South Africa Horse Racing Previews: KENILWORTH@2022.05.18

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R70.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: YELLOWPORSCHEROAD only found one better on debut. If smarter this time, which is likely, he is going to be hard to beat. CHARLIE CROKER has shown some pace in his three starts. He needs to do more to win a race but could earn some money. The balance of the field is made up of first-timers, so keep one eye on the betting. The Justin Snaith newcomer GREEN FALCON is probably the best bred and one to watch.

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R70.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: COUNTRY TIME did not show much on debut, but exhibited good pace in her next start and could go one better this time. SILVER SCREEN showed pace on debut and was not disgraced when fifth. She could earn some money. STAR IN WINTER seems unreliable and a tough ride, but clearly has a winning chance. Snaith Racing has three newcomers carded and the best of them looks to be the Trippi filly TRIP TO BARBERTON. Keep an eye on the betting.

Selections:

#3 Country Time, #9 Star In Winter, #10 Trip To Barberton, #8 Silver Screen

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R70.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: A competitive looking race. CANFORD LIGHTS has improved with each race and showed he has no problem with this distance. He is the one to beat. LAST STORM was slow away and did not show much on debut. He did a lot better in his second start and was not too far behind rival CANFORD LIGHTS. He should be right there at the finish once again. PAS DE NOM was not disgraced when runner-up last time out. He is badly drawn this time around, though. TOTHEMOONANDBACK improved in his second start and has a winning chance.

Selections:

#1 Canford Lights, #4 Last Storm, #6 Pas De Nom, #12 Tothemoonandback

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R70.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: A tough race for the exotics and the best advice is to go wide in this leg. NAUSHON is clearly better than his last run would suggest and deserves respect. TIN CUP was not beaten far last time out and from a good draw has to be considered. AENEAS has improved with the aid of Blinkers and could be ready to score. SPIRIT OF SILVANO, ELECTRIC WARRIOR, DOUGLAS and GUY ALEXANDER all have a winning chance. TWICE THE MASTER is in good form and could go one better this time.

Selections:

#8 Twice The Master, #7 Guy Alexander, #6 Douglas, #1 Naushon

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R55.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: EXCEEDER is in good form and looks overdue another win. In this small field he looks the right one. COUP DE MAIN has been unreliable of late. He is suited to this type of distance and has to be respected. FLY OVER and THEFUTUREISBRIGHT have some fair form and could be involved in the finish once again. THOUSAND SHIPS is improving and is coming off a nice maiden win. He could be the biggest threat to EXCEEDER.

Selections:

#1 Exceeder, #5 Thousand Ships, #4 Thefutureisbright, #3 Fly Over

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R90.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: A tough race and most of the runners hold a winning hope. WALK OF FAME does not win very often but has some fair form and must be considered. DAD’S CATCH usually gives her best and is quite at home over this course and distance. LA FOLIE DOUCE is improving and has a big winning chance. Trainer Andre Nel has a couple of runners in the race and the best of them of them could be FUSILLADE. This filly looks to be better than her rating and has a winning chance. STARBOARD needs further and is returning from a break.

Selections:

#4 Fusillade, #3 La Folie Douce, #1 Walk Of Fame, #2 Dad’s Catch

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R60.000, 16:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Another open looking race. MISS GREENLIGHT won well over this course and distance in her penultimate. She found the shorter distance a bit sharp last time out but was doing good work at the finish. PERFECT TRUST is unreliable and is better over a bit further, but is clearly not out of it. POLAR WORLD, BONIKA and LITTLE DOE are all in good form and have a winning chance. FLY TO RIO could pop up into a place.

Selections:

#2 Miss Greenlight, #10 L’Ami Jean, #11 Little Doe, #1 Fearless Trip

Kenilworth, 18.05.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 1100m, Turf, R60.000, 17:15GMT+2

Race Summary: SILVER SALMON showed nice promise early in his career. He lost his way but has improved lately and has a winning chance if anywhere near his best form. The one to beat though is DEAN STREET. This Master Of My Fate gelding was full of running last time out and could be way ahead of his current merit rating. BALTIMORE JACK and BLUFF ON BLUFF are coming off modest runs but are capable of doing better and could earn some money. AULD MUG was not disgraced in his latest start and has a winning chance.

Selections:

#3 Dean Street, #2 Silver Salmon, #4 Baltimore Jack, #8 Auld Mug

Best Win: #9 YELLOWPORSCHEROAD

Best Value Bet:

Best Longshot: #4 FUSILADE
