Last season’s SA Fillies Nursery winner Basadi Faith carries top weight in today’s Turffontein feature, the Sophomore 1000.
The dual stakes winning daughter of Master Of My Fate has not run for 29 weeks since suffering an epistaxis in the Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship at Scottsville. Basadi Faith was unbeaten in four starts at that time.
Trainer Paul Matchett says she has been working well and she only looks to have Paul Peter’s very quick Fly Away to beat.
The meeting kicks off at 12h25.
The pen reading is 22.
Nathan Klink is not riding today.
The false rail is set at 2m on the back straight to 7.5m on the bend, with a 7.5m spur at the 700m mark.
