Tarry Fox To Make Good Today

The first race at Turffontein is off at 12h05

Racing takes place on the Turffontein Inside course and nine races are carded.

The first is due off at 12h05 with the lucky last set for 16h45.

Trainer Sean Tarry saddles Rock The Fox in Race 4. She ran on powerfully when touched off in the Grade 1 Thekwini Stakes last time.

Remember this close call? Jason Gates gets the best out of Canadian Summer, as Rock The Fox (Calvin Habib) storms up late in the Gr1 Thekwini Stakes (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

She returns from a well-deserved 10-week break. The daughter of Canford Cliffs is the best weighted runner in this contest with 55kgs on her back. She has bigger plans for the season ahead, but has the class to win.

Skyjet from the Alec Laird stable takes his place in Race 1 and he should give punters a good start to the day. He has shown improvement in each of his outings to date.

He jumped awkwardly leaving the starting stalls last time and finished his race off strongly. The son of Ideal World will love the rise to 2000m and if getting away to a clean start, he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure.

Not Riding : Muzi Yeni – Rule 25.12 Applies (48 hours) / Luyolo Mxothwa (Stipes Permission).
