Jack Milner: Aurelia Cotta takes a drop in class and that could help her get back in a winning frame of mind when she runs in Race 7 at the Vaal on Tuesday over 1600m on the Classic course.
Brendan Gaillard: Black Minnaloushe mare Vanilla Orchid is blossoming under the care of trainer Stephanie Miller and could be ready to score at Eachway odds in Race 8 at Flamingo Park on Monday.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: Dennis Bosch-trained Born To Perform was honestly his own worst enemy when finishing third behind GG’s Dynasty last time.
ONE WORLD WINS SUN MET
Ever-consistent One World floored all the big names to win the R3-million Sun Met over 2000m at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Jack Milner: The boom horse taking on the form horse could turn this year’s Sun Met into an absolute thriller.
JOHAN JANSE VAN VUUREN

The lightning has subsided and racing continues at the Vaal, weather permitting.

Jack Milner – At this time of the year many trainers are preparing their runners for the upcoming Autumn Season on the Highveld and among those events is the Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara in which a R1 million bonus will go to any three-year-old filly who can win the Gauteng Fillies Guineas, SA Fillies Classic and the SA Oaks.
