So Easy For Humidor

The early call to move Monday’s scheduled Scottsville meeting to the Greyville poly proved inspirational. The rain continued to pour in the Capital and that would certainly have led to an abandonment but the poly drained nicely after Monday’s Durban monsoon even though a steady drizzle continued to make things uncomfortable.

The switch to the poly may have been a concern for the connections of Scottsville 1200m record holder Humidor making his poly debut but Tony Rivalland’s runner was never troubled as Muzi Yeni steered him to a rather comfortable victory in the White Horse Function Room Handicap.

Much better behaved at the start, Humidor (Miesque's Approval - Lewinsky's Lover) was out in a flash and was never troubled as he went to the line well clear of Celtic Captain and Ten Gun Salute.

This was the big gelding’s fifth win from just eight starts and now that he is proven on the poly he has more options open to him.
