NATIONAL PARK WINS GRAHAM BECK
This is probably the first time a Port Elizabeth-trained horse has been priced up at 22-10 to win a Grade 2 race at Turffontein.
That is just what has happened to National Park, trained by Yvette Bremner and a facile winner of the Graham Beck Stakes over 1400m at Turffontein on Charity Mile day, who is quoted at 22-10 in the ante-post market to win the Grade 2 Dingaans over 1600m at Turffontein on Saturday.
However, despite landing a wide draw, Mike de Kock-trained Soqrat tops the boards at 14-10.
National Park is also not too well-drawn at No 10 but is sure to come in quite a bit after the final field is announced on Monday.
Also run on Saturday is the Grade 3 Fillies Mile and that looks a lot more open, Sean Tarry-trained Return Flight has been chalked up as the 3-1 favourite while Ronnie’s Candy, trained by St John Gray, is at 4-1.
Only then do we find the two De Kock runners – Ghaallaa and Nafaayes – at 6-1.
