Tail Of The Comet – takes on heavier artillery on Sunday (Pic – Chase Liebenberg)

Tail Of The Comet from the Sean Tarry stable takes his place in Race 8 and he is the possible Pick 6 banker.

He has been super-impressive in his last two victories.

Enjoy the preview discussion:

Despite racing wide around the turn last time, he quickened up well and was geared down in the run down to the line. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked.

The son of Gimmethegreenlight should have no issues with the step up to the mile. He has plenty of class and can notch up the hat-trick.

Trainer Candice Bass-Robinson saddles Charlie Croker in Race 4. He should have won his last start over this distance at Hollywoodbets Durbanville as he had no luck up the straight.

It must be noted that multiple horses from that form line have come out and won since. He has won twice and finished second four times from as many starts over this course and distance.

He jumps from a good draw of four and if all goes according to plan, he can return to winning ways.
