8 GALLIC CHIEF 2 COMING IN HOT 12 QUIZ MASTER 9 ZURI’S STAR

Preview: GALLIC CHIEF (8) found some market support on debut and was only caught late. That run should hold her in good stead. COMING IN HOT (2) is a Highveld raider that has shown some ability. First KZN raid for trainer Fanie Bronkhorst. QUIZ MASTER (12) is a first timer with a blue-blood pedigree and with Marcus in the irons any market support must be respected. ZURI’S STAR (9) has a quick pedigree and could also pay to watch. (Andrew Harrison: 8-2-12-9).

13 CIVIL RIGHTS 3 ROCK ON PHILLY 2 AISLING 5 SEA OF TRANQUILITY

Preview: CIVIL RIGHTS (13) won well second time of asking and looks to have some scope. ROCK ON PHILLY (3) won well on debut and was well supported in the market. AISLING (2) beat Civil Rights when the latter was making her debut and may not be able to confirm that form. SEA OF TRANQUILITY (5) was all at sea on debut and is one to keep an eye on. (Andrew Harrison: 13-3-2-6).

15 TRUMPET VOLENTRY 9 CASIMIRO 7 SHAMOOZI 5 GREY OCEAN

Preview: Tricky race. TRUMPET VOLUNTRY (15) ran well below expected last start but meets a weaker field here and should have a strong chance. CASIMIRO (9) has only had three starts. Tried further last run but best effort has been over course and distance. SHAMOOSI (7) has improved in blinkers and now gets a tongue-tie. GREY OCEAN (5) has come on at recent outings and is another to consider. (Andrew Harrison: 15-9-7-5).

10

11
Wide draw but in good form. Go close.

11 MR FITZ 4 SOCRATES 1 WILLIAMS LAND 6 SIR MICHAEL

Preview: MR FITZ (11) has the worst of the draw but has been close-up in his last two and should feature in a competitive handicap. Stable companion SOCRATES (4) seldom runs a bad race and was and was a touch unlucky to be narrowly beaten by the highly rated Guru’s Pride last outing. Stable jockey Keagan de Melo has shunned the ride on WILLIAMS LAND (1) who gets blinkers for the first time and has been close-up at recent outings. De Melo rides SIR MICHAEL (6) who makes his local debut but he has been racing over further. One to watch. VINSON (3) has come well of late but does take on stronger here. (Andrew Harrison: 11-4-1-6).

5

16

17

10 FULL BLAST 6 AL’S MY DADDY 1 DIAMONDS AND PEARLS 2 DANCING FEATHER

Preview: FULL BLAST (10) won well first run out of the maidens beating a useful field. He looks to have plenty of scope but will need to be at his best to beat a field packed with form. AL’S MY DADDY (6) showed signs of coming to hand when blinkered for the first time and with a four-claimer up should be competitive. The fillies DIAMONDS AND PEARLS (1) and DANCING FEATHER (2) are both smart on their day and can put on over their male rivals. (Andrew Harrison: 10-6-1-2-).

6
1
Surprised last run. Enjoyed the turf.
2
Fair last effort. Can earn.
3
Better than latest but consistent.

8

9
Well held on last effort.
10
Must improve on latest.
11
Narrow last Kenilworth win but can go in again.
12
Ignore latest after a break. Can surprise.
13
Never too far back.
14
Fair post maiden form from wide draws. Light weight.
15
Jumps in trip.

7 TWICE TO SYDNEY 6 KEEP ON DANCING 11 SILVER MARIA 1 BASETSANA

Preview: TWICE TO SYDNEY (7) has been close-up at her last two from wide draws. She is better off at the weights with the recently much improved KEEP ON DANCING (6) and can turn the tables. SILVER MARIA (11) comes off some useful Cape form that could prove a little stronger than currently rated. BASETSANA (1) made major improvement when upsetting last run. It was her second run after a lengthy break and she could be the dark horse. (Andrew Harrison: 7-6-11-1).

7
1
Needed latest badly. Takes on males.
2
Narrow last win. Form stable.
3
Needs to improve on recent.
4
In a tough one.
5
Come good in blinkers. Chance again.
6
Rested. Smart on his day but may need it.
7
Never far back.
8
Beaten favourite last two. Straight course could suit.
9
Disappointed without the blinkers. Back on.
10
Won well last start. On the up.

10 LIGHT THAT LOOSE 9 SPYDAS CORNER 5 FILIPPO 8 KAYSON

Preview: Tricky. LIGHT THAT LOOSE (10) is on the up and both recent wins have come with some cut in the ground. There has been some rain about. SPYDAS CORNER (9) was not at his best without the blinkers last run. They are back on here and he should do better. FILIPPO (5) has come good in blinkers and was a comfortable winner in good company last time out. He should be thereabouts again. KAYSON (8) has started favourite in his last four, disappointing in his last two. The straight course could see him back to best form. (Andrew Harrison: 10-9-5-8).

8

Rested. Back to a sprint.

17

3 GOLDEN TRIP 2 DIAMOND GIRL 12 BLANCHETTA 13 CAPRIANA

Preview: GOLDEN TRIP (3) makes her local debut. She improved nicely second time out albeit a work riders race. She meets little on note here. DIAMOND GIRL (2) makes her debut with stable rider Sean Veale jumping off DUCHESS OF SUSSEX (16). BLANCHETTA (12) is battling but has not been far off at recent outings. CAPRIANA (13) has shown some ability and has a money chance. (Andrew Harrison: 3-2-12-13).
