The New Paper - - RACING -

Thurs­day’s South Africa (Vaal) pre­view

RACE 1 (1,400M)

(1) PACHANGA has been knock­ing on the door and holds the other twose­ri­ous run­ners (2) PE­TITE AIME and (3) SING AND DANCE on re­cent form. The rest of the run­ners are all look­ing to im­prove.

RACE 2 (1,600M)

(2) DROP KICK was run­ner-up in his last two starts and could get his just re­ward. He fin­ished over three lengths in front of (3) ELEC­TRO­MAG­NETIC, who should be hav­ing his peak run here.

(4) KING OF THE SKY could get into the money.

(6) MISTY LIGHT, (7) NOW AND FOR­EVER, (9) ROCKY PATH (now gelded) and (11) WAQAAS could make up quar­tets.

RACE 3 (1,600M)

(7) PRETTY BOR­DER should have the mea­sure of both (2) DASHURI and (3) FAVOURITE MODEL on the Far­iha form­line. How­ever, on their sub­se­quent meet­ing, all three horses were ham­pered some­how and Favourite Model came out tops.

(6) OH MERCY ME and (8) SHEZAHOTTI are in with win­ning claims, hav­ing fin­ished ahead of Dashuri.

RACE 4 (1,200M)

(10) PID­GEON ROCK im­proved in his sec­ond start and should make a bold bid in a mod­er­ate line-up.

(7) SERGEANT SMI­LEY was five lengths be­hind him on de­but but will come on with the ex­pe­ri­ence.

(9) LAZARUS TREE races as a geld­ing now and could get his mind on things.

(2) AFRICAN MAGIC im­prov­ing.

RACE 5 (1,200M)

is

(3) GOA wasn’t disgraced in her post-maiden run and looks to have plenty of scope for im­prove­ment.

(11) WOT­TA­HOT­TIE is run­ning close-up and is ca­pa­ble over this course and dis­tance. (4) QU­AT­TRO is one of five from the Grant Maroun yard and could come out best.

(12) THE­WAY­WE­MAKEM could get into the mix.

(1) KING OF THE DELTA comes off a maiden win and could go on.

RACE 6 (1,200M)

(1) MOUNT KEITH is in form and, de­spite car­ry­ing 62kg on his back, could go in again. He beat (12) PIUS OIL by 4.25 lengths but is 4kg worse off and the lat­ter could get into it. (6) STARK was cough­ing last start when ahead of (7) FIDE­LIO and could con­firm.

(2) CHAPEL JIVE gets a penalty after a win last week but, with (11) HIDE­AWAY and (13) MAS­TER BOUL­DER, could get into the mix.

RACE 7 (1,200M)

(5) BAAHIR is an hon­est per­former and al­ways gives of his best. He should be in the shake-up.

(4) HUYSSTEEN drops in dis­tance and it could be the right move.

(3) GREAT SHAKA does his best when strid­ing out freely in front which should hap­pen over the ex­tra 200m.

(2) SAIL FOR JOY is hon­est and shouldn’t be far off.

(1) DONNY G and (6) PLAY THE NIGHT could up­set.

RACE 8 (1,600M)

(8) SERENDIP­ITY won her maiden over the mile and showed a re­turn to form last time out.

(7) PIC­CADILLY SQUARE should be at peak fit­ness and must be re­spected. Sta­ble mates (2) AN­GELIC AP­PEAL and (4) SAMMI MOOSA are ca­pa­ble at best.

(3) MONARCH AIR could win this.
