ON CUE

Jack Milner: On Cue brings has run against some decent fillies and should prove too good for her older in Race 4 at the Vaal on Tuesday.

On Cue was due to race at the Vaal last Tuesday but was withdrawn. That would have been her final race as a two-year-old but as the new season was ushered in on 1 August, and all the horses in the southern hemisphere turned one year older, when On Cue lines up in Race 4 at the Vaal on Tuesday in a MR 71 Handicap for fillies and mare over 1000m, it will be as a three-year-old.  

In her last race, the Ashley Fortune-trained filly finished a 1.60-length second to Sheela, who ran third in the Grade 1 Allan Robertson Championship over 1200m at Scottsville.

That was an excellent effort by the Oratorio filly. Her scratching from last week’s race might work to her advantage as that race was over 1200m. At this stage of her career On Cue is probably a little better over 1000m.

It is often a tough ask for young fillies to take on their elders at this stage of their career in a handicap but On Cue does have a further advantage in that apprentice Philasande Mxoli will take an additional 2.5kg off her back.

Seemyvision caused a huge upset in her last start when she beat Madame Patrice by 1.10 lengths at a starting price of 50-1 but that was only her second run for the Roy Magner yard which she joined in mid-May after having been based in KwaZulu-Natal for some six months.

She could be worth following and may be the runner best place to chase home On Cue. Brian Nyawo rode her to victory last time and obviously it comes as no surprise that he will be aboard the five-year-old mare once again.
