Turffontein Preview – 21 March



Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R115.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: EHSAAN found solid support when narrowly beaten on debut and should make amends. GROBAN was under a length behind him also on debut and could make a race of it. Watch the first-timers especially JASH, KEEP SMILING and PINCH POT.



#2 Ehsaan, #3 Groban, #4 Jash, #9 Keep Smiling

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R110.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: CAPTAIN’S ALPHA returned to form last time and with blinkers back on from a good draw could take honours. THE SANDS is doing well now and needed his last outing. ONE OF OUR OWN hung in badly on the Poly last time and expect a better performance here. GIMME THE FIRE hasn’t been far off lately and could make the mix. THE RUSSIAN SAILOR and LEMON DROP SHOT could earn.


#4 Captain’s Alpha, #1 The Sands, #10 One Of Our Own, #3 Gimme The Fire

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R110.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: DESTINYS GAME is running well now and if she takes her place could open her account. Watch JAY BOMB – she was backed when 4th on debut but that was almost a year ago. SUPER FINE sports blinkers for the first time and any improvement should see her fight it out. JUST A GREETING could get into the mix being fresh.


#2 Destinys Game, #12 Jay Bomb, #4 Without Limits, #3 Super Fine

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R110.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: JACKO BOY is fancied to win before this but if she takes her place could go in here. GLITTER PATH found traffic problems last time but finished well to take 2nd – respect. NOTQUITETHEREYET is improving with racing and could get there. ANDIAMO needed her last run and could feature. EIGHTFOLDS LASS will enjoy the extra but may just need it. PETITE AIME could upset.


#2 Jacko Boy, #1 Glitter Path, #3 Notquitethereyet, #4 Andiamo

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R110.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: LASAIR needed his first run as a gelding and will come on, however, he has a wide draw to overcome. CHEVRON on the other hand jumps from pole position and could grab the advantage. MR CUDDLES races as a gelding now and could get his act together. Stable mates THE BRASS WAY and FEITAS FLYER weren’t disgraced on debut when finishing close together. DRY YOUR EYES could earn.


#2 Chevron, #1 Lasair, #6 Mr Cuddles, #13 The Brass Way

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R98.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Lightly raced SEA AIR is back over a favourable distance and should be in the shake-up. MARCH TO GLORY is doing better and could challenge. NORLAND has his problems and is drawn wide but if trouble free could lead them a merry dance. SOVEREIGN REIGN, ORAPA, OVER SHARING and MAMBO IN SEATTLE could pull it off.


#7 Sea Air, #2 March To Glory, #4 Norland, #3 Sovereign Reign

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R114.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. MYTHICAL BOLT has been knocking and could get his just reward. If stable companion PURPLE DIAMOND takes his place he rates a strong back up over the extra now. BOLD COAST and DAN THE LAD are never without a chance and must be included in all bets. DOUBLE ‘O’ EIGHT needed her last run in new surroundings and could feature. COPPER JAY and VARIMAX are never far back.


#4 Mythical Bolt, #3 Purple Diamond, #5 Bold Coast, #10 Varimax

Turffontein Inside, 21.03.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R103.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: MODJADJI has finally returned to his best track and trip and could make it 4 from 4 here. FRANKLY will also enjoy a return to this track but needs to overcome a wide draw. ILLEGAL and NO MORE WORDS are having their peak run and could get into the picture. QUEEN OF WAR, OTTAWA and ILHA DA VAR could upset the apple-cart.


#1 Modjadji, #2 Illegal, #5 Frankly, #4 No More Words
