S'MANGA KHUMALO

Jack Milner: Conditions look perfect for ice and rain in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday. Not the weather, but the racetrack.

Vision On Ice and Inherit The Rain run in Race 3 and Race 7 respectively on the Polytrack at Fairview and both look stand-out bets and decent bankers for the exotics.

Well-bred Vision On Ice has been a disappointment in that she has got up to eight starts without tasting victory but she has placed on six occasions.

Being out of Icy Air, it always suggested she may need a trip of around 2000m or more to show her best and in her last start, which was over 2000m, she got very close to winning.

The Visionaire four-year-old was slowly away and did her best work at the finish to get beaten a neck by an improved sort in Weather Bomb.

In the absence of Warren Kennedy, trainer Gavin Smith has engaged S’manga Khumalo for most of his top horses for the day and he will take the ride in this Maiden Plate for fillies and mares over 1900m on the Polytrack, and this should be her day.

Vision On Ice is the best weighted runner by 3.5kg and better.

Trainer Alan Greeff has been at his very best over the last few years with recruits from other stables and Inherit The Rain is among them.

The son of Soft Falling Rain loves the Polytrack and although he has to overcome both a No 10 draw and an eight-point penalty for his latest win when he lines up in Race 7, a MR 90 Handicap over 1200m, it will not come as a surprise if he was to triumph again.

Smith-trained Williams Land will take him on, but one could argue Williams Land is better on the turf.
