14 – Soweto Spina
Breeding: Var (USA) – Jettin’ Along by Jet Master
Trainer: Candice Dawson
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He is returning from a 22-week break and the stable have opted to bring him back to 1200m. He is showing good work back at home and with S’manga Khumalo in the saddle, he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 22 wks. Would have strengthened up during time off the track. Should improve.

Race 3 – 13:00
1600m – Computaform Online Maiden Plate

8 – Fill Your Boots
Breeding: Coup De Grace (USA) – Only In Philly (USA) by Polish Numbers (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 12 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He ran a fair race on debut and has come on since the run. He takes a step up to the mile and should have improvement to come. He can run into the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Needed debut effort. Will love the extra 400m on offer and should make the natural improvement.

Race 6 – 14:50
1400m – Wishing You A Happy New Year MR 72 Handicap

4 – Moya Wa LaLiga
Breeding: Rafeef (AUS) – Mrs Everest (IRE) by Galileo (IRE)
Trainer: B Botes / Y Vosloo
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 4 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He is a nice horse in the making and has a bright future ahead of him. The stable feel that the 1400m may still be on the short side for him. He gets the services of S’manga Khumalo and has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Fair post maiden run. The form of that race has been franked. Has plenty of scope.

Race 8 – 16:00
1100m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 4 January MR 79 Handicap

3 – Goliath Heron
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Water Bird by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Jeffrey Syster
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 1 (17 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He was disappointing in his last start over 1160m at Turffontein. It is a competitive field, apprentice Jeffrey Syster returns to the saddle and we are hoping to see improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:102. Takes a drop in class. Can return to form.
