Turffontein Inside meeting moved to The Vaal – Race distance changes as follows : Race 3 now 1400m Race 6 now 2400m
112h00  – thisisracing Welcomes You Juvenile Plate (Fillies)

Four of the seven runners carded are first-timers. Watch the betting especially on QUEEN OF GAUL. The three raced runners, MISTY CLIFFS, KITTY CORNER and SOUTHERN STYLE are all looking to improve on their debut runs but of those, the last mentioned looks the one likely to give most cheek.

212h35  – Kiddies Entertainment 2 April Juvenile Plate

FENNEC FOX found problems when well fancied last time and could redeem herself. However, MAGIC TYCOON should be right there when it matters and must be considered. CLEAN LIVING was quietly fancied on debut and wasn’t disgraced. She should get into the money. LORD OF LIGHT could prove best of the Johan Janse van Vuuren’s four but all could be looking for further.

313h05  – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Maiden Plate (F & M)

BELLEVARDE comes off a rest and doesn’t take on a strong field. She is reportedly working well and should be right there. RED HOT was hampered at the start last time and could challenge. LAZER GRACE needed her last outing and should get into the action. COUNTRY FLAME is better than her last two and has a Trifeta chance. Gallant OCEANS PRIDE is looking for another stake cheque. I AM ROYAL and ROCKINGTHETIMEAWAY could get into the frame.

413h35  – Seafood And Jazz Festival 2 April Mr 96 Handicap

One-time-winner WHAFEEF tackles a strong field but gets weight all round and could get home. THEORY OF FLIGHT is holding form and could hold BOWIE (3kg better for 3 lengths) on their meeting in November. FIGHT SONG races in new surroundings and needs to overcome a wide draw. Top weight MARDI GRAS and BALLON D’OR could get into the reckoning.

514h10  – Racehorse Owners Association Mr 80 Handicap

Competitive. Stable companions CASTLE CORNER and ADMIRAL DOOLEY could get into the fight for honours. DAWN OF A NEW ERA was runner-up in his last four and could get his just reward. BEY SUYAY is holding form and shouldn’t be far off again. Lightly raced EVENING PRIMROSE needed her last run but has drawn wide out. Many others are looking for minor money.

614h45  – Racing240 For Racing. For You Mr 76 Handicap

AFRAAD has found form and could chalk up a sixth victory. SO LONG SPRING won full of running over this course and distance last time and could could go in again. LONDON ROADS comes off a maiden win on the third time of asking. He has improved in blinkers and has plenty of scope for improvement. APOLLO ROBBINS is coming right and could get into the picture. MYSTERY BOY races in new surroundings and could feature. ARYAAM races before this – watch.

715hh20 – Fm 74 Handicap (F & M)

Very wide open. GLOBAL LOUISE needed her last run and will relish the extra. CRUSADE TO ROYALTY is honest and despite a wide draw should make her presence felt. Nine-time-winner RABIA THE REBEL is moody but cannot be left out. JIVE EXPRESS should be cherry-ripe and could be involved in the finish, while stablemate STATELY HOME cannot be ignored.

816hh00 – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 19 March Classified Stakes

Another difficult race to end the meeting. CALL ME MASTER holds a few on form, however, he is carded to race before this – watch. SECRET GIVER could prefer the slightly shorter trip and could get into the action. QUATTRO PASSI is holding form and won his only try this track and trip. ASTROCYTE is improving nicely and could go on from a maiden win. DARK TRAVEL could finish off strongly from a wide draw. Many others could get into the Quartet.
