Workriders Claim The Day At Vaal

First due off @ 12h45

We look forward to an exciting showcase of riding skill today as the Vaal Racecourse plays host to an eight-race programme for the workriders.

The first is due off at 12h45 with the lucky last set for 16h50.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Fanie Bronkhorst sends out Viva De Janeiro in Race 7 and he is the possible Pick 6 banker.

He was super-impressive when winning his last start over this course and distance.

He received the maximum eight-pound penalty for that victory.

Goodman Dadamasi is booked to ride and, in this field, he should follow up with another victory.

Global Reef from the Dianne Stenger stable represents decent each way value in the lucky last race.

He showed some signs of needing his comeback run over this course and distance. He would have come on from the run and should strip much fitter.

The son of Global View has plenty of scope and with the services of capable work rider Thomas Ncume, he should have good improvement to come.

Race 1 – #4 CENTREFOLD – 370 day break – was sent to stud for breeding, followed by rest before returning.
Race 6 – #3 CANTFOOLME – 151 day break – bad seedy toe which needed time off to grow out.

Race 3 – #7 Redcherry Lane
Race 8 – #8 Alakanani
Race 8 – #12 Mo Express
