Thursday 25 November 2021
Vaal

Race 3 – 12:40
1400m – Highveld Racing.co.za Maiden Plate

9 – Afropolitan
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Als Secret by Captain Al
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Joshwin Solomons -1.5kg
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 9 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He is making his debut over 1400m with 1.5kgs claiming apprentice Joshwin Solomons in the saddle. The son of Master Of My Fate is showing nice work at home, but is likely to be green and may need the run. The effort will bring him on for future races.

Winning Form Comment: *Master Of My Fate gelding(Cost R 75000).

14 – Soweto Spina
Breeding: Var (USA) – Jettin’ Along by Jet Master
Trainer: Candice Dawson
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 11 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is returning from a 17-week break. Ideally, he would have been better around the turn but he did not crack a good draw. If he brings his work to the racecourse and if suited to the straight track, he will be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 17 wks. Would have strengthened up during the break. Should go close if fit.

Race 6 – 14:25
1400m – Betontab.co.za MR 80 Handicap

7 – Tambora
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Ash Cloud by Black Minnaloushe (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Raymond Danielson
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 6 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He makes his debut for the stable and races down the Vaal straight for the first time. Raymond Danielson takes the ride, and the stable want to get him to settle in the race and run on at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Snaith JS-2021.09.01. Rested 12 wks. Best MR:85. Stable debut. Chance if fit and well.

Race 7 – 15:00
1200m – Tellytrack.com Graduation Plate

3 – Dockofthebay
Breeding: Rafeef (AUS) – Sausalito Bay by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 3 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He runs in a Graduation Plate over 1200m and is slightly out at the weights. He was unplaced in his last start, but that was a much stronger field. He is doing very well at home and his last gallop was good. A place chance is expected.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:97. Faced stronger in latest. Drops back to 1200m and can threaten.

Race 10 – 16:40
1200m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 30 November MR 72 Handicap

7 – Ramchandani Road
Breeding: Pathfork (USA) – The Taj by National Assembly (CAN)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Mark Khan
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 13 (20 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/1

He races over 1200m in a big and competitive field. He was slightly disappointing in his last start, but was only three-lengths back. The experienced Mark Khan rides and he is expected to go handy. An each way chance is expected by the stable.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:86. Brings decent KZN form and should be one of the leading contenders.
