At The Races

1 11:55 AM – 4Racing Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)

UNIVERSAL LOVE is going over a preferred distance and should be involved in the finish. ANDI’S GIRL has been supported in both starts but should do better over the extra – respect. THE WORK OF LIFE is doing better and rates a Trifecta chance. AZALEAS FOR ALL disappointed last time but could get into the money. LORNA LILY has a shout if confirming her last effort.
Watch out for: AZALEAS FOR ALL (4)
2 12:25 PAM – Racing240 For Racing. For You Maiden Plate
MONDIAL was quietly fancied on debut and did well to run second. He can only come on. HOLOCENE found problems last time and should give a good account of himself. HOUSE OF ROMANOV has his first run in new surroundings and must be respected. MAMBO’S CALL is looking for further but could run on into the Trifecta. PURPLE PITCHER hasn’t been far behind to date and could get into the money. CARE LAIR FARE and PEARL HARBOR are looking to improve.
Top Tip: MAMBO’S CALL (6)
Watch out for: HOLOCENE (7)
3 12:55 PM – Book A Table Call 0116811796 Graduation Plate (3-Year-Old Fillies)
CALLMEWHENUNEEDME has been in the money in all 7 starts and could chalk up her 3rd victory. KEY ELEMENT, TAMIL TIGRESS, DAKOTA CAT and ELEMENTAL FORCE come off maiden wins and could come on in heaps. LADY ELLIOT wasn’t disgraced in her post-maiden. SILVER SANCTUARY took a walk in the betting last time and could do better. Others are looking for minor money.
Watch out for: KEY ELEMENT (2)
4 1:30 PM – Fm 76 Handicap (F & M)
Tricky as many could pull it off. Slow starter TREE FAIRY could flash up late. QUIET REBELLION will appreciate the 2.5kg off her back and could go in again. THREE STRANDS has drawn wide but cannot be ignored. Stablemates I AM REGAL and PRETTY IN PEARLS can get into the action. COUNTESS DANZA is one of more for the short list.
Watch out for: I AM REGAL (2)
5 2:05 PM – Racehorse Owners Association Middle Stakes
Most runners will find supporters but they will all have to beat DESTINY OF SOULS who should be ripe and ready to score. TWIN TURBO will have the run of the race and could keep up the gallop. Stable companion LUTHULI cannot be ignored. BEY SUYAY (touch far) and stablemate BALLROOM BLISS should give a bold showing. STRATOSPHERIC, THE KOP and TERRA TIME could pull it off.
Watch out for: TWIN TURBO (3)
6 2:35 PM – Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Mr 82 Handicap
FUNKY MUSIC has come well and completed a hat-trick last week. He could go on for 4 straight. Respect money for MAJESTIC TOUCH. He won on the second time of asking and wasn’t disgraced in a KZN feature subsequently. MINI COOP has been disappointing but could flash up late. SILENT WAR was heavily backed when winning at the third time of asking in new surroundings. BIOFARMER won on debut at 33-1 and could be anything.
Top Tip: FUNKY MUSIC (2)
Watch out for: SILENT WAR (3)
7 3:10 PM – Mr 81 Handicap
BLOOMINGTON has yet to win at this track but has a bright chance of putting the record straight, however, he has old-man NORDIC REBEL to contend with. The latter has his blinkers back on and the 2.5kg apprentice claim will help. TOFFAS comes off a break after not striding and could win fresh. Respect JP TWO THOUSAND – he is looking to resume winning ways. BACK TO BASICS is another for the short list.
Watch out for: BLOOMINGTON (2)
8 3:45 PM – Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Mr 96 Handicap
TIZONA was runner-up in his last four starts but is fancied to win before this – watch. CRIMSON PRINCESS is in form and could go in again. SMITH AND WESSON will run on if covered early. Stable companion ZUZAN will appreciate the drop in trip. WILLOW EXPRESS, WHISPERS OF WAR, and WINTER STORIES could get into the reckoning.
Watch out for: SMITH AND WESSON (3)
9 4:20 PM – Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 31 August Fm 72 Handicap (F & M)
Open race to end. INVENTRIX found problems in her last two runs but if trouble-free could take the honours. MIA REGINA is threatening for a second win. Her stable companion INSATIABLE cannot be ignored for money. HAPPY ANALIA has blinkers back on and could feature. SAMOA disappointed in her last two runs but can get back on track. RED CARPET GIRL has a shout if putting all in. IN THE ETHER could just need it.
Top Tip: SAMOA (1)

Watch out for: INSATIABLE (3)
