Race 2: SYDS LIASON (10)
Jockey: Murray C - Trainer: De Kock M

SYDS LIASON produced a promising debut effort over 1450m on the Inside course. The manner in which he stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. The son of Greys Inn returns from a 20-week break today, during which time he was gelded. He gets the blinkers fitted for this contest and if not in need of the run, should be the one to beat.


Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Peter P

CATCH TWENTYTWO should have finished closer to the winner last time as he hung in the latter stages. It must be noted that Nourbese who finished second that day has come out and won a Grade 2 since. The son of Elusive Fort has been gelded which may have been what he needed. From his good draw of two, he should be the one they all have to beat.

Race 6: TOP SHOT (4)
Jockey: Schwarz D - Trainer: Alexander G

TOP SHOT was not disgraced when finishing third in the Gold Bowl last time. Despite receiving a bump at the 400m mark that day, the manner in which he stayed on at the finish was encouraging. The 9yo gelding is having his peak run this afternoon and with a bit of luck in running, may be the one to beat.

Race 7: WAR OF ATHENA (1)
Jockey: Khumalo S - Trainer: Matchett P

WAR OF ATHENA ran an absolute cracker in the Grade 1 Allan Robertson Championship last time. The manner in which she ran on in the closing stages caught the eye. It must be noted that the form of that race has worked out well. The daughter of Act Of War takes on much weaker company this afternoon and should be too good for this field.


Race 9: KURT'S APPROVAL (10)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Warren B

KURT'S APPROVAL was unlucky not to have won last time as his pilot dropped his crop. He has won once and finished second twice from five starts on this course. Collen Storey retains the ride this afternoon and he will be looking to make amends.
