Jockey: Derreck DAVID - Trainer: Gavin VAN ZYL

SPEKBOOM has shown steady progress with racing and he stayed on for a close 4th despite being slow into stride over 1700m at the Vaal, recently. He produced his career best effort over this c & d and has scope for improvement. He should be competitive in this field.

Jockey: Weichong MARWING - Trainer: Ormond FERRARIS

ERIN continues to make up for some lost time when she suffered a setback and she is progressing smartly. The daughter of Fort Wood has been consistent since the comeback, despite rising to feature company. She has enjoyed most of her success on this track and was running on late when 4th in a graded event over a mile, recently. She should relish this extra distance and will go very close. She is favourably treated by the weights and Marwing knows her really well.

Jockey: Juan-Paul v.d.MERWE - Trainer: Michael AZZIE

MOONLIT VENICE is above-average and is a gutsy campaigner. She has shown pleasing form on this track and despite a poor start and a big mass, she went very close on her last run over a mile on the sand. The daughter of Windrush conceded chunks of weight to older rivals that day and is ready for this step-up in class. She is drawn in pole and should give a very good account of herself with just 52kgs.

Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Johan Janse v/Vuuren

SUEDETTE has regained her best form in recent outings and she didn't disgrace herself against stronger last time. She went very close to winning her penultimate run over this c & d and the recent two pound drop in her rating is a major help. She is blessed with another good draw and should be very competitive in this field.

(Each Way)
Jockey: Ian STURGEON - Trainer: Grant MAROUN

VIKING HERO has produced two smart comeback runs and he was outrun late into 2nd by the fast improving three-year old DOING IT FOR DAN over this trip at the Vaal, two weeks ago. He was handed a three pound penalty for his troubles but is now 2kgs better off with his conqueror and has his third run after the layoff. He should push the top selection even harder this time around.
