Johan Janse van Vuuren saddles Outofthedarkness in Race 7. He ran a good race when finishing second over 1600m on this course last time.

He has won three times, finished second once and third once from six starts on this track. The son of Gimmethegreenlight gets the blinkers fitted for the first time which should keep his mind on the task at hand. From his good draw of four, he can go one better.

Linganomore from the Corne Spies yard takes her place in Race 6. She has fair recent form lines to her name. She finished third in her penultimate run over this course and distance.

The daughter of Byword takes a big drop-in class and despite carrying top weight of 60kgs, she should return to winning ways.
