Trainer commments for the Vaal 31 October.
No 3 My Kingdom is coming back from a long rest and his vaccinations. He has had 2 grass gallops and is fit. I am hoping for a better run.
No 8 Luke’s Legacy is working well after gelding
No 2 Notquitethereyet should suit jockey Piere Strydom and I am hoping she can get there. Include in Trifectas
Of my 4 runners No 7 Arabella Queen, No 10 I Want It That Way, No 13 Super Fluke and No 14 Tahitian Queen I have a slight preference for No 14 Tahitian Queen who should be suited to this distance.
No 12 Miss Caruso will be green, place chance
No 1 Sea Like Grass should run a better race. I am not sure about the distance but Piere Strydom has been asking to try her over this trip.
No 2 The Jocelyn tree has an each-way shout
Heinrich van der Westhuizen
No 3 Our Biscuit is working well but I would prefer her if it rained.
No 15 Aroya Pearl will enjoy the 2000m but is badly drawn.
No 3 Turf Master settled last time so we now have options on how to
ride him. He does have a chance
No 5 Seven Nation Army: I am hoping for a better run.
No 9 Imperial Ruby has run some commendable runs. I have taken the blinkers off and I am hoping for a minor place.
I have three runners in this No 2 Poppycock, No 12 Deal Me In and No
13 Royal Siege.
I cannot get Poppycock any better but he has to overcome a terrible draw.
No 1 Zeal And Zest has an each-way shout and is not out of it.
No 4 Snorting has ability. He is returning from a break and this is abit short for him. he needs 2000m and further
No 7 Hidden Agenda has won over this distance. With the 4kg claimer he has a handy galloping weight and I make him a massive runner.
No 8 Bosphorus: I am hoping for the best.
No 12 I Fly has a good galloping weight so i am expecting an improved run from him.
No 3 Capetown Affair: We have taken the advice of a jockey and trying him over this distance.
No 12 Bouncing Tigger ran with stronger last time out and so does have a place chance.
