Saturday 19 February 2022
Turffontein Inside

Race 4 – 13:25
1450m – Racehorse Owners Association Graduation Plate

7 – Caralluma
Breeding: Pomodoro – Kalanchoe by Kahal (GB)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She finds herself in a very competitive Graduation Plate. However, she is the best weighted runner in the race. She is drawn in pole position and with Gavin Lerena in the saddle, she has a good each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:103. Runner-up behind a decent filly in latest. Respect from pole.

Race 5 – 14:00
1450m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Graduation Plate (F & M)

3 – Hotchiwitchi
Breeding: Twice Over (GB) – Carlas Wisdom by Jallad (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 8 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She ran a very good race when finishing second in her comeback run over today’s course and distance. She has come on since the outing and will strip fitter. It is an open race and she has work to do at the weights. However, if putting her best foot forward, she should be involved in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:79. Just pipped in latest. Dark Travel went close next time.

Race 5 – 14:00
1450m – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Graduation Plate (F & M)

9 – Waya Yire
Breeding: Querari (GER) – Southern Pine by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 3 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

She was disappointing in her last start, but is better than that effort suggests. It is a competitive Graduation Plate for the girls and she is out at the weights. The daughter of Querari jumps from gate three and we are hoping to see her return to form.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Much better than latest. Reunites with Habib and should improve.

Race 6 – 14:35
1600m – 4Racing.tv MR 77 Handicap

8 – Wokonda
Breeding: Captain Of All – Elata by Fort Wood (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 1 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She is better than her last start as the distance was too short and her tongue was over the bit in running. The stable have added the tongue-tie which should make a big difference. She does take on male company, but she gets the services of Richard Fourie and she should run an improved race.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:80. Well beaten in latest over shorter. Fourie takes the ride and can improve.

Race 10 – 16:55
1200m – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Thursday 24 February Classified Stakes

3 – Desert Pride
Breeding: Pomodoro – Al Zahra by Al Mufti (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 4 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She showed some signs of a form return last time when changing the tactics. This is a competitive field, but she is doing well at home and can run into the first three once again.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:86. Improved last run despite over racing. Can confirm if suited to this course.
