Jackpot (race 5-8). - Cost: R54.00

























Race 5.

There are six unraced runners in this the first leg of the Jackpot, so as is always the case in these types of races, a keen eye should be kept on the betting markets to get some indication as to whether the connection believe that they can win first time out. Of the raced runners, SHADOW COLOUR could be the best. He had finished second four time in a row before ending up in third place last time out over five furlongs, 4.3L behind the winner. He returns from a 22 week break, but was a fluent winner of his only barrier trial. He has a handy draw four and should be right up there when they hit the line. CHALEUR BAY is a 2yr old filly taking on the boys and older horses. She makes her debut after winning both of her barrier trials and is drawn one outside the top choice. KIBOSH returns from a 20 week rest, but has had the benefit of two barrier trials, finishing third in the latest. She is a 3yr old filly who overraced in the early and middle stages of her last outing over 1300M before being defeated by a short-head and the form of that race has been franked. She will have to negotiate a wide draw ten, but nevertheless should be included in all bets.

Race 6.

SAQUON has finished second in his last two outings, the latest over a mile, just under two lengths back from the winner. He hit the front as the field turn into the home straight that day and was only overhauled very late. He drops in distance, but did win over 1100M three runs back, so this should not be an issue. He is drawn the widest of them all in gate nine, but he does have his peak run after returning from a 26 week absence and is taken to be the best bet on the day’s card. SAMMY finished seventh in his latest run when stepping up to seven furlongs, 6.7L behind the winner, but two runners from that event have subsequently come out and won, so that form could prove decent. He jumps from draw six and could emerge as the biggest danger to the top pick. VIGOROUS FLOW is drawn one inside the latter and has only had the four runs to date. He followed up his penultimate run victory over a mile with a second place finish next time out over the same trip, just a head back from the winner. He has his first run since an 18 week rest, but has had the one barrier trial to showcase his well-being.

Race 7.

MENSA MISSILE won his penultimate start over six furlongs by one and a half lengths and then went on to finish eighth next time out over seven furlongs, 12.1L behind the winner, but it must be noted that he was severely interfered with at the 900M pole and then did not get the clearest of passages in the home straight. As such, that effort is best ignored. He faces a wide draw ten, but if bouncing back to his better form, he should be a big runner in this line-up. ISORICH showed marked improvement when going from jump to wire to win his last start over the c&d by just over a length. He held off all the later challenger courageously that day and if showing the same determination here, he could be difficult to peg back in the dash down to the wire. THISWILLDOUS had his consistency rewarded with a 2.8L win last time out over seven furlongs. He is also a speedy sort who is drawn one outside the latter and should not be lightly dismissed here.

Race 8.

Today’s value bet, HENSCHEL led into the straight before sprinting clear of his field at the 300M mark to record a six and a half length victory last time out over six furlongs. That form was given a boost when three runners from that contest having subsequently won a race. He returns from an 18 week absence, but he was a comfortable winner of his only barrier trial. He does have a wide draw ten, but on the plus side, he will have 3kgs removed from his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. A 3yr old and a 4yr old filly could chase him home, with the slight preference going to MISS KONO who has won two of her last three runs over five furlongs, the latest by nearly half a length, this despite racing three wide on the turn. She has a kinder gate six and should keep the former honest. EGYPTIAN MISSILE’S jockey felt that there was something amiss with his mount and stopped riding her out in the straight when finishing 4.3L adrift of the victor last time out over 1100M and a line should be drawn through that effort. She has a cozy draw two and has her peak outing after returning from an 18 week break.
