Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R74.000, 12:30GMT+2

Race Summary: QUEEN NITOCRIS makes her local debut but if fit she could win but this distance does appear too short for her COASTAL STORM ran better last time out but that was on the Polytrack and she does appear better on that surface. HALLO ROSIE has some fair recent form and could contest the finish once again. HEART STONE is better than her last run and can go close to winning.

#1 Queen Nitocris, #5 Heart Stone, #2 Coastal Storm, #6 Fashion Force

Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R74.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: ANDREA is battling to win but could earn some minor money. BOLD LINNGARI showed good improvement in her second start and should fight out the finish. BUZZ WORD needs to do more to win. COVE FORT showed promise when supported onher debut. With improvement likely she should be hard to beat. PARAHELIO ALLEY was not disgraced on debut and does have a winning chance this time.

#4 Cove Fort, #2 Bold Linngari, #6 Parahelio Alley, #7 Skydancer

Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R74.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: SUZIE MAYWEATHER disappointed last week but she was trying Blinkers that day and hopefully those have been discarded with. She ran well over this course and distance in her previous start. ELUSIVE GREEN and WINTER ORCHID needs to do more to win but could finish in the money. GINGER ROCK is better than her last run would suggest and could pop up in the places. IN THE SKY can win

#6 In The Sky, #1 Suzie Mayweather, #14 Nevertheless, #2 Elusive Green

Race 4, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R74.000, 14:15GMT+2

Race Summary: BENEVOLENCE was a bit unlucky last time out and could improve. CONQUERING KING is battling to win but continues to hold hid form and one of these days he may well crack a win. TOM TOM could improve for his new trainer. PRINCE IN ACTION showed improvement last time out but needs to do more to win. GUTHRIE could improve and must be respected. SILVARI should contest the finish.

#5 Guthrie, #1 Benevolence, #6 Silvari, #7 Convention

Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R69.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: SILVERY HEIGHTS was full of running on her local debut and could follow up but she is tackling a stronger field this time. DALLEY is distance suited and could finish in the money. VICTORY MARCH just got up last time and this isa stronger race. ONE DESTINY is improving and does have a winning chance. AWAKENING showed good improvement when unlucky last time out and can place.

#2 Silvery Heights, #9 Brigadoon Ely, #10 Palo Alto, #8 Awakening

Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R69.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: COYOTE CREEK is better than his last two runs and could cause an upset. FAKE NEWS could be the surprise package returning to the turf. EXCKUSIVITY returns to the turf and could improve. LEADMAN is in good heart and has a winning chance. SUNDAY FALLS has been doing well recently and must be respected. THREE TIMES A LADY could place. MARGOT FONTEYN is looking for a hat-trick.

#5 Leadman, #7 Sunday Falls, #12 Okavango Delta, #11 Hopeful

Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R150.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: A tough race to find the winner. RAVEN GIRL returns from a break but does have a winning chance. WIDOW'S LAMP could be returning to her best form. MADAME SPEAKER is a class filly but is returning from a lengthy break. DELIA'S DELIGHT has done her yard proud so far and deserves respect once again. RED GINGER could cause an upset with Richard Fourie aboard. LOVE SUPREME can place

#6 Red Ginger, #1 Raven Girl, #5 Delia's Delight, #3 Madame Speaker

Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R78.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Another very difficult race. LE GRAND ROUGE has not won for some time now but can win a race like this if he behaves at the start. SEATTLE OAK could earn some minor money. ELLE VA returns from a short break but does have a winning chance. FORT WINTER is unreliable but could pop up in the places. STOPTHINKINGOFME is consistent and has a winning chance. DI ME can go close again.

#10 Di Me, #2 Le Grand Rouge, #3 Seattle Oak, #4 Elle Va

Best Win: #4 COVE FORT                          
Best Value Bet:                                       
Best Longshot: #6 RED GINGER             


Saturday, 20 July


Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R95.000, 12:00GMT+2

Race Summary: The younger runners could have the upper hand. ETCHED IN BLUE showed good improvement in his 2nd start and will come on more. POP ICON should enjoy this track and could keep going. KELLAN'S COMET races as a gelding for the first time after a rest - respect. LION KING needs to go on with it but it could be his day. INSIDE POLITICS shouldn't be far off. SILVER SEA can improve.

#6 Etched In Blue, #8 Pop Icon, #2 Kellan's Comet, #3 Lion King

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R95.000, 12:35GMT+2

Race Summary: INITIATOR flew up late this course and distance to be narrowly beaten and will know more about it now. BEFORE THE DAWN has run close up in all 3 starts but Lyle appears to have opted for debutante KYRU - watch the money. Other first-timers to respect are CAPITIANA and MAKOROKOTO. NYMERIA could place.

#9 Kyru, #8 Initiator, #5 Capitiana, #3 Before The Dawn

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R105.000, 13:15GMT+2

Race Summary: This is not a strong juvenile plate and recent maiden winners over 1200m MARGOT'S MAGIC and RISK TAKER could go in again over a mile. Maiden MACHALI receives 3kg from them and wasn't disgraced on debut. She will relish the distance. CARRY ME CARRIE, MISS CAP MALA and SECRET STASH could make up the quartet.

#2 Risk Taker, #6 Machali, #1 Margot's Magic, #4 Carry Me Carrie

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R105.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: STEAK AND ALE beat PERFECTLY PUTT by 2 lengths but the latter was on debut and with 3kg better terms should reverse it. CRAZY CHARLIE comes into the picture on the same form line. ARAPAHO needed his first run as a gelding and will come on. Maiden MOONLIGHTSTRANGER is improving nicely and could get into the mix. JOHNNY HERO has a shout if behaves at the start.

#8 Perfectly Putt, #1 Arapaho, #5 Crazy Charlie, #7 Moonlightstranger

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R130.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: JET START races for her new yard. She has ability and if ready should make a bold bid. GIFT FOR THE GAP is back to best and could go in again. AMERICAN INDIAN enjoys this track and is holding form - chance again. COLD CASH has won here and must be respected off a handy weight. GLIDER PILOT and SENOR LIZARD are looking to get into the quartet

#2 Jet Start, #4 Gift For The Gap, #3 American Indian, #6 Cold Cash

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R76.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Open. BOATSWAIN needed his last run and could win it from a decent draw. MASTER BUILDER runs on late and could get into the mix once again. VARIMAX was coughing last time and should do better. BAAHIR is never far back and should run another honest race. PRINCE JORDAN is capable but needs to confirm. Stable mate TOMBOLA debuts for her yard - watch! HOT AUGUST could place.

#3 Boatswain, #6 Master Boulder, #4 Varimax, #7 Baahir

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R105.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: GIMMETHENIGHT is having his peak run and should run a big race. GIMME HOPE JOHANNA is honest and should give another good showing. LAKE KINNERET is running close up and should be thereabouts again. ROCKY NIGHT hasn't been far back lately and could take home a cheque. LONE SURVIVOR and lightly raced CULTURE TRIP could get into the picture.

#5 Gimmethenight, #3 Gimme Hope Johanna, #1 Lake Kinneret, #2 Rocky Night

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: DOGLIOTTI races as a gelding for the first time after a rest and could come on heaps. AFRICAN ADVENTURE took off late when not fancied on debut but will know more about it now. THE IRISHMAN and BLANCO are not going to Hollywood and are drawn wide but are having their peak runs. CROSS FROM GOA races before this this - respect over the extra. MIGHTY STORM could earn.

#3 Dogliotti, #6 African Adventure, #2 The Irishman, #1 Blanco

Turffontein Inside, 20.07.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: This is not a strong Maiden plate and if money comes for newcomers FOREVER FLAME and BELLA ROSA either could win it - watch. PRINCESS PENELOPE is the form runner but needs to overcome a wide draw. THE JOCELYN TREE is doing better and could get into the mix. NOTQUITETHEREYET has drawn wide but with ROSALINA could make the frame.

#1 Princess Penelope, #9 Forever Flame, #2 The Jocelyn Tree, #8 Bella Rosa

Best Win: #8 PERFECTLY PUTT                     
Best Value Bet: #3 DOGLIOTTI                           
Best Longshot: #3 DOGLIOTTI                          


Race 1, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: BAYBERRY found betting support on debut, and finished well after a sluggish beginning. Go close. Similar story for IT'S COMPLEX, but with no market support. GOLD MEDAL should be respected on debut effort, and seems much better than latest. CAPTAIN YOLO has two fair tries, and should improve after gelding.

#2 Bayberry, #6 It's Complex, #5 Gold Medal, #4 Captain Yolo

Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R80.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: BENICARLO made eye catching late progress on debut, and looks the one to beat. CELTIC VOYAGER will challenge if repeating his penultimate. Any betting support for well bred MYHOPESANDDREAMS must be respected. YORKTOWN made a fair debut and now gets Marcus. Similarly respect TWILIGHT ZONE as Fayd'Herbe has a good recent record for Reeves

#1 Benicarlo, #3 Celtic Voyager, #10 Myhopesanddreams, #11 Twilight Zone

Race 3, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R83.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: CAPTAIN'S DARLING has done little wrong, and has plenty of scope for further improvement. The same can be said for rested LUMIERE. KATHLEEN displayed impressive pace last time, and must be respected. HIDDEN STRINGS seems best this trip and can upset. Respect the maiden VICTORIA TOWER at the weights.

#1 Captain's Darling, #5 Lumiere, #4 Kathleen, #8 Victoria Tower

Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R80.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Very open. DESTRUCTION BOY made big improvement last time, but needs to confirm. EMPIRE GLORY is well tried, but could pop up racing fresh. The two 4yo's SPY and CAPTAIN'S ADVICE have a shout on latest efforts. The Snaith juveniles STOPALLTHECLOCKS and VERATRUM can both improve to win this. Well bred debutante BLACK DUKE won't need to be a star to pop up.

#11 Veratrum, #9 Stopalltheclocks, #2 Destruction Boy, #3 Empire Glory

Race 5, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R80.000, 15:15GMT+2

Race Summary: Another puzzler. BOLD ASSASSIN goes for hat trick, but more to do at the weights. Shouldn't be much between him and THE SILVA FOX. ANZE LAZIO clearly stays well but was outclassed in the Winter Derby. Respect with Fourie. RETROEFFECT, TROOP THE COLOUR and BIG FISH all have valid claims as well.

#4 Anse Lazio, #2 The Silva Fox, #1 Bold Assassin, #6 Troop The Colour

Race 6, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R250.000, 15:50GMT+2

Race Summary: PLATINUM CLASS won the Ladies Mile going away, and has this field stone cold if getting the 1800m. A very confident selection. Stable mate MISS KATALINcould threaten if finding best form. Reliable and game LIBRA completes a strong Snaith contingent. The others look up against it.

#1 Platinum Class, #2 Miss Katalin, #3 Libra, #5 Pearl Jam

Race 7, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R250.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Three-year-old RUN FOX RUN has outclassed all she has met so far, and it would be a major surprise were she not to score a first Graded win here. Headed for far bigger things. Fellow youngster LESEDI LA RONA is a smart sprinter,and can prove best of the rest. DYNAMIC DIANA has some class and can earn.

#5 Run Fox Run, #7 Lesedi La Rona, #1 Dynamic Diana, #6 Canukeepitsecret

Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R72.000, 17:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Tough closer. LIP SERVICE would be first choice had she not pulled a very bad draw. MISS D'ARAY on other hand is well weighted at best, and will be up there from inside gate. OMEGA FORCE is usually thereabouts and jumps from pole position. PETITE BIJOU, VALDERRAMA, and the maiden HERCULES GIRL all have claims in a wide open affair.

#10 Miss D' Aray, #4 Lip Service, #1 Omega Force, #2 Petite Bijou

Best Win: #5 RUN FOX RUN                        
Best Value Bet: #10 MISS D'ARAY                       
Best Longshot: #10 MISS D'ARAY  


Sunday, 21 July


Race 1, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 12:15GMT+2

Race Summary: ELECTRIC SURGE, ANOTHER SECRET and WINTERTIME renew rivalry with all running good races in that event. ELECTRIC SURGE was a good third behind a subsequent feature winner thereafter and has a great draw and rider. WINTERTIME should relish the trip and get closer. MISS MISSOURI has not drawn well. She has decent form as well. WATCHWORD met males last time.

#4 Electric Surge, #10 Wintertime, #1 Another Secret, #6 Miss Missouri

Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 12:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Youngster DUTCH ALLEY was eye catching and a big improver last time. He has the best of the draw and could be hard to beat if taking to the poly. ORCHID STREET brings fair enough Highveld form into the race. He could relish the poly but has a wide draw to overcome on local debut. UNCLE FRANK is holding form nicely and is proven on the poly. SOULJA BOY could attract support.

#8 Dutch Alley, #2 Orchid Street, #9 Uncle Frank, #6 Soulja Boy

Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R105.000, 13:25GMT+2

Race Summary: The start of the Rider Cup - choose and back your jockey! OVER THE LIMIT has shown versatility in the Highveld and could relish the polytrack after running on firm surfaces. Similar claims for GLACIER GIRL who boasts a good rider and draw as well as decent form. The pair can fight it out. However there are youngsters that can improve nicely. SACRED BLUES could be best.

#1 Over The Limit, #2 Glacier Girl, #11 Sacred Blues, #12 Tallulah Jet

Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R88.000, 14:00GMT+2

Race Summary: LA VALETTE made good progress over shorter last time and it was her first official try on the poly. She may relish the slightly longer trip here. MITRA MUSIC carries a big weight but she boasts plenty experience for that and has the best of the draw to boot. EDEN GARDEN GLITZ is capable and this could be the race for her. SPAM ALERT had excuses last time and could impress.

#6 La Valette, #1 Mitra Music, #5 Eden Gardens Glitz, #2 Spam Alert

Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R79.000, 14:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Well bred MISS SABINA had a great draw on local debut but raced from the back of the field after rest. She can only improve but has drawn wide this time. BARINOIS did well before a wide draw spoiled it for her at Scottsville. Still she must relish being back on the poly here. IMPERIAL ROYAL loves racing at the front and could go on untroubled. MORE THAN A DIME can improve.

#3 Miss Sabina, #7 Barinois, #1 Imperial Royal, #8 More Than A Dime

Race 6, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R70.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: O'REILLY would be deserving having run 9 places out of his 12 tries on the poly. He had a tougher test in a feature last time and should enjoy this level again. GIMME A COHIBA may be hard to catch though. He is one from one this track and trip from the front. TECHNO CAPTAIN goes a lot further again. He could relish the trip as he does run on well. DON PIERRO has a say. Open.

#1 O'Reilly, #3 Gimmie A Cohiba, #7 Techno Captain, #5 Don Pierro

Race 7, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R102.375, 15:50GMT+2

Race Summary: SUGAR GIRL is best weighted by some margin and has run well in strong races for fillies and mares. She is also one from one on the poly. But she races after rest and LAND OF MYSTERY who impressed on the poly last time and has the best of the draw could take advantage. Stable mates THE MASTER and BLACKBURN ROC have good form on the poly as well. Almost all have claims here.

#4 Land Of Mystery, #3 Sugar Girl, #1 The Master, #5 Blackburn Roc

Race 8, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R105.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: MYRRH flew up after racing in last in a handicap last time. He could be on the up again and if repeating will have a big say. VELVET SEASON has finished ahead of him and on form would be deserving. JURIST ran a much improved race at Scottsville and could have more improvement in the tank. Rates another serious contender. INDIGO TRACTOR can get better as well.

#6 Myrrh, #2 Velvet Season, #4 Jurist, #1 Indigo Tractor

Best Win: #8 DUTCH ALLEY                        
Best Value Bet: #3 MISS SABINA                        
Best Longshot: #3 MISS SABINA
