Hometown hero Piere ‘Striker’ Strydom takes four rides at Fairview this afternoon and should prove a star attraction, together with the R250 000 Jackpot 1 carryover opportunity, which could see the pool at R1 million.
Eight races are carded on the polytrack with Race 7 on the programme the second leg of the Non-Black Type Nelson Mandela Bay Racing Poly Challenge 1400 powered by Betway.
The first is due off at 12h50.
Gideon’s Daughter from the Alan Greeff stable takes her place in Race 1 and she should give punters a good start to the day. She produced a promising debut effort over this distance on the turf.
The way she stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. The daughter of Skitt Skizzle would have gained from the experience and with a bit of luck in running, she should take a power of beating.
Trainer Jacques Strydom saddles Gallic Tribe in the main event on the card.
He caught the eye when running on to finish third over 1200m on this course last time. He is likely to be settled near the rear of the field from his wide draw of ten and will be mowing down the frontrunners.
Piere Strydom does duty and he may be able to get the best out of the son of Vercingetorix.
