Fox Can Do It Again Today

Vaal first is off at 12h00

Racing is back on the Vaal Classic course this afternoon and eight races are carded.

The first is due off at 12h00 and the lucky last is scheduled for 15h55.

Fennec Fox from the Paul Peter stable takes her place in Race 2.

She showed good speed, found another kick and won well on debut over 800m at Turffontein.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. The daughter of Querari would have gained from the debut experience. She takes on her own sex and should be hard to peg back.

Tony Nassif saddles Cherokee Chief in Race 7 and he represents decent each way value.

He ran a fair race when taking on slightly stronger in his last start over 1800m.

The son of Silvano will enjoy the drop back to 1600m. It is encouraging that Kabelo Matsunyane steps into the saddle and in this type of field, he may be the one to cause the upset.

Jockey Diego de Gouveia is medically indisposed and will not ride today.
