8 – Escape Artist
Breeding: Pomodoro – Elusive Spirit by Caesour (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 53.0kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She is trying the 1700m for the first time and it is her third run after a rest. She is receiving weight and if seeing out the extra distance on offer, she should go close to winning.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:73. The 2nd horse in latest has won since. Back against own sex and is a big runner.

Race 4 – 13:40
1500m – WSB Supporter Of SA Racing MR 80 Handicap (F & M)

3 – Twice The Trip
Breeding: Twice Over (GB) – Tripinthemist by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 9 (17 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

She is having her third run after a rest and the only concern is that she gives weight away to older horses. She is in a good space heading into this race and she should show improvement.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:94. Is held by number 2 on moderate latest. Should be cherry-ripe and can show.

Race 5 – 14:15
2400m – WSB Leader In SA Racing MR 76 Handicap (F & M)

2 – Mrs Hotline
Breeding: Irish Flame – Galingale by National Emblem
Trainer: Candice Dawson
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

The shorter straight on the Turffontein Inside course didn’t suit her running style last time. She is back at the Vaal and is doing well at home. The going is predicted to be soft, which is a concern as she is not suited to the wet going. However, she is in a good space and can run into the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Will love the longer run-in. Has upset potential.

Race 7 – 15:25
1475m – World Sports Betting Grand Heritage (Non-Black Type)

Breeding: Silvano (GER) – Soft Landing by Jet Master
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Ashton Arries
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 3 (26 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He deserves his place in this feature race and carries a handy galloping mass of 52kgs. He is in a good space leading up to this race and the drop to 1475m should suit him well. It is a big and open race but with a bit of luck, he should fight out the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2021.01.14. Best MR:90. Didn’t settle in latest. Will love the drop in trip and light mass will help.

Race 8 – 16:00
1475m – World Sports Betting Heritage Consolation (Non-Black Type)

Trainer: Sean Tarry

It is a big field of 15 runners and it is a very open race. He is a consistent sort and has got as good a chance as any of the others in this race. He has a nice weight to carry and he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:91. Consistent sort. Is 2kgs better off at the weights with number 10 on latest.

Race 9 – 16:35
