Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R70.000, 12:30GMT+2

Race Summary: ASIYE PHAMBILI proved costly to follow in both starts but could show her true potential and should be given another chance. ROSY LEMON found no support on debut but challenged strongly to get close in third. KENTISH MAID is looking to improve on debut. MIGHTY GODDESS could sneak into a place. Watch first-timer WINTER MUSE – she is reported to be a useful filly.

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R70.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: A few runners are looking to improve. PRINCESS ILARIA is probably looking for further but after two good performances should be involved in the finish. RED EMPEROR showed up well on debut and will know more about it. WOODLAND RIDGE found support in both his starts but disappointed. He could produce expected form. STROKE OF MERCY did well on debut and comes into the picture. Both newcomers could place.


#9 Princess Ilaria, #4 Red Emperor, #7 Woodland Ridge, #5 Stroke Of Mercy

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1700m, Turf, R70.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: TOP SAIL hasn’t been far back to date and the extra should suit. AFRICAN TORRENT showed vast improvement in his second start and could feature. BATTLEGROUND is improving with racing and should make his presence felt. Stablemate KING OF ROME wasn’t far behind him in his second start. Both will come on. SKYJET is another looking to improve. Watch Flower Alley newcomers COMMANDING POWER (blinkers on) and OTTO LUYKEN.


#3 Battleground, #1 Top Sail, #2 African Torrent, #8 Skyjet

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1700m, Turf, R70.000, 14:15GMT+2

Race Summary: PACIFIC EXPRESS races in new surroundings. She doesn’t tackle a strong field and could strike on debut in her new yard. INNER SENSE sports blinkers now and any improvement should see her in contention. STREET’S AHEAD is carded to run on 27 September and that run must be looked at. MAITH AN CAILIN is on the up. COFFEE IN SEATTLE and DOUBLE JOY are looking to improve.


#6 Pacific Express, #1 Inner Sense, #3 Street’s Ahead, #5 Double Joy

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R90.000, 14:52GMT+2

Race Summary: KARANGETANG is highly thought of and makes his comeback run as a gelding. Watch the betting. FAR AWAY WINTER is smart and will give a run for money. SHOW TIME needed her last run and receives chunks of weight from both – respect. TRUST THE FIRE is running well but could battle with top weight. Both stablemates to the first mentioned, REMEMBER WHEN, who races fresh after bleeding and SHELDON, who needed his last run, could earn money.


#2 Karangetang, #3 Far Away Winter, #7 Show Time, #1 Trust The Fire

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1500m, Turf, R60.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: KENTALLEN BAY looks useful and could complete a hat-trick. Stable companion WHISPERS OF WAR was narrowly beaten first time out in new surroundings and could go one better. BEY SUYAY earns his keep but his weight is against him. SOUTHERN BLAZE lost many lengths at the start last time but if jumping on terms will be right there. Stablemate CASTLE CORNER could place. CAPTAIN OF GRIT comes off a rest but could make the frame. SEQUOIA is looking to improve.


#8 Kentallen Bay, #2 Whispers Of War, #9 Southern Blaze, #1 Bey Suyay

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R100.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. There should be nothing between BALLROOM BLISS, TERRA TIME and SOUTHERN SONG on recent form and any could take it. Stablemate to the first mentioned, KIND JUDY, is holding form and shouldn’t be far off. Any improvement could see PRINCESS KESH involved in the finish. SNOW PALACE could win if she is in the right mood. OPERA GLASS has a big weight. DARK TRAVEL could place.


#4 Southern Song, #5 Terra Time, #2 Ballroom Bliss, #7 Kind Judy

Turffontein Inside, 29.09.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R60.000, 16:37GMT+2

Race Summary: MIRREN is in form and could complete a hat-trick. FASINADA is also running well and should be involved in the finish, however, GILDA GRAY is 1,5kg better off with her for 1.8 lengths and could represent value. SUN BIRD needed her last outing and will come on. LIVERPOOL LEGEND won last time and could challenge. RARATONGA ROSE comes off a deserved maiden victory and could come on.


#7 Gilda Gray, #6 Fasinada, #1 Mirren, #2 Sun Bird


Best Value Bet: #7 GILDA GRAY

Best Longshot: #7 GILDA GRAY
