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He has been disappointing in his last two starts. The ear muffs get fitted for this run and we are hoping that the headgear does the trick. Calvin Habib takes the ride and we are hoping for an improved effort.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Snaith JS-2022.01.03. 3rd run after rest. Gelded 2022.01.25. Best MR:73. Will be at peak fitness. Watch.

Race 8 – 16:35

Breeding: Oasis Dream (GB) – Same Jurisdiction by Mambo In Seattle (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He jumps from barrier six and should use his early gate speed to get into a handy position. He did show improvement in his last start with the blinkers fitted and if repeating that effort in this line-up, he should have an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2021.11.10. Best MR:79. The 3rd & 4th horse in latest have both won since. Chance.
