Habib For The Win!

Trainer Sean Tarry sends out Kambulu in Race 4 and he is the possible Pick 6 banker.

He was awkward when taking the turn over this distance at Turffontein last time, but the manner in which he stayed on at the finish was encouraging. The son of Querari is a progressive type and if not too green around the bend, he should take a power of beating in this line-up.

Rose Willow from the Brett Warren yard may be the horse to close off the meeting. She has shown signs of a form return in her last two starts.

She lost a length at the start over 1800m last time, but stayed on to finish fourth. She is likely to be switched off near the rear of the field from the widest draw of 12 and will be mowing down the frontrunners.

  • Please note that V Lerena will not be riding today.
