Race Summary: LADY OF THE FLAME showed marked improvement in her 2nd start and from pole position could get into the action. MAY QUEEN has been running close up and shouldn’t be far behind. ZODIAC PRINCESS is another threatening to escape the maidens and is not without a chance here. RAEESAH will know more about it and with SANUK as well as TIMEFORTHAT could take home a stake cheque.

Race Summary: ELECTRA FLYING has improved in blinkers and if he is not too far behind turning for home could run them down. KOOL BAIKAL is never far behind and deserves his maiden victory – big runner. FSQUADRON has matured now and could get into the reckoning. CAPPELLA MAGNA went wrong last time and with ANOTHER PENNY could get into the frame. TEMPLE OF REASON is looking for minor money.

Race Summary: SMOKING HOT comes off a rest. She has ability but needs to behave at the start. If fancied could win it. JACKO BOY has found form and could follow up. She beat LEAGUE OF HER OWN by 2,5 lengths but is 1,5kg worse off. IDEAL CUT disappointed last time but could get into the mix. RABIA THE REBEL has a shout if in a galloping mood. TARTAN DANCER and KAYLA’S DREAM could place.

Race Summary: All 8 runners are capable of taking honours. SOLDIER ON claims 4kg. He usually gives start but finishes of strongly. CLEVER GUY is back over the right distance and must be respected. KINGS ARCHER gets weight all around and could find true form. CREATION races over his best track and trip and should be included in all bets. BENJI tries a bit further now and could see it out.


#3 Soldier On, #2 Clever Guy, #8 Kings Archer, #6 Creation

Turffontein Inside, 24.09.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: MK’S PRIDE showed inexperience in a KZN feature last time but wasn’t disgraced. Look for a big run. CERTIFIABLE is running well and should make his presence felt again. He is coupled with AFTER HOURS who got his tongue over the bit last time and will improve heaps. Despite being a 1-time-winner MOHICAN gives weight all round but cannot be ignored. SHORT STOP and WHAT A STORY could place.


#3 Mk’s Pride, #2 Certifiable, #1 Mohican, #7 After Hours

Turffontein Inside, 24.09.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 15:55GMT+2

Race Summary: The St John Gray stable is firing and he has 2 strong contenders in HOLY MAN and PUTINS PROMISE who should be in the shake-up. However, top weight and widely drawn ROCK OF AFRICA won’t go down without a fight and could take it. Both CITY BY THE SEA and ICE MAN COMETH won on the 2nd time of asking and could improve more. WE ALL CHOMIES could keep galloping over the extra.


#1 Rock Of Africa, #3 Putins Promise, #2 Holy Man, #8 City By The Sea

Turffontein Inside, 24.09.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R76.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Joint top weight PALACE ASSEMBLY has been threatening for win number 3 and has a bright chance of accomplishing it here. GEMCUTTER is holding form and should contest the finish. GANG LEADER won on his 3rd try and has scope for improvement. VAR AGLOW has blinkers refitted and could feature. PERSICA races before this – watch the form. PILLAROFTHEEARTH is capable but appears moody. Others could pop up.


#1 Palace Assembly, #6 Gemcutter, #12 Gang Leader, #5 Var Aglow
