Winning Form Best Bets
Race 1: FLY LIKE AN EAGLE(1)
Race 3: LEGATEE(3)
Race 4: KATIE EM(8)
Race 9: BURLAINE FOREST(5)
Race 4: CAPE SUGARBIRD(2) – TOP BET
Jockey: Richard FOURIE – Trainer: Justin SNAITH
CAPE SUGARBIRD looks an exciting young prospect and she has won two of her three starts to date. She trounced her field on her debut in the Cape before having excuses for her poor comeback run. However, the daughter of Trippi showed exactly what she is capable of when she slammed older rivals en route to victory over this trip at Durbanville, four weeks ago, despite being slightly slow into stride. The Snaith inmate should be cherry-ripe on her third run after the break and will take a power of beating on her local debut. She is extremely well treated at the weights.
Race 5: WHITE FLIGHT(3)
Jockey: Muzi YENI – Trainer: Yvette BREMNER
This is an exciting and intriguing contest that sees the imported daughter of Doyen, WHITE FLIGHT have her second local start. She was very impressive when she showed a great turn of foot to win her South African debut in the maidens over ten furlongs at Arlington, two weeks ago, despite returning from a lengthy absence. She rises in class today but that run would have brought her on considerably and she will be more accustomed to the local conditions. Her trainer drops her sharply in trip which is often a concern but she possesses an eye-catching burst of speed and could be equal to the task. This longer run-in will suit her well and she has bright claims of following up.
Race 6: VAUCLAIR(4)
Jockey: Raymond DANIELSON – Trainer: Tara LAING
VAUCLAIR has been a revelation since arriving in PE and has won four of his last six races, all over today’s c & d. He has accounted for most of today’s rivals but has naturally gone up in the weights. There are a few runners that are weighted to finish right alongside and even reverse the form with the top rating but the son of Var shows plenty of determination and could yet be improving. He gets a top jockey up and can still defy all the odds.
Race 8: JOHNNY ROCKETS(10) – ALGOA CUP
Jockey: Glen HATT – Trainer: Justin SNAITH
Today’s topliner is the usual extremely competitive event that pits the locals against some talented visitors from the Cape. PE’s last big raceday was dominated by the Snaith stable in May and the Cape conditioner could again steal the show. He saddles two runners in this contest and despite not being the stable elect, JOHNNY ROCKETS could continue veteran jockey Glen Hatt’s brilliant form. This son of Jallad has improved significantly since the turn of the year and he possesses a serious turn of foot. He stays very well and he finished strongly for a close fourth in the Winter Derby over 2400m at Kenilworth in his penultimate outing, despite astonishingly being reported to be not striding out. He clearly needed his comeback run last time and will strip fitter. He has the class to match a field of this calibre and today’s long run-in will suit him down to the ground. He has the worst draw but that isn’t a big concern as he generally races from well off the pace. His fellow Capetonian, ABERCROMBIE could be the one to chase him home. This son of Trippi had a fair three-year old career but could still be a late maturer. He met a top sort on his comeback run and will enjoy this trip.
Race 9: PLACIDO(4)
PLACIDO is the only reserve runner in the Algoa Cup and is unlikely to get into that event. However, he could be a real contender in this handicap. The son of Miesque’s Approval is better than his last two starts and is a totally different proposition on this track. He has improved since being equipped with blinkers and though he is possibly best over an extra furlong, he should go close in this field.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 7: EBRO(7) (Each Way)
Jockey: Juan-Paul v.d.MERWE – Trainer: Dorrie SHAM
This is another very competitive contest and many of the principle contenders will need plenty of ‘luck in running’. EBRO is one of those that is expected to be involved in the finish and he is often in the mix. The son of Tamburlaine is very consistent and often produces an eye-catching late burst. He did just that over the minimum trip at Arlington on Monday and is much better over today’s extra furlong. He has an inside draw which could be a big advantage as he is likely to get a clear passage over the final furlong. He has been successful in this company before and he will be running on nicely at the finish.
