Tuesday 29th September 2020
Vaal Classic

Race 1 – 12:40
1200m – Welcome To The Vaal Maiden Plate (3 Year Olds)

7 – Purple Panther
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 8 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

After that surprising debut when finishing second ahead of a subsequent winner, he now lines up for his follow up attempt at leaving the maidens. Despite the wide draw, the stable feel that he has come on nicely from that run and should have the credentials to be one of the leading contenders here. He should have a solid each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Smart debut effort. 3rd horse in that race (Al Qaqaa) has won since.

Race 2 – 13:15
1200m – All To Come Maiden Plate (3YO Fillies)

7 – You Deserve It
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 4 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She was very green on debut and didn’t have the luck in running that we would’ve liked. Having lost momentum due to the lack of running room in the middle stages of the race, she seemed to get going late and finished off well to take 5th place. With experience under her belt, we’ll be expecting to see some improvement here and she should have a fair place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Sister to:*LOOK TO THE SKY 4g (13: 3, 3), PALACE ROSE 5m (27: 1, 9). Fair debut effort. Should make the natural improvement.

Race 3 – 13:50
1600m – Tab Pays Full Dividend, No Limits Maiden Plate (3 Year Olds)

11 – Purple Magic
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 9 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

After that decent debut a few weeks back when showing signs of greenness before running on late, he now steps out for his follow up attempt and we’ll be expecting a promising effort from this son of Pathfork. The form of his debut has been franked and with the expected improvement to come, he should have a useful place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Brother to: HILILYHILILYHILO 8g(21: 3, 4),LOTUS LILY LAKE 9g(20: 2, 8). Form of debut run has been franked. Expect natural progress.

Race 7 – 16:05
1200m – Computaform Online Classified Stakes

10 – Strikeitlikeamatch
Trainer: Barend Botes
Jockey: Philasande Mxoli (-4.0)
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 11 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He hasn’t shown much of late and as previously mentioned, time is running out for him as he is now getting on in his racing career. If no improvement is shown this time around we may have to seriously consider our options as far as keeping him in training is concerned.

Winning Form Comment:  Best MR:82. Upset potential on best form shown.
