Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R60.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: SNOW IN SEATTLE was given a confident ride last time when beating HOT AUGUST (1,5kg better) by 0,75 lengths with PEARL OF SIBERIA (7kg better) a further 2 lengths adrift. It could be an interesting finish. LITHUANIAN’S DREAM is holding form and could join the fight for honours. ICE EATER could make the quartet.

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R88.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: PICCADILLY SQUARE has the most consistent form of those that have raced and should give another good effort. FULL FORCE kept on galloping for an easy maiden victory when sporting blinkers last time and could repeat. COUNTESS TRENTON showed marked improvement last time and warrants respect. PLUM FIELD could improve in her new surroundings. BURINDI could win if confirms latest.


#6 Full Force, #2 Piccadilly Square, #5 Countess Trenton, #3 Seneca Falls

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R94.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: PERFECT LIGHT beat THERECANBEONLYONE when opening her account but over the longer distance and 2,5kg difference the positions could be turned around. SEEKING GOLD has run well at this track and could get into the action. CRANBERRY CRUSH is capable but needs to be in the right mood. IL MONDO needs to confirm her last effort. Others need to do better.


#9 Therecanbeonlyone, #4 Perfect Light, #3 Seeking Gold, #2 Cranberry Crush

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R105.000, 14:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Pace could be the decider in a small field. SNORTING BULL has been in the money in all marathon distances and should again be in the shake up. BEFORE NOON is in form and won well over a marathon trip last time – looking for a hat-trick. FACT stays well and could get into the fight for honours. MASTER AND MAN is holding form and could feature. FLAME FELLA could make the frame.


#1 Snorting Bull, #3 Fact, #2 Before Noon, #4 Master And Man

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R100.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: TALLINN won when backed on debut. He is looking for this extra and could go in again. NO MORE WORDS found traffic problems but got up to win. She was just in front of KAPAMA, BID BEFORE SUNSET, WALNUT DASH and STARLIGHT EXPRESS and could confirm. Stable mates COLOUR OF LIGHT and OVER THE LIMIT as well as LITTLEWOOD could get into the money.


#10 Tallinn, #8 No More Words, #1 Colour Of Light, #11 Kapama

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R88.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: ARMSTRONG should be at peak fitness now and despite the worst of the draws could grab them late. PRINCE JORDAN loves it here and could improve his stats. HIDDEN AGENDA races before this and with 4kg off his back could feature. BAAHIR could get first run from a good draw and S’Manga could keep her going. WESTERN OASIS and stable companion MELCHIZEDEK could earn.


#2 Armstrong, #4 Prince Jordan, #1 Hidden Agenda, #7 Baahir

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R75.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: A moderate line up. WIJDAAN enjoyed the extra last time and if she takes her place could take honours. MIDNIGHT LIGHTS disappointed when backed in her last start but could prefer the extra here. KISUMU finds problems but if things go her way could win it. NOTQUITETHEREYET ran below form in her last 2 but could get back on track. Others looking for minor money.


#1 Wijdaan, #7 Midnight Lights, #5 Kisumu, #2 Notquitethereyet

Turffontein Inside, 05.09.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R75.000, 17:25GMT+2

Race Summary: SEGONTIUM looks the one to beat. He has been threatening from day one and should relish this trip. THE RIDDLER is on the up and could feature from a good draw. VARTANIUM races in blinkers before this – watch the form. He is coupled with PROPOSITION who hasn’t been far back recently. CRAZY CHARLIE appears moody but it could be his day. RACING MAN and FOLLOW MY PATH can place.


#1 Segontium, #3 The Riddler, #2 Vartanium, #5 Crazy Charlie

Best Win: #10 TALLINN
