VELD FLOWER caught the eye with a strong finish over 1450m on the Turffontein Inside course last time. The manner in which she finished off her race that day suggests she will enjoy the rise to the mile. She should be cherry-ripe this afternoon and with Muzi Yeni retaining the ride, she should be the one to beat. LET THERE BE LIGHT has finished runner-up in her last two starts. She set the pace last time, but was caught in the shadow of the post. Luke Ferraris retains the ride and the pair may be hard to peg back in the run down to the line. BEDOUIN BRIDE ran a decent race on debut over seven furlongs at Turffontein. She lost a length at the start, but stayed on well in the closing stages. The daughter of The Sheik will enjoy the rise to the mile and with the natural improvement that is expected. she should run into the money. PEARL DANCER showed some improvement in her last start in a workriders race over six furlongs. It must be noted that the form of that effort has been franked. Gavin Lerena takes the ride and she may have more to come.
