SEAN TARRY

Jack Milner: Champion trainer Sean Tarry is getting his runners all warmed up for the summer season and Victoria Paige will begin her preparation for bigger things in Race 5 on the Vaal Classic course on Tuesday, a Graduation Plate for fillies and mares over 1600m.

Much was expected from this daughter of Captain Al after she won her first two starts impressively, and Tarry had no hesitation putting her up against the best around in a number of features.

She contested two legs of the Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara, finishing third in the Gauteng Fillies Guineas and fifth in the SA Oaks, before travelling to Greyville for the Grade 1 Woolavington 2000 where she ran fourth. Her latest was an unplaced run in the Grade 2 Gold Bracelet over 2000m. 

The four-year-old has a merit rating of 110 and she comes into this race rated 10kg better handicapped than her nearest rival, year younger Elusive Woman from the Ashley Fortune yard. 

Sweet And Spicy was only a length behind Elusive Woman last time over 1400m but the Stuart Pettigrew filly returned with a mouth injury. They both drop 6kg so there is no difference in the weights and that favours Elusive Woman.

But it could depend on which of two benefits from the additional 200m.

Fortune also saddles Shezaglo who comes off a maiden win and is looking for minor money.

Johan Janse van Vuuren saddles Rise As One in Race 7, and this could be one on which to keep an eye. After being backed when scoring on debut he was rested and re-appeared in a feature at Greyville where he appeared to be given a come-on run behind Erik The Red.

He takes on a lot weaker now and Gavin Lerena rides.
