Mike de Kock looks set for a big day on the Turffontein standside track today and there is some confidence around his Var first-timer Stockbridge in the first race.
The R425 000 National Yearling Sale graduate has been tagged with an ‘each way chance’ by the top stable.
The first of ten races is off at 12h25.
The Bipot starts in the second race at 13h00.
Note the projected R4 million Pick 6 starts in the fourth at 14h10.
The false rail is set at 2,5m on the back straight to 7m on the bend, with a 7m spur at the 700m mark.
There is a 60% chance of thundershowers later today.
