Sean Tarry sends out Antigua Night in Race 5 and she is the best bet on the programme. She ran a very good race when third in the Grade 2 Prosport International Debutante presented by Gagasi FM last time.

She raced from a handy position and stayed on at the finish. The daughter of Visionaire is the best weighted runner in this contest and if not in need of this run, she should take a power of beating.

Stormy Seas from the Roy Magner yard takes his place in Race 6. He should have finished closer to the winner last time as he was held up for a run between the 300m mark and 200m mark. It must be noted that Anfields Rocket has come out and won again since.

He finished 1.25 lengths behind Spielberg, three runs ago. He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. With a bit of luck in running, he can notch up his fourth career victory.

Please note that J Greyling will not be riding today.
