Lerena Poised For A Good Day

Jackpot 1 starts in the fourth race at 14h35

Racing takes place on the Classic course at the Vaal this afternoon.

Jockey S’manga Khumalo is riding at the top of his game and with five rides at today’s meeting, he may be the man to follow.

The first race is due off at 12h45.

Sean Tarry saddles Miss Magician in the first leg of the Place Accumulator and she looks to be the banker.

She raced from just off the pace last time, but found one too good in the form of Green Taffety.

The daughter of Willow Magic takes on the males today, but she carries a handy galloping mass of 54.5kgs and should be up to the task at hand.

Please note that Miss Magician has been scratched, she is under medication and will not be racing today.

Alex The Great takes his place in the lucky last. He was bumped at the start last time, but finished his race off well.

He has won once, finished second twice and third once from ten starts over this course and distance.

The 6yo gelding takes a drop in class this afternoon and Gavin Lerena may be able to coax that little bit extra out of him where it matters most.

Impi Lukhele will not be riding today as he is medical indisposed.

The false rail is 5m on the back straight to 10m on the bend with a 4.5m spur at the 800m mark.

  • The Pick 6 starts in the third at 13h55
  • Jackpot 1 starts in the fourth race at 14h35
