Race 5 – 15:45
1200m – MR 66 Handicap
After a decent come-back run having been off for 5 months, he is a reserve runner here and unfortunately he hasn’t cracked a draw (11). However, after running better than expected in his return outing finishing half a length behind Singaswewin. He is now 1.5kg’s better off as he continues to drop down in ratings. With that in mind, he should come on from his last run and make some improvement.
Winning Form comment: Finished right behind 8 on last run & is 1.5kgs better off.
Race 7 – 16:55
1000m – Assessment Plate
That was a decent first run out of the maidens when he travelled to Flamingo Park 3 weeks ago, but he is obviously back in Gauteng facing much stronger here. He may find this a bit tough, but it will bring him on for his next start when he should be cherry ripe at attempt for the winners enclosure.
Winning Form comment: Fair post maiden effort on the sand, back on the turf, watch.
Race 8 – 17:30
1000m – MR 74 Handicap
This is his first comeback run after receiving a 3 month suspension for a nosebleed, in his last start. That was clearly a good enough reason to completely write that attempt off. He has been working well at home without any hint of that previous mishap, we are hoping for a run should he replicate his previous form as he is fit and well.
Winning Form comment: Excuses in last run, drops to the minimum trip, watch.
