Tuesday 12 January 2021
Vaal Racecourse

Race 2 – 13:05
1800m – All To Come Merit Rated 104 Handicap

2 – Seattle Force
Trainer: Stuart Pettigrew
Jockey: Philasande Mxoli (-2.5)
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 7 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He has returned to Gauteng where he appears to have performed to the best of his ability. A slight concern going into this race, is the breathing noise he has been making during some of his prep work at home and that could adversely affect his performances going forward. With this being his first run back after a rest, he will most certainly need the run and we will be using this outing as a gauge on how to address his breathing issue.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Moore D-2020.07.11. Rested 26 wks. Best MR:108. Returns to Pettigrew. Watch.

Race 6 – 15:20
1000m – Tab Pays Full Dividend, No Limits Merit Rated 80 Handicap

3 – Kings Road
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 3 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He has been showing some decent work at home, but appears to be rather inconsistent when it comes to race time. In addition, his record at the Vaal has been rather disappointing with only the one place from six attempts. With that said, Jason Gates regains the ride after that solid performance in his penultimate start and a repeat of that effort should bring him right into the equation here.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:81. 1000m specialist. Went close under Gates in penultimate run.
