Puller’s Captain Can Take Charge Today

First is off at 12h30

A rare midweek double header as a result of Saturday’s weather impacted racemeeting being rescheduled to this afternoon gives local players plenty to play for today.

While Turffontein is off at 15h20, the first local fixture of the day is at Hollywoodbets Scottsville and eight races are carded.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge – if you finish in the top 20 on the leader board, you can win your share of R10 000.

The first is due off at 12h30.

He got up where it matters most when winning the Non-Black Type Marula Sprint last time. The son of Captain Al received a three-pound penalty for that victory. He should have no issues with the step up to 1500m. He has found his best form and from his good draw of three, should notch up his sixth career victory.

Victory Belle from the Glen Kotzen stable represents decent each way value in the lucky last. She followed up her maiden victory with a fair fifth-place finish over 1000m on the polytrack.

She lost a length at the start, but the way she stayed on at the finish was encouraging. The daughter of Rafeef takes a drop-in class and will strip much fitter. If jumping on terms, she may find herself in the winner’s enclosure.

Please note that Kabelo Matsunyane and Malesela Katjedi are not riding today in KZN.
