Snaith Racing is going to bat at Fairview today for both their clients involved in the owners title race.
They open the batting with Mrs Suzette Viljoen, who has strong favourites Coffee Break
(1-1) and Queen Of Shadow (14-10) in the opening two events, followed by fancied second favourite Wind Sock (16-10) in the third.
Coming in at (race) Number 6 are Mrs Gaynor Rupert’s Drakenstein Stud. They own the last three favourites on the day in Somerset Maugham (2-7), Casino Queen (11-10) and Danilo Danilovitch (17-10).
Mrs Viljoen closes the day with Aye Aye (16-10) in Race 9.
May the best lady win!
All in all Snaith has 7 favourites today, and Candice Bass-Robinson the other two, so the local lads and lasses look up against it.
