Soma To Add A Dash Of Salt ‘n Pepper

First if off at 12h10

Nine races are carded at Turffontein Racecourse this afternoon.

There are three feature races including the Grade 2 Colorado King Stakes, Grade 3 Pretty Polly Stakes and the Grade 3 Protea Stakes. The first is due off at 12h10.

Trainer Joey Soma saddles Avoontoast in Race 3.

The daughter of Twice Over produced a promising debut effort over 1160m on this course.

She was slow into stride, but the way she finished off her race that day was encouraging. She would have gained from the experience and will love the extra distance on offer. With the natural improvement that is expected, she should take a power of beating.

Pinch Hit from the Fanie Bronkhorst stable takes his place in the lucky last and he represents decent each way value. He ran a decent race when fourth in his last start over this course and distance.

He raced from just off the pace that day and stayed on at the finish. It is encouraging that Gavin Lerena steps back into the saddle and in this line-up, he can notch up his third career victory.
