RACE 1: Turffontein Racecourse
KUUMA gets the nod of approval on rules debut for Sean Tarry out of his latest sire LANCE. He should be well-prepared for this task. COLD FACT is another newcomer for a yard known for their juveniles. Paul Peter will have him similarly ready for the job.
Top Tip – KUUMA (1)
One to consider – COLD FACT (4)
RACE 2: Turffontein Racecourse
HEAVENS GIRL begins her career jumping from pole positon and should be another case of a well-readied Paul Peter charge making a splash. CAPTAIN’S RUN gets a mention on pedigree and could prove just as useful for Corne Spies.
Top Tip – HEAVENS GIRL (4)
One to consider – CAPTAIN’S RUN (3)
RACE 3: Turffontein Racecourse
LUCY BELLE has landed in the money in all 4 career starts and is due to come to the boil sooner rather than later. The barrier 14 draw is a worry but with an honest ride she’s good enough to go for gold. LEGAL STAR is a progressive sort who should give a pleasing account now fresh from 3 months rest.
Top Tip – LUCY BELLE (5)
One to consider – LEGAL STAR (4)
RACE 4: Turffontein Racecourse
THE BASTILLE has improved with each run and should relish he extra furlong. This Paul Peter charge shouldn’t remain a maiden for too much longer. NUMBERNINETYNINE is a big threat having rattled the crossbar in 4 of his last 5 starts. He should be thereabouts once more.
Top Tip – THE BASTILLE (8)
One to consider – NUMBERNINETYNINE (1)
RACE 5: Turffontein Racecourse
FRESH FROM THE US has the worst draw of the lot but if he can get away well he’s a strong pick on form. His last 4 starts have been pleasing including a narrow trip win at Vaal. INDLAMU opened the account on 2nd start and has plenty more to come, he heads the list of dangers and should be well-backed.
Top Tip – FRESH FROM THE US (6)
One to consider – INDLAMU (8)
RACE 6: Turffontein Racecourse
MAJOR RETURN had excuses when 6th over track and trip latest and his win before that over this trip at Vaal was most convincing. He’s got the scope to get back on top and has pole position helping his cause. CRANK IT UP has to give weight all around but hasn’t run a bad race in a very long time and should be able to put plenty of pressure on his opponents.
Top Tip – MAJOR RETURN (10)
One to consider – CRANK IT UP (1)
RACE 7: Turffontein Racecourse
ILLUMINATE gets a conditional nod as first reserve. If she gets a run she’s going to be the one to beat. She’s bested a lot of this field in the past and has a 9f hat trick firm in her crosshair. If she doesn’t get a run the tip goes to ANATURA who has been knocking at the door lately and should be taken more seriously in the betting following her 8f 3rd here last month.
Top Tip – ILLUMINATE (17)
One to consider – ANATURA (4)
RACE 8: Turffontein Racecourse
GANG LEADER is a hit and miss sort who has the talent to land a competitive event like this if he arrives with his head in the game. KWITE A TRIP has landed 4th in 3 of 4 career runs and now sporting blinkers and dropped in yardage should be able to crack into the placings.
Top Tip – GANG LEADER (4)
One to consider – KWITE A TRIP (1)
