Turffontein Preview – 21 November


Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R70.000, 12:25GMT+2

Race Summary: TRATTORIA eased in the betting on debut and was well beaten into 2nd. She should relish the extra and will come on heaps. MALVERN disappointed somewhat last time but has ability and could redeem herself. COTOPAXI, FORT SNOW, REMBEZ and WHERESTHEREGOLD are looking for minor money. Newcomers SPARKLING WATER and BELLE OF BELIZE warrant respect if supported.


#5 Trattoria, #12 Sparkling Water, #1 Malvern, #11 Belle Of Belize

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R70.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: First-timers SILVER TYCOON, REUNION and HUKUM could win a race of this nature – watch the betting. CURFEW is improving with racing and the blinkers have helped. COURTROOM MAGIC was a bit disappointing last time and should do better. PAMASHANA’S PRIDE found support on debut but disappointed. He should do better but has a wide draw to overcome. Others are looking for minor money.


#14 Silver Tycoon, #7 Curfew, #10 Courtroom Magic, #12 Pamushana’s Pride

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R70.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: SAMURAI JACK has improved since sporting blinkers and if ready after a rest could chalk up a 2nd win. DR DOOLITTLE fought hard to win at the 2nd time of asking and should come on. WAQAAS could take home another cheque. FIRE FLOWER has done well in her post-maiden runs and could feature. ROYAL ESCAPADE won well after a rest and Gavin Lerena retains the ride. SHUCKRA needed his last run and could get into the mix. THE EIGHTH LORD could place.


#3 Samurai Jack, #4 Dr Doolittle, #7 Waqaas, #9 Fire Flower

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R77.500, 14:08GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. SULTANAH is on the up and if ready after a rest could complete a hat-trick over this 1600m trip. STRADA STATALE is holding form and despite top weight could get into the action again. LADY AMHERST comes off a maiden win but has scope for improvement. TRAPICHE and ROCK YOU needed their last runs and could make the frame. DIORAMA, NOW YOU SEE ME, KAPAMA, NETTA and ANATURA cannot be discarded.


#5 Sultanah, #1 Strada Statale, #9 Lady Amherst, #6 Trapiche

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R70.000, 14:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. HAVE A GO JO won well at the 2nd time of asking and although he beat nothing of note has plenty of scope for improvement. However, he tries 300m further and could be tested. MAGIC VISION pulled up distressed last time and could redeem himself. CAPTAIN CHORUS could turn it around with ZEAL AND ZEST on 1kg better terms. KURT’S APPROVAL, KOOL BAIKAL, ROCKY PATH and OYSTER KING could pull it off.


#7 Magic Vision, #5 Have A Go Jo, #2 Captain Chorus, #8 Kurt’s Approval

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R70.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: CURVATION won her only try this course and distance and could double up. PLUM FIELD will be running on late and could get into the shake-up. KAYLA’S DREAM is doing a lot better now and could go in. TARTAN DANCER is back over further and could get into the reckoning. DICE THE BULLET won her maiden after a rest and could improve further. DANCEWITHADRAGON races before this and with others could take home money.


#2 Curvation, #11 Plum Field, #1 Kayla’s Dream, #7 Tartan Dancer

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R77.500, 15:55GMT+2

Race Summary: STATELY HOME is as honest as they come and could turn it around with ILLUMINATE on 1kg better terms for 0.50-length beating. LOUIS GEM is looking for a longer trip and should be involved in the finish. SHEZAGLO lacks late acceleration and the extra could suit. OCEAN FOREST needed her last outing and could upset calculations. LIVERPOOL LEGEND could take home a cheque.


#1 Stately Home, #5 Louis Gem, #7 Illuminate, #6 Shezaglo

Turffontein Inside, 21.11.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R70.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: SOUTHERN CHARM is back over the minimum trip and could resume winning ways. PERSICA will finish off strongly if a decent pace is set up front. Likewise, COMANECI gets going late and could come into the picture. VARINA needed her last run and along with MADAME PATRICE could cut out the early pace. CLAREMORRIS was not striding out last time and along with GOLD IMAGE, could pick up a cheque.


#1 Southern Charm, #7 Persica, #2 Comaneci, #3 Varina

Turffontein Standside, 21.11.2020, Race 9, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R100.000, 17:18GMT+2

Race Summary: In a great finish DUE DILIGENCE fought off GEE FOR GO in the recent Starling Stakes over 1400m with CARALLUMA not far behind. She carries 1kg more now over 1600m and the race could go any way. CARALLUMA needed that outing and could improve most to take the honours. SENTBYDESTINY showed her class when winning against the males in a feature last time and the Turffontein Standside track will be to her liking.


#4 Caralluma, #3 Gee For Go, #2 Due Diligence, #1 Sentbydestiny


Best Value Bet: #4 CARALLUMA

Best Longshot: #4 CARALLUMA
