Captain Morne from the Kelly Mitchley stable should give punters a good start to the day. He showed very good improvement in his stable debut over 1000m on the turf, three weeks ago.

He showed good speed and stayed on to finish third. It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. The cheekpieces and tongue-tie have assisted the son of Captain Of All and if suited to the polytrack, he can shed his maiden tag.

Trainer Juan Nel saddles Panzanella in Race 3. She ran a decent race in her local debut over 1300m on this course. She had to overcome the widest draw of fourteen, was slow into stride but the manner in which she stayed on at the finish was encouraging.

The daughter of Dynasty will love the rise to the mile and she should strip a much fitter horse. From pole position, she can return to winning ways.
