At The Races

1 11:50 AM – 4Racing Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)

WOMAN OF POWER was beaten in both starts when hot favourite to score and hopefully, despite a wide draw, could get it right. BOOM BOOM is improving but will be looking for further. SAHARA DAWN is sure to improve on debut. SHINE IN MEMPHIS has a money chance if puts it in. PHANTOM EXPRESS did well on debut but disappointed in both subsequent starts. Watch debutante MISS PLATINA.

Top Tip: BOOM BOOM (3)
Watch out for: MISS PLATINA (7)
2 12:20 PM – Book A Table Call 0116811796 Maiden Plate
BEAMONESQUE eased in the betting on debut but fared well when close up in 3rd place – expect a big run. ETHANATOR was rested and gelded after disappointing and could strike fresh. MIZZEN SAIL is making steady improvement and could get into the money. CALLABURN and JUSTCANTGETENOUGH are looking for Quartet money.
Top Tip: ETHANATOR (1)
Watch out for: BEAMONESQUE (6)
3 12:55 PM – Come Watch Rugby Final At Turffontein 28 Oct Graduation Plate
CHASING HAPPINESS won impressively on debut and could be anything. However, she is coupled with BARBARESCO who has top form – respect the money. RED HOT ROSE has competed with above average runners but along with SILVER TUDOR, could just need it. There shouldn’t be much between SUPER AWESOME, RAVEN BLACK as well as DREAMLAND and with RICHARD THE FIRST are looking for minor money.
Watch out for: RED HOT ROSE (9)
4 1:30 PM – Take A Bet Wina Numba Numba Fm 96 Handicap (F & M)
Difficult to assess. SECOND BREATH has ability but also has issues. She beat WHAT A HONEY and in her next two runs was not striding out and coughing. On a collateral form line, she holds COLDHARDSTARE who did better when covered early. WINTER GREETING races fresh before this. She is coupled with EMERALD PRINCESS who drops in distance. MYTHICAL DREAM tries the extra but needs to be covered.
Watch out for: EMERALD PRINCESS (2)
5 2:05 PM – Mr 75 Handicap
NAPOLEON is honest and gives a run for money – the safe horse. TURBO POWER needed his first run as a gelding and if the 2nd run after a rest has no ill effect then he sure could win. PLAYER has solid form but comes off a lengthy lay-off and could be short a run or two. NOTHINGELSEMATTERS, ELUSIVE SWANN and MOOLA MAN found problems last time and could improve. DIESEL’S SHADOW disappointed last time.
Top Tip: TURBO POWER (1)
Watch out for: MOOLA MAN (2)
6 2:40 PM – Tab Rugby Pinnacle Stakes
Many are prepping for future events so it could be wise to lean towards fitter runners, such as MERIDIUS and MELECH – both are in form and could take advantage. BILLY BOWLEGS makes his debut for his new yard. He has ability but could need it. LITIGATION needed his first run as a gelding and must be respected. DUKE OF SUSSEX sports blinkers and if they have no adverse effect could feature. ATTICUS FINCH has a wide draw but a handy weight and is racing fit.
Watch out for: MELECH (6)
7 3:15 PM – Allez France Stakes (Fillies & Mares)
APACHE FIGHTER should give a good account of herself. She is running well and the distance should be ideal. She is 1.5kg better off for a short head whereas RARATONGA ROSE is 2kg better off for 1.50 lengths with OPERA GLASS on their recent meeting. UNITED COUNCIL jumps up to a marathon trip, the blinkers are off and he could come right. CRIMSON PRINCESS could be found wanting over the extra with top weight.
Watch out for: OPERA GLASS (3)
8 3:50 PM – Free Kiddies Entertainment 28 Oct Mr 96 Handicap
RUNNING RIFLES has the speed to overcome a wide draw and dictate from the jump. The one to beat. INDLAMU has fared better in the barrier positions and could challenge. CAPTAIN OF GRIT is a consistent earner and should make his presence felt. BLOOMINGTON enjoys this track and could get into the action. TIRPITZ could just need it while RIVER ROMEO could need a bit further.
Top Tip: INDLAMU (3)
Watch out for: RUNNING RIFLES (4)
9 4:25 PM – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 21 October Fm 88 Handicap (F & M)
SHARAPOVA could have her consistency rewarded and chalk up a deserved 2nd win. She finished over 3 lengths ahead of TRENTINO and should confirm at the same weights. MAGICAL FLIGHT is running close up and should give another honest performance. JUST BE NICE found problems last time and could get into the reckoning. RIVER QUERARESS and QUE CEU AZUL could pop up.
Watch out for: SHARAPOVA (5)
