Civil Princess Looks Decent

First race off @ 12h05

Nine races are carded on the Vaal Classic course this afternoon.

The first is due off at 12h05 with the lucky last set for 16h40.

Please note, jockey Marco Van Rensburg will not be riding.

Civil Princess from the Johan Janse van Vuuren stable may be the horse to close off the meeting.

Have you read the Sprint?

She was super-impressive when winning on debut over this distance at Turffontein.

She showed good speed, found another kick and was geared down in the closing stages.

It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The daughter of Daniel Boone looks to be above average and she can remain unbeaten.

Trainer Fanie Bronkhorst sends out Pendragon in Race 8.

He finished 0.95 lengths behind Stormy Seas last time.

He is 1.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

The son of Willow Magic has dropped to a competitive rating and with in-form Denis Schwarz in the saddle, he is capable of returning to winning ways.
