1 12:25 PM – 4Racing Welcomes You Maiden Plate

CHOCOLATE BOMB was unfancied on debut but nearly surprised. The one to beat of those that have raced. He is coupled with two newcomers – respect money. Only real threat appears to be DARING ACT and is one for the Exacta. Others looking for minor money.
Watch out for: DARING ACT (1)
2 12:55 AM – 4Racing Thanks And Appreciates Mike De Kock Racing Maiden Plate
Good race. FUSHIMI INARI and MANZ KNIGHT were runners-up in their last two runs and should be right there. BROTHERHOODOFMAGIC should enjoy the extra over a longer straight and cannot be ignored for honours. MVELELO improved over the longer trip and could get into mix. LADY DYNAMO is on the up and must be considered for exotics.
Watch out for: MANZ KNIGHT (1)
3 1:30 PM – Maiden Plate (F & M)
Watch the form of Chocolate Bomb in the first – EMPRESS GAME, who was backed in all three of her starts, was well behind but she never travelled well then and should make amends. CONTRA FISCUM is improving all the while and could challenge. WILKIES was runner-up in her last two runs and could go one better. SI VELOCE disappointed on the poly last time but could get back on track on home ground. VATHOMVLAFFIE is looking for further but on her last sprint effort cannot be ignored.
Top Tip: WILKIES (2)
Watch out for: EMPRESS GAME (1)
4 2:05 PM – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Mr 96 Handicap
No runner can be ruled out. TIZONA has played second fiddle in his last three starts and deserves a win. He is coupled with STRATOSPHERIC who won his only try at this course – respect. ATTICUS FINCH won well after a rest and is 1kg worse off with TIZONA for a 1.25-length beating. He finished 2.65 lengths behind recent Gold Cup winner Future Pearl but it could get close. KOTINOS needed his last outing and could get involved.
Watch out for: TIZONA (3)
5 2:40 PM – Fm 81 Divided Handicap (F & M)
This is not a strong field and the 2.5kg allowance will enhance the chances of KWAZZI’S LADY and bring her into the picture. LAST CHEER comes off a five-month break but could challenge. She is coupled with DEVILISH DANCER who can only improve. THREE STRANDS is having her peak run and shouldn’t be ignored. QUEEN BOMI ran below form and should do better. PRETTY IN PEARLS was not striding out in her last 2 starts.
Top Tip: QUEEN BOMI (7)
Watch out for: KWAZZI’S LADY (1)
6 3:15 PM – 4Racing Thanks And Appreciates Stuart Pettigrew Pinnacle Stakes
MERCANTOUR is honest and should give another good showing, however, he gives 7.5kg to useful FLOWERBOMB who could make a race of it. CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT has won both his starts in his new yard and could complete a hat-trick off bottom weight. ROLLWITHTHEPUNCHES, SHELDON and MOVER AND SHAKER are looking for Quartet money.
Watch out for: MERCANTOUR (1)
7 3:50 PM – Book A Table Call 0116811796 Mr 82 Handicap
Very wide open and all with claims on collateral form. MUNCHKIN is having his peak run after a rest and gelding. Stablemates POWER BROKER and SIBERIAN STEEL as well as BLACK EGRET, COVERT OPERATOR, IRON SKY, STORMY SEAS and SUCCESSFUL SECRET should finish on top of one another. The remaining three runners, BRONCO BLITZ, AXEL COLLINS and AMPERSAND, could pop up.
Top Tip: BLACK EGRET (1)
Watch out for: MUNCHKIN (3)
8 4:25 PM – Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 12 August Mr 72 Handicap

FISH EAGLE is better than recent form and could find it. FULLY LOADED was unlucky not to have won last time but could get his just reward. FORT LAUDERDALE shouldn’t be far off on their last meeting, the form of which brings AFTER HOURS into the reckoning. TUSCAN GOLD makes his debut for the Tony Peter’s stable who has a unbelievable record with newcomers. WRITTEN IN STONE could place.
