Trainer Mike de Kock came away with three winners at Turffontein on Saturday. The stable could be heading for a massive summer season and it is great to see their inmates running into form.

That good run is expected to continue on Tuesday at the Vaal, where racing reverts to the Classic track for the first time in many months. De Kock sends out three runners and two of them are likely to go out strong favourites, having won their last starts. De Kock has never been scared to drop his runners in at the deep-end and that is exactly what he has done with these three. They are all in the Jackpot, which makes that bet, and the Pick 6, quite an appetising prospect.

Yakeen made his first appearance just 10 days ago and took off late in a Maiden Plate over 1400m to mow down the opposition. He went on to beat Middle Path by 1.40 lengths, producing the fastest last 400m in the race. Yakeen drifted from 2-1 to 5-1 but that could also have been because they felt it would be too short for the son of Teofilo.
