DURBANVILLE


Race 1
Race Summary: HUNTING TRIP has finished close-up in both starts and with natural improvement should prove too good for the raced runners. Of those, F EIGHT could pose the biggest threat. Well-bred newcomers JUST BEFORE DAWN and CLOUD CHASER could make their presence felt and must be respected if the market speaks in their favour.

Selections:
#1 Hunting Trip, #10 F Eight, #7 Just Before Dawn, #11 Cloud Chaser

Race 2
Race Summary: Good race. TREASURE HUNT had both FLEETING and FUSILLADE behind her in a stronger 1600m race last time and should confirm that form on these terms, over this trip and from an inside gate. MISS GREENLIGHT made a pleasing comeback after a break when staying on over 1000m, suggesting the step up to this trip with improved fitness on her side will suit. LADY MISTICO showed promise as a 2yo and could have more to offer this term, so is best kept safe.

Selections:
#4 Miss Greenlight, #2 Treasure Hunt, #7 Fleeting, #3 Lady Mistico

Race 3
Race Summary: SIR WILLIAM made a most encouraging debut when running on between runners to finish a close-up 4th over track and trip, so could open his account with any amount of improvement expected. AUSSENKEHR finished just ahead of that rival and is likely to be on the premises once more. NIGHT TIGER improved in his second start over a similar trip to finished a staying-on 4th and ought to make his presence felt if overcoming an awkward draw. Newcomers INSIDE STORY and BOURNEMOUTH are bred to be useful and could stake a claim - watch the betting.

Selections:
#4 Sir William, #7 Aussenkehr, #1 Inside Story, #6 Bournemouth

Race 4
Race Summary: GLOBAL FORESTS deserves to get his head in front after three consecutive seconds and could be rewarded for consistency. Both GUY ALEXANDER and GLOBAL AVENUE found one better last time out and with further improvement could pose the biggest threat. QUASIMODO has given better accounts of himself in recent starts beyond sprint distances and could also make his presence felt.

Selections:
#5 Global Forests, #2 Guy Alexander, #3 Global Avenue, #7 Quasimodo

Race 5
Race Summary: Tricky. DIFFERENT FACE has maintained consistency and wouldn't be winning out of turn having slid to an attractive mark. However, she has become costly to follow and is probably worth opposing. 3yo fillies PALO QUEEN, PORQUE TE VAS and CITYSCAPE are unexposed likely improvers capable of having a say. The latter was an impressive winner of her last start and ought to be competitive. Course-and-distance winner MA BLACK runs well fresh and could represent the value in the race. JURY DUTY, APOLLO MOON and SEEKING PEACE all have earning potential too. Good race!

Selections:
#5 Ma Black, #2 Different Face, #4 Cityscape, #7 Porque Te Vas

Race 6
Race Summary: Wide open. Top-rated KEEP IT SECRET concedes weight to all but should hold his own on these terms. Last-start winner SUGAR MOUNTAIN appears the stable elect on riding arrangements but he is drawn wide and his best form is up to 1400m. Stablemate SILENT WAR is well drawn and effective over this trip, so could have his measure. THE FUTURIST and LION'S HEAD are highly regarded and capable of better than their most recent outings suggest. SHAVOUT began his Cape campaign in promising fashion and could have more to offer. VAN HUNKS was unlucky last time and could be worth backing to make amends.

Selections:
#8 Van Hunks, #2 Silent War, #11 Sugar Mountain, #4 The Futurist

Race 7
Race Summary: Listed feature dominated by Snaith runners. SOMERSET MAUGHAM was outrun by progressive TOP QUALITY over 1800m last time and renews rivalry on 3kg better terms, so should play another leading role. On that evidence, however, the latter could have even more to offer over this extended trip so could confirm superiority. THEFUTUREISBRIGHT and SALVATOR MUNDI are both more than capable on their day and complete a strong Snaith quartet. CHEWBACA and CROME YELLOW could give them most to fear. HAN SOLO is in good form but carded to run without blinkers which have improved him 17 points. Others can earn.

Selections:
#10 Top Quality, #2 Somerset Maugham, #1 Thefutureisbright, #4 Chewbaca

Race 8
Race Summary: Fascinating Graduation Plate which could produce a formline worth following. Hat-trick-seeking rivals CHARLES DICKENS and DAVE THE KING are open to any amount of improvement and either could remain unbeaten with the promise of further progress. Regally bred debut winners NARINA TROGON and ICONIC DESTINATION are also likely improvers who ought to make their presence felt. WE'RE JAMMING was the leading 2yo in the region last term and could also take his form to another level after gelding. WECANGOALLNIGHT, LE MANS and TOUGH TERRAIN add further intrigue.

Selections:
#1 Charles Dickens, #6 Dave The King, #8 We'Re Jamming, #3 Iconic Destination

Best Win: #1 HUNTING TRIP                        
Best Value Bet: #5 MA BLACK                            
Best Longshot: #5 MA BLACK

GREYVILLE


Race 1
Race Summary: SMITH AND WESSON is maturing and should be ready to open his account. ICE KINGDOM hasn't been far back and finished nearly 2 lengths in front of CAPTAIN SPIRIT and just over 2 lengths ahead of ONE IRISH ROVER, who are both looking to improve, however, on apprentice claims the first mentioned could confirm the form. KING'S SPEAR has ability but is reported in need of the run. Watch first-timer MASK ON.

Selections:
#4 Smith And Wesson, #6 Ice Kingdom, #1 Captain Spirit, #10 One Irish Rover

Race 2
Race Summary: Lightly raced SUPER SILVER needed his last run and should make a bold bid. EVENING PRIMROSE needed her last outing and will come on heaps.

ADMIRE ME, LOVE BOMB and DINDINGWE are looking for Quartet money.

Selections:
#6 Super Silver, #2 Evening Primrose, #7 Aquae Sulis, #3 Donald Mcdonald

Race 3
Race Summary: ATLANTIC CITY should be the one to beat if he sorts out his problems. PIRATE PRINCE was hampered last time and should make a race of it.

Selections:
#7 Atlantic City, #2 Pirate Prince, #8 Cup Of Magic, #4 Soul Captain

Race 4
Race Summary: After three consecutive seconds, SEA OF TEARS could get it right. REEFWAY eased in the betting on debut and wasn't disgraced - she will know more about it and should be respected.

Selections:
#2 Sea Of Tears, #3 Reefway, #7 I'Ve Got Wings, #8 Miss Dora

Race 5
Race Summary: Good race. DANILO DANILOVITCH is back on turf and could have the run of the race from a good barrier position. TEMPTING FATE disappointed somewhat last time but has ability and must be respected, TREAD SWIFTLY has a shout if doesn't give away start.

Selections:
#3 Danilo Danilovitch, #5 Tempting Fate, #4 Tread Swiftly, #2 Hawker Typhoon

Race 6
Race Summary: QUEUE WING was a touch unlucky last time but could make amends. He could double up this course and distance. GENTLEMAN'S WAY should be right there alongside on collateral form. RED SOLE is 2.5kg better than MAXIUMUS for 2.70 lengths and it could get close between them. MANHATTAN CAFE and TOM BOMBODIL are looking for minor money.

Selections:
#7 Queue Wing, #1 Gentleman's Way, #3 Red Sole, #4 Maxiumus

Race 7
Race Summary: Competitive. DONQUERARI has matured and could go in again. CUPID'S SONG disappointed last time but could make amends. BOTZ can improve more. WINTER AIR is 4kg better off with LAKE COMO for a nose defeat and should turn it around. EDDIE THE MOVER, JETAVANA and UNIQUE POWER come off maiden wins and could improve. Others are looking to place.

Selections:
#6 Donquerari, #8 Cupid's Song, #4 Botz, #1 Eddie The Mover

Race 8
Race Summary: SHANTA'S PRIDE attracted money on debut and wasn't disgraced when runner-up. She returned with a severe respiratory noise and will be a lot fitter. The one to beat. TROUBADIX is not going to Hollywood but could get into the reckoning. GLOBAL SONGSTRESS is improving and could challenge. Watch newcomers, SEA GODDESS and SAMSAI.

Selections:
#10 Shanta's Pride, #9 Global Songstress, #2 Troubadix, #3 Manic Monday

Best Win: #10 SHANTA'S PRIDE

GREYVILLE


Race 1
Race Summary: ALLAROUNDTHEWORLD has been a disappointment to date in that he is still battling in the maiden ranks. He did, however, run well when runner-up on this surface last time out. He can go one better. FIRU STAR has been a bit unreliable but also ran well enough in his latest start to suggest that a winning turn may not be far away. ULTIMATE JEWEL has been poor on the turf lately so should prefer it back on the Polytrack. COLOUR OF MONEY may also prefer the turf but is not out of it. GLOBAL OUTLOOK could still improve.

Selections:
#5 Allaroundtheworld, #3 Firu Star, #10 Global Outlook, #2 Colour Of Money

Race 2
Race Summary: ASPOESTERTJIE seems better than the last run would suggest and has a winning chance if repeating her penultimate effort. DECLARE WAR clearly needed her last run and should make vast improvement. Include her in all perms. MEREDITH GREY is improving and should be right there at the finish. MUSHARAYHA and CAPTAIN MARVEL are also capable of earning some money.

Selections:
#1 Aspoestertjie, #3 Declare War, #4 Meredith Grey, #8 Captain Marvel

Race 3
Race Summary: Trainer Carl Hewitson has his yard in fine form and VENTUROUS was a nice winner last time out. She could follow up under a seven-point penalty. BELL STARBUSTER may be at her best on the turf but can contest the finish again. SPECIAL CHARM may prefer this shorter distance and has to be considered a possible winner. TOP HONOURS has not won for some time now and is coming off a poor run. On her best form she could earn some minor money. CAPRICCIO seems to have come to a handicap mark that allows her to be competitive.

Selections:
#3 Venturous, #1 Bell Starbuster, #2 Special Charm, #7 Capriccio

Race 4
Race Summary: An open-looking race and we may have to go wide in the exotics. AISLING was seen to be a bit unlucky from a wide draw last time out and could perhaps go one better. BIRDWATCHER has been a disappointment of late but is course-and-distance suited and will be running on well at the finish. FLOWER SEASON has some fair recent form and must be considered. ROYAL KITTY and ALTO ALEX have been consistent of late and deserve respect. WINTER JOURNEY is well drawn and cannot be dismissed away easily.

Selections:
#7 Aisling, #6 Birdwatcher, #5 Flower Season, #3 Royal Kitty

Race 5
Race Summary: WHO'S THAT STAR looked an unlucky loser last time out. That was his first run on the Polytrack and if he repeats that run he can go one better. HIGHER PURPOSE was disappointing last week but has to be considered. PURPLE OPERATOR was not disgraced when fourth last time out and could be ready to strike. EDWARD LONGSHANKS is consistent and does like the Polytrack. GENERAL HANCOCK has been a disappointment of late and could prefer the turf.

Selections:
#1 Who's That Star, #5 Edward Longshanks, #4 Purple Operator, #3 Bristolbeaufighter

Race 6
Race Summary: Another tough race for punters. HAMPTON COURT was not disgraced last week and has a winning chance. LIFE GOES ON is clearly better than his last run and could bounce back. PATH TO FORTUNE bounced back to form last time out and has a winning chance. MASTER KEEKU is in good form but could prefer the turf. WE ALL CHOMIES finds it hard to win but is not out of it. UMTHOMBO WOLWAZI is coming off a solid maiden win and could be better than rated.

Selections:
#5 Hampton Court, #6 We All Chomies, #7 Umthombo Wolwazi, #1 Path To Fortune

Race 7
Race Summary: EVENTIDOR won nicely when blinkers were added last week and could follow up. BANZAI PIPELINE has not won for some time but could be suited to this course and distance. MONSIEUR CHEVELLE was reportedly coughing last time out and that run may be worth ignoring. He was a game winner of his previous start. COROMANDEL has some fair recent form and must be respected. SONJADOR is coming off a good run but his last two runs on this surface were not good.

Selections:
#5 Banzai Pipeline, #1 Eventidor, #2 Monsieur Chevelle, #3 Coromandel

Race 8
Race Summary: MARIA COROLINA is in good form and deserves another win. This course and distance clearly suits her. RAIN WEAR is clearly better than her last two runs and could contest the finish. TRUMP MY QUEEN is battling to win but could earn some money. STAR CHOICE may have needed the last run and could improve. BELL JAR and LADY MACBETH have some fair recent form and could earn some more money.

Selections:
#8 Maria Corolina, #7 Rain Wear, #1 Bell Jar, #3 Lady Macbeth

Best Win: #1 WHO'S THAT STAR                     
Best Value Bet:

TURFFONTEIN


Race 1
Race Summary: GLOBAL APPROACH has been threatening for a while but has drawn well and the track will suit. FUTUREWOLFF was runner-up in in his last two and is bred for the extra. TRIDENT KING races in new surroundings after a lay-off. He gives weight to all but has done all his best work on the poly. CAPTAIN THRONE and GREENLIGHTFORGO are looking to improve. Others are hoping for a place cheque.

Selections:
#4 Global Approach, #3 Futurewolff, #1 Trident King, #2 Captain Throne

Race 2
Race Summary: Competitive. SMELTING is a trier but cannot be trusted, however she finished ahead of TRIED AND TRUE, SKY VELOCITY and GAETANA at this track last time. GREEN BUBBLES looks to have most scope for improvement and gets the nod. VOSHAARNOOI finished ahead of fancied HERTZOGGIE last time. The latter is coupled with SOUTHERN STYLE who is not out of it.

Selections:
#5 Green Bubbles, #2 Tried And True, #1 Smelting, #6 Sky Velocity

Race 3
Race Summary: Top weighted FLYING FIRST CLASS is as honest as they come and should contest the finish, however, ZAZU is receiving 4kg and should be right there on collateral form - good race. The remaining five runners are all capable of getting into the Trifecta.

Selections:
#1 Flying First Class, #2 Zazu, #5 Summerland, #7 Crusade To Royalty

Race 4
Race Summary: BATIK is improving with racing and could open his account. SILK GARDEN hasn't been far off to date and shouldn't be far off again. SASSY is doing better and is a must for the Trifecta. LOOK for more improvement from UNAPOLOGETIC - she is ready for a big run. PINKY LEVINE comes off a break and could just need it. STREET'S AHEAD could make the frame.

Selections:
#5 Batik, #1 Silk Garden, #3 Sassy, #6 Unapologetic

Race 5
Race Summary: CLAP OF THUNDER finished way behind LORD OF LIGHT last time but was cut into and turned it up. Before that the latter finished just over a half length behind his rival but is 1.5kg worse off. It could get close. THE INKOSANA comes into the reckoning on his penultimate, having finished 2 lengths ahead of CLAP OF THUNDER, but he pulled up blowing in his last two runs. MR BODACIOUS needed his last run badly and could have a say. PRIME EXAMPLE could get into the mix.

Selections:
#1 Clap Of Thunder, #2 Lord Of Light, #3 The Inkosana, #4 Mr Bodacious

Race 6
Race Summary: Good race. PATON'S TEARS gives start but finishes off strongly. She finished 1.45 lengths in front of CRIMSON PRINCESS last time but is 1kg worse off. However, LILIANA (0.5kg worse) finished 1.50 lengths ahead of the first mentioned after having needed the outing. She should be right there. GILDED BUTTERFLY is another with winning claims. She must be included in all exotic bets. CODE ZERO finished blowing last time and could feature.

Selections:
#4 Lilliana, #1 Crimson Princess, #3 Paton's Tears, #5 Gilded Butterfly

Race 7
Race Summary: TUSCAN WINTER is a top sort and will give a run for money, however, ANFIELDS ROCKET has a tremendous turn of foot and with 8 kg less to shoulder could grab him. MATHIS should get closer to the first mentioned on 3kg better terms for 3.60 lengths when not striding out. RIDGERUNNER and SPANISH BOY could make the Quartet.

Selections:
#9 Anfields Rocket, #1 Tuscan Winter, #7 Mathis, #5 Expeditioner

Race 8
Race Summary: CHYAVANA ran on strongly after a rest and could double up this track and trip. POWER RANGER is threatening for his 2nd win and could take it. Stable companions, DROP OF TIME and KALAHARI BLUE both won on the 3rd time of asking and could go on. MESCAL, INTEGRATE, RED CARPET GIRL and WRITTEN IN STONE are more to consider for Trifectas.

Selections:
#1 Chyavana, #12 Power Ranger, #11 Kalahari Blue, #10 Written In Stone

Best Win: #4 GLOBAL APPROACH                     
Best Value Bet: #9 ANFIELDS ROCKET
