Happy to be his dad’s lynchpin
Mike de Kock now calls on the family to help out – or, more correctly, his son Mathew.
Brendan Gaillard: The Pomodoro gelding Time Master is having a good season and there are a couple of reasons to suggest he can strike winning form again and take Race 2, a MR 59 Handicap over 2200m at Flamingo Park on Monday.
The seven-year-old ran over 1200m at this course earlier in the month and was a bit unfortunate to bump into what appeared to be a well-handicapped rival in Captain Dion.
This full sister to useful Euphoric should relish going 1200m and now jumps from an inside gate against females, so there’s lots to like about her chances.
Invidia was gelded and he hopefully will return a beer horse.
Although the fields are typically small at Durbanville on Tuesday, the racing overall remains competitive.
