Craig’s Working After Hours Today

Bipot starts in the first race at 12h25

An eight-race programme is carded for Turffontein today, with the first due off at 12h25 and the lucky last scheduled for 16h30.

It’s another opportunity to select your way to the top of the free-to-play Hollywoobets Punters’ Challenge leaderboard. Your entry must be in at least five minutes before the off!

Springer from the Roy Magner yard runs in the Pick opener, the third race, which is carded for 13h35.

The daughter of Vercingetorix has finished third in her last two outings, the last just 1,9 lengths off the winner. Jockey Raymond Danielson reported that he felt that there was something amiss there, so that effort was encouraging.

She is drawn in gate fourteen today, but with the experienced Gavin Lerena aboard, she will get the necessary assistance from the saddle.

Trainer St John Gray sends out After Hours in race 8. His consistency was rewarded with a 4.25 lengths victory last time out over 1160m.

The son of Bezrin sat just off the pace that day and accelerated smartly to win comfortably.

Craig Zackey rides him today and he should have no trouble with the step up in trip to the 1400m. The 6yo could follow up.

Jockey Raymond Danielson will not be riding today.
