Debut run. It is a strong juvenile contest, and she takes on winners. She is doing nicely at home but is expected to be green in running and need the run. This outing will bring her on for future races.

Winning Form Comment: *Buffalo Bill Cody filly(Cost R200000).

Race 5 – 14:55
1800m – Play Soccer 6, 10 & 13 MR 96 Handicap

Breeding: Rafeef (AUS) – Badger Creek by Ideal World (USA)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 55.5kg
Draw: 3 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He was a tad disappointing in his last start over 2000m at Turffontein. He won his only attempt on this course and is ideally suited to 1800m. Muzi Yeni retains the ride and from his good draw of three, he should be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:90. Below par in latest. Chance on attractive prior form.

Race 5 – 14:55
1800m – Play Soccer 6, 10 & 13 MR 96 Handicap

Breeding: Dynasty – Doris Duke by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Brett Crawford
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 9 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She is holding her form nicely and was touched off in her last outing over 2000m at Turffontein. Two of her three career victories have come over this distance. She is doing exceptionally well at home and she is expected to be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:84. Just touched off in latest and may be difficult to peg back at the wire.
