Go With Zackey Today

Vaal first is off at 12h40

Eight races are carded at the Vaal Racecourse this afternoon.

Craig Zackey has a full book of rides with a couple of decent winning chances and he may be the jockey worth following.

The first is due off at 12h40.

Open Highway from the Ashley Fortune yard takes his place in Race 1 and he should give punters a good start to the day.

He produced an eye-catching debut effort over 1000m on the Classic course. He took time to find his feet but finished his race off strongly. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The son of Var would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, he should be the horse to beat.

Weiho Marwing saddles There She Goes in Race 7 and she represents decent each way value. She stayed on when fifth over 1000m on the Turffontein Inside course last time. She finished 0.8 lengths behind Lollapalooza, four runs ago.

She is 1.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. The daughter of Time Thief drops in class and with Wesley Marwing back in the saddle, she may be the one to beat.
