Basadi Faith leads the way

Jack Milner: There are four Grade 3 races at Turffontein on Saturday 30 March to back up the Grade 1 SA Derby and Grade 1 HF Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes and the Grade 2 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks on the same day.

There is always interest in the two events for juveniles as they are good pointers to the SA Nursery and SA Fillies Nursery to be run a few weeks later.

So far, one of the most interesting two-year-olds around in Paul Matchett-trained Basadi Faith. She has won all three of her starts and last time easily defeated highly regarded Gin Fizz from the Mike de Kock yard, giving her 2kg.  

They are likely to meet again in this race where Basadi Faith will have to give Gin Fizz 4kg. However, Matchett’s charge won by 4.50 lengths so there is still plenty “fat’ built in.

The Caradoc Gold Cup is over 2850m and Mike de Kock has a very strong hand with Noble Secret and Condor Gulch.

Condor Gulch needed the run at the Vaal yesterday and will come on from there, especially with 52.5kg on his back.
Noble Secret will carry top weight of 58.5kg but his record over 2400m is excellent. He ran third in the SA Derby, 1.75 lengths behind Hero’s Honour, and since having been gelded, has won both his races over 2400m with ease.
