The classy Dynasty filly Desert Miracle returns from a layoff to run in tomorrow’s Grade 2 Topbet Jo’burg Spring Fillies And Mares Challenge over 1450m on Turffontein Inside. 

Mike de Kock has lamented the lack of grass gallops at Randjesfontein at present.

Desert Miracle “bled” last time (in the Grade 1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Class on March 5) and has “had no gallop at all”.

She is being tried in a tongue tie.

De Kock said, “She has done a lot of mileage at home on the sand, but I would say she goes in underdone and this will be a stepping stone for other races to come and possibly to a Cape Town campaign.”
