Jack Milner: Handicaps for fillies and mares have a notorious reputation of producing upsets so it is usually a good move to look for some value in a race of that nature.
Since trying the sand at Flamingo Park the Oracy gelding Two Guns is a perfect three from three and he can remain unbeaten by taking Race 8, a MR 66 Handicap over 1400m on Monday.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: The jockey-trainer combination of Gavin Lerena and Geoff Woodruff are most likely going to boost their already impressive 25.53% win-strike rate when Theravada lines up in Sunday’s Race 5, a Maiden Plate over 1600m on the Turffontein Inside track.
HAWWAAM WINS SA CLASSIC
Jack Milner: When one looks at past winners of the R2-million Daily News 2000 and the R1-million Woolavington 2000, many of them represent some of the best horses produced in this country.
Viv Greybe: Four-year-old Via Seattle, out of the hot stable of Yvette Bremner, looks on target to claim her sixth career win at Fairview on Friday when teamed up with champion Lyle Hewitson in Race 6, the Milkwood Stakes (Listed) for fillies and mares over 1000m.
Ken Nicol: Trainer Ashley Fortune has done very well with horses relocated from Cape Town, and Aziri Sun seems set to continue the trend in Race 4 at the Vaal on Thursday.
Viv Greybe: Punters are faced with a highly competitive card at the Greyville Polytrack on Wednesday but top-flight jockey Anton Marcus could come to their rescue aboard some bright prospects, more so, in the latter part of the meeting.
Viv Greybe: Tuesday’s meeting at Durbanville could see top-flight jockey Greg Cheyne come to light when partnering a few bright prospects on a tricky nine-event card.
Mike Moon: An exciting racing week kicks off with a rare Vaal Monday meeting. If that’s a trifle disorientating, a tough card doesn’t improve matters. But regular punters are nothing if not hardy and will seize the chance to make money to finance compelling betting opportunities still to come.
