Race 1
Caliente ran a cracker first time out after losing ground at the start. The right one here. Pot Luck wasn't beaten far last time out and could place here. Prince Ponti ran a string of seconds, had a bad run then took a break. This is his second run after the rest. Watch.

2/1 Caliente, 7/2 Q Behind Me, 7/2 Pot Luck, 4/1 Prince Ponti, 14/1 Pavarotti Passion, 20/1 Wolf Killer, 20/1 Iknow, 20/1 Irish Single Malt, 20/1 Checkpoint Charlie, 20/1 Var's Boy, 20/1 Saffinator, 33/1 King Of Samash

Race 2
Got Your Back is merit rated well enough to go very close here after doing just that time out. Roy Royale has been consistent of late in this type of division. Watch. Part To Glory is going for the hattrick but gets another three pound penulty. Place

3/1 Colour Your Dreams, 7/2 Roy Royale, 7/2 Path To Glory, 4/1 Got Your Back, 10/1 Gold Chalice, 14/1 Brave And Bold, 14/1 Midnight Messenger, 14/1 March Preview, 20/1 Phoebus, 20/1 Silver Cent, 20/1 Strong 'n Brave, 33/1 Iced Up

Race 3
Marshall That is favoured to reverse the form with Lupo with the weight turnaround. In great form and has the apprentice weight off. Our Moon Shadow has won trice on this track and could go close again after two good wins recently. Lupo won last time out. Good Chance again.

3/1 Our Moon Shadow, 7/2 Marshall That, 8/1 Lupo, 10/1 Duzi Moon, 10/1 Elusive Wolf, 10/1 Call Me Winter, 10/1 French Legend, 10/1 Diamond Noir, 14/1 Tsessebe, 20/1 Professor Brian, 20/1 Ronnie Rocket, 20/1 Zeb

Race 4
Kinsky's Crusade is speedy and could make all with the big mass. Burfi has the weight off and could go close based on her run when beating the first selection. Rosie Bubbles is in the same formline and could be right there. Nice race to watch.

5/2 Kinsky's Crusade, 4/1 Sheik's Storm, 6/1 Seatops, 10/1 Above Eleven, 10/1 Fair Antonia, 14/1 Burfi, 14/1 Var Agtig, 14/1 Lunar Tide, 14/1 Rosie Bubbles, 14/1 Tommaso, 20/1 Mainland

Race 5
Marriot gets the weight off and that could be the telling factor in a close event. In decent form too. Widest of draws. Eddie Sweat hardly runs a bad race and hasn't been far off. Place. Noble Duke also has decent form, and never far off.

7/2 Touch Of Magic, 4/1 Sand Path, 5/1 Great Dictator, 6/1 First Mate, 10/1 Eddie Sweat, 12/1 Noble Duke, 14/1 Flying Myth, 14/1 Nauticus, 14/1 Marriot, 16/1 London Knight, 16/1 Shadow Catcher, 33/1 Silver King, 50/1 Captain Cobalt

Race 6
Summer Sky's run to African Night Sky was eye catching and that could be good enough here. Lord Balmoral is the biggest danger after a win in Durban and then a decent run in the Drill Hall. Bulleting Home has all the form but returns after a year off. May need it. Well weighted.

2/1 Bulleting Home, 11/4 Lord Balmoral, 3/1 Summer Sky, 4/1 Catkin, 16/1 Royal Armour, 16/1 Trojan Harbour, 25/1 Cutting Edge

Race 7
The Post Merchants, one of the big sprint races at Greyville, has attracted a nice field. Legislate is favoured after a cracking barrier trial and may have the class over this shorter distance to take this race. He is the class of the race. Attenborough won the fast Computaform Sprint but disappointed a bit in his next start. Will go close again. This race is likely the target for Black Cat Black and should be respected. He is in very good form. The same goes for Crawford's other runner Sunset Eyes who is a big danger.

5/2 Sunset Eyes, 7/2 Black Cat Back, 6/1 Legislate, 7/1 Attenborough, 8/1 Sniper Shot, 12/1 Pure Blonde, 12/1 Mombela, 12/1 Wonderwall, 16/1 Wynkelder, 25/1 Bishop's Bounty, 25/1 Our Mate Art, 25/1 Rock Of Africa, 25/1 Too Phat To Fly, 33/1 Hoist The Mast

Race 8
Toltec wasn't far off in the Daily News and this could be the right race for him. His form prior wasn't bad either. Gone Baby Gone is seven now buy has decent form. One to watch. Techno Captain has been running in better company. This step down could be the tonic.

4/1 Toltec, 5/1 Top Classman, 7/1 Sheet Weaver, 7/1 Malinga, 7/1 Liverpool Lass, 10/1 Rio De La Plata, 14/1 Gone Baby Gone, 14/1 Techno Captain, 14/1 Volcanic Sunset, 14/1 It's My Way, 20/1 New Fort, 20/1 Ataturk

Race 9
Silvan Saint ran another nice race last time out and this could be her turn. Has been close up in many recent starts. Regent Seven was also behind Emperor Niarchos last time out and must also have a big chance. Expresso Martini wok twice in lesser company recently. Four pounds penulty for the latest win. Place.

4/1 Expresso Martini, 5/1 King's Music, 7/1 Silvan Saint, 7/1 Laat Lammetjie, 7/1 Sea Sponge, 10/1 Son Of Silver, 14/1 Night Lock, 14/1 Spice Roads, 14/1 Cosmic Knight, 14/1 Passioneight, 20/1 Regent Seven, 20/1 Big Blue Sea
