1 12H00 – WSB Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)
SILVER CLOCK was narrowly beaten in her last 2 starts. She had BIRD IN SPACE just behind her in her last run, however, the latter lacked support on debut but showed up well to get close. She could turn it around. SIMPLY MAGIC improved in new surroundings and could get into the action. ANTIGUA NIGHT showed inexperience on debut but will know more about it. Watch first-timers, especially SILVER MENSA.
Top Tip: SIMPLY MAGIC (1)
Watch out for: ANTIGUA NIGHT (5)
2 11H30 – WSB July R100 000 Deposit Match Maiden Plate
Draw a line through the last performance of PINCH HIT. He ran flat and if reproduces his debut run could take the honours. PENDRAGON wasn’t far behind him last time after finding problems and can improve more. SONNENSTRAHL has proven costly to follow but could appreciate a short rest and pull it off. CAPTAIN PERSIA and TARTARUS can improve to get into the action. Watch newcomer SPIELBERG.
Top Tip: SONNENSTRAHL (2)
Watch out for: SPIELBERG (3)
3 13H05 – WSB Bet With The Best Maiden Plate
After 3 successive second’s, DAWN MISSION could get his just reward and deservedly escape the maidens, however, CHASING MAVERICKS, who hopefully has a trouble free run, should make a race of it. MANZ KNIGHT showed inexperience in both starts but should know more about it. THE BRIEF was heavily backed last time but could get involved in the finish. ATLANTIC CITY needed his first run as a gelding and could improve.
Top Tip: THE BRIEF (1)
Watch out for: DAWN MISSION (2)
4 13H45 – WSB Online Casino Mr 96 Handicap
Good race. On their recent meeting there shouldn’t be much to choose between WHAFEEF and LEOPOLD and could get close again. INDLAMU does his best when striding freely in front but has a big weight and could get nabbed late. PRINCE EVLANOFF and SIR MICHAEL could just need it. WILLOW’S WISH and NORDIC REBEL could make the frame.
Top Tip: INDLAMU (1)
Watch out for: PRINCE EVLANOFF (2)
5 14H20 – wsb.co.za Highveld Winter Juvenile Fillies Stakes
The Highveld Winter Juvenile Fillies Stakes over 1400m sees top filly MAHARANEE looking to extend her unbeaten sequence to four. Despite giving 5kg and more to the balance she will be at restricted odds. RIMAAH rates her biggest threat. She was only 2.50 lengths behind her over over 1200m and has proven her strength over the extra. NONE OTHER and SIMPLE SIMPLE are looking for Trifecta money.
Top Tip: MAHARANEE (1)
Watch out for: RIMAAH (4)
6 14H55 – World Sports Betting Highveld Winter Juvenile Stakes
Highveld Winter Juvenile Stakes 1400m looks interesting. ARGO ALLEY looks well above average and is looking for a hat-trick. He rates the one to beat. The entire field are looking to upset. Besides the aforementioned both GOLDEN PROSPECT (won debut not fully wound up) and EAST COAST (2kg better off with ARGO VALLEY for 5 lengths) have won over this trip. MERCANTOUR has won his last two. The rest are all capable of getting into the money.
Top Tip: ARGO ALLEY (1)
Watch out for: GOLDEN PROSPECT (4)
7 15H30 – World Sports Betting Jubilee Stakes (Grade 3)
THE WORLD SPORTS BETTING JUBILEE STAKES (Grade 3) over 1800m looks competitive. Stable companions PUERTO MANZANO and SECOND BASE come into the reckoning on current form but the stable elect could be the former on riding engagements. However, they concede 8.5kg to filly PERFECT WITNESS which could be beyond them. NAVAL GUARD is only maturing now and with GOLDEN PHEASANT are looking for four straight wins. ZILLZAAL has ability if puts it in.
Top Tip: PUERTO MANZANO (1)
Watch out for: SECOND BASE (2)
8 16H05 – WSB Sign Up Now Pinnacle Stakes (F & M)
Wide open. MILL QUEEN has found form and could resume winning ways back over this distance. However, with BON VIVANT, who has her peak run are drawn wide out and need to get lucky. ETERNITY RING found the trip too far last time. She races for her new yard and the blinkers are back on – respect. FOLLOW ME won from the front but is better when covered. She could finish off strongly. BEQUEST could enjoy the extra.
Top Tip: ETERNITY RING (1)
Watch out for: FOLLOW ME (2)
9 16H40 – WSB Thanks You For Your Support Fm 72 Handicap (F & M)
Difficult race to end. This is not a strong field and ZANOBIAN PRINCESS could get away. However, BELLEVARDE (problems last time) should be right there on an earlier meeting. DARK TRAVEL gets going late and is a must for exotics. KIND JUDY is holding form and must be considered. Stable companions LAST CHEER (needed last run) and ANATURA who appears to be coming right again could have a say. CODE ZERO has a wide draw to overcome.
Top Tip: BELLEVARDE (1)
Watch out for: CODE ZERO (2)
