Golden Pacific (far side) and Esther (closest) clash again on Friday, this time on the poly (Pauline Herman Photography)
Gold Circle
R1     (3) Justcantgetenough is holding solid form and will have a strong winning chance. (4) King Of Queen is another who is holding solid form and should fight out the finish with the top selection. (1) Battle Of Kursk represents highveld form and cannot be ruled out with Richard Fourie aboard. (10) Aquila Gold is making progress with every start and will have a say here. ( Devonne Govender 3-4-1-10)
R2     Tricky contest, this is wide open. (10) Venetian Moonlight ran extremely well in the last start and needs to repeat that performance here. (6) See You In A Bit ran a much improved race in her last start and if building on that will have a big say in this contest. (8) Gotcha Buzz ran well over the 1000m trip and should be right there if building on that run, she has been fancied in the past and it will be interesting to see how she goes over this 1200m trip this time compared to the last start. (1) Cicadidae has to be respected despite the fact that the form doesn’t really stand out, she has a top rider up and can make the frame. ( Devonne Govender 10-6-8-1)
R3     (2) William’s Legacy is holding consistent form and will be there in an open looking race, the claimer will certainly enhance his chances. (3) Run For Me ran well in the last start and will make a bold bid once again. (4) Regazzo Grande can get involved for the placings here. (11) Belle’s First Wave has always been running well recently at decent odds so is a must include. ( Devonne Govender 2-3-4-11)
R4     (3) Raising Quinn has been threatening to win and needs things to go her way, she will be the first choice and represents value. (6) For All We Know is always involved in the action and will be a massive contender. (7) Gold For Africa must be included however does have a tricky draw and may have to be used up from there however the claimer could make all the difference. (8) Nyali Beach has a place chance after a much improved last run. ( Devonne Govender 3-6-7-8)
R5     (1) Life On Mars has been knocking on the door and could take a power of beating with the apprentice claiming 4kgs. He has been racing consistently and is sure to give a bold showing. (2) Body Electric must be respected with a top rider up as she brings Cape form here. (6) Grey Smoke was a long shot winner so will need to repeat that. (4) Pompei Warning is never far back and has a shout here. ( Devonne Govender 1-2-6-4)
R6     (8) On The Road Again is clearly better than his last run so that’s best ignored, his poly form is decent and he should be able to bounce back here. (7) Notorix is very capable on his day and wont be far. (7) Tuscan Gold is never far back and will make the frame. (1) Transact has a tricky draw however cannot be ignored. ( Devonne Govender 8-7-3-1)
R7     (2) Golden Pacific is holding solid form and with the claimer taking weight of will have a massive winning chance. (8) Paris Lass is holding form well and must be respected. (3) Summer Odyssey has been consistent and won’t be far. (1) Esther is always there in the action and can be included in larger perms. (Devonne Govender 2-8-3-1)
R8     Tough race. (2) Wind Sock is very capable on his day and that last run is good enough to win here. (6) Bennelong Point has a big finish and cannot be left out, he will be there. (9) Joyous Jubilee is over due for another career win and will be flying late. (8) Legal Chitchat represents Cape form and cannot be discounted. ( Devonne Govender 2-6-9-8)
