Mike’s Chosen One To Strike At Turffontein

Turffontein first due off @ 11h30

Turffontein is alongside Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon.

A ten-race programme has been carded with the first due off at 11h30 and the lucky last set for 17h00.

The A-Team – Mike de Kock and Johnny Geroudis (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

Trainer Mike de Kock sends out Khethiwe’s Destiny in Race 2. She produced a promising debut effort over this course and distance.

She showed speed and stayed on at the finish.

It must be noted that Stars And Bra’s has come out and placed in a Grade 3 since.

The daughter of Buffalo Bill Cody would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should be the one to beat.

War Queen from the Lucky Houdalakis stable represents decent each way value in Race 9. Her last start must be ignored as she was reported to have choked up.

She won a good race in her penultimate outing under Raymond Danielson.

The daughter of Act Of War takes on weaker opposition today and she may be hard to peg back.
