Durbanville Preview, September 21



Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1250m, Turf, R80.000, 14:00GMT+2

Race Summary: KILINDINI caught the eye when just missing out on debut over a similar tripand in what was a hot maiden. He is bred to be better over further but willbe wiser to the task now and has been found an ideal opportunity to open his account. QUINTAY, CAPTAIN ELLIODOR and STOPALLTHECLOCKS have shown enough to pose a threat but have all been drawn wide. Watch the betting on THE CAMBO



#9 Kilindini, #13 Stopalltheclocks, #3 Quintay, #14 The Cambo

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R110.000, 14:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Frontrunners SPECTRA FORCE and FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT will ensure an honest tempo. The latter is distance suited and should strip fitter, so makes more appeal. Stable companion GREEN JACKET is unexposed over this trip and could have a say in his peak outing, but riding arrangements suggest preference is for highly rated Frankel colt GENERAL FRANCO who could be worth following…


#4 General Franco, #3 Frank Lloyd Wright, #1 Meraki, #2 Green Jacket

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1250m, Turf, R80.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive maiden. Both POINT OF SALE and LILAC SENSATION have been beatenodds-on favourites at this level but could make amends here so are worth another chance. The former acquitted herself well in a subsequent 2yo feature and on the strength of that form is preferred. NOBLE RHYTHM has the form to pose a threat if overcoming a wide gate. Respect returning CARIBBEAN SUNSET.


#3 Point Of Sale, #11 Noble Rhythm, #10 Lilac Sensation, #6 Caribbean Sunset

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R80.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Well-bred FOLLOW THE STAR is highly thought of and confirmed her promise when getting going late on debut behind an impressive winning newcomer. She would have come on appreciably from that outing so will be hard to hold out stepping up to a distance which should suit. HALLIBERRY and MAYFERN have run well over this trip and look the likely dangers.


#8 Follow The Star, #5 Halliberry, #6 Mayfern, #10 Possibility

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R83.000, 16:20GMT+2

Race Summary: A race which could be dominated by the improving 3yo brigade. SILVER HOST and VIVA RIO opened their accounts when trying this trip for the first time and should have more to offer. BAG OF TRICKS was not disgraced on handicap debut but was behind a rival who SIR MICHAEL easily beat when shedding his maiden tag. The latter is open to any amount of improvement after a break!`


#5 Sir Michael, #12 Silver Host, #8 Viva Rio, #1 Silver League

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1250m, Turf, R96.000, 16:55GMT+2

Race Summary: CLOUDED HILL has been consistent of late, albeit over further, and appears the pick of the Snaith-trained coupling on riding arrangements. However, a return to sprinting isn’t sure to suit so it could be worth taking him on with distance-suited duo NASTY HARRY and stable companion MASTER VARGUS. Debut winner ARCTIC DRIFT could be anything and DALIBHUNGA must be respected too.


#2 Nasty Harry, #6 Mister Vargus, #1 Clouded Hill, #3 Dalibhunga

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R96.000, 17:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Debut winner RILLE, highly rated feature-race scorer AMY JOHNSON as well asdistance-suited ELUSIVE FLIGHT are all above-average fillies with bright futures but will be tested here. VOMANDLA was returning from a break when getting the better of ROCKET GIRL and FAYE in a stronger contest over track and trip last time and could defy the weight turnaround by following up. Tricky!


#1 Vomandla, #5 Faye, #3 Rocket Girl, #7 Amy Johnson

Durbanville, 21.09.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 18:10GMT+2

Race Summary: TRACK ATTACK showed a professional attitude in a Barrier Trial on the Poly and would have come on appreciably since. He is bred to be special and could be up to making a winning debut if not too green – betting will be a guide. AQUA BOLT was backed on debut and caught the eye once the penny had dropped. He will be wiser to the task, though the same applies to MYHOPESANDDREAMS


#12 Track Attack, #5 Aqua Bolt, #7 Myhopesanddreams, #9 Pacific Rim
