Race Summary: There are well bred newcomers who if fancied could prove superior. Watch ACORN ALLEY and SOVEREIGNTY. AZTEC wasn’t disgraced on debut and will have no problem with the extra. TEMENEE was all at sea on debut and will know more about it now. THANDEKHILE, SAMOA and OCEAN’S PRIDE have wide draws but could place. Look for improvement from DEBBIE GOES WEST.

VIPER JET races as a gelding now and must be respectedfrom a good draw. DOGLIOTTI comes off a rest and shouldn’t be far off. AFRAAD has a wide draw but could place. Watch newcomer ATTENTIVE.

Race Summary: TUSCAN LIGHT never got into it last time but a rest could be what was needed. Stable mate AMANDLA could get into the frame. BELLAGIO KING is improving with racing and won’t go down without a fight. SHANE is doing better and could get into the mix. BLUE FLUTE and MAGIC VISION are looking for quartet money. Watch first-timer IDEAL MAN.

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1160m, Turf, R200.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: TRUE TO LIFE is on the up and will make her presence felt. She receives 5,5kg from SARAH and 7kg from top weight GREEN PLAINS which could tilt things in her favour. However, the former is holding form and should be competitive. POOL PARTY loves this course and distance and has a good money chance. NICKY NOO and ULLA are in good nick so expect good performances.


#15 True To Life, #2 Sarah, #1 Green Plains, #5 Pool Party

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1160m, Turf, R350.000, 14:45GMT+2

Race Summary: The best Merchant in years. PRINCE OF KAHAL is bang in form and looking for 5 in a trot, however, he needs to fend off WILLIAM THE SILENT who could turn it around. Others on streaks are SUNSET EYES on a hat-trick, SIR FRENCHIE on 4 straight, ULTRA MAGNUS on 4 straight and GIMME A WAVE on a hat-trick. Stable mates MARDI GRAS (new yard) and WARRIOR’S REST could feature.


#7 William The Silent, #1 Prince Of Kahal, #13 Warrior’s Rest, #16 Gimme A Wave

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R500.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Trainer Mike De Kock has a strong hand in The Dingaans. FROSTED GOLD won on debut as a gelding and is sure to come on lengths. Stable companion MARSHALL is on the up and could extend his unbeaten record completing a hat -trick. EDEN ROC should be cherry ripe and won’t be far off. PROMISEOFAMASTER, COCKNEY PRIDE and ASTRIX are looking to get into the money.


#2 Frosted Gold, #10 Marshall, #1 Eden Roc, #4 Astrix

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R2.000.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Mike de Kock can dominate the Summer Cup with all 5 runners attracting money. SOQRAT and BARAHIN dispute favouritism. The former has come well but attempts the little extra now while the latter has Bernard aboard and the combo have yet to taste defeat and looking for 4 straight. QUEEN SUPREME has matured nicely and at the weights could get into the action. ATYAAB can go on.


#14 Queen Supreme, #1 Soqrat, #2 Barahin, #8 Atyaab

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R350.000, 17:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Classy Ipi Tombe Challenge. MILL QUEEN and WISTERIA WALK renew rivalry. They got close over 200m less and it could go either way over the extra. They receive 8kg from honest VISTULA who is on a hat-trick but could find it testing. RUNNING BRAVE and RONNIE’S CANDY are never far off. IN THE DANCE has ability and could get back on track.


#10 Mill Queen, #11 Wisteria Walk, #2 Vistula, #3 Running Brave

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 3200m, Turf, R150.000, 17:50GMT+2

Race Summary: FACTOR FIFTY is bang in form and will relish the 2-mile distance. 7-year-old mare BONDIBLU can never be ignored for money and shouldn’t be far off again. ALI BON DUBAI is back over this distance and must be respected. FLICHITY BY FARR disappointed somewhat last time and a better effort is expected. JUST CRUISED IN, DIAMOND DANCER, TIRZAN and top weight NOBLE SECRET could earn.


#5 Factor Fifty, #4 Bondiblu, #2 Ali Bon Dubai, #3 Flichity By Farr

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 10, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R100.000, 18:25GMT+2

Race Summary: 8-year-old HIDDEN AGENDA is racing like a 3-year-old and could chalk up a 9th victory. Likewise, other 8-year-old KINGS ARCHER never runs a dull race and should make a race of it. SELL HIGH just comes off a maiden win but could go on. TWO OF US has a good chance if ready after a rest, NORLAND and THRONG could make up quartets.


#7 Hidden Agenda, #2 Kings Archer, #9 Sell High, #10 Two Of Us

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 11, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R80.000, 19:05GMT+2

Race Summary: MOGGIE BROWN and PHILLYDELPHIA renew rivalry and there should be nothing between them at the weights on their meeting in here in September. CELESTIAL FIRE beat CAPITIANA by a length but the latter was on debut and could turn it around. CASUAL WEAR needs to find her form. ALLYOUNEEDISLOVE has scope for improvement. Others could pop up.


#6 Moggie Brown, #9 Phillydelphia, #3 Capitiana, #5 Celestial Fire

Turffontein Standside, 30.11.2019, Race 12, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R80.000, 19:40GMT+2

Race Summary: JETORIO is having her peak run and could take home the prize. Look for a big run from maiden WILD THOUGHTS – she needed the run and it has been done before. SEVEN SEAS is holding form and if sees out the longer distance could feature. JOLLY JOSEPHINE could turn it around with JIVE EXPRESS on 5kg difference for 2,5 lengths. Others could pop up.


#4 Jetorio, #8 Wild Thoughts, #12 Seven Seas, #2 Jolly Josephine
