Race 3 – 13:05
1200m – Classic Day 5 March MR 80 Handicap

1 – Hope Is Power
Breeding: Soft Falling Rain – Sarasota by Kahal (GB)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Kaidan Brewer -2.5kg
Wgt: 61.5kg
Draw: 16 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He was disappointing in his last run and is much better than the effort suggests. He gets the services of 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Kaidan Brewer who has won on the son of Soft Falling Rain in the past. We are hoping to see him improve and find his best form.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:89. Faced stronger in latest. Apprentice claim will help and can go close.

Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Water Bird by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Jeffrey Syster
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 10 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He ran a good race when finishing second over 1000m last time. He is holding his form well and with apprentice Jeffrey Syster retaining the ride, he should be competitive once again.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:102. Followed up recent win well. 2nd in only attempt on this course.

Race 7 – 15:10

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Craig Zackey
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 16 (19 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He has dropped in the ratings to 71. Craig Zackey suggested that he steps up to the 1400m and that the blinkers get removed. He runs well on this course and we are hoping that he returns to best form.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Moderate latest in KZN. Placed in both attempts on this course and can show.
