Tuesday 23 August 2022
Vaal

Race 2 – 13:30
1200m – TAB Telebet 0861 000 822 Qualified Maiden Plate

6 – Vuvuzela Umlilo
Breeding: William Longsword – Caitlin (NZ) by Dylan Thomas (IRE)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: #Rachel Venniker -1.5kg
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 13 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He has been disappointing in his three runs to date. He has been putting up some good work at home and Rachel Venniker steps into the saddle. We are expecting to see improvement from the son of William Longsword.

Winning Form Comment: Three moderate attempts. Habib takes the ride and needs to show more.

Race 4 – 14:40
1600m – Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Handicap

1 – Atlantic City
Breeding: Quasillo (GER) – Gilded Tigress by Tiger Ridge (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He has shown good improvement in his last two starts with the blinkers fitted. It is his first run on the Vaal straight course and he does not meet a strong field. He is capable of winning with S’manga Khumalo in the saddle.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2022.01.25. Best MR:73. Good last two starts and is likely to race on the speed. Respect.

Race 8 – 16:40

1200m – Next Vaal Racemeeting Thursday 30 August MR 74 Handicap

6 – Phinda Mzala
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Facinating Filly by Antonius Pius (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jeffrey Syster
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 12 (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He was unlucky not to have won his last start over 1000m. The son of Philanthropist has placed over this course and distance in the past. He has improved since Jeffrey Syster stepped into the saddle and another good run is expected.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Good last two starts. Chance with better luck in running.

Race 8 – 16:40

Jockey: …………
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 9 (18 Runners)

He is reserve runner number 2 and is likely not to get a run. He cost himself leaving the starting stalls in his last two starts. The blinkers have been removed and we are hoping to see a form return.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:81. Ignore latest. Gets blinkers removed and can find a form return in this line-up.
