Vaal April 20th Preview

 Race 1

1 - 2 - 4 - 3

Alfolk: Runner up in a feature last time out, should be very competitive this class, respect.

Mujallad: Broke his maiden at the second time of asking, was most impressive, a big chance.

Whorly - Whorly: Beaten three lengths in a feature last time out, but has work to do with two.

Tribal Force: Defeated the latter on debut, but the form was reserved in the Storm Bird, include.

Race 2

3 -  1 - 5 - 2

    Star Profile: Ran on smartly for third in a feature last time out, should be a factor if repeating here.

Fish River: Made her racecourse debut a winning one, the Canford Cliffs filly could be anything, shot.

Silver Thursday: Silvano (GER) - Secret Obsession by Captain Al (SAF) first timer from De Kock stable.

Outlander: Flopped in feature company when last seen on the track, has shout if producing her best.

Race 3

7 - 8 - 10 - 2

Martha's Vinyard: Runner up on debut, would have come on a ton since then, the one to beat.

Playing Games: Promising introduction to racing, capable of giving the top selection some cheek.

Secrets And Lies: Ran on smartly to earn on debut, could end up being very progressive, a chance.

Omo Power: Fairly well exposed, but she is a worthy inculsion in all trifectas and quartets, eachway.

Race 4

4 - 10 - 5 -  1

I am Titanium: Was not completely disgraced over 1400 last time out, be better this trip, value bet.

Front Club: Promising performance on debut, should be very competitive with a run under the belt.

Roberta's Passion: Runner up in latest, could threaten if reproducing that effort in this contest, shot.

Subtle Force: May be wanting slightly further than a mile at this stage, but she's improving, a threat.

Race 5

13 - 14 - 1 - 4

Naafer: Promising debut effort behind a top sort, faces older horses, but deserves healthy respect.

Phillydelphia: Juvenile filly against older males, however both her starts have been decent, a chance.

Jet Sailor: May be at his very best over five furlongs, with that said the gelding did improve last time.

Optical Illusion: Moderate performance in most recent race, low mileage and he can get closer here.

Race 6

1 - 7 - 4 - 8

Pool Party: The Kahal filly out of Splash Around by Captain Al is very classy, a threat on previous run.

Shivering Sea: Bounced back to her very best last time out, capable of following up here if repeating.

Inyanga: Is becoming somewhat of a rival to the latter, should be there abouts, is a lively contender.

Honolua Bay: 1200m specialist, had excuses in most recent race, much better over this trip, a shout.

Race 7

7 - 8 - 10 - 5

Golden Man: The Grant Maroun trained son of Lateral is a model of consistency, could score here.

Machismo: Ran a much improved race last time out, can feature if holding form, five draw a bonus.

Sporting Monarch: Has had excuses as of late, returns from a break and gelding, has chance if ready.

Refuge: Bounced back to form in last outing, could threaten if reproducing his absolute best ability.

Race 8

10 - 5 - 9 - 4 

Quinlan: Steps up to take on older horses, but he looks classy and could get a blow in, respect.

Don Christo: Had excuses last time out, the going didn't suit him at all, a big threat on prior form.

Dragon's Breathe: Also fell victim to bad conditions, a huge runner on penultimate start, respect.

Brave Nomad: Broke his maiden at the first time of asking, trip might be too short, but include him.

Best bet = Martha's Vinyard
