Brandan Gaillard: Value is always to be found, even in a difficult meeting as this one at Flamingo Park on Monday and one horse who could go close, even perhaps winning, is Firefoot in Race 6, a MR 72 Handicap over 1800m.
Nkosinkosi Nkosi: If form is any sort of indication, than there is no doubt that most punters will rely heavily on jockey Gavin Lerena to safely deliver Pick 6 banker Boutique to victory when she lines up in Race 6 at Turffontein on Sunday, a FM 71 Handicap over 1450m on the Inside track.
Jack Milner: Blossom found Return Flight too good for her in the Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks over 2450m at Turffontein in March but this daughter of Silvano could get some compensation when she lines up in the Grade 3 Track And Ball Oaks over 2400m at Scottsville on Saturday.
JUAN TWO THREE
Brendan Gaillard: Trainer Alan Greeff has struck a real purple patch of form and his sprinting star, Juan Two Three, can take out Race 5, a Pinnacle Stakes over 1200m on the Polytrack on Friday.
Jack Milner: The form of the Grade 1 races at Scottsville will come under the spotlight in two Juvenile Plates at the Vaal on Thursday.
Trevor Reid: Title-chasing jockey Anton Marcus has been riding winners all over the country recently – from race meetings on the Highveld to both the turf and Polytracks at Greyville, ‘Superman’ has been booting home the winners with regularity.
Jack Milner: Swingers and Exactas look the bets to lineup at Scottsville on Wednesday.
Trevor Reid: There are several promising types to follow at Kenilworth where an eight-race card on the winter track is scheduled for Monday.
JOHAN JANSE VAN VUUREN
Bonginkosi Nkosi: For the betting public, the KwaZulu-Natal barrier trial system is a massive positive because it affords an in-form horse the opportunity to come into a competitive race having at least had a run under the belt, which in a way cancels out the disadvantage of ring-rust.
