Track Attack looks lethal

Track Attack looks lethal


Ken Nicol: Impeccably bred Track Attack was a clear second on debut a fortnight ago despite racing very green and should exit the maiden ranks when returning to Durbanville on Wednesday.

This half-brother to Yorker never looked like getting to runaway winner Hubble then, but made late headway as evening gloom fell over the country course.

He should be far better for the experience and now going 1600m will take a lot of beating in Race 2. Banker.

Another standout is in Race 1. The Candice Bass-Robinson-trained Duchess Of State has finished a close up second in both starts and is drawn in pole position coming to Durbanville for the first time.

She meets a limited looking bunch on this occasion and this 1400m trip would seem to be more to her liking.

Bass-Robinson has been a bit quiet lately, but could well bounce back to best, as her runner Nan also appeals mightily in Race 4.

This Vercingetorix filly made instant improvement when going beyond sprints and stayed on solidly trying 1600m a few weeks ago, admittedly in a weak looking field.

But this one is no better and she should love going 2000m for the first time. Young Sandile Mbele is worth his 1.5kg claim and should be celebrating another winner.

One of the better bets on the card is Adam Marcus-trained Hildegarde in Race 7. 

This What A Winter filly has done little wrong since trying this 1000m, and ran well above her rating when second to Celestial Storm in a Conditions Plate last time. 

From the inside draw this progressive type will take a lot of beating.
