Upcoming Weekend Runners – Turffontein Inside – Sunday 30 August 2020

We have two runners to look out for this Sunday 30 August 2020. See more about what we expect from both of them here.

Sunday 30 August 2020
Turffontein Inside Course

Race 1 – 12:33
1200m – Interbet.co.za – 0861 150 160 Maiden Plate (C&G)

6 – Catch Me Holly
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Craig Bantam
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 1 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

A nicely bred son of Pomodoro, he comes into this debut test on the back of some useful work at home. This will however be an educational outing for him and we’ll be more than satisfied with a top half finish.

Winning Form Comment: Brother to: SOCRATES 6g (16: 4, 8). *Pomodoro gelding.

12 – Purple Warrior
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 5 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

Carded to race on Thursday 27th August we’ll have to see how he takes his run before we decide if he does in fact take part this Sunday 30th. He has shown enough at home to be considered for minor money on debut, but it is doubtful that he will run this Sunday. With that said, here is our pre-race comment for his debut run:

Having shown up well in his grass work leading into this debut effort, he finds a relatively modest field and the plum draw will certainly aid his cause. A son of Flower Alley, he doesn’t give the impression that he will have much early speed but we’ll be expecting him to finish off this 1450m test well and it won’t be a surprise to see him finish in the first 4.

Winning Form Comment: Brother to: REBEL ALLIANCE 7g (27: 2,15). *Flower Alley gelding.*Carded To Race – 27.08.2020.
