Jack Milner: Eden Roc is back on the Highveld after his unsuccessful tilt at the Grade 1 Cape Guineas and in all likelihood trainer Sean Tarry will be sharpening up this son of Var for the Grade 2 Gauteng Guineas over 1600m at Turffontein on Saturday 8 February.
GAVIN VAN ZYL
Jack Milner: Warren Kennedy continues to churn out winners week after a week and he can add another to his already impressive tally for the season when he rides Wave in Race 5, a Novice Plate over 1200m, at Scottsville on Wednesday.
MARCO VAN RENSBURG
Trevor Reid: Trainer Craig Mayhew does not travel often to Kimberley with his runners so if he does one must keep an eye on them and Miss Patriot in Race 2 must be considered.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: Since winning her barrier trial, Jackson Wells from the Mark Dixon outfit, has been backed to win in two consecutive outing and although she has failed to make favourite backers happy, you can’t deny the fact she simply does not know how to run a poor race.
VARDY WINS QUEEN'S PLATE
Jack Milner: Vardy won the R1.5-million L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate over 1600m at Kenilworth on Saturday.
HAWWAAM WINS PREMIER STAKES
Jack Milner: Mike de Kock realises the task ahead for his two runners in Saturday’s R1.5-million L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate over 1600m at Kenilworth.
Ken Nicol : Candice Bass-Robinson has won all three runnings of the Grade 2 Sceptre Stakes since Cartier assumed the sponsorship in 2017.
Jack Milner: Youcanthurrylove is a lightly raced three-year-old colt who has already started to build a positive reputation.
Ken Nicol: Ice Imperial has proven expensive to follow, but really should recoup some losses for her backers by winning Race 3 over 1400m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville polytrack on Wednesday.
