SNOW REPORT CANTERS IN
Ken Nicol: As expected Candice Bass-Robinson cleaned up in the opening events at the rearranged Durbanville meeting on Sunday.
All three of her odds on Juveniles arrived under Bernard Fayd’Herbe, with a combined winning margin of over twelve lengths.
Perhaps most impressive was Snow Report in Race 3.
The What A Winter colt had been runner up to useful Captain Tatters on debut, and not surprisingly went off at cramped 2-3 odds.
But things didn’t appear to be going to plan when he found himself a reluctant leader due to a lack of pace and consequently raced rather keenly.
He still quickened impressively when asked though, and strolled off to win in quick time by over four lengths unchallenged in what looked a decent maiden form wise.
“He’s a lovely horse, and I’m glad this card was put back on. I love training What A Winters, and this one looks like he will get a bit of ground” said Bass-Robinson.
The opening two Maiden Juveniles over 1000m saw filly Roll In The Hay (5-8) and colt Three Two Charlie score in almost as emphatic a fashion.
Their trainer confirmed they will all stay in Cape Town for the winter, and that Roll In The Hay and Three Two Charlie are both likely to make their presence felt in the forthcoming Grade 3 Juvenile feature sprints on June 8.
To complete an excellent day for Cape Town’s only female trainer, she also emerged victorious in Race 5, when consistent Meraki won a competitive MR84 Handicap at 8-1.
Fayd’Herbe also went home with four, but had to work for the last of his quartet when Spectra Force sneaked home by a neck in Race 7 over 1600m.
