In-form trainer Adam Marcus, whose only two runners both won at Kenilworth last Saturday, will again be represented by just two runners when Cape racing returns to Durbanville this weekend.

Marcus’ only two runners, Brave Move and Bridal Party, are currently favourite by World Sports Betting to land races six and seven respectively –and it would be a brave man to take on the Marcus yard at the moment.

A consistent four-year-old daughter of Horse Chestnut, Brave Move will be seeking a hatrick of wins when she lines up in a FM97 divided handicap over a mile at the country course this weekend.  Yet to finish out of the first three in seven appearances, the four-year-old has seen her merit rating rise from 79 to 92 and she looks progressive. Aldo Domeyer who won on her last time again gets the ride on Saturday.

She could face a tough rival in the form of Qing, however, with that Snaith runner meeting Brave Move on 5kgs better terms for a 3.35 length beat when they last met. Qing, however, has not won since January 2016!

Top weight Love To Boogie, dropping in class having contested the G3 Vasco Prix du Cap last time out, tries the 1600m for a first time and has a 100% strike rate at Durbanville which could play in her favour.

Brave Move’s stable mate Bridal Party will be looking to make amends for a narrow defeat, as favourite, last time out. A winner of her only outing over the course and distance, the daughter of Ideal World could well be rewarded for consistency on Saturday.
Her biggest danger could be the well bred Indian Song, with that Silvano filly having followed up an impressive debut win when finishing 2.6 lengths back (after being slow away and losing two lengths at the start) in a handicap over 1400m at Durbanville –behind the Adam Marcus trained Amazingly.
