Good evening all and I must say looking forward to the meeting tomorrow.

My best bet on the card would have to be FOREVER MINE, the last time I bankered this one, I was able to catch the pick6 .

It’s only fair to the Clan that I talk about HUMBLE TUNE.

The background is that we nominated for the Derby Trial and drew 20 from 20 we could have ended up 12 from 12 ? Considering we drew 2 in the Handicap, we decided to go for the easier option.

I visited the big lad during the week and have to say he looked absolutely superb.
The Dawson ladies certainly know how to look after their horses and in addition the Bull Ring clubhouse can certainly look after the owners in stunning surroundings.

Ok, I understand you just want to know about the beast and not my favourite meal on the menu.

I/we have no idea why he did not show in his last run and that is a negative?
It was no secret that he was slightly preferred over the stable companion ( and consider Stone Cold, actually WON the Egoli mile) !

On Sat he has good draw, our first choice of jockey, he should stay from sire and dam side and no offense to other owners but in a less competitive field.

I think the current odds of around 10/1 ish is a very fair and reasonable price and a good ew would be my suggestion to the CLAN punters.

I find myself looking after a friends house and business over the next couple of weeks, it keeps the auld mans brain cells active .

Will try and get over to the big T or my partner in crime (Georgie the Greek) can do the honours.

Horses can make a fool of us but I am just trying to be as transparent as possible.

Good Punting.

Mr. H, no sex talk here, this is a decent site with decorum.
Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy.

"VARS VICKY?" COULD BE THE QUESTION AT TURFFONTEIN

David Thiselton

THE five feature races at Turffontein Standside today are headed by the Grade 2 Senor Santa Stakes over 1160m in which the unexposed three-year-old Vars Vicky could continue on his winning ways.

This Stuart Pettigrew-trained gelding has a lovely action and quickened effortlessly last time when winning over 1200m on the Inside course. He still has a potentially suppressed merit rating as he has not been tried in feature class before so now carries the minimum weight of 52kg under the merit rated band conditions. He is in fact 4,5kg under sufferance with the best weighted horse but looks capable of rising above his current mark. He has a nice high draw of eleven which is the favourable side by trends. Muzi Yeni aboard is a further bonus.

Topweight Chimichuri Run has landed the worst draw by trends of number one. This did not stop him winning last time but he does have a much tougher task at the weights this time and is in fact 2kg under sufferance with the best weighted. His regular pilot Gavin Lerena has deserted him to ride the best weighted True To Life. However, Chimichuri Run’s class can overcome these obstacles and he should be right there.

Mount Pleasant looked to be something special in his early career but two unplaced runs over 1600m have dimmed his star. He has chance to revive the brightness dropping back to 1200m. A high draw will favour this big-striding individual but against him is his high merit rating of 120 meaning he has to give 6kg to his contemporary Vars Vicky.

Gallic Princess has proven herself a useful sprinter and if her pace enables her to overcome a low draw she has a shout.

True To Life has a fine record over this course and distance and is not only the best weighted but has a fair draw so should be finishing as strongly as usual.

Others capable of winning if they bring their A game are Bohica, Eden Roc, Singforafa, Golden Belle and Winter Stories.

The Listed Derby Trial could be fought out by three progressive horses Pamushana’s Pride, Invincible Warrior and Earl. Pamushana’s Pride and Earl look certain to enjoy the trip and the scopey Invincible Warrior strikes as one who will stay despite there being a slight question mark on pedigree.

The Listed Ormond Ferraris Oaks Trial has attracted an uninspiring field that is not worthy of Listed status although the topweight Ideal Jet does strike as one who possesses some potential. She is the choice to beat the improving Mauby who should enjoy the step up in trip. Keeping The Peace, Traveling Wilbury and Siren Of Greece can also be considered over a suitable trip.

In the Listed Drum Star Handicap Running Brave has them all beaten on form or paper except for Green Haze. There does not look to be much pace in the race which will suit the handy to front-running Running Brave who has blossomed this season into a strongly built mare. Green Haze might need it as it his first run for the Paul Peter yard and Pack Leader is preferred for the exacta. The latter will enjoy the step back up in trip and has a shout if producing his best. Green Haze must be included as he is talented and a change in environment always has the potential to bring out the best in a horse. Youcanthurrylove and Divine Odyssey make most appeal of the rest.

The Gold Rush Sprint could see the light-weighted filly Celestial Love upsetting two classy speedsters Forever Mine and Valyrian King.
