Race Summary: AIRMAN ans stable companion BLACK TIE are both trying the sand and have notmade the trip from Gauteng for nothing. CARIBBEAN NIGHT is one of three newcomers for trainer Jarett Rugg and must be watched. RED WOLF could improve on this surface. Stable companion CODE BLACK made late progress last week andhas a winning chance. SHE CAN DANCE can do better than what she did recently

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Sand, R66.000, 12:50GMT+2

Race Summary: CHARTER JET has done really well of late and has every chance of making it a hat-trick of wins. PHIL’S POWER may be better over a bit further but does have a winning chance. TIME TO GREAT won well last time out and deserves respect from a good draw. GLOBAL PURSUIT was a bit disappointing last time out but can go close. TAKATUL needs to do more to win but might place.


#1 Charter Jet, #2 Phil’s Power, #4 Time To Be Great, #5 Global Pursuit

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Sand, R61.000, 13:25GMT+2

Race Summary: DANCING FOR RAIN has been touched off in both her recent runs. She did try blinkers last time out which did not work. She is capable of winning over this longer distance. SERAPHIC is holding form and could finish in the money once again. SOUTHERN DYNASTY returns from a break in which she changed trainers and she could improve. PROFLIGATE can place. OUR MOTHERLAND can improve.

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Sand, R61.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: A very weak field. CASEY BOY is improving and could win a race like this. CENSORIOUS could prefer this longer distance. CASABLANCA KID improved last time out and has a winning chance. SPACE WARRIOR is well drawn. He has been unreliable but is clearly not out of it. MAX MOCHA could earn some minor money. DYLAN’S STAR is drawn wide but could play a minor role if at best.


#1 Casey Boy, #3 Casablanca Kid, #4 Space Warrior, #8 Dylan’s Star

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Sand, R51.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: NOW AND FOREVER returns to the track of his only win so must be considered.CUTTING EDGE returned to his best form with a good win last week and must be considered. BE THE RIGHT is holding form and from a good draw should be concerned with the finish. FLEXIBLE FUGITIVE took a long time to win a race but then followed up and won again so must be considered. SILVAN SAINT can win.

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1800m, Sand, R52.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: EUAN’ ME probably needs to do more to win but could play a minor role. BONFILIA is clearly unreliable but on her best form she could win a race like this. TROPICAL PUNCH is capable of better than her last two runs would suggest. HURRICANE LASS returns from a lengthy break and has had a stable change. FLEUR DU CAP may have just needed her last run and can go close in this lineup


#6 Fleur Du Cap, #8 Vintage Tune, #11 Just Royal Blue, #1 Euan’ Me

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2200m, Sand, R77.000, 15:40GMT+2

Race Summary: FIRST SEA LORD has not been at his best in his recent starts but is capableof causing an upset. WARRIOR’S STONE is having a really good year and has already won three times and do not be surprised if he wins this as well. ASSISTED TAKE OFF returns from a break in which he was gelded. PADDINGTON probably found the distance too short last time and will do a lot better this trip.


#4 Paddington, #2 Warrior’s Stone, #1 First Sea Lord, #3 Assisted Take Off

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Sand, R77.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: TIMKAT is probably at his very best over a bit further but has won over this distance and should fight out the finish. EASY TO PLEASE returns from a lengthy break but does have some ability. TOP SALUTE is well weighted based on her merit-rating but is probably at her best over a bit further. OUR MOON SHADOW is course and distance suited and might be hard to beat this time.


#5 Our Moon Shadow, #1 Timkat, #3 Roquebrune, #4 Top Salute

Flamingo Park, 01.07.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Sand, R47.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: ELEGANT GENERAL returns from a break and a change of trainer. Watch the betting on him as he can improve. LONDON KNIGHT should improve on his local debut. LE TIGRE is in good form and can contest the finish. BREACH OF TRUST showed good improvement last time out and must be considered. WINDCHEATER dropsin distance but is not out of it. Respect WAITINGFORTONIGHT as well.


#4 Le Tigre, #9 Breach Of Trust, #10 Windcheater, #2 Elegant General
