Since trying the sand at Flamingo Park the Oracy gelding Two Guns is a perfect three from three and he can remain unbeaten by taking Race 8, a MR 66 Handicap over 1400m on Monday.
The winning began over the course and distance in January when Two Guns was still trained by Stephen Lerena and the four year-old proved 3.25 lengths too good for Pavarotti Passion.
A return trip to the Vaal proved unsuccessful so it was decided to send him to current trainer Sarel Von Willingh Smit who has a good record in Kimberley.
Two Guns stepped up to 1800m and won well enough when beating Peter The Wailer. He saved his most impressive win for his latest start when running out an 11-length winner.
The handicapper bumped him up nine points and then 10 points for his latest win so he will need a career-best performance to win but in the form, he is in it is possible. Apprentice Dylan Lerena was aboard Two Guns for both of his last two wins so clearly knows how to get the best out of him.
Tobie Spies has a good record at this course and his runner Baby Lets Mambo could be the danger. This juvenile is improving and was not disgraced when fourth last time out. He has won at this track in April.
Another possible bet could be Hector Heathcote in Race 4, a MR 72 Handicap over 1200m. This Pathfork gelding is getting the hang of racing on the sand and from a good draw, Muzi Yeni can bring him home strongly. He is a nice Eachway bet.
