Jimmy The Rich writes that Mike de Kock saddles Al Sakeet in Race 8 and he is the best bet on the card.

He caught the eye when running on strongly to finish second in the Grade 1 Mercury Sprint last time. He returns from a 14-week break today, which may have done him the world of good.

The son of Var has plenty of class about him and should notch up his fifth career victory.

True To Life from the Johan Janse van Vuuren stable takes her place in the Listed Gardenia Stakes.

She is much better than her last start in the Grade 1 Mercury Sprint. She has won four times, finished second three times and third twice from nine starts on this course.

The daughter of Duke Of Marmalade races well fresh and on best form shown, she should be too good for this field.
