Thursday 10 February 2022

Race 3 – 12:50
1500m – Racing240 For Racing. For You Maiden Plate (F & M)

1 – Fashionigma
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – All About Style (IRE) by Hawk Wing (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 9 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

She did not enjoy the yielding conditions in her comeback run last time and is better than the effort suggests. There are a few horses with decent form in this race, but if producing her best she is more than capable of being competitive. She is a temperamental type and we are hoping to see improvement.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:80. Needed comeback run over a mile. Chance on good prior form.

Race 7 – 15:10
1400m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 MR 96 Open Handicap ( 3 year olds)

2 – Imbewu
Breeding: William Longsword – Natural Beauty by Judpot (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She races on the straight course over 1400m, which will suit her. Trainer Sean Tarry feels that she has ability and with S’manga Khumalo in the saddle, she should be involved in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:94. Fair last three starts. Khumalo takes the ride and can improve.

Race 7 – 15:10
1400m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 MR 96 Open Handicap ( 3 year olds)

8 – Waya Yire
Breeding: Querari (GER) – Southern Pine by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 6 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

Her trainer is of the opinion that 1400m on the straight course is what she is looking for. She does take on male company, but carries a handy galloping mass of 52kgs. She is in a good space and has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Fair latest and the form has been franked. Drops back to 1400m and can earn.

Race 8 – 15:45
1400m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 15 February 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: 57.0kg
Draw: 4 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He took on much stronger in the Grade 3 Sea Cottage Stakes last time. The son of Rafeef will enjoy the drop in distance and with S’manga Khumalo retaining the ride, he has a strong each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:81. Jockey felt something amiss in latest. Drops in class and can win.

Race 8 – 15:45
1400m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 15 February MR 80 Handicap

12 – Tambora
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Ash Cloud by Black Minnaloushe (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 54.5kg
Draw: 6 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He was unlucky last time as the winner shifted onto him in the closing stages. He is starting to find his best form and is doing well at home. Calvin Habib would have learnt about him in his last start and we are expecting another good effort.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:85. Watch form line of Race 7 number 9 – Letsdoit.
