Vaal Classic

Race 1 – 12:05
1600m – #ThisIsRacing Welcomes You Work Riders Maiden Plate

1 – Vengeance Forever
Breeding: Futura – Gold Trip by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: *Joe Gwingwizha
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 3 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He is having his third run after a rest since moving to the Sean Tarry stable and has had a good preparation heading into this race. He gets the services of capable work rider Joe Gwingwizha and from a good draw of three, he has an excellent chance.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:73. Decent latest and should be cherry-ripe. Big runner.

Race 6 – 15:05
1200m – Racing240 For Racing. For You Graduation Plate (F & M)

4 – Imbewu
Breeding: William Longsword – Natural Beauty by Judpot (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 4 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

She returned to form in her last start over 1160m with the blinkers fitted. Her trainer is of the opinion that she will be suited to this course and distance from a handy draw of four. Remember When deserves healthy respect as she is the best weighted runner. However, Gavin Lerena knows Imbewu well and she should be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:94. Just pipped in latest despite excuses. Should be one of the leading contenders.

Race 7 – 15:35
1200m – Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 MR 80 Handicap

6 – Moya Wa LaLiga
Breeding: Rafeef (AUS) – Mrs Everest (IRE) by Galileo (IRE)
Trainer: Barend Botes/Yolandie Vosloo
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 1 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He seems to have improved since the fitting of the blinkers. He has missed out on some work due to the rain, but the trainer feels that they will get enough work into him before his race. Epic Dream has taken a drop in class and looks to be the horse to beat, but he has a decent chance and should be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:81. Likes this C&D. Fair latest with blinkers fitted and trainers only runner.

Race 7 – 15:35

Breeding: Pomodoro – Al Zahra by Al Mufti (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 9 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

She is carded to race on Monday at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. If taking her place in that race, she will more than likely be scratched for this contest.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:86. *Carded To Race – 25.04.2022.

Race 8 – 16:05
1500m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 3 May MR 78 Handicap

Breeding: Pomodoro – Elusive Spirit by Caesour (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 2 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She takes on male company, but she has a few things in her favour. The blinkers will be re-fitted, she is well drawn and has been very consistent over this type of distance. She gets the services of Calvin Habib who is riding well at present and she has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:76. Better than moderate latest. Back in a handicap and chance on prior form.
