Saturday 5 December 2020
Vaal Racecourse

Race 2 – 13:20
1200m – WSB Live Roulette Maiden Plate

9 – Purple Warrior
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Sherman Brown
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 19 (20 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He has his last chance here, after showing very little in his first four starts so far. He’ll be fitted with the blinkers this time and the stable have opted to block his ears to try and keep him calm and focussed. If he doesn’t manage to improve, we’ll have to call it a day with him.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Blinkers ON. Best MR:59. Poor form. Gets blinkers fitted and needs to improve.

Race 5 – 15:10
1400m – WSB R10000 First Deposit Match Merit Rated 87 Hcp (3YO)

1 – Purple Panther
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Piere Strydom
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 2 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

This is a rather competitive handicap for him, being his first run out of the maidens, but he gets the services of Piere Strydom in the irons and it should be a nice learning curve for this son of Coup De Grace. With the form line of his last run holding up very nicely, the stable are confident of a good performance from him and he should be able to find the first 4 places.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Rewarded for consistency in latest. Two winners have come out of that form line.

Race 9 – 17:25
1600m – WSB Thanks You Maiden Plate (3YO Fillies)

6 – You Deserve It
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 2 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4//1

The blinkers will be removed this time, after that modest performance last time out when dropping back to the sprints. She now steps up to the mile and Gavin Lerena does duty here, where she is expected to show big improvement and the stable believe that she has the credentials to finish in the first 5 places.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:70. Is better than last two starts. Will enjoy the rise in distance.
