Headline News Vaal 2000m could be just what Woodruff's Miss Mickey needs

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
THIS has been a tough season for Geoff Woodruff. Champion trainer last season, Woodruff is languishing in an unfamiliar eighth spot on the trainers&rsquo; log for the 2007-08 season. It is almost unthinkable that the Vodacom Durban July will go ahead on Saturday without a Woodruff contender but that is exactly what is going happen.<br />

Headline News Sand specialist Red Mist has class to overcome big weight

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
THERE is no substitute for class in horseracing and often when a runner takes a drop in class he is worth following, irrespective of the mass he has to carry. Singing Sword proved this when winning with 67kg on his back at Turffontein recently and Red Mist can follow his example at the Vaal today. In his last six races, Roy Magner&rsquo;s five-year-old has been campaigning in handicaps rated from 93 to 104 but drops to a MR 84 Handicap over 1200m on the sand.&nbsp;<br />

<div>JACK MILNER</div>
