Viv Greybe: Following jockey Muzi Yeni in the Pick 6 at Flamingo Park on Monday looks the way to go today when aboard some bright prospects.
He will be tough to beat in Leg 1 (Race 4) when teamed up with Tienie Prinsloo-trained Space Warrior who contests a Maiden Plate over 1800m.
In his two runs since joining Prinsloo’s stable, the gelding followed up a moderate third over 1400m with an encouraging 2.25-length third over the same distance.
With the confidence gained, this six-year-old gelding could crack it with Yeni up for the first time and having the advantage of a good inside draw. But include the four-year-olds Great Success and Savanna Hawk.
Corrie Lensley-trained three-time winner Sussex (Yeni) will take some beating in Leg 2 (Race 5), a MR 62 Handicap (F&M) over 1800m. This four-year-old finished in the money in her three runs this year with Yeni up, and could have the edge this time when stepping down in class. Others with claims are Bonfilia, Pep Squad and Miziara.
Consistent four-time winner For Ever (apprentice Nathan Klink) out of Bill Human’s yard could be rewarded in Leg 3 (Race 6), a 2200m MR 66 Handicap.
This gelding was a decisive winner in his penultimate outing and followed up with a second in a 1600m MR 71 Handicap. Also worthy of consideration are Whatabeauty (Yeni), along with Paddington and Janis Jetlin.
Lensley-trained three-time winner Ataturk (Yeni) should defy top-weight in Leg 4 (Race 7), a 1600m MR 58 Handicap. This four-year-old comes off a resounding win with Yeni aboard over 1600m and should follow up. His main rival is Miesque’s Speed.
Human-trained six-time winner Time To Be Great (Klink) makes most appeal in Leg 5 (Race 8), a 1400m MR 77 Handicap. This six-year-old has been holding form well and with a favourable inside draw could be in the winner’s enclosure. Others who come into the reckoning are Archilles, Secret Delight and Emperor’s Tractor.
Lensley has a strong hand in Leg 6 (Race 9) with seven-time winner Aramouse (Wes Marwing) and one-time winner Moroccan Storm (Yeni) who line up in a 1200m MR 58 Handicap. Aramouse comes off three bright runs with Marwing up – the last of which was a fast-finishing 0.75-length win in a 1300m MR 62 Handicap.
In two runs since joining Lensley’s stable, Moroccan Storm finished fifth and followed up with a gutsy maiden win over 1300m. Also to be respected is Quantity.
