1 12:05 AM – Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Welcomes You Maiden Juvenile Plate
Competitive opener which could well produce a formline to follow. GOLDEN GREY, TRIPPI’S SILK and SOLOMONS SEAL will have more to offer with the benefit of experience after pleasing introductions. GRAVITY has claims too after an improved last start. The betting market is likely to provide clues to the chances of the first-timers. Well-bred newcomers GUARDING THE WALL, LE LEGIONNAIRE, LUCE VERDE and BATON ROUGE are of particular interest. WAR CHARIOT and VOORLOOPERTJIE are others to note.
Top Tip: GOLDEN GREY (3)
Watch out for: LE LEGIONNAIRE (5)
2 12:40 AM – Cape Racing Sales Maiden Juvenile Plate
Another hot 2yo maiden. QUESTIONING justified market support on debut finishing 2nd over this track and trip, and ought to have improved since so should be competitive. ROUGAROUIN and DEVIL A SAINT are also likely to improve so could have a say. KWITE A KING was backed on debut and would have gained plenty from that experience. There are many well-bred newcomers to consider so betting support for any of them must be taken seriously. LORD QUINN, GREETING MY MASTER, PLUS FOUR, KAAPSE KLOPSE and SEA HORSE all have attractive pedigrees.
Top Tip: KAAPSE KLOPSE (6)
Watch out for: QUESTIONING (9)
3 1:15 PM – Cape Turf Club Maiden Juvenile Plate
Competitive. COASTAL COMMANDER has been 2nd in both starts over 1200m and could go one better with the extra likely to suit. DIAMOND ROCK ran his best race over this distance so should fight it out. Both STEADFAST and SACAMBAYA have the form to get into the picture. KING VISERYS, JACK IN THE GREEN and ETOILEFILLANTE are not incapable of making their presence felt either.
Top Tip: STEADFAST (2)
Watch out for: DIAMOND ROCK (4)
4 1:50 PM – Cape Turf Club Syndicates Cape A Stakes
Good race. Top-rated BEREAVE is the best-weighted runner and sets a good standard. He’ll be hard to beat if at his best in his peak outing but must turn the tables on SPEED MACHINE and in-form SILVER FALCON who is at the top of his game having won a similar contest last time. RESONATE could also have a role to play with improved fitness on his side. WECANGOALLNIGHT is weighted to reverse the form of a recent meeting with RAGNAR LOTHBROK.
Top Tip: RESONATE (1)
Watch out for: BEREAVE (2)
5 2:25 PM – Olympic Duel Stakes (Listed) (Fillies And Mares)
Good Listed race. MISS MARGUERITE is at the top of her game and has beaten most of these rivals in reeling off a hat-trick of wins recently, so is likely to go well again. KWINTA’S LIGHT is versatile and is maintaining a good consistent level of form. She ought to be competitive too. QUEEN OF SPARTA and SHE’S MY CAPTAIN are not at their best over this trip but cannot be discounted, all the same. SPYWING is dangerous on these terms and BODY ELECTRIC is not without a chance either.
Top Tip: GIMME’S LASSIE (1)
Watch out for: SHE’S MY CAPTAIN (2)
6 3:00 PM – World Sports Betting Irridescence Stakes (Listed) (2 Year Old Fillies)
Quality renewal. Well-bred stablemates BEACH BOMB and OCTOBER MORN impressed when winning over 1200m last time out and both are likely to make further progress going the extra 200m. Snaith-trained fillies FLYING V and SIDDELEY are likely to be competitive too. The former is open to any amount of improvement over this trip, while the latter has experience of having already raced well over this distance. ROYALS, GREEN VALKYRIE and QUICK TRIP complete the shortlist.
Top Tip: BEACH BOMB (1)
Watch out for: ROYALS (2)
7 3:35 PM – World Sports Betting Langerman (Grade 3) (2 Year Olds)
A typically competitive renewal of this 2yo Grade 3. Well-bred colts ZIL MORIS and SNOW PILOT have improved with each outing and could have more to offer after last-start maiden victories. HLUHLUWE has made rapid progress recently and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t continue to improve. He is 3kg better off with MY GOLLY MOLLY, who is also 3kg worse with SPRING PALACE on the form of their meeting over this course and distance. MONUMENTAL will be more at home over this trip and is capable of staking a claim too. Cracking contest!
Top Tip: ZIL MORIS (1)
Watch out for: MY GOLLY MOLLY (2)
8 4:10 PM – Final Fling Stakes (Grade 3) (F & M)
Lightly raced FUTURE GIRL built on a promising comeback run by beating most of these rivals to win the Listed Stormsvlei Stakes over 1800m and should have more to offer going this trip in her peak outing. BROADWAY GIRL, VERONICA MARS and LOVE IS A ROSE are better off at the weights so ought to pose more of a threat. GOLD POKER GAME was the big disappointment in that contest but did have legitimate excuses and must not be written off just yet.
Top Tip: LOVE IS A ROSE (2)
Watch out for: VERONICA MARS (3)
9 4:45 PM – World Sports Betting Bet With The Best Class 4
LUNCH MONEY has given the impression this trip is what he is looking for. He has got going late and caught the eye with fast finishes over 1200m, suggesting he’ll have more to offer going the extra 200m. Despite their recent inconsistency, both BARDOLINO and AUGUSTA BLUE are proven to be more than capable of staking a claim at this level. TOTHEMOONANDBACK was an eye-catching 2nd over an inadequate trip when returning from a break and, with improved fitness on his side, should have more to offer over this distance. SHOTGUN WILLIE and LAUGHING WILLIAM can get into the picture too.
Top Tip: SHOTGUN WILLIE (1)
Watch out for: LUNCH MONEY (2)
10 5:20 PM – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Class 4 (F & M)
Tricky. MULBERRY STREET has rediscovered her form and consistency since returning from a break and is taken to capitalise on this ease in grade by bouncing back to winning ways. Well-bred 2yo filly HIGHLYCONFIDENTIAL is open to any amount of improvement over the extra 200m so warrants the utmost respect. Returning TOUCH OF GRACE, consistent WHERE’S THE PARTY and FLYING FIRST, who has been getting closer recently, are all likely to be competitive too. CATTALEYA and HEAR MY VOICE have claims too.
Top Tip: CATTALEYA (1)
Watch out for: TOUCH OF GRACE (2)
