RACE 1: Vaal Racecourse
SAFE PASSAGE is back from a rest and is now a gelding, he should find the improvement needed to win from a plum draw. KING ARTHUR is progressing well and should find the frame with blinkers retained.
Top Tip – SAFE PASSAGE (12)
One to consider – KING ARTHUR (7)
RACE 2: Vaal Racecourse
TWENTY FOUR KAY is the debutant of choice for Candice Dawson and should go well under the capable ride of Lyle Hewitson. WISTERIA AVENUE was a workable 5th on debut and seemed to need a longer run to get going. Now afforded a 2f rise she’s most interesting.
Top Tip – TWENTY FOUR KAY (7)
One to consider – WISTERIA AVENUE (9)
RACE 3: Vaal Racecourse
LA LUVIA was denied by a nose by a stablemate over 7f at Turffontein. The slight up in yardage is no concern and she could eke out compensation. BOLD FORTUNE is consistent of late and could show up well back from 3 months off.
Top Tip – LA LUVIA (6)
One to consider – BOLD FORTUNE (5)
RACE 4: Vaal Racecourse
ARIZONA LADY could make her play now receiving weight from the boys. She’s no shining star but has placed 6 times in 9 runs and should handle this fairly weak field. ONE BLOCK looks best of the rest last seen a much improved 2nd in blinkers over 88f.
Top Tip – ARIZONA LADY (4)
One to consider – ONE BLOCK (1)
RACE 5: Vaal Racecourse
REUNION regained the winning thread latest and the 5+ length margin suggests he’s going to go on the offensive. The slight drop is no issue and he should take plenty of beating. TYRUS EXPRESS was last seen toppled by the reopposing TREND MASTER but now much better off at the weights could press on.
Top Tip – REUNION (1)
One to consider – TYRUS EXPRESS (2)
RACE 6: Vaal Racecourse
PIN UP is back from a short spell and does good work at this course. She has hit 4th the last thrice and could be ready to step further forward today. SOUTHERN SONG has matured nicely when victorious by 3 lengths over this trip at Turffontein and should be right there once more under penalty.
Top Tip – PIN UP (3)
One to consider – SOUTHERN SONG (1)
RACE 7: Vaal Racecourse
BEYOND THE RUNWAY won by a neck on debut and was not disgraced when back after a few months being beaten into 3rd just a head from the front. She should come on nicely for the in-form Paul Peter string. ANCESTRAL PRAYER is known for her strong finishes and should find a way into calculations off a form line of 212 of late.
Top Tip – BEYOND THE RUNWAY (1)
One to consider – ANCESTRAL PRAYER (2)
RACE 8: Vaal Racecourse
NORDIC REBEL is the pick on past form but he has seriously struggled this season to find a win. He has found the frame in 4 of his 8 runs this season and has never been too far back. He might be able to fire up today but is given a most reluctant nod. OYSTER KING is not without a chance as he drops in trip but has a poor draw of 11 to overcome.
Top Tip – NORDIC REBEL (1)
One to consider – OYSTER KING (3)
