Race Summary: ARNICA MONTANA drifted in the betting on debut but acquitted himself well -look for improvement. DATE PALM wasn't disgraced on debut and the form has been franked. LATIN OPUS has the form but could just need it. He is coupled with newcomer ZULUONMYSTOEP - watch the betting. All of the above have wide draws. KWIKSTIX has fared better in the draw and will relish the extra.

Selections:
#9 Arnica Montana, #10 Date Palm, #8 Kwikstix, #7 Zuluonmystoep

Race 2, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R112.000, 13:45GMT+2

Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R112.000, 14:25GMT+2

Selections:
#4 Wisteria Walk, #6 Balletto, #5 The Fifth Wave, #1 Image Award

Race 4, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R94.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Both HIDDEN AGENDA (rejuvenated) and LIGHTHEARTED are in top form and both will be looking to complete a hat-trick. Top weight LAZARUS TREE could keep on galloping here. AFRICAN ROCK is running well which brings MOVIE MAGIC (problems last time) into the picture. MIYOSHI won her only try this track and trip and will be catching late. PROFIT RATIO could grab them late.

Selections:
#3 Lighthearted, #1 Lazarus Tree, #2 Hidden Agenda, #4 African Rock

Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R100.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: HEART STWINGS is improving with racing and wasn't disgraced on the poly in her post-maiden. WALNUT DASH blew her chances at the start last time and could make amends. PLUM FIELD won on debut in her new surroundings and could follow up. ANIMAL LOVER beat SAMMI MOOSA by a length and it could get close on1kg difference. TOMBOLA will appreciate the 4kg allowance.

#10 Walnut Dash, #7 Heart Stwings, #9 Plum Field, #5 Animal Lover

Race 6, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R130.000, 16:15GMT+2

FACT stays well, gets big weight from them and he too has won his only start this track and trip.

Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R60.000, 16:55GMT+2

Race Summary: Moderate line up. FLATTLEY is improving and at the weights could make his presence felt. PRINCE OF PROMISE should have no problem with the 200m extra and could go in again. SO LONG SPRING comes from the same form line but is capable of better. JAGESA JAGESA gives weight all round but could come out trumps. ROCKY PATH tries further - check the form. TO THE REGIMENT can earn.

Selections:
#8 Flattley, #1 Jagesa Jagesa, #6 Prince Of Promise, #7 So Long Spring

Race 8, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R100.000, 17:30GMT+2

GREYVILLE


Race 1, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R105.000, 12:20GMT+2

Race Summary: BABY SHOOZ made a fair debut at Scottsville and had a wide draw in a feature second time out. He still ran a fair race. He would have made further progress during a break and can come out ready. BACKPACKER is a well related Silvano colt and he is jumping from a plum draw after a fair debut run. Expect more. Filly RETAIL THERAPY was close up behind a fair sort. More in it.

Selections:
#7 Baby Shooz, #8 Backpacker, #14 Retail Therapy, #13 Whateverittakes

Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R105.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: LUNDY'S LAD showed potential in the West Cape earlier this year. He has obvious ability and makes the change to Kzn racing. But he has drawn wide. GLADSTONE would have found his last two too short. Expect better over this trip.FRANKIE TWO SHOES was a winner except on the line in his penultimate which was on this turf track. RED HOT NIGHT is another older runner with claims.

Selections:
#11 Lundy's Lad, #6 Gladstone, #1 Frankie Two Shoes, #2 Red Hot Night

Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R105.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: AMERICAN PRINCESS showed promise 'winning' her barrier trial. She is a well bred sort and the longer trip must suit. LADY LEGEND knows the trip well now and if repeats her poly run on turf can go close. MIRROR IMAGE made good improvement over this track and trip last time and has a great draw again. MR MINISTER, WINTERTIME, MISS CHARLOTTE are some of the dangers.

Selections:
#10 American Princess, #5 Lady Legend, #1 Mirror Image, #4 Mr Minister

Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R112.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: ULTRA MAGNUS was impressive last time and could be headed for better races.However he switches from the straight to the bend and there are other strongsprinters that will make it tough. DESOLATE ROAD is better in on official ratings but is running after a few months off. The same can be said about stable mate EXCLUSIVE QUANTITY who impressed before his last run.

Selections:
#4 Ultra Magnus, #5 Desolate Road, #2 Exclusive Quantity, #1 Social Order

Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R100.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: SCARLET CHILL won two in a row after relocating from the West Cape. She only just needed it last time when second over this track and trip and can go one better today. PHILAE's next win is overdue. She may enjoy a less frantic race and could get away in this. OOH LA LA has a good record on the turf at Greyville and after needing her last run can improve a lot. More can earn.

Selections:
#6 Scarlet Chill, #4 Philae, #1 Ooh La La, #8 She's A Dream

Race 6, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R100.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: JACQUELINE tried the longer trip last time and only found one better after fighting out the finish. At Greyville she could find nothing to edge her this time. ADORABLE ANALIA will look to make it tough for her as she was doing her best work at the end and was beaten by a small margin. JAMAICA BAY has upgraded her form and should threaten again. HIGH ALTAR is capable.

Selections:
#2 Jacqueline, #7 Adorable Analia, #3 Jamaica Bay, #1 High Altar

Race 7, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R105.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: An interesting Graduation Plate. RAILTRIP is best weighted but will need to convince back on the turf over a longer trip. PADRE PIO and TREE TUMBO are youngsters that could fight it out with improvement to come. ZANAKI brings fair Highveld form into it. WHITE LIGHTNING must be respected in this.

Selections:
#6 Padre Pio, #11 Tree Tumbo, #5 Zanaki, #3 White Lightning

Race 8, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R105.000, 16:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Rested and gelded JOSEPH JAGGER brings good West Cape form into the race. He may just overcome his draw and go on to score on local debut. ANGELICO improved at this venue last time and looks a threat in this. MASTER VISION improved after gelding and he too should be on the up. RON'S JOY can get away after learning with blinkers last. NOBLE FLIGHT could get into it here.

Selections:
#4 Joseph Jagger, #5 Angelico, #6 Master Vision, #7 Ron's Joy

Race 9, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R105.000, 17:10GMT+2

Race Summary: DARK MOON DOWN ran well with males in her penultimate and then confirmed finishing a good second over more ground last time. She has the form then but has drawn wide. MARRY IN HASTE could take advantage. She has not done badly in the Highveld. PREFERENTIAL, TWICE TO SYDNEY and SIBERIAN SUNSET can all show up well at the business end.

Selections:
#10 Dark Moon Down, #11 Marry In Haste, #9 Preferential, #1 Twice To Sydney

Best Win: #4 JOSEPH JAGGER                      
Best Value Bet: #6 PADRE PIO
