Jack Milner: The R2-million Daily News 2000 brings together the best three-year-old form from Cape Town, Joburg and KwaZulu-Natal for the first time. With the exception of SA Derby winner Legal Eagle, the winners of all the colts’ Classic Grade 1 races over further than 1600m from all around the country will contest this year’s Grade 1 race over 2000m at Greyville on Saturday.
Jack Milner: There is little doubt the R1-million Woolavington 2000 at Greyville on Saturday is all about Majmu.
Jack Milner: One can always rely on a sprint at the Vaal to test one’s ability to find a winner and Race 8 on the turf track on Thursday is no exception. This is a MR 93 Handicap over 1000m and there are quite a few horses with decent form. What makes this event particularly interesting is that you have some horses with proven form such as Greasepaint and Fire Horse and then you also have some up-and-coming youngsters who could give the better performed runners a torrid time.
Trevor Reid: Punters normally get the better of the exchanges on the Polytrack at Greyville but they have their work cut out to find bankers at Wednesday’s meeting.
Jack Milner: The snags that caused last Thursday’s Vaal sand meeting to be called off after Race 2 appear to be sorted out and it is all systems go for Tuesday meeting at the same venue.
