Hi Andrew ,
Yes,exotics are never easy to catch but I did think yesterday’s PA paid a respectful R 97. If you look at the results, five of the seven favourites came through barring race 5 and 9 but I think a lot of punters stayed in with Corvette Captain in race 5 and race 9 Nussply and Light live Without . In my opinion it was a fair payout.
That’s racing I suppose, it’s not an exact science nor for the faint hearted . We as punters can only tip what we see on black and white. There are so many aspects that can go wrong in a race and let’s not forget that we are dealing with animals at the end of the day, sometimes they do have a off day.
I must be honest I do have a small wager on what I tip and do get frustrated at times .I have got a punter’s temperament and do feel the same pain when the results don’t run according to

Justin snaith is s good trainer.. He has a good string n good owners.... But he knows jhb is not as easy as his home turf and the climate change in jhb is not easy to adapt
Let's wait and see the result of the July. Mike DE kock hyped up Hawaam temperamental or nor he would have never beaten Do it again in that July. It's always jhb vs

Spoken like a true punter dom.. To many hard luck
Hi why every expected good run
I don't recall Justin saying anything about sending Captain's Ransom to Jhb.
All I've read is that he's said he does not fear War of Athena, which is fair enough - he wasn't derogatory towards her or her achievements.
War of Athena is my sentimental favourite but based on what I saw in the Majorca Stakes, I don't think there is any 3yo filly in the country who could beat Captain's Ransom over a mile.
Where I think Justin's comments were misplaced was his comment that Malmoos was lucky to win in Cape Town. I understand the context (he wasn't knocking the horse's ability, he was just saying that the top Cape 3yo's were still maturing at that point). But ultimately, Malmoos is set fair to win the SA Classic and will win the Triple Crown if his connections send him for the third leg. But if he skips the Derby, then I'd say he's the one to beat in the July, without the exertions of Triple Crown to
Graham Martin , you have said it all , Justin Snaith and his team are the " class act " of South African race horse training , just look at his record in the July Handicap , he has made this very difficult to win race his own property over the past number of years and it is only a matter of time before he surpasses the great Syd Laird in respect of July winners !
He not only talks a good game but delivers time after time on that same talk cleaning up in Cape at will and making the K.Z.N. trainers shudder when he arrives with his top string in the winter !
History has proved that it is very difficult to win on the highveld with visiting horses and the logistics of getting your horses there , especially from the Cape are a nightmare not worth contemplating
Thanks Dom,,,i find it so difficult to catch exotics like PA 5th race today yet the payout is so small,,,, smart
Derby Day Countdown
Cape Town did not have one standalone Saturday meeting on any of the big Summer feature days, which is atrocious! There was one when Turrfontein was postponed, but that hardly counts
The operators need to work together to improve the racing experience for the punters and maximise all the punting opportunties. There is clearly no revival of racing in SA, MOD and RTT may as well have let Phumelela crash and burn, and start from scratch. But MOD and RTT are just in it to maintain the elitist and exclusionary status
