Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R100.000, 12:55GMT+2

Selections:
#15 Single Red Rose, #12 Explosive Beauty, #6 Gail Force, #5 Royal View

Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R100.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: HEROIC DEED has easily the best form here, but returns from 6 months off. Will still take some beating, despite Kennedy getting off. Drier first timer DARKEST DAWN showed good pace in his trial. QUATRO FIVE SIX made big improvement last time and needs to back it up. FERGIE'S ROCK, LIVINGLAVIDALOCA, andAVRO LANCASTER all need to be considered.

#10 Heroic Deed, #13 Darkest Dawn, #16 Quatro Five Six, #5 Livinglavidaloca

Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R100.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: CRIME SCENE has bumped a good one in her last two Gauteng outings, and may well get it right here. JACKSON WELLS looks the main danger after a smart debut.

SLIEVANORRA can build on a good debut, while first timers EUREKA MOMENT and ROY'S BANGLE both showed pace in their trials.

Selections:
#2 Crime Scene, #4 Jackson Wells, #12 At Your Request, #15 Slievanorra

Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R120.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: One to beat PROMISE is far better than her last, and has won three of four with Kennedy. LIQUID IRISH goes from strength to strength and appears the main danger. WINTER SUN is a talented thee-year-old, and has a shout. ON THE DOUBLE has a chance with low mass, but makes her course debut. ETERNAL WORDS and MASTER KEYS both have claims in a strong form race.

Selections:
#6 Promise, #5 Liquid Irish, #3 On The Double, #2 Winter Sun

Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R150.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: GIMME PEACE has kicked on stoutly to win his last three, and is the one to beat again. NOBLE JOSHUA has a perfect record over course and distance though, and is a serious danger. VICTORIOUS MAN, FORTHELASTTIME, and THE MASTER are others who can put in a challenge.

Selections:
#8 Gimme Peace, #12 Noble Joshua, #1 Victorious Man, #3 Forthelastime

Race 7, Gallops, 1950m, Turf, R150.000, 15:55GMT+2

Race Summary: WHITE LIGHTNING is long overdue a second win, and won't run on too late with Marcus up. Looks tough to beat. JACK OF HEARTS will have his supporters, and has won both course and distance outings. WEALTHY is also a course specialist, and can't be ignored. PATHS OF VICTORY is in top form, but now has more to do at the weights.

Selections:
#6 White Lightning, #5 Jack Of Hearts, #10 Wealthy, #9 Paths Of Victory

Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R150.000, 16:35GMT+2

Selections:
#5 Goliath Heron, #6 So Var, #12 Graduate, #9 Master Of Illusion

Race 9, Gallops, 1750m, Turf, R100.000, 17:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Looks a four horse war. Four-year-old KING JULIAN is yet to miss the places, and will appreciate the extra. TWICE GOLDEN has proved he gets the trip, and has two good recent seconds. WHATEVERITTAKES finished well last time, and Kennedy rides again. A speculative first choice would be the other Van Zyl runner CARBON FIBRE however.

Selections:
#14 Carbon Fibre, #4 King Julian, #11 Twice Golden, #8 Whateverittakes

Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R90.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: WYLIE WENCH found support on debut but was beaten by inexperience. She should atone. BLESSED RAIN comes off a long break but has ability - respect money. MAY QUEEN ran a bit below form last time and could get into the mix. MARMALADE CAT will benefit from the 4kg claim. MIDNIGHT LIGHTS could make the frame. She is coupled with debutante GIMME SHIMMY - watch!

Selections:
#15 Wylie Wench, #1 Blessed Rain, #2 May Queen, #3 Marmalade Cat

Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R90.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R90.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: VICTORIA PAIGE has her come-back run and it should be no more than an exercise gallop on class. SCENT OF EVENING never got into it last time but is clearly 2nd best on form. WESTWING BELTER could make the trifecta. Others will battle.

Selections:
#1 Victoria Paige, #4 Scent Of Evening, #5 Westwing Belter, #3 Bid Before Sunset

Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R100.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Good competitive handicap for three-year-olds. YOUR PACE OR MINE has been gelded and can make more improvement. LEOPOLD was close up last time and will also get better as he matures.

#2 Your Pace Or Mine, #4 Leopold, #1 Indy Go, #3 Vaseem

Race 6, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race 7, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R100.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Good contest. SKIMINAC is holding form and won his only try this trip. He beat BEFORE NOON (2kg better) by 1 length and it could go either way. MASTER AND MAN is honest and could turn it around with AT HAND on 2kg better for 1,25 lengths. MAJOR RETURN has a wide draw but could get across early. KNIGHT OWL and SNORTING BULL are not out of the equation.

Selections:
#4 Before Noon, #2 Skiminac, #6 Master And Man, #5 At Hand

Race 8, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R90.000, 17:20GMT+2
