Here are the trainers’ comments ahead of Tuesday’s racing at the Vaal.
No 3 Born In The USA – Should need further.
No 14 Rockpaperscissors – Quartet chance.
15 Torben Spirit – Looking for further, will need the run.
No 5 Semper Fi – Holding form, place chance again.
No 16 Twice The Surge – He takes on a competitive maiden field but is fit and well and should have a strong Eachway chance.
No 13 Kruispad – Hoping for more improvement. Place chance.
No 16 Theatre Of Dreams – Eachway chance.
Mike/Matthew de Kock
No 6 Peaceontherocks – Fit and well, good Eachway chance.
No 8 Paschals Samore – Hoping to run a place.
No 15 Maculate – She’s looking for much further but will be running on and could run into the placings.
No 11 Elusive Breeze – Needs big improvement to feature.
No 14 Ella Bean – She ran a much better race in her most recent run and I’m hoping for more improvement from her.
No 1 Winning Queen – Will need the run.
No 14 Euphoriant – Will need the experience.
No 4 Get Set – Could make the back end of the Quartet.
No 8 Arabella Queen – Needs to show more.
No 16 Olympic Destiny – Will do better over this 1400 meters trip.
Mike/Matthew De Kock
No 4 Your Pace Or Mine – Needed last run, hoping for better.
No 5 Whipping Boy – Won his maiden easily when fitted with the blinkers and I’m hoping for another good run.
No 11 Eurostorm – Will need the run.
No 9 Sullenberger – Expecting another honest run.
No 4 Scoop – We have fitted him with pacifiers. It is a competitive field, but he can place.
No 7 Shabba Ranks – This track should suit him, so he must be considered for the exotics.
No 4 Corrido – Has his first run for the stable. He’s drawn wide and will need the run.
No 13 Our Man In Havana – He’s extremely well. He is not fully wound up but should still have a strong Eachway shout.
No 2 Too Phat Too Fly – She had a good first run for the stable over 1000 meters which is too short for her and she will be much better suited to the 1400 meters trip.
No 3 All Of Me – Has a good place chance.
No 9 Gallic Princess – Narrowly beaten last time, hope to go one better.
No 1 Anagram – Will need the run.
No 5 Indian Song – She’s been disappointing up to now and I’m just hoping to see some improvement.
Mike/Matthew De Kock
No 9 Flaming Duchess – Having her first run out of maiden company, hoping for a decent run.
No 10 Footstepsintherain – Having her first run out the maidens, hoping to sneak into Quartets.
No 4 Tahitian Orana – If the run has not come too soon, she should run another honest race.
