Humby filly targets double

Viv Greybe

Three runs back with Dillon up this daughter of What A Winter ran on stoutly from off the pace to snatch victory at Scottsville over 1200m.

Loyal Lieutenant is hard to beat in Race 6.

Shane Humby-trained Cause And Effect, a winner of three of her seven starts, should be up to the task again when stepping out with Donovan Dillon aboard at Scottsville today in Race 7, a MR 86 Handicap (F&M) over 1200m.

Three runs back with Dillon up this daughter of What A Winter ran on stoutly from off the pace to snatch victory at Scottsville over 1200m.

She can be excused for finishing a 2.25-length fifth in her next outing when carrying 61.kg at the same venue over 1400m, as she ran on too late a er a slow start.

Then partnered by Dillon again and coming off a three-month rest, the four-year-old bounced right back to form next time when flashing up late and scoring by a short-head in a MR 84 Handicap at Greyville over 1200m.

The filly will be much fitter this time, and carrying 57kg again should complete the double.

Though returning a er a four-month layoff , Garth Puller-trained Boeing City (Serino Moodley) deserves respect.

The combination will be bidding for a hat-trick after having scored over 1000m at Scottsville and Greyville.

However, both will have to be on guard against Just Vogue (Warren Kennedy) out of Gavin van Zyl’s stable.

Another worthy of consideration is three-time winner Victory Trip from Dennis Bosch’s stable with champion Lyle Hewitson in the saddle.

Duncan Howells and Mark Khan could get punters away to a profitable start in the first two races on the card.

Three-year-old Rocket Fire looks ready to strike in Race 1 and in Race 2 Toronto appears to fit the bill.
