<p>MEL KAPLAN<br />
TRAINER Peter Miller will saddle no less than 30 runners at the Flamingo Park meeting this afternoon. Jockeys Andrew Fortune and Gerrit Schlechter will each ride a full card of nine for the trainer and the possibility of a clean sweep for the stable cannot be brushed aside with the likelihood of the local champion trainer saddling at least five winners a near certainty.<br />

Headline News Fortune in line for Fairview treble

<p>HAROLD STERLEY<br />
JOCKEY Greg Cheyne, a regular visitor to Port Elizabeth, will not make the trip for the fixture at Fairview today, which has left the door wide open for Andrew Fortune to make an impact. Fortune has been jet setting recently – including to Zimbabwe last weekend – and, given that he is fit and in-form, he looks the one to follow at this meeting. He has three potential winners – Bamboo Magic, Steady Chat and Copper Trader.<br />

Photo: Gavin Lerena will ride Captivating Party.<br />JACK MILNER<br /> TWO daughters of National Assembly – four-year-olds Captivating Party and Sweet Allegra – can fight out the finish of Race 4 at Scottsville on Wednesday, an Allowance Plate for fillies and mares over 1000m.<br /> <br /> Sweet Allegra will receive 0.5kg but Captivating Party should come away with the major slice of the stake money.

She has run just six times for two wins and two seconds.</p>
