UP THE VAAL
Jack Milner: There look to be two standout bets on Tuesday’s Vaal card and as both line up in the Pick 6 races, it gives bettors an opportunity to catch a nice slice of that exotic bet.
Brendan Gaillard: Trainer Cliffie Miller is having a very good year and his recent recruit Elegant General looks very likely to go through the divisions based on what we saw of his local debut.
Jack Milner: The annual New Turf Carriers Rider Cup will take place at Greyville on Sunday and will be run on the Polytrack.
RUN FOX RUN
Jack Milner: Cape Town racing will be having its seasonal “final fling” on Saturday at Kenilworth with the running of two Grade 3 races for fillies and mares.
Brendan Gaillard: Trainer Alan Greeff has a decent hand in the Listed East Cape Paddock Stakes over 1600m at Fairview on Frtiday and the pick of his six carded runners could be Love Supreme.
Jack Milner: Jockey Warren Kennedy and trainer Paul Peter will be hoping history can repeat itself when they team up with four horses at the Vaal on Thursday when racing is on the Classic track.
Ken Nicol: Born To Perform seems likely to live up to his name on Wednesday in Race 4 when racing is on the Greyville Polytrack.
Ken Nicol: Joseph Jagger caught the eye with a strong finish over 1200m at Kenilworth last time and should get favourite backers off to a winning start in Race 1 at Durbanville on Tuesday.
Trevor Reid: Jockey Muzi Yeni has had a fair crack at winning this season’s South Africa’s Jockey Championship and although he has a tough task to catch Lyle Hewitson, he has some nice rides at Flamingo Park on Monday and could ride a few winners.
