A Nuclear Force-Kakiebos Rematch Today

Craig Zackey is not riding today

Racing takes place on the Turffontein Inside course this afternoon.

Eight races are on the cards with the first due off at 12h30 and the lucky last set for 16h40.

Nuclear Force (Gavin Lerena) will meet Kakiebos (Kaidan Brewer) in a rematch today at Turffontein

Trainer Erico Verdonese sends out Nuclear Force in Race 6. He finished 0.25 lengths behind Kakiebos last time.

He is 0.5kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating the pair at the finish.

He won his only attempt over this course and distance. If not too far out of his ground turning for home, he should go one better.

Take the look at the replay of Nuclear Force and Kakiebos’s last meeting – the two will go head-to-head again today.

Fifth Of July from the David Nieuwenhuizen stable takes his place in Race 5.

He showed good signs of a form return in his last start over 1600m on the Vaal Classic course.

He should have finished closer to the winner that day as he hung in the final 600m.

He will strip a much fitter horse this afternoon and if keeping on a straight line, he should be competitive.

Please note that Craig Zackey is not riding today.
