Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R95.000, 12:25GMT+2

Race Summary: After running second in both starts to date AMERICAN HUSTLE should open his account here. Of those that have raced PRIX ECLIPSE and GREY MISSILE should prove the main dangers. The former has been close up to date while the latter could come on heaps as a gelding after a rest. BARISTA, and OLD MAN TYME could get into the mix.

#10 American Hustle, #6 Prix Eclips, #16 Grey Missile, #14 Old Man Tyme

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R95.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: GREENER PASTURES battled to get into it last time but should be fitter now and will take a power of beating. ELUSIVE CORAL has been threatening and shouldn't be far off. RUSTLING LEAF showed inexperience on debut and will know more about it. DANCE DANCE can do better. Watch debutantes GOLDEN GALE and TYTRIS.

#12 Greener Pastures, #5 Elusive Coral, #11 Golden Gale, #14 Rustling Leaf

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 3, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R95.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: ETERNAL SUMMER got going late last time and the marathon distance should suit. She could hold off MATANUSKA on the Irish Wonder Girl form line but the latter will relish the extra as well. PACHANGA was found wanting last time but travels still further now. She is a trier. RATION MY PASSION is never far back and shouldn't be far off again. Others are looking for minor money.

#9 Eternal Summer, #1 Matanuska, #3 Ration My Passion, #2 Pachanga

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 4, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R107.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: CHARIOT OF GOLD and GOTTALOTTALUV look a cut above the rest and should fight this out. Previously the former had the edge on form but disappointed last time and with 3kg less to shoulder and a master judge of pace aboard it could go the other way. HORSEPLAY needed his last run and could improve over the longer distance. Any one of the remaining 4 runners could make the frame.

#7 Gottalottaluv, #1 Chariot Of Gold, #5 Horseplay, #3 Mr Money

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 5, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R95.000, 14:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Tricky. THE BOSBOK has been threatening from day one and could get it right here. BLACK SAIL loved the longer trip and could have his consistency rewarded. He should hold NOBLE EMBLEM, THE HONEY BADGER, VOODOO and AERONAUTICAL (needed it) on their last encounter. KALAHARI CHROME pulled up lame last time. PERFECT GENTLEMAN could get into the mix. THE LITIGATOR can improve.

#1 The Bosbok, #3 Black Sail, #4 Noble Emblem, #2 Aeronautical

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 6, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R112.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: GOEDE HOOP is only maturing now and won full of running this course and distance last time. She could double up. She is in receipt of 5kg from SUNSHINE SILK who needed her last run and could find the task a bit too much. SAILOR GIRL and ARTE are honest earners and could get into the mix again. LITTLEWOOD tries the marathon trip in this her 2nd run after a rest.

#7 Goede Hoop, #2 Sunshine Silk, #3 Sailor Girl, #1 Arte

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R112.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Difficult. RINGS AND THINGS is back on her winning track and could double up.Top weights VINE STREET STAR and COLOUR OF LIGHT have ability but return from rests. If either are ready could take home honours. The latter is coupled with lightly raced THREE STARS who won well after a rest and could follow up. ARIKEL, LA ROQUETTE and LADY OF THE WORLD are more for the short list.

#3 Rings And Things, #13 Three Stars, #1 Vine Street Star, #2 Colour Of Light

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R88.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: ROBBERG EXPRESS showed his ability with a good first run as a gelding and what beats him will win. There are many looking to take him on. Top weight SNOW IN SEATTLE will be at peak fitness. GALACTIC WARRIOR could find best form. MOSHAV is improving again. REBEL RENEGADE, PHILLYDELPHIA and SPORTING MONARCH are a few more to consider.

#4 Robberg Express, #1 Snow In Seattle, #7 Galactic Warrior, #11 Moshav

Vaal, 13.11.2018, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R82.000, 17:15GMT+2

Race Summary: FICTITIOUS narrowly beat ILHA DA VAR, CLAREMORRIS and GOA last time this track and trip and it could get close all round. FLY NORTH is drawn on the inside (watch the draws on earlier races) and should be cherry-ripe. COUNTESS VAR was not striding out last time - watch for a better showing. KUNGFOOFIGHTING, ELUSIVE STRIKE and reserve QUEEN OF WAR could make the frame.

#7 Fly North, #1 Countess Var, #8 Ilha Da Var, #5 Goa

Best Win: #10 AMERICAN HUSTLE                   
Best Value Bet: #7 FLY NORTH                          
Best Longshot: #7 FLY NORTH

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 1, Gallops, 1800m, Poly, R97.500, 12:50GMT+2

Race Summary: ARGENTEUS is in good form and with a 4kg claiming apprentice up could take full advantage. But she runs prior and that run and must be monitored there.O' KEEFE is another poly specialist and one that has had a few fights and won some. She should give a good account of herself again. ESCAPE CLUB has done little wrong but races after rest here. PUMPKIN QUEEN must have a say.

#1 Argenteus, #3 O' Keeffe, #5 Escape Club, #2 Pumpkin Queen

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 13:25GMT+2

Race Summary: NERIA meets a weak looking bunch on her polytrack debut and she could be up to it. Her West Cape form looks good enough. However she did run on the poly in a Trial and will need to improve on that. NOBLE APPROACH has had wide draws and could prove to be a big danger. She has shown potential. LADY SHARON needs to overcome a wide draw. EXCESSIVE GRACE can start to show.

#1 Neria, #6 Noble Approach, #5 Lady Sharon, #9 Excessive Grace

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 14:00GMT+2

Race Summary: FROZEN TUNE should have won by now. Has a wide draw again but could relish racing on the poly. LINE OF CONTROL has been making progress in his races and has a decent draw here. PRINCE CHARMING keeps running fair races and could finally bag a win. He makes the switch from turf to poly. DOUBLE DELUXE and LARRY JACK seem to have potential in the bank.

#5 Frozen Tune, #2 Line Of Control, #1 Prince Charming, #10 Double Deluxe

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R74.000, 14:35GMT+2

Race Summary: SHEZA ROCKSTAR won when trying a bit of ground. She goes further still and can follow up. EDEN GARDEN GLITZ can get away as she takes a drop in class and is proving consistent. MIZIARA improved in blinkers but has drawn wide. Still she must be considered. Stable mate BARINOIS is also capable - her last win came at this venue. ETERNAL WORDS has the best of the draw.

#11 Sheza Rockstar, #4 Eden Gardens Glitz, #2 Miziara, #1 Barinois

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R74.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: ELEGANT ROYAL relished this longer trip last time. She beat the boys and has scope for further improvement. She has the best of the draw to boot. QUEEN'S PLAIN went amiss and that run is best forgiven. The trip should suit on this surface. IMAGINE THAT has been running in stronger and her last run is best ignored. KILVINGTON is getting better. Respect reserve SHEIK'S STORM.

#8 Elegant Royal, #2 Queen's Plain, #1 Imagine That, #9 Kilvington

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 6, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R105.000, 15:50GMT+2

Race Summary: BELFRY has been unlucky and met one too good last time. He should have every chance in this one. Another year younger three-year-old may have his number again though. HOLE IN ONE tries the longer distance and blinkers. SECRET DYNASTY is improving steadily. DANCING MOONLIGHT has shown potential and could improve in his second run after gelding.

#1 Belfry, #8 Hole In One, #9 Secret Dynasty, #5 Dancing Moonlight

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R82.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: LAAT LAMMETJIE can't be faulted on form and could make it two from two back over her optimum distance. She does carry a big weight. CHESTNUT'S CHARM made a fair poly debut and could come on and win it. Her previous West Cape form is fair. EXPRESSO MARTINI has drawn ideally now and is knocking at the door. PLAYLIST will try to hold on to her lead if allowed to.

#1 Laat Lammetjie, #6 Chestnut's Charm, #8 Expresso Martini, #7 Playlist

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R88.000, 17:00GMT+2

Race Summary: FIELDMARSHALL FENIX has been knocking hard at the door - this could be the right race for him. RED SHIFT easily beat him last and can make further improvement but has drawn wide. He will also be having his second run after rest. GALAXY TUNES was not disgraced in a feature last and has drawn in pole. MASTER OF MISCHIEF, MUTAWAARY and DELIRIOUS NOMAD have strong claims.

#2 Fieldmarshal Fenix, #5 Red Shift, #1 Galaxy Tunes, #4 Master Of Mischief

Greyville Polytrack, 14.11.2018, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R82.000, 17:30GMT+2

Race Summary: CANDY GALORE showed promise as a youngster. She will have matured a bit and could be even better. She has a plum draw. FANCIFULLY was supported and came through to show her true form. She is better than that poly run and can follow up. TUULIKKI can get back on the scoring sheet but also runs on the 9th-watch her there first. ROSIE BUBBLIES and FLYING ANTONIA can earn.

#2 Candy Galore, #4 Fancifilly, #11 Tuulikki, #6 Rosie Bubbles

Best Win: #8 ELEGANT ROYAL                      
Best Value Bet: #2 CANDY GALORE                       
Best Longshot: #2 CANDY GALORE
