Turffontein Preview – 26 October



Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R95.000, 12:30GMT+2

Race Summary: GREY POWER should be at peak fitness as a gelding and could grab them late. EPPAGILIA needed his first run as a gelding but WILLO’THEWISP was just behind him on debut and could make up the lee-way. INSIDE POLITICS could get into the mix while stable mate AFRICAN SAVANNA is looking to improve. ABLE SURPRISE can improve as a gelding. Watch newcomer SPANISH BOY.



#4 Grey Power, #3 Eppagilia, #12 Willo’Thewisp, #10 Spanish Boy

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R95.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: CAIRON nearly led all the way on debut behind useful Stormy Winter and from a decent draw could be hard to peg back. G I JOE also failed narrowly on debut as a gelding and should be right there. OYSTER KING has been threatening and should be involved in the finish. SAVIOUR found support when disappointing on debut and could be looking for the extra. KOOL BAIKAL could feature.


#5 Cairon, #1 G I Joe, #2 Oyster King, #11 Saviour

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R112.000, 13:45GMT+2

Race Summary: AURELIA COTTA hasn’t won in ages but the rest has proved beneficial and could resume winning ways, this her peak run. EIGHTFOLDS LASS has finished runner-up in all 3 runs at this track. She is as honest as they come and could go one better. FIFE did well after a rest last time and could get into the picture. Stable mates MOROCCAN FLAME and EVENING BELL are capable – watch!


#1 Aurelia Cotta, #2 Eightfolds Lass, #6 Fife, #4 Moroccan Flame

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R88.000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: R1 MILLION PICK 6 CARRYOVER! Estimated pool R6 MILLION! ATOMIC BLONDE looks likely to set the pace followed by THE BOSBOK but ROCKY PATH won’t let them get too far ahead and the 3 will try get away. If so, TOUGH CHOICE will be allowed to settle early and grab them late. Include HIT FOR SIX, FESTIVE LINNGARI, MIGHTY VALDIE, WOODLAND’S FOREST, KAMAKURA and SO LONG SPRING.


#10 Tough Choice, #5 Atomic Blonde, #2 The Bosbok, #6 Rocky Path

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R105.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: GIN FIZZ looks a penalty kick here with no goalkeeper to defend. She will be at restricted odds but rates a banker bet in the Pick 6 and Jackpot. GREEN TOP has earlier form but needs to find it. AGAINST THE GRAIN and stable mate URBAN ROCK as well as TIGER’S ROCK are looking for trifecta money.


#7 Gin Fizz, #6 Green Top, #2 Against The Grain, #5 Tiger’s Rock

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R100.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: AFRICAN ROCK is holding top form and looking for win number 4 in under 4 months, however, stable companion PIDGEON ROCK has come well and will relish the extra – respect. CATEGORY FOUR can accelerate if left alone early on. POP ICON won easily on debut as a gelding and can go on, however, Striker appears to have opted for 3rd stable inmate RIGA D’ORA. Others can earn.


#3 Pidgeon Rock, #2 African Rock, #5 Category Four, #8 Pop Icon

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R122.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: CULTURE TRIP has matured nicely and is out to make it 4 from 4 this track including a hat-tick bid here. Stable companion FLASH BURN will do his best to end the sequence. He needed his last run and could poach a winning lead. KINGS ARCHER claims 4kg and could get into the action. LONE SURVIVOR is better than his last run and could get into the mix. PUNTA CANA could feature.


#4 Culture Trip, #3 Flash Burn, #8 Kings Archer, #2 Lone Survivor

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R100.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: MARYGOLD found support on debut when showing inexperience, however, she got up to snatch victory. She will come on. QUERARI FERRARI found support at long odds on debut and showed all heart to flash up and win. She can only improve. GOLDEN SPIRAL is in top form and has a hat-trick chance. KAPAMA has been running close up and shouldn’t be far off again. SEATTLE TANGO can earn.


#4 Marygold, #10 Querari Ferrari, #11 Kapama, #6 Golden Spiral

Turffontein Inside, 26.10.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R100.000, 17:20GMT+2

Race Summary: BLACK FERRARI has the speed to overcome the draw and 1000m will suit her ideally, however, Muzi appears to have opted for stable companion BEFORE THE DAWN. The latter finished behind ARIKEL (needed the run) last time could battle to reverse it. CLAREMORRIS was narrowly beaten by NYMERIA recently but is 2kg better off. PHILLYDELPHIA has a chance if settles. More can win.


#5 Black Ferrari, #3 Arikel, #2 Before The Dawn, #7 Claremorris

Best Win: #7 GIN FIZZ

Best Value Bet: #10 TOUGH CHOICE
