111H55 AM – Welcome To Nelson Mandela Bay Racing Maiden Juvenile Plate

A tough start. SEISMIC EVENT has tended not to finish off her race but has experience and could steal a break. Keep an eye on the betting as there are many newcomers and they do not have to be particularly good to win this race. DAMMI is a Master Of My Fate colt and his trainer Alan Greeff knows what is needed to win on debut. FLYING ASTERIX and LE BONHEUR are both from a yard that give their runners educational runs so others are preferred. LEDELL’S ECHO and NEW PERSPECTIVE are two newcomers from trainer Gavin Smith and either could win.

212H25 AM – Racing240 For Racing. For You Maiden Plate (F & M)

After three good efforts RHYTHM OF THE RAIN threw in a shocker. She joined the Alan Greeff yard and was not disgraced when runner-up on the Polytrack last time out. On her best form she clearly would win a race as weak as this. LA FILLE did not show her best on the Polytrack on local debut. She has been unreliable on the turf as well but could earn some money. RIO SUPREMO and KLASERIE need to do more to win a race but could pick up some money. ANGELS DEB’S improved nicely off her debut when touched off last time out. She could go one better.

313H00 PM – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Maiden Handicap

A weak race. MACTAVISH makes a local debut and would not be a surprise winner. It is easy to work out that ABSOLU NOIR was kept in racing as he does have some ability. Inexperience has cost him dearly in his last two starts and he could be ready to strike a winning performance. POWER SURGE has improved with his current trainer and should fight out the finish once again. SAILAWAY WITH ME will probably appreciate the return to the turf and is another with a winning chance.

413H35 PM – Mr 90 Handicap

JEAN’S MAN and CELTILLUS have both been in very god form of late and are not out of it but are better on the Polytrack. KALAHARI FERRARI is in good form and visits from the Western Cape. His form is good enough to win this race. SLINGS AND ARROWS may have just needed his last start so deserves some respect. STORM CHASER has done really well for trainer Zietsman Oosthuizen and can contest the finish once again.

514H10 PM – Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Fm 78 Handicap (F & M)

GILLIAN ANNE has lost her form of late but is quite capable of an upset if showing her best side. The drop in distance could suit EMALINE and she clearly deserves respect. Stable companion SHINE A LIGHT and PARIS OPERA both have winning chances. PARIS OPERA in particular is well suited to this course and distance. HEREINAFTER is distance suited and could pop up in a place. PAITYNS PRIDE makes her local debut and could improve.

614H45 PM – Racehorse Owners Association Fm 78 Handicap (F & M)

SAVANNAH WINTER is clearly a better horse on the Polytrack but her form cannot be dismissed lightly. Stable companion HERRIN is battling to pick up a winning thread but remains in good heart and should be right there at the finish once again. MESMERIZING MOON has done well over this course and distance and has a winning chance. SING GIRL SING is improving and could prove better than her current merit rating.

715H20 PM – Lady’s Slipper Stakes (Listed) (2 Year-old Fillies)

A competitive-looking race. CHE VINCERA was a decent winner of just her second start. Trainer Justin Snaith sends her from the Western Cape and the hint should be taken note of. CHERE FOR ME was a bitter disappointment in her latest start. Her form before that was pretty good and she could bounce back but may now be looking for the turn. Most of the others are coming off maiden wins and are still unexposed types. The best of them could be NO GREATER LOVE who won nicely on debut.

815H55 PM – thisisracing Mr 68 Handicap

AND WE DANCED was not disgraced on local debut. The step-up in distance and return to the turf will not be a problem and she always gives of her best. BOLD RESOLVE has clearly improved with the aid of blinkers and quickened nicely to win last time out despite being slowly away. MAYFERN is battling to win but is usually not far behind the winner at the line. Reserve runners MASTERFUL and EUPHORIC have both been in good form this season and must be respected if given a run.

916H30 PM – Next Fairview Racemeeting Friday 10 June Mr 74 Handicap

Another tough race to end a difficult day for punters. Go wide in the exotics. MAGNUM FIRE might be at his very best over further than this but is clearly the one with the best form in the book. ZIG ZAG is unreliable but does have a winning chance. AMERICAN LANDING has not won for some time now but is course-and-distance suited and has a chance. ALMIGHWAAR was not disgraced in the East Cape Derby and should run a big race. Stable companions JACK AND GINGER and BOLD STRIKE have been good on their day and have to be respected.
