Turffontein Preview – 15 February



Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R90.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: FAIRY GODMOTHER found support on debut but showed inexperience and should run well from a good draw. She is coupled with MILFORD SOUND who could prove a decent guide. FLOWER SEASON has a good record – runner-up last 4 times from 5 starts so should be thereabouts (coupled with newcomer JUST JUDY). CURVATION has a poor draw to contend with. DOUBLE HEARTS and FIREWORKS can earn.



#12 Fairy Godmother, #1 Flower Season, #5 Curvation, #2 Double Hearts

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R90.000, 13:15GMT+2

Race Summary: GOLDEN TUNE, GENERAL JACKSON, BELSHAZZAR and RED ADMIRAL are having their peak runs and are sure to improve. The first mentioned appears to be coming along best and gets the nod. PUTINS PROMISE has done well in both his starts but races before this – watch the form. FAST DRAW has a wide draw to overcome. UP EARLY is looking to improve.


#1 Golden Tune, #2 General Jackson, #12 Putins Promise, #4 Belshazzar

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R90.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: BINKY has been threatening. He has been runner-up in both marathon starts and should get his just reward. WISHONAIRE is now finding form and enjoyed the longer trip. NUMERICAL improved last time but now goes 800m further. TYRELLS BULLET comes off a break after bleeding but could earn if problem free. WORD RULER and FIERCE FIGHTER could take home minor money.


#3 Binky, #14 Wishonaire, #2 Numerical, #1 Tyrells Bullet

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R130.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: SUNSHINE SILK gets weight from all. She won her only try this course and distance and could double up. CHIJMES gives her 9,5kg but is capable and won’t lie down. AL MUTAWAKEL charges late and could grab them. DIVINE ODYSSEY can never be ignored and could feature. SEVILLE ORANGE could get away but hasn’t done well at this track, whereas TILBURY FORT produces his best here.


#8 Sunshine Silk, #1 Chijmes, #3 Divine Odyssey, #2 Al Mutawakel

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R120.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Sean Tarry holds a strong hand with RETURN TO FLIGHT and IN THE DANCE. The former should be ripe and ready to win over the right track and trip. The latter is holding her own and forms a strong back-up. The battle for minor money looks tricky. SARAGON is never far behind and could head the group. SCENT OF EVENING needs to reproduce her penultimate run.


#1 Return Flight, #2 In The Dance, #4 Saragon, #8 Scent Of Evening

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R130.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: This time the Tarry yard has 3 runners who could dictate – MATADOR MAN who gives start but could finish off strongly, TIERRA DEL FUEGO who is holding top form and WARRIOR’S REST who knows how to win fresh. CAPTAIN ALDO is a lot better than his last run. LA BELLA MIA loves this track but tries a little further now. ZOUAVES, DANZA and STATE TROOPER could go in.


#5 Warrior’s Rest, #4 Tierra Del Fuego, #1 Matador Man, #3 Captain Aldo

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R100.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: OCEAN CITY ran close up after a rest and should run another true race. GEMCUTTER is another holding form and should be right there off a handy weight. DONNY G can never be ignored for money. SCOOP is starting to come right – respect. PRINCE OF VENICE and SILVER MASTER are looking for quartet money.


#6 Ocean City, #9 Gemcutter, #2 Donny G, #3 Scoop

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R90.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: OUR MAN HAVANA is on the up and beat ROCKY PATH (2kg better) by 1,25 lengths last time. It should get close on paper but the former should confirm. AFRICAN ADVENTURE needed his last run and the extra will suit. MASTER SUPREME won his maiden narrowly but is still learning and will come on. Others are looking for place money.


#1 Our Man In Havana, #2 Rocky Path, #4 African Adventure, #6 Master Supreme

Turffontein Inside, 15.02.2020, Race 9, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R90.000, 17:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Tricky race to end. Both sired by Flower Alley, ADORABLE ALLEY and FAYROOZ will relish the extra and could be anything. EVER FAIR is running well and should be in the reckoning. SUPER DUPER and VARQUERA needed their last runs and could get into the mix, SMOKING HOT comes from the Candice Dawson yard who is just that. COTOPAXI could make the frame.


#4 Ever Fair, #11 Fayrooz, #10 Adorable Alley, #2 Super Duper
