After being humbled by Cape challenger Platinum Class in the Listed Lady’s Bracelet earlier this month, local star Madame Speaker can get back to winning ways at Fairview today.
The daughter of Pathfork looks one of the better bets on the programme when she takes on six opponents in the non black-type R110 000 Aloe Handicap over the all-weather 1300m.
A versatile sort who has won five races and earned at all eleven of her starts, she probably has mots to fear from joint topweight who was 0,75 lengths behind her on the mile turf last time but comes in a kilo better off today.
She will be ridden by Greeff’s number 1 jockey Greg Cheyne and jumps from pole position.
There are nine races on the programme with the first off at 12h10. The Bipot starts in the second at 12h40.
The false rail is 3m out at the 421m mark
