South Africa (Vaal Classic) preview

RACE 1 (1,000M)

(14) SEVEN LIVES eased in the betting on debut but ran on smartly. He will know more about it.

(1) SEVEN SOVEREIGNS has a chance if doesn't give away too much start.

(7) FLEXIBLE FUGITIVE tries the minimum trip now.

RACE 2 (2,000M)

In-form (1) ELEVATED won't go down without a fight.

(4) SAMAR is hopelessly out in the weights but could take home a minor cheque.

RACE 3 (1,000M)

(9) JAZAALAH was backed on debut but found the pace too hot early. She will come on and rates the one to beat. She finished over two lengths ahead of (16) WESTERN SHAMROCK and should confirm.

(2) JAUNITA has been running close up and could take home another cheque.

(3) AQUATIQUE could just need the run.

RACE 4 (1,700M)

(8) MUTAWAARY could be coming right now and could win a race of this nature.

(12) CORRIDO was backed on debut but never got into it. Watch for a better showing.

RACE 6 (1,000M)

(6) MARMOOK races as a gelding now after a rest and if produces true ability could easily win.

(8) CALS CRUSH needed her last run and will come on heaps.

(4) UNCHAINED MELODY has been in and out but it is the "in" turn on sequence.

RACE 7 (2,400M)

(16) SHEET WEAVER should see out the trip and with a light weight could get home.

(6) HYAKU needed his last run and his only try over this distance was excellent.

(13) BONDIBLU will have her chances increased if there is a fast pace up front.

RACE 8 (1,500M)

Stable companions (6) FLOWING GOWN and (7) MONARCH AIR renew rivalry. They will be catching late and luck in running will play an important part.

(3) IRIDIUM SILVER and (4) SILVER DUCHESS will be thereabouts going for home and could keep going.

(2) MARTHA'S VINEYARD will be given every chance and Anthony could time it right.
