Tony, Calvin And Gorgeous Klein To Start The Day

Bipot starts in the first race at 12h35

Eight races are carded at the Vaal Racecourse this afternoon, in what is an unusual slot for a Wednesday.

The first is due off at 12h35 with the lucky last set for 16h45.

Gorgeous Klein from the Tony Peter stable should give punters a good start to the day.

He ran a good race when second in his first run for the Tony Peter stable. He found one too good in the form of One More that day.

The son of One World would have come on from the run and should strip much fitter.

Calvin Habib retains the ride and the combination should find themselves in the winner’s enclosure.

Trainer Paul Matchett saddles On Cue in Race 6. She ran a good race when third over this distance on the Turffontein Inside course last time.

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

The daughter of Oratorio is having her peak run today and she is the stable elect with Philasande Mxoli in the saddle.

She can notch up her sixth-career victory.
