Headline News Fair Brutus to continue his dominance over Fanyana

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
TO say Fanyana&rsquo;s last run was disappointing would be an understatement. In fairness jockey Piere Strydom did point out that Bradley Maroun&rsquo;s runner had a bit to find on Fair Brutus, based on their run behind Escobar. Nonetheless with some 70% of Place Accumulator tickets riding on Fanyana, it was incomprehensible that he would traipse in three lengths behind winner Strike Paradise in sixth place.<br />

Headline News Vaal 2000m could be just what Woodruff's Miss Mickey needs

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
THIS has been a tough season for Geoff Woodruff. Champion trainer last season, Woodruff is languishing in an unfamiliar eighth spot on the trainers&rsquo; log for the 2007-08 season. It is almost unthinkable that the Vodacom Durban July will go ahead on Saturday without a Woodruff contender but that is exactly what is going happen.<br />
