Good morning all and glad to report back from Pretoria after a wonderful time with the Grandkids in KZN.
We arrived back last night but leave again
for Kyalami tomorrow.
This might be a bit of a rush post as the power went off at 6.00 this morning but was only scheduled for 10.00? Another cable theft or broken cable so we are off for at least 6.5 hrs today.
I really do hate what the ANC have done to SA, its criminal 😒 It's not hate speech but fact.
However on the bright side we do have a great racing this weekend.
OK apart from our Poly feast today.
We have the Daily News 2000 and hopefully the start of my 63/1 treble but slightly concerned that Without Question has drifted as the owner also has the fav with Striker on but Richard Fourie is riding the crest of a wave🤞
The Curragh in Ireland has the 2000gns on Saturday and it will certainly have a Royal theme with ROYAL SCOTSMAN, Hi Royal, Paddington and Proud and Regal fighting out the finish.
The SCOTSMAN was well fancied for English equivalent and has been subsidized for €50000 and has to be the selection with the unlucky TAHIYRA the best in the 1000gns on Sunday after its defeat at Newmarket.
We also have the Gold Cup on Sunday and hopefully it will be on the box?
The BETFRED Derby and Oaks next weekend and SAVETHELASTDANCE still firm favourite and will hopefully win the 1000gns.
Derby as mentioned Obrien and Moore expect a massive improvement from AUGUSTA RODIN.
HOLLYWOOD Greyville also have a smashing days racing on Saturday where Richard Fourie is the man to follow.
My good Greek friend had a winner in the first race at the Vaal and I love the way the Greeks use the expression "they don't want to know" when referring to a "good thing".
Good Punting 👍 and may the POWER be with you 😎
TAHIYRA 1000 gns run look at 3rd horse distance.
