Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 20 (20 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He needed his first run for the Syndicate last time. He is drawn in barrier 20 which is a good thing as the better going seems to be on the outside. He does tend to do too much in the early part of the race, but his trainer feels that he has him under control with the equipment that is fitted. He should be right there at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Snaith JS-2022.02.20. 2nd run after rest. Best MR:79. Decent stable debut. Is a threat.

Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 3 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She won her maiden in fine style over 1400m at Turffontein. She has come along nicely since that outing and makes her handicap debut. She meets a competitive field, but her trainer is of the opinion that she will be involved in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Comfortable maiden winner. Drops back to 1200m and should be up to the task at hand.

Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 3 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He was not suited to the Turffontein Inside course in his last two starts as he prefers a longer straight. He will be fitted with the blinkers for this run which will help him travel a bit better in the race. He won his only attempt on this course and he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:80. Gets blinkers fitted. Is held by number 7 on last run.

He went from gun to tape when winning his last start over this distance on the Vaal Classic. He is doing well at home and is showing good work. He is drawn widest of all, but Keagan de Melo retains the ride and will give him all the necessary assistance. He does take a step up in class, but is capable of following up.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:87. Went from gun to tape last time. Can follow up.

She has been finishing off her races nicely in her last three efforts with the blinkers fitted. She steps up to the 1600m which should suit her well. She does carry a handy galloping mass of 52kgs and is capable of running into the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:94. Fair latest over shorter. Steps up to a mile and shoulders a light weight.

He has come along nicely since winning his maiden with ease. He does take on a much stronger field, but the son of Silvano has ability and is doing well at home. He is drawn on the right side of the track in barrier 20 and is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Gelded 2022.01.26. Trounced rivals in maiden win. Looks progressive and should make his presence felt.
