Barry’s back!

SATURDAY sees a welcome return to the stable for Barry Irwin’s Team Valor International, a part of several “glory days” in the stable with the likes of Ipi Tombe (photo), Irridesence, Warning Zone, Crimson Palace and Carnadore.

Team Valor’s Smokey Affair, recently transferred after a successful start with Mike Robinson in the Cape, will contest Race 6 over 1450m and Mathew de Kock commented: “Smokey Affair is showing us some good work and she’s had plenty. She looks likes she will enjoy a mile or 1800m more than this 1450m, but she is fit and has a winning chance.”
