RACE 1: 6 DIAMOND GIRL 3 LOVING THE VICTORY 2 LEOPARD LADY 10 SHAKEN NOT STIRRED
Preview: DIAMOND GIRL (6) has been well supported in both of her starts where she has not finished far behind. The blinkers go on and she may be worth another chance. LOVING THE VICTORY (3) was much improved when dropped back to a sprint and from a good draw she should be competitive. LEOPARD LADY (2) ran well below expectations last start. She had shown promise in her two previous starts and she is back on the poly.
(Andrew Harrison: 6-3-2)
RACE 2: 7 GREAT GUY 6 PACIFIC WINTER 1 CRUSADE’S STAR 5 THREE OF KNOWLEDGE
Preview: GREAT GUY (7) has been up against stronger at recent outings over course and distance. He has a claimer up here and should make a bold showing. PACIFIC WINTER (6) is always game and is in good form. Does seem better over shorter! CRUSADE’S STAR (1) showed up well first run out of the maidens. Has the best of the draw and can feature again. (Andrew Harrison: 7-6-1-5).
RACE 3: 10 TJOKLIT 5 CATCH THE TUNE 1 CAULDRON 2 THE GAUL
Preview: TJOKLIT (10) has improved at recent outings in a tongue-tie. He switches to the poly here from a wide draw but meets a modest field. CATCH THE TUNE (5) has run well on the poly. He jumps in trip but doesn’t have to be to good to win here. CAULDRON (1) improved without the blinkers from a wide draw. He has drawn pole here.
(Andrew Harrison: 10-5-1-2).
RACE 4: 8 SMART WILLIAM 4 MONTANA SKY 11 PERFECTLY PUTT 1 HIGH PURPOSE
Preview: Wide open handicap. SMART WILLIAM (8) had some fair Cape form before arriving in KZN and made a promising debut for his new stable. MONTANA SKY (4) took time to shed his maiden but followed up with a useful handicap debut. In a modest field here. PERFECTLY PUTT (11) has drawn wide but has improved in blinkers and back on the poly he can be dangerous. (Andrew Harrison: 8-4-11-1).
RACE 5: 6 RECKLESS LOVE 8 GOOD GIRL 4 LADY OF LUTETIA 5 LUNDY ISLAND
Preview: A field inclusion in the Pick 6. Almost all in with a decent chance. RECKLESS LOVE (6) has been up against slightly stronger of late. She is back on what looks to be her favoured surface and has a claimer up. GOOD GIRL (8) has only been out of the money once and was close-up first run out of the maidens. Will go close. LADY OF LUTETIA (4) finally shed her maiden last run but was consistent before that. With some confidence from that win she can be competitive again. LUNDY ISLAND (5) is unbeaten in two in blinkers. She can go in again. (Andrew Harrison: 6-8-4-5).
RACE 6: 6 ROCKLIFFE 3 AVENIR 4 BLACK FOX 10 SNOW WAR
Preview: Another wide open affair. ROCKLIFFE (6) has been up against stronger of late and has improved in blinkers. AVENIR (3) has found form again. He was a narrow winner last run but meets modest opposition here. BLACK FOX (4) needed his last run. He switches to the poly but goes well this trip. THE SNOW WAR (10) is not easy to catch right but was running on nicey last time out over course and distance. (Andrew Harrison: 6-3-4-10).
RACE 7: 2 MASTER OF DESTINY 6 SOVEREIGN SOLDIER 8 COOL RUNNINGS 4 CANADIAN BOLT
Preview: Wide open. MASTER OF DESTINY (2) has come good in blinkers and goes well over course and distance. Has a plum draw. SOVEREIGN SOLDIER (6) is never far back and loves this course and distance. Tough draw last run. COOL RUNNINGS (8) is way better than his last effort on the turf. He is down in class and has taken a rating drop that should see him run a big race. (Andrew Harrison: 2-6-8-4).
RACE 8: 2 NOBLE RHYTHM 5 HOT MONEY 6 CAPRICCIO 11 FOXY LADY
Preview: Another difficult handicap. NOBLE RHYTHM (2) was running on nicely from the worst of the draw last start. That was her first run for a new stable and with a stronger rider aboard she can make big improvement. HOT MONEY (5) goes well over course and distance. Has a better draw here and overdue another win. CAPRICCIO (6) has been trying further of late but his best recent form has been over course and distance. At best she will go well. FOXY LADY (11) has a tricky draw but has been going well since her last win. (Andrew Harrison: 2-5-6-11).
RACE 9: 1 VIHZOE’S MAGIC 2 KILEIGH’S FATE 4 SUZIE WOO 11 NOEMI
Preview: VIHZOE’S MAGIC (1) has the best of the draw and over her best trip. She looks a livewire in this field. KILEIGH’S FATE (2) showed up well from a tough draw last run and has improved in blinkers. SUZIE WOO (4) has been unlucky in her last two. This is possibly too short but she is due a change of fortune. NOEMI (11) is struggling for her next win but is never far back. She has a tough draw but should still be competitive.
