Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R95.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: EXION found no support on debut and only tired late. He can only improve. PINCH POT was rested and gelded after a good debut and if ready will make a bold bid. TILMEETH found support but never kicked on debut. He will know more about it now and sports blinkers for the first time. BARTHOLOMEUS and BOUNCING TIGGER could place. Watch newcomer ROCKPAPERSCISSORS.



#8 Exion, #12 Pinch Pot, #14 Tilmeeth, #13 Rockpaperscissors

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R88.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. ILLUSION was backed on a winning debut and will come on heaps. With a 4kg claim could go in again. CATEGORY FOUR has a wide draw to overcome but could challenge. There should be nothing to choose between MOUNT KEITH and STRIKEITLIKEAMATCH and either could take it. MASTER OF MASADA was a surprise winner last time but is improving. Others could pop up.


#2 Illusion, #4 Category Four, #1 Mount Keith, #3 Strikeitlikeamatch

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R105.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Another competitive race. IMPRESSIVE DUCHESS comes off a rest after not disgracing herself in a KZN feature and could strike fresh. ESKIMO KISSES comes off an easy maiden win after a break and could come on. CLOCK TOWER won her maiden last time but has scope for improvement. SOLAR FLARE , PONCHIELLI as well as FORTUNA DORO and stable mate OVER THE LIMIT can earn.

Race Summary: EDEN ROC was never travelling last time when losing unbeaten status but could come out fresh and resume winning ways. COCKNEY PRIDE has matured nicely and will prefer further but showed class in her KZN campaign – respect. DUBLIN QUAYS was rested and gelded after disappointing in his 2nd start – watch! Others are looking to improve.

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R88.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: BAAHIR never runs a dull race and could get away here. BRIDGE OF SPIES  and HARTLEYFOUR should finish close together on recent form and either could go in. WHAT A JOKER will prefer further but could flash up late. HOT AUGUST hasn’t been far off and could get into the mix. SNOW IN SEATTLE can never be ignored. ICE EATER has claims but is struggling for a 2nd victory.


#8 Baahir, #1 Bridge Of Spies, #2 Hartleyfour, #7 What A Joker

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R130.000, 15:55GMT+2

Race Summary: QUEEN SUPREME put a disappointing run behind her with a fluent victory. She looks one to watch against stronger and should win this. SAINTS ALIVE and VIRGINIA could renew rivalry and either could get the upper hand. MRS SIMPSON needed her last outing and will come on. Top weight ROUGE ALLURE could prove best of the rest.


#5 Queen Supreme, #4 Saints Alive, #3 Virginia, #6 Mrs Simpson

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R130.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: The big guns are returning. SOQRAT has class but carries a hefty 62kg, however, he is well treated under the conditions and should be too good for them. Stable companion BARAHIN disappointed slightly in the ‘July’ but will be fresh and running on strongly. LAKE KINNERET is one of the fittest in the field and could get into the mix. KZN visitor ROY HAD ENOUGH is no slouch.


#1 Soqrat, #2 Barahin, #10 Lake Kinneret, #3 Roy Had Enough

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R88.000, 17:05GMT+2

Race Summary: SUMMER PUDDING was supported when winning on debut and will go on. KAPAMA has been threatening for her 2nd win and must be respected here. MADDOX TUNE enjoyed the extra last time and could go on. SERENDIPITY is a trier and could get into the mix. UFO is running a lot better and could get into the frame. CHARMZ LUCK could just need it.


#1 Summer Pudding, #4 Kapama, #6 Maddox Tune, #5 Serendipity

Turffontein Inside, 12.10.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R95.000, 17:40GMT+2

Race Summary: ZODIAC PRINCESS ran well below form last time after a rest. She sports blinkers now and could get back on track. STARTING LINE is improving with racing and should be there at the finishing line. MIDNIGHT TOP could go all the way at this track. WINTERWIND and FLAMING DUCHESS will improve more over the longer trip. CHRISTMAS FLOWER is looking for the extra. BAT ORCHID can earn.


#3 Zodiac Princess, #1 Starting Line, #2 Midnight Top, #6 Winterwind
