First due off @ 12h05

Trainer Alec Laird saddles Pointer in Race 2 and she is the best bet on the programme.

She made the expected natural improvement when shedding her maiden tag at the second time of asking.

She raced from just off the pace, quickened up well and drew clear of the opposition. It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since.

Pointer is a progressive type and with jockey Diego De Gouveia retaining this ride, the daughter of Canford Cliffs can follow up with another victory.

Here’s a replay of Diego and Pointer’s previous victory:

Enchanting Lady from the Fanie Bronkhorst stable takes her place in Race 5.

She has consistent form lines to her credit. She ran a good race when fourth in her last start over 1000m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville polytrack.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since.

It is encouraging that Gavin Lerena steps back into the saddle and she should return to winning ways.

Please note that Richard Fourie will not ride in races 7 and 9 today.
