Look Out For Strydom!

Bipot starts in the first race @ 12h55

Racing takes place on the Vaal Classic course this afternoon with an eight-race programme.

The first is due off at 12h55 with the lucky last set for 17h00.

Trainer Brett Crawford sends out Raven Black in Race 7 and he is the best bet on the programme.

He is a winner of his last three starts, the latest of which was over this course and distance.

He quickened up well that day and was geared down in the closing stages.

The son of Master Of My Fate meets a competitive field but he has plenty of ability and should take a power of beating.

Competition expected from Piere Strydom today (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

Biofarmer from the Heather Adamson yard represents decent each way value in Race 6. He is better than his last start in the Gr3 Betway Graham Beck Stakes as he was reported to have over reached.

His form prior to that outing was encouraging. He tries the compression mask for the first time which should assist.

Jockey Piere Strydom is booked to ride and if seeing out the mile, he should be competitive.
