Aga Heat from the Gavin van Zyl stable takes her place in Race 3. She was super-impressive when winning her last start over 1200m at the Vaal.

The manner in which she quickened away from the field that day was eye-catching. The daughter of What A Winter has work to do at the weights, but she may be ahead of the handicapper and can follow up.

Trainer Ashley Fortune sends out Lil Miss Moneybags in the lucky last and she may be the horse to close off the meeting. She was not disgraced when finishing fifth in her first run out of the maidens. She should have finished closer to the winner that day as she hung outwards in the closing stages.

The daughter of What A Winter has plenty of scope and if Ryan Munger is able to keep her on a straight line, she can return to winning ways.
