Lemon Tea could be the one to savour

Jockey Anton Marcus is an eye-catching booking as he does not often ride for the yard.

Trainer Weiho Marwing is always one to watch when raiding Kwa-Zulu Natal and his runner Lemon Tea in Race 7 tonight at Greyville a FM 75 Handicap over 2000m on the turf, can be worth an Eachway strike.

Although not winning off her mark of 75 – adjusted after winning in August – this Lateral filly has held her form and will probably appreciate being back on the turf.

Jockey Anton Marcus is an eye-catching booking as he does not often ride for the yard.

The Australian-bred Princess Varunya is an improving three-year-old who can be better than rated and is the main danger.

Jockey Marcus is also aboard a decent ride in Race 1 with The Lonsdale.

One can safely ignore his last run and the Mogok four-year-old should go close to winning.

The Mike de Kock-trained Aficionada in Race 5, a MR 66 Handicap over 2000m, put a disappointing penultimate run behind him when winning over this course and distance last time out.

The blinkers may have done the trick and it is unlikely that this Visionaire gelding will win only the one race.

The banker bet for most punters appears to be Modernista in the lucky last race.

The combination of Duncan Howells and Muzi Yeni is a good one and the filly is improving.

This slightly longer distance of 2000m should also suit her.

Lizzie’s Chapel and Maybe can be expected to chase her home.

Another deadly yard at the moment is the Dean Kannemeyer stable and Ferdnand The Bull is sure to have his supporters to win Race 6, a FM 73 Handicap over 1600m.

This longer trip is sure to suit him better than the 1200m of his last race.
