RACE BY RACE PREVIEWS: KENILWORTH@2019.12.04

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 900m, Turf, R75.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Hard race to assess with no form go on. Richard Fourie has a good record when riding for Mike Robinson so his booking bodes well for the chances SPECIAL AURA. The Kotzen yard has been doing well with its fillies so the yard’s 3runners must be respected, although MIDFID TWO makes most appeal on pedigree and riding arrangements. FAVORITA and DADS CATCH are others to make note of

Selections:

#6 Spacial Aura, #3 Mifid Two, #5 Ruby Rhythm, #2 Favorita

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R70.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: SPEED OF NIGHT has pleased in both starts but may needed his last run aftera rest, so is open to any amount improvement. He and well-bred PARKTOWN are bred to better over the extra so expected to fight out the finish. FINAL APPEAL is held on the form of his debut by the selection but will be wiser to the task and could get closer. DOUBLE CHARGE is another likely to improve.

Selections:

#9 Speed Of Night, #8 Parktown, #6 Final Appeal, #4 Double Charge

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R70.000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: PROCLAIMER has improved with each start and finished ahead of several of these rivals over the course and distance last time. With further progress expected, she should confirm superiority and could shed her maiden tag. REEF KNOT is getting with experience too and should be competitive. OVER THE WAY has another money chance. FOXY LADY, WHISKY TANGO and SNOWDROPS can also earn.

Selections:

#4 Proclaimer, #5 Reef Knot, #1 Over The Way, #3 Foxy Lady

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R70.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive event and a few with chances. O SOLE MIO and HALLIBERRY are due maiden wins and have the form to play prominent roles but are worth opposing from wide starting berths. Well-bred ROCAMADOUR is improving and with further progress expected should be involved, although the same could be said of stable companion CAMINO PALMIERO who runs as if this trip will suit. Open!

Selections:

#6 Camino Palmero, #4 Rocamadour, #1 O Sole Mio, #3 Halliberry

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R75.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: ANSE LAZIO concedes plenty pudding but stays well and has scope to improve,so could be up to the task. MIRACULOUSLY OURS is open to improvement too and is bred to get the trip, so could pose a threat. Both WINTER SHADOW and EARL OF WARWICK are better than their recent efforts suggest. They’re capable of getting a look in, as are MELIORA and TROOP THE COLOUR over this distance.

Selections:

#1 Anse Lazio, #4 Miraculously Ours, #6 Winter Shadow, #3 Earl Of Warwick

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R65.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. BAYBERRY caught the eye on his seasonal reappearance when running on well over shorter and could underline his Guineas credentials with the step up to this trip likely to suit. Both well-bred AZORES and STANLEY beat Lit by 0,5L over this trip when shedding their maiden tags and on that form are closely matched. WINTER OVER can earn, while CAPTAIN TURK has more to do.

Selections:

#1 Bayberry, #3 Stanley, #2 Azores, #4 Winter Is Over

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1100m, Turf, R80.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. TRACES caught the eye when returning to form in a Gr.2 last time. He was well backed on that occasion and on these terms should reverse the form of an earlier meeting with consistent MACHIAVELLI, who should give a good account. AGENT OF FORTUNE could make amends after a disappointing last start with blinkers refitted. GENERAL FRANCO will be competitive this distance.

Selections:

#6 General Franco, #11 Traces, #1 Machiavelli, #8 Cartel Captain

Kenilworth, 04.12.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R65.000, 17:15GMT+2

Race Summary: Open. MR COBBS ran well on handicap debut in a similar contest and even under a big weight should go well again. QUINTAY wasn’t disgraced either in a better race over further on his handicap bow and a return to this trip may suit. WARRIOR TIGER and WINTER ASSEMBLY face tougher tasks out the maidens butboth have shown enough to be competitive. Include RED EIGHT and PRINCE ORACY

Selections:

#2 Mr Cobbs, #3 Quintay, #5 Warrior Tiger, #10 Prince Oracy

Best Win: #1 BAYBERRY

Best Value Bet:

Best Longshot: #6 CAMINO PALMERO
