Race Summary: THUMBS UP performed well in feature-race company last time and should be hard to oppose. GLOBAL RANSOM lacked support when running on strongly on debut and will come on heaps. JONNY RIPON disappointed somewhat when a hot favourite this track and trip last time and will do better. PLUVIOPHILE could place. Watch the first-timers.

Race Summary: SUPREME ELEVATION has disappointed recently but has a chance to redeem himself in this field. INHERIT THE RAIN eased in the betting on debut but wasn’t disgraced and the extra should be to his liking. MANTERIO never got into it on debut but can only improve and Gavin Lerena retains the ride, so respect. Watch newcomers PAMUSHANA’S PRIDE and SOMASONIC.

Turffontein Inside, 26.09.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R76.000, 13:25GMT+2

Race Summary: ABIA found support last time but found obstacles too. Look for a big run. ELECTRIC BOOTS wasn’t disgraced on debut and the stable is firing – respect. LUCY BELLE should relish the extra and must be included in all bets. INCOGNITO and PIN UP could make the frame. Debutante FANTASTICAL could be anything – watch!

Turffontein Inside, 26.09.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R76.000, 14:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive race but SENESCENCE appears most likely to have scope for improvement and gets the nod. BURNT JASPER was runner-up in her last 2 and could get into the action from a good draw. TROPICAL GIVER is improving with racing and could get into the mix. The Robbie Sage-trained pair of AFLAME and SUPER DUPER are rarely far off and either could win. PEARL DANCER could make the frame.

Race Summary: GIN FIZZ loves this track but may not be able to get away over the minimum trip. On the other hand, RING OF FIRE receives 11kg from her and could capitalise on this advantage. GIMME A WAVE returns after a long break and could double up this course and distance. VALBONNE shouldn’t be far off while many others are looking to improve.

Race Summary: CAPTAIN MORISCO performed well in a feature at Greyville last time. Before that he finished just over 2 lengths ahead of BOWIE and could confirm. Stablemate GOLD SEASON races as a gelding for the first time and could come on. Stable companions COPPER MOUNTAIN and SECOND BASE come off maiden wins and should improve further. Other inmate ON THE DOUBLE is the only 2-time winner in the race and is not out of it.

Race Summary: SOUTHERN CHARM did not produced her best last time was beaten 0,75 lengths by GEE FOR GO. The latter is 2kg worse off and will battle to confirm. AFTERNOON TEA wasn’t disgraced in the Allan Robertson recently and has a chance if in a galloping mood. GLOWTORIA is holding form and could get into the money again. SPREE fought on gamely when winning on debut and could go on.


#5 Southern Charm, #10 Afternoon Tea, #6 Gee For Go, #2 Glowtoria

Race Summary: LEADING FAST disappointed on the Polytrack last time but should get back on track. WAY OF THE WORLD is bang in form and looking to complete a hat-trick. BLOND VISION appears to be finding form. KAY TEE PERRY has ability and will show true form one day soon. ROCK YOU was not striding out last time. TWELVE OAKS could get into the reckoning.

ULULATE is on the up and could complete a hat-trick. LA VALETTE could turn it around with MISS KHALIFA on the draws. GET SET claims 4kg and will be catching fast with stable mate FLY NORTH – both give start. Widely drawn KIMBERLEY GREEN could make the frame.
