Headline News Review: Azzie walks on air after G1 win

<p>NICCI GARNER<br />
TRAINER Mike Azzie was spot on the mark when he said last week that Stratos was &quot;pretty close to her personal best&quot; following a 91-day layoff and the Jet Master mare delivered the goods in the Grade 1 Empress Club Stakes over 1600m at Turffontein on Saturday.<br />

<p><span class="copy" id="Label1">JACK MILNER&nbsp;<br />
IT could be considered misleading to base one’s selection based on just one race but when that event also happens to be over the course and distance, it is usually an appropriate guide.<br />
<br />
When Mentor beat Jaroslaw over 1400m up the Vaal straight last month, he had a number of runners behind who will be rivals once again in Race 5, a MR 99 Handicap over 1400m on the turf track.<br />

Headline News Preview: Olympic Gold for Kotzen, Danielson

<p><span class="copy" id="Label1">JACK MILNER&nbsp;<br />
SINCE teaming up trainer Glen Kotzen and jockey Raymond Danielson have become a formidable combination and they look set to strike yet again at Greyville today with Olympic Gold.<br />
<br />
The five-year-old gelding runs in Race 7, an Open Handicap over 1600m. He has been a revelation since joining the Kotzen yard in February last year. He has run seven times for three wins, four seconds and a third. He particularly ran well for Jeff Lloyd but based on his current form, Danielson should be equal to the task.<br />

NICCI GARNER <br />
IT has been more than a year since Aliquot won, but the Jallad gelding has placed in six of his nine outings since that success and he could well get back on the winning trail in the Stayers MR 80 Handicap over 2000m, topliner at Durbanville this afternoon.<br />
