Turffontein Preview – 12 September


Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 12:35GMT+2

Race Summary: READYSETGLO is overdue a win and could get her just reward after 3 consecutive seconds. CLIFTON COUGAR was quietly fancied on debut and will come on with the experience. THANDEKHILE found no support on debut but ran on nicely. She could turn it around with OCEAN’S PRIDE. ROCK ME TWICE will relish the extra but has a wide draw to overcome. Watch the first-timers.

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Interesting. MR MOGAMBO has been close up in both starts but is coupled with first-timer RIVERSTOWN who could be stable elect. Watch the betting. VIPER JET who finished 0,5kg ahead of MR MOGAMBO when on debut will come on heaps. ORCHID STREET has never been far off to date but has a wide draw to contend with. Others looking for minor money.

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R112.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: BIEN VENUE runs well here and if blinkers have no adverse effect should go close. ROLL OF DRUMS needed his first run as a gelding and will come on heaps. EHSAAN races as a gelding for the first time and any improvement could see him take honours. LONE SURVIVOR is running well and could feature again. KINGS ARCHER, STEAK AND ALE and PURPLE DIAMOND could upset the apple-cart.

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R88.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: MARSHALL made heavy weather of winning on debut but will relish the mile and could be anything. PELICAN BAY finished runner-up in his last 2 and should contest the finish. ROCKY PATH wasn’t far behind him last time and could feature again. RESPONSIBLE was never travelling last time but can do better. VARTANIUM won his maiden on the Poly last time but claims 4kg and can earn


#2 Marshall, #7 Pelican Bay, #6 Rocky Path, #4 Responsible

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R60.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: CATEGORY FOUR has come well and the mile trip should now be perfect. Stable companion PRINCE JORDAN has a chance if left alone till late. WHAT A JOKER has a good finish and should challenge late. SLEEPINSEATTLE needs to keep galloping over the last 200m. TO THE REGIMENT and REVELATION look best of the rest.


#2 Category Four, #3 What A Joker, #6 Sleepinseattle, #1 Prince Jordan

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R100.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: STAR OF GIBRALTAR comes off a maiden win. She beat BOLD ELLIE (5kg better off) by nearly 4 lengths but the maiden has more to come. Heavy weights ARTEMISIA and PONCHIELLI claim 4kg which could give them the edge here. CHOUETTE wasn’t disgraced in her post-maiden but drops down in trip. KIRKCONNEL LASS will be catching late. FICTICIOUS could poach a winning lead.


#7 Ficticious, #4 Star Of Gibraltar, #10 Bold Ellie, #5 Kirkconnel Lass

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R122.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: EIGHTFOLDS LASS is bang in form and a hat-trick is on the cards. MY DREAM CHASER has ability and found problems in her last run – watch for improvement. PILGRIM’S PROGRESS could turn it around with strong front runner RABIA THE REBEL (1kg worse off). CHARIOT OF GOLD has ability and with PRETTY BALLERINA make up the short list.


#8 Eightfolds Lass, #6 My Dream Chaser, #2 Pilgrim’s Progress, #1 Chariot Of Gold

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R88.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: BIG MYTH likes to do it the hard way and could get away on the Inside Track. PICCADILLY SQUARE is holding form and should give another honest showing. RATION MY PASSION found support at long odds when winning well last time and could go in again. MY ELUSIVE showed a form return last time and warrants respect. SERENDIPITY could get into the reckoning. ALL I GOT could pop up.


#1 Big Myth, #3 Piccadilly Square, #12 Ration My Passion, #5 Serendipity

Turffontein Inside, 12.09.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R95.000, 17:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive final event. TARTAN DANCER is improving with racing and the extra should suit. TWICE AS SPECIAL has been running close up and could get her just reward. VARQUERA has been costly to follow but could make amends. WILEY KIM enjoyed the extra last time and the little extra should suit. HOPE FOR MILLIONS and THEA MARIA could get into the mix.


#9 Tartan Dancer, #8 Twice As Special, #1 Varquera, #11 Wiley Kim
