Alec Laird looks to have a fine prospect in two-year-old colt William Iron Arm (William Longsword), who made it two wins in three starts when winning a MR 68 Handicap over 1700m by 2,25 lengths in impressive fashion off a merit rating of 88.
Craig Zackey rode a double for Alec Laird at the Vaal on Tuesday and Gavin Lerena and Muzi Yeni also rode doubles.
