Turffontein Preview – 3 September


Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: GILBOA was backed in his 2nd start when showing good improvement. He should enjoy the extra and looks the one to beat. MARS ROVER needs to find 1,5 lengths on him but should follow him home. QUATTRO PASSI, DA ORANGE HORSE, WOLFF’S WORLD and newcomer COUNT ALLEY could get into the Trifecta.


#8 Gilboa, #4 Mars Rover, #5 Count Alley, #7 Da Orange Horse

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: TUSCAN LIGHT needed her last run and deserves a victory. She should be thereabouts, however, she is coupled with TOOCOOLFORSCHOOL who appears to be stable elect on riding engagements – watch! INCOGNITO has fared poorly in the draws again but has a definite money chance. VELD FLOWER, LADY NICA, LOUIS GEM as well as companions OLIVIA and SWISS BANK could feature.


#4 Tuscan Light, #2 Veld Flower, #1 Incognito, #7 Swiss Bank

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R76.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: BEFORE THE DAWN is honest and despite a hefty 63kg on her back should give it her all. However, CLAREMORRIS receives 13,5kg from her which could be telling over the last 200m. HERSTEL is highly thought of and could get her act together. GLOWTORIA, NAWAASI and FLORENCE could get into the frame.


#10 Claremorris, #1 Before The Dawn, #6 Herstel, #8 Glowtoria

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R76.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: ALL OF ME is ready to get back to winning ways and should give a good account of herself. PALACE ASSEMBLY and stable companion ISPHAN rate serious dangers. The former will be closing in on his inmate in the latter stages. With a 4kg weight allowance GALACTIC WARRIOR could find the winner’s enclosure. VALBONNE was not striding out last time but has a big weight.


#3 All Of Me, #6 Palace Assembly, #4 Isphan, #7 Galactic Warrior

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R76.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: MASTER SUPREME is better than his last run and could turn it around with SHOGUN on 2kg difference for 3,25 lengths. Another runner sure to improve is BERGERAC and could reverse form with NORDIC REBEL who shouldn’t be far behind them. TREND MASTER is holding form and cannot be left out of calculations. CAPTAIN CHORUS can improve more.


#1 Master Supreme, #3 Shogun, #4 Bergerac, #2 Nordic Rebel

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R76.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. PROSPECTOR has the most scope for improvement and could chalk up a quick 2nd run, however, he was well beaten by DOGLIOTTI when on debut but the latter could just need it. The latter could hold DARK TIDE on their meeting in June but he is holding honest form and must be respected, Stable mate LORD MELBOURNE is better than his last run and cannot be ignored. NORLAND and WHIPPING BOY could earn.


#4 Prospector, #11 Dogliotti, #2 Dark Tide, #3 Lord Melbourne

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R76.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Difficult to assess with many runners having previous engagements. SUN GIANT looks likely to be the one with most scope for improvement and gets the nod. OUT OF THE RAINBOW has a chance if confirms his latest performance. The same applies for SECRET DYNASTY who has pole position. IN THE GAME has a shout if he is in the right mood. Many others could pop up.


#6 Sun Giant, #2 Out Of The Rainbow, #8 Secret Dynasty, #10 In The Game

Turffontein Inside, 03.09.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 2600m, Turf, R76.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Difficult race to end. THE SASH came off a break strongly and could go in again. She beat LITTLEWOOD by just over a length and 1kg difference could see it get close between them. PUCKER UP held form but could be held by the 2 runners mentioned above. PLUM FIELD is never far behind and could get into the picture. NABEELA comes off a maiden win but could enjoy the extra.


#5 The Sash, #1 Littlewood, #9 Pucker Up, #2 Plum Field

Best Win: #8 GILBOA

Best Value Bet: #10 CLAREMORRIS

Best Longshot: #10 CLAREMORRIS
