Timeform on Left Hook

Supanova - 13:05 (GMT) Vaal

Supanova is a pretty decent sprinter with four wins and 13 places from 33 starts and, with the "across the board" handicap rise of six pounds recently, he effectively runs off the same mark as when two lengths fourth at Turffontein last month when getting trapped in traffic. This looks a weaker race on paper.

The Dazzler - 13:40 (GMT) Vaal

The Dazzler wasn't beaten far last time out when fifth in the Egoli Mile at Turffontein, beaten just a length and a quarter behind winner Soldier On. With the Mike de Kock string in good form, the son of Mogok looks potentially well handicapped here and The Dazzler has been found a far easier race to win.

Left Hook - 15:30 (GMT) Vaal

Left Hook is the highest rated horse in this maiden by 4 lb and was beaten less than a length at Turffontein over a mile last month when running on strongly. If he improves again as expected, then Left Hook can deliver a knockout blow this afternoon for trainer Joe Soma.
