Jack Milner: Trainers Mike de Kock and Alec Laird have repudiated remarks made by former Randjesfontein track manager that the tracks were not properly maintained on Winning Ways.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: Although the jockey-trainer combination of apprentice Dennis Schwarz and Gary Alexander have an impressive 33.33 % win-strike rate and an even higher 40% place-strike rate, they disappointed a few punters when failing to deliver Pick 6 banker See Me Run at Turffontein on Saturday.
Brendan Gaillard: Jockey Muzi Yeni continues to ride winner after winner and if he can keep the filly Sail De Lago out of the kickback she should go close to winning Race 5, a FM 70 Handicap at Flamingo Park on Monday.
Jack Milner: The problem facing punters in Race 6 at Greyville on Sunday, a Graduation Plate over 1200m on the Polytrack, is that the highest rated horses are all coming back from layoffs.
