Fairview, 30.08.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R74.000, 12:05GMT+2

Race Summary: CAPTAIN CARLOS has had many unsuccessful attempts at winning a race. He might earn some minor money. MIO VITO is another struggling to win but could earn some minor money. THOMAS SHELBY makes his local debut. It is a bit surprising that stable jockey Chase Maujean is aboard APOLLO ROCK who only found one better last time out. Watch the betting on AQUA BOLT and ROYAL ELITE.

Race Summary: WINTER ORCHID is battling to win but could earn some minor money. EFFORT returns from a break. Her last run was disappointing. ASCENDING HEIGHTS makes her debut for a strong jockey and trainer combination. BEYOND TEMTATION was slow and green on debut so could be smarter this time. GLORY DAYS was beatenby a decent sort on debut. She was well clear of third and fourth that day.

Race Summary: SHOOTING STAR is holding form and in this weak field he should go close to winning. BENEVOLENCE tends to lack a finish but could play a minor role. LOST MONARCH steps up in distance and could improve. BOLD LINNGARI and BUZZ WORD were a bit disappointing last time out but could go close in this line-up.  GAELIC STORM disappointed last time out but did better before that.

Race Summary: FALCON ROCK has been in good form winning two of his last three starts but does have a tougher task under top-weight. DEEPSTON returns from a break buthas not made the trip from the Western Cape for nothing and he must be considered.

Race Summary: RINYAMI is improving and won nicely last time out. LEADMAN likes this course and distance and should run well in this line-up. SUNDAY FALLS is holding his form and should fight out the finish yet again. MIO GRANDE is coming offan easy win but does meet stronger this time.

Race Summary: UNION JACK has been smashing of late and is looking for a hat-trick of wins. It is going to be tough for him under 62kgs. ROYAL ARMOUR was not disgraced when runner-up on his local debut and does have Richard Fourie in the irons. THE HIGHWAY MAN is a bit unreliable but is talented when in the mood. LETS PLAY BALL has been doing very well on the Polytrack but is back on the turf


#8 Vikram, #9 Ben-Hur, #1 Union Jack, #10 Paper Town

Fairview, 30.08.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R93.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: OUTLANDOS D’AMOUR makes her local debut and the Alan Greef yard remain in good form. Stable companion DAME COMMANDER has won three of her last 4 starts and must be considered. DANCING IN SEATTLE is capable of a storming finish and can win again. WATSONIA is capable of better than what she showed last time. RACINE has made the trip from Cape Town so must be considered,


#3 Dancing In Seattle, #2 Dame Commander, #11 Western Angel, #8 Racine

Fairview, 30.08.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R69.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: AEMILIANO could appreciate going back in distance and must be considered. SELF ASSURED won well on debut but did not repeat it over further last time out. He is back to his winning distance but now needs to prove himself on the grass. FOR LUCK SAKE could earn some money. PRINCESS BLITZ is very speedy and can go close. ESCAPE TO VEGAS and NOBLE DUKE both have a winning chance.


#2 Self Assured, #4 Princess Blitz, #1 Aemiliano, #15 Noble Duke
