The name of trainer Juan Nel will soon be on the Fairview race cards in Port Elizabeth.

Nel is getting his stable ready to get involved on what is an old and familiar hunting ground for him.

He looked after the Justin Snaith satellite yard in the Friendly City before embarking on one of his many overseas adventures.

Nel has trained in Dubai, England and Saudi Arabia.

He has previously not only worked with Snaith but also some of South Africa’s other top conditioners like Mike de Kock, Mike Bass and Brett Crawford.

Nel says there is no pressure on him to start with a bang and huge stable numbers in PE but plan to build his stable up gradually.
