A nine-race programme is scheduled at the Vaal on the Classic track today.
Winter Smoke and Nafoorah are two up and coming youngsters that look to have a decent future ahead of them and it will be interesting to see how they fair against older rivals.
The first race is off at 11h40 and the last race is off at 16h20.
Watch Winter Smoke’s win on 11 June:
Jimmy The Rich writes that Dance Class from the St John Gray stable is the best bet on the card and looks to be the Pick 6 banker.
She is unbeaten in her last six starts over various distances.
The daughter of Modus Vivendi seems to be getting better each time she takes to the course and should notch her seventh career victory today. She is nominated for the Gr1 Summer Cup.
Bridge Of Spies from the Clinton Binda stable showed good signs of a form return last time. He finished 0.75 lengths behind Mr Hugo that day and is 3.5kgs better off at the weights.
That should be enough for the tables to be turned.
He has finished second once and third once from three starts over this course and distance. The son of Great Britain should be cherry-ripe today and can get back to winning ways.
The false rail is set at zero back straight to 3,5m on the bend with a 4,5m spur at the 800m mark.
Jabu Jacobs is not riding today.
