WAR OF ATHENA 1-3 TO WIN SA OAKS

Malmoos has been priced up at 1-1 to win the Grade 1 World Sports Betting SA Derby over 2450m at Turffontein on Saturday.

A victory in this race would make the son of Captain Al the fourth winner of this prestigious event.

Supporters of Mike de Kock’s charge will be pleasantly surprised by the odds but the bookmakers have priced up Second Base, a two-length runner-up behind Malmoos in the Grade 1 SA Classic over 1800m, at 5-2, making Johan Janse van Vuuren’s charge a clear danger over this distance.

It is a different story in the Grade 2 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks where War Of Athena is at 1-3 to be the fourth recipient of the SA Triple Tiara. Paul Matchett’s charge has not been hard pressed to win the first two legs and the connections will be confident she can claim the R1-million bonus that will go with a victory.

Paul Peter-trained Netta, who finished second behind War Of Athena in the Grade 1 Wilgerbosdrift SA Fillies Classic over 1800m, is on offer at 11-2 with De Kock-trained Sparkling Water the only runner quoted in single figures, at 8-1.

Got The Greenlight is at 9-10 to win this year’s HF Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes, one of three Grade 1 races over 1600m in the country.

Joe Soma’s charge, who won the Daily News 2000 and was runner-up in the Vodacom Durban July last year, showed his class when just touched off by MK’s Pride in the Grade 2 Hawaii Stakes over 1400m in his comeback run.

Expressfromtheus is at 8-1, Copper Mountain at 9-1, Cirillo at 10-1 and Tierra Del Fuego at 13-1.
