Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R90.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. TREND MASTER is having his peak run and should make a bold bid. CREATION races as a gelding now after a long break and should relish the extra. CRAZY CHARLIE is running well and should be in the mix. BARISTA was rested after an improved performance and could make the quartet. Watch newcomers OSCAR WILDE and TEMENEE.

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R90.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: POPPYCOCK is fancied to win before this and if takes his place could make amends. KALAHARI CHROME was not striding out last time yet made good improvement over a marathon distance – respect. ROMANTIC ERA is bred for this trip and is expected to make her presence felt. MAGIC VISION needed her last outing and travels over further. VOODOO is having his 55th run and could place.


#1 Poppycock, #2 Kalahari Chrome, #6 Romantic Era, #4 Magic Vision

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R75.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: FLYING FANTASY and PERFECT LIGHT renew rivalry and on 0,5kg better for a neck defeat the latter could have her revenge. IL MONDO ran below form last time but on her penultimate run has a definite chance. RATION MY PASSION is doing a lot better and could get into the mix. GLAMOROUS SCANDAL and CRANBERRY CRUSH could get into the frame.


#2 Perfect Light, #4 Flying Fantasy, #3 Il Mondo, #10 Ration My Passion

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R85.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: DICKENS disappointed in his post-maiden when trying further. He goes over even further – if he stays will be in the shake-up. Stable mate GENTLEMAN’S WAGER only won his maiden last time but has scope for improvement. GOLD GRIFFIN is holding form and shouldn’t be far off again. FRENCH LEAVE ran no kind of race last time but has a chance on his penultimate. FLAME FELLA can earn.


#3 Dickens, #4 Gold Griffin, #2 French Leave, #11 Kamakura

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R90.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Improving WAQAAS beat CAPTAIN FLYNT by a short head recently and is 1 kg worse off. SUPA MUFTI claims 3kg and has a chance on collateral form. MARSHALL FOCH comes off a rest and is back over a preferred mile. Top weight TOKYO DRIFT can never be ignored for money. Others looking for minor money.


#8 Waqaas, #5 Captain Flynt, #14 Supa Mufti, #3 Marshall Foch

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R98.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Good future indicator race. SPERO OPTIMA won with consummate ease when tried over further. He drops to a mile but could be up to it. INFORMATIVE is no slouch and will be at peak fitness – respect. FROSTED STEEL is well above average and should have no problem over the mile. Stable companion IN CAHOOTS is having his 3rd run after a rest and could take home a cheque.


#6 Spero Optima, #5 Informative, #8 Frosted Steel, #4 Promiseofamaster

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R90.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. OCEAN CITY is speedy and could get away from them at this track. Stable companion CASUAL WEAR is not out of it. ARIKEL will be catching late and could get up. MADEMOISELLE is holding form and if ready after a rest could win it. SOUL OF WIT sports blinkers now and any improvement could see her take honours. FICTITIOUS could take home a cheque.


#5 Ocean City, #6 Arikel, #4 Mademoiselle, #2 Soul Of Wit

Turffontein Inside, 07.11.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R90.000, 17:20GMT+2

Race Summary: LEOPOLD won on the 2nd time of asking. He has more to offer but a wide draw to overcome. GEMCUTTER on the other hand has pole position and could get away. KING OF THE DELTA is honest and can never be ignored. PERFECTLY PUTT has scope for improvement but could prefer further. ICE EATER took a long time for his 2nd win and to go in again could be difficult.
