Francois Herholdt was unwell and could not ride at Borrowdale on Sunday. He was replaced by Apprentice C. Ngcobo who won the 1700m MR 55 Handicap on Nugget Effect for the Swanson stable.

By Jay Peg and bred by Normandy Stud, Nugget Effect has now won three races for owner Colin Bird. He finished 0.10 lengths ahead of a fast finishing Noble Peer (Chambers), a recent arrival in Zimbabwe now trained by Penny Fisher.
