Turffontein Standside

Race 3 – 16:20
1160m – WSB Live Roulette Maiden Plate

7 – Fill Your Boots
Breeding: Coup De Grace (USA) – Only In Philly (USA) by Polish Numbers (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 3 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He has been disappointing in his three runs to date. Jason Gates steps back into the saddle and we are hoping to see improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Is held by number 2 on latest. Needs to show more to feature.

Race 5 – 17:30
1000m – WSB Live Blackjack Tommy Hotspur Stakes (Grade 3)

12 – Kings Road
Breeding: Vercingetorix – Kimberley Coast (AUS) by Danehill (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 9 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He steps up to up Grade 3 company and on paper, has a tough task at the weights. He does show good speed in his races and with just 52kgs on his back, we are hoping that he will be hard to catch.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:97. Won latest well. 1000m specialist and 3rd in only C&D attempt.

Race 8 – 19:15
1600m – Athina Pinnacle Stakes (F & M)

1 – Victoria Paige
Breeding: Captain Al – Miss Respect (GB) by Mark Of Esteem (IRE)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

Her last outing is best ignored as she lost many lengths leaving the starting gates. This is a prep run for a feature race at the end of the month and she would come on with this outing. We are hoping to see her jump on terms and return to form.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Blinkers OFF. Best MR:112. Gets blinkers removed. Chance if jumping on terms.

Race 8 – 19:15
1600m – Athina Pinnacle Stakes (F & M)

4 – La Luvia
Breeding: Soft Falling Rain – Mile High by Captain Al
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 3 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

She is better than her last start over 1800m on the Vaal Classic course. Her trainer has opted to fit her with blinkers and he feels that this will help her concentrate. Both her career victories have come over the 1600m and she has a good each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:95. Likely pacesetter and blinkers could do the trick. Include.

Race 10 – 20:20
1400m – Halfway To Heaven Pinnacle Stakes

3 – Chimichuri Run
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Spiced Gold by Kahal (GB)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Raymond Danielson
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 2 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

The manner in which he has been racing in recent outings suggests that he will enjoy the step up to 1400m. Raymond Danielson retains the ride and from his good draw of two, he should return to best form.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:126. Steps up in distance. Can place.

Race 10 – 20:20
1400m – Halfway To Heaven Pinnacle Stakes

4 – Ikigai
Breeding: Vercingetorix – Al Shiba by Al Mufti (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Gavin Lerena
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 6 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He is better than his last start as the race was run at a slow pace which didn’t suit him. Gavin Lerena keeps faith in the ride and if there is a decent pace in the race, he is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:118. Flat run last time. Lerena retains ride and chance on penultimate effort.
