Punters studying Friday night’s meeting on the Greyville Polytrack will be searching wildly to find a banker in the exotics as there are few easy races on this card.
The best possibility lies with Dean Kannemeyer-trained Do Or Dare in Race 4, a Maiden Plate over 1600.
Many pundits feel he was an unlucky loser in his last start at Scottsville.
This son of Dynasty cast a shoe, was cramped and hung badly, but despite all of this, only went down 0.30 lengths to Straight Up.
A run earlier Do Or Dare contested a race on the Polytrack and ran on nicely to finish a 0.60-length third behind Keiko. A winner has come out of that form line and King Julian, who dead-heated for second with Do Or Dare, also ran in the race won by Straight Up and finished third, beaten 2.10 lengths by Kannemeyer’s charge.
Keagan de Melo is in good form and he takes the ride, replacing Stuart Randolph who rode him last time.
The main danger looks to be Vinodh’s Boy who tries this trip for the first time and as a three-year-old, should improve. S’manga Khumalo rides.
