The Turffontein (inside) meeting today goes ahead as scheduled despite 22,5mm of rain over the past 24 hours.

The penetrometer reading is 27 and the going listed as soft.  

Perhaps the most interesting race of the day is the fillies Graduation Plate over 1000m (Race 5)., which sees a few classy three-year-olds cross swords. 

Corne Spies’ Sweet Sensation and Paul Peter’s Greens top the betting boards, but Varina (Ashley Fortune) and Southern Charm (Mike de kock) need to be taken seriously as well,  

Top jockeys S’Manga Khumalo and Aldo Domeyer are both not riding. 

There are a slew of scratchings and jockey changes (see below).
