Vaal trainers’ comments


What some of the trainers have to say about their runners at the Vaal on Thursday.

Race 1
Stephanus Botha
No 7 City Deep – I’m expecting him to run a nice race
Fabian Habib
No 11 Pacific Dream – Working well, has a place chance
Race 2
Lucky Houdalakis
No 6 Miss Elegance – Will need the experience Stephanus Botha
No 7 Mode – She’s a nice filly but should still need this run
Corne Spies
No 2 Zernez – The 1400m should suit her and she should have a good place chance
Race 3
Dorrie Sham
No 3 Back To Black – Very nice colt, may need the experience
Paul Peter
No 5 Blue Moon City – Decent sort, place chance
Philip Labuschagne
No 9 The Boogeyman – Will need the experience
Corne Spies
No 2 Luke Moonwalker – He will enjoy this distance and should be included in exotic bets.
No 8 Maple Street – Will still be green
No 10 The Eight Lord – Expecting a good run
Race 4
Romeo Francis
No 13 Brave Detail – He’s been showing nice work so I’m expecting an improved run Fabian Habib No 3 Capjack – He takes on a competitive field but did run an improved race last time and could place.
Grant Maroun
No 8 Fort Love – Trying further, small place chance
Robbie Sage No 2 Kool Baikal – Should run a good race
No 5 Romantic Era – Looking for improvement
Race 5
Stephanus Botha
No 4 Kings Cup – He just needed his last run and I expect him to run a big race
Ashley/Andrew Fortune
No 9 Bellagio King – Should show improvement against this slightly weaker field.
No 7 Capetown Affair – Should show improvement against this slightly weaker field.
Corne Spies
No 12 Canquari – Needs to improve
Geoff Woodruff
No 1 Theravada – He’s working well and should be thereabouts
Race 6
Ashley/Andrew Fortune
No 8 Tahitian Orana – She’s an honest filly and we have opted to put the blinkers back on. Each-way chance Fabian Habib
No 4 Now You See Me – He’s drawn out wide which is not in his favour. He tries a longer trip and if he sees it out, could be in the placings.
Grant Maroun
No 12 Tombola – Worth an each-way bet
Race 7
Stephanus Botha
No 14 Trip To Paradise – His last run was an improvement but he is a bit inconsistent.
Fabian Habib
No 12 City Dancer – He choked up in his last race so that run can be ignored. Could place.
No 9 Waqaas – He does seem to be more suited to racing around the bend but nevertheless is well and should have a strong each-way shout.
Grant Maroun
No 6 Category Four – Worth an each-way bet Corne Spies
No 13 Bouncing Tigger – Has a place chance Geoff Woodruff No 9 Top Rank – His work is good and he is usually competitive so should be included.
Race 8
Paul Peter
No 9 Way Of The World – Might need the run
Roy Magner
No 13 Sweet Trial – He’s always thereabouts and I’m hoping for another decent run.
No 15 The Makwakkers – His last run was disappointing. I’m hoping for a better run this time.
Grant Maroun
No 18 Golden Man – Has a place chance
Corne Spies
No 2 Roger The Dodger – Has come on since his maiden win and has an each-way chance
