The first race at Borrowdale Park tomorrow is due off at 13 10 and six horses are due to line up for a 1000m Maiden Plate.

This field includes Tequila Man, Clifton Brawler and Safiyaa, plus three unknowns – Signett, Dindingwe and Jenny Blue. Regarding the newcomers, I only know they have not raced before but have no information about breeding as the two sites I usually turn to haven’t caught up with the Borrowdale fields yet. No doubt later in the day.

Clifton Brawler from Vee Racing ran third behind Citrusdal over 1700m at the last meeting, and prior to that was a close second to Petroni Vini over 1200m.

Tequila Man trained by Bridget Stidolph and with claiming apprentice Munashe Josi on board, was 2.80 lengths off Widjaan over 1000m on June 3, with Clifton Brawler behind him that day. He has been well placed over 1200m in previous starts and should go close here – unless one of the newbies surprises us.
