South Africa Horse Racing Previews: TURFFONTEIN INSIDE@2022.11.22

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R90.000, 12:30GMT+2

Race Summary: WIND WATER attracted money on debut and wasn’t disgraced in 3rd place. He should go close. Biggest threat could come from stable companion COVERT OPERATOR who is consistently not far off them. LAST SURVIVOR has improved in blinkers and has a definite Trifecta chance. Others, including the 2 newcomers, could make the Quartet.



#10 Wind Water, #1 Covert Operator, #4 Last Survivor, #3 Fort Apache

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R90.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: SILVER MENSA races for her new yard. She has the form but is reported underdone, however, in this field should still make her presence felt. REGINA BELLISSIMA showed vast improvement last time and could challenge. HEART AND MIND is improving nicely and must be considered for honours. SOUTHERN STYLE was blowing last time and could get into the reckoning. LET’S CRUISE hasn’t been far off in both her starts and can only improve further.


#2 Regina Bellissima, #8 Silver Mensa, #3 Southern Style, #5 Heart Of Eternity

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R90.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. STEPPING OUT has been close up in all 5 starts and despite a wide draw, should be thereabouts again. Also drawn wide is TROIS TROIS QUATRE, who pulled up fatigued on debut but will come on. TOP SAIL and BIG GUY are others holding form and either could get into the money. TIME TO MEDITATE could make the frame. Watch first-timer CELESTIAL CITY who is reported to be doing well at home.


#2 Celestial City, #3 Stepping Out, #4 Top Sail, #1 Big Guy

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R90.000, 14:15GMT+2

Race Summary: BRAZILIAN STORM is back over a preferred 1600m and should be involved in the finish. UNITED COUNCIL never got into it on debut but look for big improvement over this distance. ROSSLYNE comes of a rest but is capable of getting into the action. ON THE GUEST LIST is held on his last run but could come on. UNAPOLOGETIC sports blinkers now and could improve to feature. CASINO GAIL can improve on debut over the longer trip.


#1 Brazilian Storm, #9 United Council, #2 Rosslyne, #3 On The Guest List

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R110.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: PLATINUM SKY wasn’t disgraced in the Victory Moon Stakes last time and even though this should be on the short side should handle this field. TOTAL PROTECTION wasn’t far back in The Graham Beck Stakes and should be at peak fitness – respect. DEFINITELY MAYBE races before this and with stablemates, COOL WINTER as well as SIMPLE SIMPLE could make the money. MO JIVE could sneak into a place.


#1 Platinum Sky, #3 Total Protection, #2 Definitely Maybe, #4 Cool Winter

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1500m, Turf, R95.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: CASTLE CORNER has drawn wide but could grab them late. CABINET SHUFFLE has also drawn wide, but claims 4kg – if ready in his new yard, could have a say. INDUS KNIGHT also makes his debut for a new yard – respect any money. SYLVAN THEATRE comes off a maiden win and could improve. FAST LOVE is running well and shouldn’t be far off. IRONTAIL is doing better. He races before this – watch. BLOOMINGTON and FOREIGN FIELD could place.


#5 Castle Corner, #4 Indus Knight, #2 Fast Love, #1 Cabinet Shuffle

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R110.000, 15:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. Despite a 1.5kg claim HOLLYWOODBOUND still carries top weight, however, he should run an honest race. ROSENWIND is a top filly and receives 5kg from him. She should enjoy the extra. EMERALD PRINCESS did well on debut in her new yard and will come on. MIDNIGHT GEM, PRINCESS PHILIPPA, DANCING ARABIAN, GOLDEN SPOON and GOLDEN ASPEN could run into money.


#6 Rosenwind, #1 Hollywoodbound, #4 Emerald Princess, #2 Midnight Gem

Turffontein Inside, 22.11.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 1450m, Turf, R85.000, 16:20GMT+2

Race Summary: BONNAROO needed her last run and looks sure to improve. JUST BE NICE should hold ASIYE PHAMBILE (races before this), MADAME VICKI, SUPER SECRET, QUANTUM and GIN AND TONIC on recent collateral form. However, ASIYE PHAMBILI pulled up fatigued then and if takes her place could turn it around. TULIP TREE comes off a maiden win and could improve. YOUNG JACKIE is another who could pop up.


#3 Bonnaroo, #4 Asiye Phambili, #7 Just Be Nice, #5 Gin And Tonic

Best Win: #10 WIND WATER

Best Value Bet: #6 ROSENWIND

Best Longshot: #6 ROSENWIND
