Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 4 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is better than his last start as it came too soon after his previous run. He is doing well at home and is putting up some good work. S’manga Khumalo takes the ride and if repeating his penultimate run, he should have an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:84. Last run came too soon. Is 2kgs better off at the weights with number 4 on penultimate run.

Race 5 – 14:40
2000m – Racehorse Owners Association MR 80 Handicap

Breeding: Futura – Gold Trip by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 53.5kg
Draw: 4 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He is doing well at home, jumps from a good draw and carries a handy galloping mass of 53.5kgs. It is a competitive handicap and Spin Doctor looks to be the horse to beat. If seeing out the 2000m, he is expected to fight out the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Sands A E-2021.11.16. Best MR:73. Fair post maiden run. Can run into the placings.

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 4 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He is returning from a lengthy 33-week break. He is putting up some nice work at home, but may be in need of this run. He will be ridden from off the speed and we are hoping to see him finishing his race off strongly.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 33 wks. Best MR:90. Returns from a lengthy break and may need the run.

Race 8 – 16:20

He has disappointed in his last three starts and has been changing legs in running. The son of Quasillo is trying the blinkers for the first time and we are hoping to see improvement.
