Trainer Johan Janse van Vuuren sends out Bingwa in Race 4.

He won a good race in his last start over this distance on the Standside course.

Despite hanging in the final 300m, he kept going well to hold all challengers at bay.

He meets the right field this afternoon and can follow up.

Sahara Dawn from the Sean Tarry stable may be the horse to close off the meeting.

She stayed on when fifth over 1200m on the Vaal Classic course last time.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since.
