Rio Querari teams up with Winning Form-sponsored Jockey Richard Fourie today (Pic – Chase Liebenberg)

Rio Querari from the Justin Snaith stable takes his place in Race 8. He stayed on when fifth in the Khaya Stables Gr2 Diadem Stakes last time.

He has won twice, finished second twice and third once from nine starts over this course and distance.

He runs well for Winning Form-sponsored Jockey Richard Fourie and he can return to winning ways.

Trainer Paul Reeves saddles Mighty Mac in Race 7. He moved up well over 1200m last time but was outrun late. He finished 0.45 lengths behind Mr Frostie in his penultimate run.

He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

He should be ideally suited to 1100m and may be the one to side with in this line-up.
