At The Races
1 12:15 PM – WSB Welcomes You Maiden Plate
This is not a strong field and BREATH OF MAGIC gets another chance to exit the maiden ranks. He has the inside draw whereas serious danger SECRET CHORD, who has drawn on the extreme outside, could make use of the supposed advantage and prevent him going forward. ROCK OF BISMANTOVA should prefer a lot further but could finish off strongly into the Trifecta. Look for improvement from ATARIME and TRIP TO STATES. Watch the newcomers.
2 12:50 PM – WSB Racing At It’s Best Maiden Plate (F & M)
SUGARY SWEET has been threatening and could open her account. however, on collateral form OUT THE MIST (disappointed last time) and SOMEDAY MAYBE shouldn’t be far off. RED KNOT showed inexperience on debut but will know more about it – respect. FRENCH DUCHESS attracted money in all three runs and could produce – consider. INEVITABLE races for her new yard and could win racing fresh.
3 1:25 PM – WSB Supporters Of South African Racing Mr 75 Handicap
Tricky and many could pull it off. WHAT A TIGER is bang in form and could be the ‘safe’ horse for exotics. HERE WITH ME has issues but if problem free could win. IN THE ETHER (races before this) and AFTER HOURS (not striding out last time) cannot be ignored for money. LIL MISS MONEYBAGS and JET CAT are more for the shortlist.
4 2:00 PM – Spina Wina At WSB Pinnacle Stakes
Rejuvenated 7-year-old CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT is in top form and could chalk up win No 11. Stablemate RULERSHIP made a winning debut for his new yard and could go on. MOVER AND SHAKER claims 4kg and will try and steal a winning lead. Top weight SHELDON disappointed last time but cannot be ignored for honours. DANILO DANILOVITCH could upset calculations.
5 2:35 PM – WSB Groom’s Initiative Graduation Plate
None of the eight runners can be totally ignored for exotics. RENY comes off a break but has done well fresh. She has the class but could just need it. GUY GIBSON (blinkers on) and HAWKBILL have scope for improvement and have comparative form lines with useful Purple Pitcher – respect. PEWTER SKY is holding form and with KING’S EXPRESS enjoys a 4kg claim. HOTARUBI could get into the action.
6 3:10 PM – World Sports Betting Middle Stakes
ON THE HORIZON is hoping to keep her unbeaten record intact and make it four victories. Many are out to prove her wrong. She gets 2kg from BELLEVARDE who needed her last outing and will come on heaps. TWIN TURBO who claims 4kg will have the run of the race, and with stable companion YOUCANTHURRYLOVE could get into the money. Heavyweight STREET ART and lightweight GEORGE HANDEL could make the money.
7 3:45 PM – World Sports Betting Grand Heritage
Another competitive WSB Grand Heritage Day race over 1475m with DUKE OF SUSSEX looking to defend his title. The four strong contenders on form are SILENT WAR, who is looking for 5 wins in succession, CHYAVANA who has matured nicely, as well as stable companions, classy PYROMANIAC who needed his last run and lightly raced CELTIC RUMOURS, who will be tested. Many others could get into the money.
8 4:20 PM – World Sports Betting Heritage Consolation
THE AFRICA HOUSE should have his consistency rewarded and chalk up his 2nd victory. Stablemates RIVER QUERARESS (blowing last time) and WILLOW EXPRESS could run into money. ANGEL OF WAR is having his peak run and should make his presence felt. GOOD COUNCIL wasn’t disgraced in his first appearance for his new yard and could go in. Look for improvement from TSAR BOMBA and ARGO ALLEY.
9 4:55 PM – WSB Wishes All Stake Holders A Merry Christmas Fm 72 Handicap (F & M)
BOOM BOOM is maturing and has done well in blinkers – she rates the one to beat. STORMY CHOICE was never travelling well last time but could get back to honest ways. LADY ELLIOT attracts money but was not striding out last time – expect a better performance. SUMMER OF DREAMS, GOLDEN ASPEN and ROSE TINTED are a few of many looking for money.
