Jack Milner: Champion jockey Gavin Lerena and his predecessor and runner-up last season S’manga Khumalo return to race riding at the Vaal on Tuesday and they should not be long making their respective marks on the new racing year.
Trevor Reid: After looking an unlucky not to win on debut Easy To Please looked hard to beat second time out and he duly did so without much fuss and looks likely to follow up that maiden success by capturing Race 9, a MR 66 Handicap over 1000m at Flamingo Park on Monday.
