Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1900m, Turf, R110.000, 12:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Racing enthusiasts will be congregating where ever they can to get their TAB bets on. It is Gold Cup day and more life changing payouts expected. Unbeaten ALIBI GUY could start things off nicely for his followers. He has been enjoying more galloping tracks though. SHANGO won after jumping from a wide draw. He has more to come.

Greyville Polytrack, 27.07.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R112.000, 12:35GMT+2

Race Summary: CAT DADDY has run two good ones in a row. He was second on the poly making big improvement on his previous run on the synthetic. MR GREENLIGHT ran a cracker just behind him in his first run after rest and gelding. KAPEN PRIDE is knocking at the door but has to give weight to most. THRONG ran a most encouraging race on the poly and then confirmed on turf. HOLY LAND can upset.


#7 Cat Daddy, #9 Mr Greenlight, #2 Kapen Pride, #12 Throng

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R300.000, 13:15GMT+2

Race Summary: The Place Accumulator saves the day for many – be sure to play. MAIDENS PRAYER was second to a subsequent Grade 2 winner last time and can also frank that form if taking to the track. YESSIRICANBOOGIE’s Grade 1 4th must give her a big say in this race. She must improve on her previous race here. MARY O won a nice race. SCARLET TIGER and POINT OF SALE can show more. More in it.


#4 Maidens Prayer, #14 Yessiricanboogie, #5 Mary O, #10 Scarlet Tiger

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R300.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Try and get a piece of the Pick 6 – should be a great payout. The first leg is looking tough and it could pay to go wide. AFRICAN WARRIOR has fantastic Greyville form but jumps from a tough draw. DE LA CRUZ brings strong Highveld form but he is trying the turn first time. SARAH can’t be faulted while fellow filly SPRING BREAK is fast early. SHARE HOLDER could be anything.


#10 Share Holder, #2 African Warrior, #5 De La Cruz, #12 Sarah

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R750.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: BIG POOL expected for Jackpot of Grade 1s. GABOR ran a superb race in a Grade 2 from a wide draw and should have every chance here. She is bred to enjoy the trip. COCKNEY PRIDE won that Grade 2 on her track debut and can only improve. But has drawn wide. MILL QUEEN can’t be faulted-try to get away. JACK’S BIRD, CASTELLANO, WHAT YOU ARE and SWEPT OFF MY FEET-more can improve.


#4 Gabor, #3 Cockney Pride, #9 Mill Queen, #6 Jack’s Bird

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R750.000, 15:15GMT+2

Race Summary: EDEN ROC is an incredible talent having won at three different tracks and last time he won a Grade 2 with tenacity. Stable mate PUTONTHEREDLIGHT impressed in that race as well but has drawn wide today-must respect. DOUBLE ALLIANCE suffered interference in the Langerman – can only improve. GOT THE GREENLIGHT, LIBERTY HALL, PROMISEOFAMASTER and KAYDENS PRIDE can threaten.


#2 Eden Roc, #11 Putontheredlight, #1 Double Alliance, #5 Got The Greenlight

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 3200m, Turf, R1.250.000, 16:20GMT+2

Race Summary: A South African favourite – The eLan Gold Cup – get your bets on! ROY HAD ENOUGH ran a smashing race in the ‘July’ and could carry his big weight to victory here. SHENANIGANS and stable mate LIEGE have both done really well at Greyville recently and could time their runs perfectly again. GIMME ONE NIGHT will be at his peak and could complete his mission. Many can upset!


#1 Roy Had Enough, #9 Shenanigans, #11 Gimme One Night, #8 Liege

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R1.000.000, 17:00GMT+2

Race Summary: KASIMIR could be heading for the best sprinter title in the up coming Equus Awards especially if he does well here. He prepped nicely and can bag another Grade 1. BOLD RESPECT is speedy and could be hard to peg back. Filly CELTIC SEA has been amazing. If she doesn’t mind the drop in trip can threaten. Juvenile FROSTED GOLD is worth watching. CHIMICHURI RUN has top credentials


#1 Kasimir, #2 Bold Respect, #13 Celtic Sea, #14 Frosted Gold

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R1.000.000, 17:45GMT+2

Race Summary: GREAT RACE! CIRILLO had RAINBOW BRIDGE behind him when second to subsequent dual ‘July’ winner Do It Again and was recently beaten by BUFFALO BILL CODY. All three run here and RAINBOW BRIDGE who only just failed in the July could show them who’s boss. BUFFALO BILL CODY could be a star in the making. SOQRAT, UNDERCOVER AGENT, EYES WIDE OPEN and TWIST OF FATE add to it.


#1 Rainbow Bridge, #3 Buffalo Bill Cody, #8 Cirillo, #9 Soqrat

Greyville, 27.07.2019, Race 10, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R400.000, 18:25GMT+2

Race Summary: The Gold Bracelet promises a dazzling affair. MIYABI GOLD and CAMPHORATUS were absolutely amazing in the Vodacom Durban July and can fight it out here.They need to get past SILVANO’S PRIDE who went start to finish to win the Grade 1 Woolavington. LADY IN BLACK is a lot better than her last few and blinkers may see her in the firing line again. ROY’S RIVIERA has a say at best.


#2 Silvano’s Pride, #3 Miyabi Gold, #1 Camphoratus, #5 Lady In Black

Greyville Polytrack, 27.07.2019, Race 11, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R150.000, 19:05GMT+2

Race Summary: SILVER MAPLE was most unlucky not to win on ‘July’ day. He went up a point in merit ratings but has the best of the draw and if takes to poly should be a massive runner. DUKE OF SPIN showed form after gelding and should relish the trip. MASTAGAMBIT won a thriller in his second run after rest and will be at a peak. Stable mate PRICELESS RULER is unbeaten in three on the poly.


#7 Silver Maple, #11 Duke Of Spin, #12 Mastagambit, #10 Priceless Ruler

Greyville Polytrack, 27.07.2019, Race 12, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R150.000, 19:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Quartet players may get a wholesome reward here as it is wide open. STATE TROOPER has shown talent and on best runs looks well weighted in this. He hasa decent draw and could relish the poly. FILIPPO could get a clearer run this time and would rate a fair chance if he does. But ISCA has drawn better and could give him trouble again. SUNSET EYES, BASILIUS and more in it.


#10 State Trooper, #5 Filippo, #9 Isca, #3 Sunset Eyes

Best Win: #1 KASIMIR

Best Value Bet: #1 ROY HAD ENOUGH

Best Longshot: #1 ROY HAD ENOUGH
