Turffontein Preview – 15 September


Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R76.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: COSMIC RAY needed her last outing and is looking for further but tackles a moderate field and rates the one to beat. Only other filly in the race ABIA also needed her run on the poly last time and could get into the reckoning. LOCAL KNOWLEDGE is back over shorter, but a wide draw could prove costly. Also drawn wide is NATIONAL LIBERTY but along with FROZEN PALACE (blinkers on) could place. Watch newcomers.



#11 Cosmic Ray, #12 Abia, #1 Local Knowledge, #4 Frozen Palace

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: SEA WAYS gave start in both starts to date and performed well. If not too slow off the mark could grab them late. MAGIC BLAZE was rested after blowing in the Nursery but has ability and could feature on debut as a gelding. STRONG CASHA will enjoy the extra but has a wide draw to overcome. Filly FORWARD MARCH and LET’S TALK could get into the mix. Watch newcomer DR DOOLITTLE.


#10 Sea Ways, #1 Magic Blaze, #5 Dr Doolittle, #11 Strong Casha

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R76.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Both SENESCENCE and FIRE FLOWER have consistent form and could fight this out but on the draws the nod goes to the latter. ONLY THE BRAVE and WONDERFUL ROCK disappointed last time while ROSE DANCER ran below form in her last 2- all are capable of better. PERFECT PASSION and MAKE A PENNY are looking to improve.


#3 Fire Flower, #1 Senescence, #10 Only The Brave, #6 On Broadway

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R76.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: There are no stars here and if MISS KHALIFA has recovered from a nasal discharge last time could resume winning ways. GOLDEN SPIRAL has drawn wide out but will avoid trouble and could grab them late. NYMERIA must have a chance in this field. LA VALETTE should be at peak fitness and is back over shorter. GYPSY WOMAN and LASS GOING WEST come off maiden wins but could go on.


#2 Miss Khalifa, #3 Golden Spiral, #6 Nymeria, #8 La Valette

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R76.000, 15:15GMT+2

Race Summary: Difficult to assess. BOLD RANSOM and BATTLEOFTRAFALGAR are the class runners but give around 14kg to facile maiden winner VISIWAY who was on debut at this track. URBAN ROCK needed his last run and will come on. Others are all capable of getting into minor money.


#9 Visiway, #1 Bold Ransom, #2 Battleoftrafalgar, #4 Urban Rock

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: MILL QUEEN should be at peak fitness, the track should be to her liking and the distance should be ideal. The one to beat. MAGIC SCHOOL and WISTERIA WALK have known ability but could be just short a run. INVISIBLE comes off along break but is looking good for the Quartet.


#1 Mill Queen, #3 Wisteria Walk, #2 Magic School, #5 Invisible

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 16:15GMT+2

Race Summary: PUTONTHEREDLIGHT won on debut as a gelding and could double up this track and trip. APPROACH CONTROL has a good record here and should put up a good showing. ASTRIX is another who enjoys this course and distance. NAFOORAH won without raising a sweat when backed on debut but tackles a lot stronger. He will be tested. DONDERWEER could take home a lesser cheque.


#6 Putontheredlight, #1 Approach Control, #4 Astrix, #9 Nafoorah

Turffontein Inside, 15.09.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Tricky last. ULULATE comes off a maiden win but will be ideally suited to this track and trip. Stable companion LAST CHEER will be catching late. SOUL OF WIT is running close up and should again be in the money. PEACEONTHEROCKS wasn’t disgraced in her post-maiden run and comes into the picture. LAETITIA’SANGEL and TOP DRAWER could improve over the extra. GET SET could flash up late. ASTRAL PLANE can go on.


#10 Ululate, #1 Soul Of Wit, #11 Last Cheer, #2 Peaceontherocks

Best Value Bet: #10 ULULATE
