Race Summary: JAY BOMB been threatening and will make a bold bid in this field, however, year younger HEART SWINGS stayed on nicely on debut when second and could have the measure. PEGGY CARTER finished over 2 lengths in front of CAFTAN and should confirm. JUST MY LUCK can do better.



#10 Heart Stwings, #1 Jay Bomb, #2 Peggy Carter, #3 Caftan

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R95.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: ALLMYLOVING finished a length ahead of BEFORE THE DAWN last time but the latter was on debut and should improve enough to reverse the form. ALLYOUNEEDISLOVE showed good speed on debut and could get into the money. She was just in front of CELESTIAL FIRE who should be on top of her. Anton Marcus rides debutante QUICK WIT – watch!


#3 Before The Dawn, #9 Quick Wit, #1 Allmyloving, #4 Celestial Fire

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 13:45GMT+2

Race Summary: JET STORM finished 2 lengths in front of FORT CAROL last time and needed it, however, the latter is having his peak run and could turn it around. ATOMIC BLONDE wasn’t disgraced on debut and will come on. Stable companion ZABARJAD races before this – watch for improvement. YOUCANTHURRYLOVE showed inexperience on debut and will improve. BLUE FLUTE could make the frame.


#2 Fort Carol, #1 Jet Storm, #9 Atomic Blonde, #12 Youcanthurrylove

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R105.000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: HORACE is bang in form and despite a hike in weight could make in 4 in a trot and remain unbeaten over this trip. WONDEROUS CLIMBER won’t go down without a fight and won easily here. DROMEDARIS can never be ignored and could get into the action again. CONDOR GULCH appears a difficult ride but could resume winning ways. AMERICAN INDIAN races in his new surroundings.


#4 Horace, #3 Wonderous Climber, #1 Dromedaris, #2 American Indian

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R112.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: PRETTY BORDER has a hefty 62,5kg on her back but has performed well in recent feature races. PRETTY BALLERINA debuts for the hot Paul Peter yard and could get into the action. GOTTALOTTALUV has a chance if in the right frame of mind. ANGELIC APPEAL is capable but unpredictable nowadays. TEHUANO meets a lot stronger but has a low weight.


#1 Pretty Border, #3 Pretty Ballerina, #2 Gottalottaluv, #9 Tehuano

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R88.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: LIVE IN LOVE found problems last time and should go close from a good draw. ITSMYDARLIN and WESTERN DANCE finished together last time and meet again over the same distance. ITSMYDARLIN will have to come from far behind due to a wide draw. BIG MYTH was well beaten in the same race and shouldn’t turn it around. WESTERN DANCE races before this – update. ALL I GOT can improve.


#5 Live In Love, #7 Itsmydarlin, #4 Western Dance, #1 Ex’s ‘N Oh’s

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R116.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: DALAI’S PROMISE has found true form and despite giving weight to thoseĀ  who she beat last time should confirm. They include WINTER WATCH who should run another good race as well as DOUBLE ‘O’ EIGHT and ULLA who shouldn’t be far off. IMAGE AWARD won well after a rest and could go on while stable mate THREE STARS could do better. KISSABLE needs to keep galloping.


#2 Dalai’s Promise, #1 Winter Watch, #9 Double ‘O’ Eight, #7 Image Award

Vaal Classic, 13.06.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R60.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Difficult. SLEEPINSEATTLE is looking for his 9th victory and could get it in this field. IN THE GAME ran below form in his last 2 but finished ahead of SLEEPINSEATTLE before that. PRINCE JORDAN hasn’t been far off in his last two. He runs before this – watch the form. KAPAMA looks to be coming right – respect. TUDOR MANOR has ability but appears off form. ROYAL CITY can earn.
