RACE 1: Preview: CAPULET’S HEART (8) ran an attractive race last time and based on that has strong claims. DUCHESSOFCORNWALL (6) is holding form and knocking very loudly at the door. She should get it right soon but I do prefer her over 1000m but nevertheless – she should go close again. LOVING THE VICTORY (2) comes from the Highveld and her best efforts could well be good enough to win this – bright chance and VARVACIOUS (1) must be better than her last run – include in the quartet. (Warren Lenferna 8-5-2-1)

RACE 2: Preview: a race with not too much depth! MISS TEXAS (5) is coming along the right way and might be too strong for this field. JUST THE WIND (10) has a high draw to deal with but is never too far off the action and is a must for the quartets. MISS EMBLEM (8) is from Gauteng but did run here in KZN last time and never shone – include in larger quartets and AMBLE INN (7) improved last time but in a shallow field. (Warren Lenferna 5-10-8-7)

RACE 3: Preview: MY BIG VISION (3) caught the eye when finishing third on debut to Admire Me. The form has been franked and this daughter of Visionaire could be hard to get past. Cheek can be expected from ROCK FLIGHT (2) who is coming along the right way and should win soon, if not today. PERFECT DISPLAY (10) has done okay in the Cape and can improve plenty here and has been selected as the each way value – respect and include. GOOD GIRL (6) ran a cracker last time and has a say too. (Warren Lenferna 3-2-10-6)

RACE 4: Preview: PASSIVITY (8) is in tremendous winning form and it looks set to continue that way. HEREINAFTER (4) is holding her form and looks progressive – another honest performance can be expected from her this afternoon. FUTURISTIC DAME (7) trotted up last time and if she were to do so again, it would not be a shock to me and SCARLET CHILL (1) can never be ignored – she should be competitive in this. (Warren Lenferna 8-4-7-1)

RACE 5: Preview: DEEP THOUGHT (5) is lightly raced and clearly has some ability. Her last run was particularly encouraging and I have made her my firm first choice. ALSFLAMINGBEAUTY (8) is an interesting runner – she has been competing very well in the Cape and should give plenty of cheek in this – big runner. HOPSKIPANDJUMP (6) and BEAT IT (4) should be right there at the finish. (Warren Lenferna 5-8-6-4)

RACE 6: Preview: BRAVO ZULU (2) can serve up much more than he did last time and could represent some attractive value – bright each way chance. PACIFIC WINTER (9) has shown some talent before and might well pop up one of these days – do not ignore. SEEMYVISION (6) comes from Gauteng and can make her presence felt and ALFONSA SPAGONI (4) has fair overall form and can do much better than he did last time. (Warren Lenferna 2-9-6-4)

RACE 7: Preview: TRIP TO AFRICA (8) won very well last time and is selected to follow up. WILLIAMS LAND (9) disappointed last time but can be forgiven for that – ignore that effort – include him in most bets as he can bounce right back to best. CALIENTE (11) adores the poly and has obvious win claims and expect GURU’S PRIDE (1) to be finishing his race off very well – include in trifectas and quartets. (Warren Lenferna 8-9-11-1)

RACE 8: Preview: TOMBOLA (8) won cosily last time which was her new stable debut and has been selected to follow up. WISHFUL GIRL LINN (9) ran a cracker last time and should again be very competitive – a must for most bets. SUPER FLUKE (11) and SHEIK’S STORM (10) have the form to be concerned in the finish and are obvious quartet inclusions. (Warren Lenferna 8-9-11-10)
