Mike de Kock’s R2,4 million Dynasty first-timer Afraad steps out in the Pick 6 opener at a standalone Turffontein inside track meeting today.
According to the multiple champion trainer the 2yo needs further but has an each way chance.
While the Pick 6 first-timer rule, where the first raced horse home also counts for the exotic, provides a safety blanket of sorts, punters may want to include him for insurance against a bomb sneaking into second.
The meeting starts at 12h25 with the Bipot going off at 12h55.
The false rail is positioned at 2m on the back straight to 5m on the bend – with a 5m spur at the 500m mark.
