Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R70.000, 12:05GMT+2

Race Summary: RUN APRIL RUN found no support on debut but finished strongly to get close. The form has not been franked but she will know more about it. NINA AMELIA has good early toe to overcome a wide draw. COSMIC RAY needed her last outing but has been costly to follow. LHASA STAR sports blinkers now and could goon with it. RAEESAH is improving with racing and could get into the mix. COURTNEY LEIGH can do better.

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R70.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: PURPLE PANTHER ran close up in both starts to date but will be better suited to this 1600m. MAN OF PROPERTY is running well but if gives start won’t make use of pole draw. Stable mate PETERSHAM could pick up another cheque. FORT LOVE has been threatening and could be involved again. ENRICO CECCHETTI went to fast last time and should be given another chance.


#9 Purple Panther, #6 Man Of Property, #2 Fort Love, #7 Enrico Cecchetti

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R70.000, 13:15GMT+2

Race Summary: This is not a strong field and TRAVELLING WILBURY could run away with it. She did well over the minimum trip on debut and this 1600m should be more to her liking. Another looking for the extra is SCOTTISH PRIMROSE who showed inexperience on debut. LIVERPOOL LEGEND hasn’t been far off and could get into the mix. LOTUS has a shout if not affected by breathing problems.


#11 Traveling Wilbury, #8 Scottish Primrose, #5 Liverpool Legend, #6 Lotus

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R85.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race with many in top form. EXPRESSFROMTHEUS tries a little further now but doesn’t show any stamina doubts. He meets SEVEN PATRIOTS who won subsequently on 4,5kg worse terms for 3,75 lengths. CATEGORY FOUR receives weight all round and could hold consistent form. MASTER SUPREME is having his peak run and could get into the action. Top weight AMERICAN INDIAN is not out of it.


#3 Expressfromtheus, #7 Master Supreme, #8 Category Four, #6 Seven Patriots

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R85.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Top runners preparing for bigger things. ECSTATIC GREEN returns from a successful KZN raid and could continue her run. WAR OF ATHENA is looking for further but could flash up late. GIN FIZZ is best suited to this race and with stable companion DUE DILIGENCE could get into the mix. TRUE TO LIFE and CAVIVAR cannot be ignored.


#6 Ecstatic Green, #5 War Of Athena, #3 Gin Fizz, #8 Due Diligence

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R150.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Great Spring Challenge. MAGIC SCHOOL and MILL QUEEN fought out a great battle last time at this course and distance with the former just prevailing. The 3kg difference should see their positions reversed. ANYTHING GOES will be tested now. This 3-year-old is unbeaten in 4 starts and receives 5,5kg and more from her elders. Top weight GOLDEN BELLE disappointed last time but has ability and cannot be ignored.


#11 Anything Goes, #5 Mill Queen, #7 Magic School, #1 Golden Belle

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R175.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: The Spring Challenge for colts and geldings attracted a strong field. RIVERSTOWN is not well in here but current fitness could get him home. Sean Tarry’s 3 head the best weighted, CIRILLO (a touch on the far side), TIERRA DEL FUEGO (wide draw) and CHIMICHURI RUN (chance if covered till late). MOUNT PLEASANT could be anything. She won both her starts but jumps up in class. ZOUAVES and ASTRIX could earn.

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R85.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: LADY OF STEEL went over 2000m in the Woolavington last time which despite not being disgraced put an end to her unbeaten record. she is having her prep run but could resume winning ways. She takes on classy individuals like INVIDIA and EDEN ROC who have beaten each other before. PUTONTHEREDLIGHT and BENJI are looking for quartet money.


#3 Lady Of Steel, #4 Invidia, #1 Eden Roc, #5 Putontheredlight

Turffontein Inside, 03.10.2020, Race 9, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R70.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: MOMENTS LIKE THIS and CASTLE DURROW won going away on debut and should enjoy the extra. Both looked underdone and a lot more is expected. PASCHALS SAMORE and QUEEN BOMI come off maiden wins and could improve. ENTENTE could feature if she settles early. KAY TEE PERRY has ability but appears moody. TRAPICHE could just need it. ZULU DAWN and THANDEKHILE could make the frame.


#3 Moments Like This, #6 Castle Durrow, #7 Entente, #2 Kay Tee Perry
