Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
One of five fillies in the race, FRESNAYE represents the Joey Ramsden yard. She appears to have found her best form at the right time, since arriving in KZN and her connections’ expectations will be boosted by that impressive win last time out. That followed a smart return after a rest in her penultimate start, when finishing just behind Eye’s Wide Open in the WSB Greyville 1900m (Gr2). Greg Cheyne steps up to take the ride this time and having won this race back in 2009 aboard Big City Life, he knows what it takes to land the big one and draw 13 shouldn’t dissuade her followers.
Verdict: Smart filly must be included on good penultimate behind EYES WIDE OPEN.
