Michael Clower Racing PostNoble Heir sprang a 10-1 surprise when blitzing the opposition in the Grade 1 Computaform Sprint at Turffontein on Saturday.

The two market leaders, Warm White Night and Private Jet, both flopped and were the last two home.

Anthony Delpech’s mount lost ground at the start but she was on terms two furlongs out and soon drew away to beat 18-1 shot Intellectual rather more easily than the one and three-quarter length verdict would suggest. The 2007 winner Mythical Flight was half a length away third.

Delpech reported: “Things didn’t work out to plan when we jumped but maybe that worked in my favour because they went very fast - possibly we have found a new way to ride her. She may be on the small side but all you need is a big heart and the will to win.”

Durban-based trainer Dennis Bosch added: “Noble Heir is just a bomb. It is difficult to fly horses up and down from Durban to Jo’burg so she has stayed up here with Stuart Pettigrew and much of the credit must go to him.”

Warm White Night started at 11-20 but rider Anton Marcus looked decidedly uneasy even before halfway. He accepted the situation in the final furlong as the favourite dropped right out to finish last.

Last year’s winner Private Jet (9-2) was fastest away and appearedto have every chance two furlongs out but he soon faded and was only one place in front of the favourite at the line.
