Race Tip

VIVA BRAZIL (3) is a talented colt who tackled tougher grade last time, finishing 3.5 lengths behind Purple Pitcher over 1m4 1/4f in the G1 SA Derby at this track. Likely to push forward and race on the pace. Best figures should see him run well. UNITED COUNCIL (2) ran fifth at her latest appearance over 2m at this track, finishing 8 lengths from the winner. Best figures stack-up nicely. TWENTY DRACHMA'S (6) was in the money in a at this track then met stiffer opposition last time when 11th over 1m4 1/4f in the G1 SA Derby at this track, beaten 9 lengths. Can play a big role in the finish. MAMBO COME TESIO (8) has been about the mark of late. Last time out was one length from the winner in second over 1m4f at this track. Likely to push forward and race on the pace. Not to be discounted.
