Sky Glitter Could Be Showstopper

Vaal - Early start at 11h50

Racing is scheduled at the Vaal today and eight races are carded for this afternoon.

The first is due off at 11h50 and the lucky last is set for 15h55.

Paul Peter saddles Sky Glitter in Race 3 and she is the possible Pick 6 banker.

She is having her first run for the stable. She was a tad disappointing in her last start over a mile and drops back in distance.

The 10-week break would have done her the world of good and if putting her best foot forward, she should take the power of beating in this line-up.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Corne Spies saddles Captain’s Run in Race 8.

She is much better than her last start over 1160m at Turffontein.

The daughter of Captain Of All won her only attempt on this course.

She takes a big drop in class and makes her handicap debut. On best form shown, she should be the one to cause the upset.
