The 4Racing Computaform Sprint (Grade 1) over 1000m looks equally exciting as Justin Snaith will be bringing Grade 1 Cape Flying Championship winner Rio Querari to take on the likes of Chimichuri Run, Russet Air, True To Life, last year’s champion Rivarine and a host of other speedsters.

Also run at the meeting are the Grade 2 4Racing SA Nursery, the Grade 2 4Racing SA Fillies Nursery and the Grade 2 4Racing Camellia Stakes for fillies and mares – all over 1160m – the Grade 2 4Racing Gerald Rosenberg Stakes for fillies and mares over 2000m, and the Grade 3 4Racing Gold Bowl over 3200m. – Phumelela
