An exciting, but competitive meeting is set to take place at Durbanville under cloudy skies today with the first race off at 12h55.
The powerful Glen Kotzen stable sends out Miraculously Ours, who is currently trading at around 22/10 with Hollywoodbets, in the seventh.
Bobby Bean writes that he should have finished slightly closer to Sudden Star last time out if not for hanging from the 300m mark.
The five year-old son of Silvano has placed in both outings over this course and distance.
He is weighted to defeat his stable companion Sockeroo – on whom Aldo Domeyer replaces an indisposed Morne Winnaar – and it is also encouraging that Bernard Fayd’Herbe has kept faith in the ride. Miraculously Ours also gets the blinkers off and the cheek pieces on.
Noir’s Boy takes his place in the last race on the card and is currently trading at around 12/10 with Hollywoodbets.
The Brett Crawford-trained colt made vast improvement in his second start but still should have finished much closer that day.
The son of Capetown Noir was held up for a clear run by his rider at a crucial stage and will come on leaps with that effort under the belt.
He should relish the extra furlong on his pedigree and must be respected with stable jockey Corne Orffer in the saddle this afternoon.
