Turffontein Inside

Race 3 – 13:35
1000m – Racing240 For Racing. For You MR 95 Handicap

4 – Goliath Heron
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Water Bird by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 3 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He is a winner of his last two starts, the latest of which was over this track and trip. He is in a good space and is moving well. He does meet a competitive field, but Calvin Habib knows him well and he is capable of notching up the hat-trick.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:102. Has good gate speed and hat-trick is on the cards.

Race 5 – 14:45
2000m – Play Soccer 6, 10 & 13 MR 80 Handicap

3 – Flying Grace
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Sacred Hills by Kildonan
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 10 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He drops back to 2000m and is drawn wide in barrier ten. The slight concern is that he may be at his best on a track with a longer straight. However, he is sound and fit heading into this race. Calvin Habib retains the ride and he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Fair latest over further. Won penultimate run over this distance.

Race 5 – 14:45
2000m – Play Soccer 6, 10 & 13 MR 80 Handicap

5 – Ushuaia

Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 12 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He was disappointing in his last start in soft conditions. This is his third run after a rest and he will be at peak fitness. He will be switched off near the rear of the field from a wide draw and is expected to be running on at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Gelded 2021.06.29. Best MR:81. Needs big improvement to feature.

Race 7 – 15:55
1450m – www.highveldracing.co.za MR 86 Handicap (F & M)

Breeding: Captain Of All – Elata by Fort Wood (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 9 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She has been a model of consistency and has not missed a cheque in all of her races. She is drawn widest of all, but Keagan de Melo does know her well. With a bit of luck in running, she has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Won latest well and got three pound penalty. Yet to be unplaced over this C&D.
