1 12:40 PM – Betway Insurebet Work Riders Maiden Plate
BREATH OF MAGIC has been threatening to exit the maiden ranks and should have a bright chance this time. GUARDIA REGINE wasn’t fancied on debut but did not disgrace. Look for improvement with Sam Mosia aboard. Likewise, CREPUSCOLO and NKANDLA GOLD are others looking to improve on debut. PLAY WITH FIRE has been disappointing since her debut effort but could find it. PIKE PLACE and FIRE FIRE can do better. Watch newcomer ROCK OF BISMANTOVA.
Top Tip: BREATH OF MAGIC (3)
Watch out for: CREPUSCOLO (6)
2 1:15 PM – Betway We Pay Your Tax On Horse Racing Wins Maiden Plate
POCKET WATCH found all kinds of problems last time and should be right there – respect. After finishing runner-up in his last two, KINSHIN SHA could get his just reward and record a deserved victory. BATTLE OF KURSK has a Trifecta chance while TO THE KING and CIRCLE OF GRACE could fight out Quartet money.

3 1:50 PM – Betway Tote Rewards Club Maiden Plate (F & M)
STRIKING ANGEL hasn’t been far back in all three starts and should be thereabouts again. Similarly, JUMPING ANALIA was close up in both her starts and should challenge. SEBASTIAN’S ANGEL shouldn’t be far behind her on their recent meeting. CHILLI MARMALADE is better than her last two runs. BLUP BLUP was a well beaten second on debut but could come on. LIFE LESSON and FAIRY CIRCLE could place. Watch the 4 first-timers.

4 2:25 PM – Betway Back The Boks Maiden Plate
TRIP TO STATES could take advantage of a moderate field. DUKE OF ROCK disappointed in his second run but has changed surroundings since and if ready could strike – watch the money. EIGER SANCTION made vast improvement in his second run and could go on – respect. BREGARDT could make the frame.

Watch out for: DUKE OF ROCK (2)
5 3:00 PM – Betway Aviator Maiden Plate (F & M)
THE WORK OF LIFE is maturing and should be right there. VILLA SEMAYA disappointed last time but is back over a preferred distance and could make amends. UNITED WE STAND is better than her last run – respect. BOOM BOOM, ARIEL’S JET and CRIMSON FOREST will relish the extra and must be considered for money. ANGEL OF MY HEART can improve on debut.

Watch out for: UNITED WE STAND (2)
6 3:35 PM – Betway Boost Mr 67 Handicap
In a tricky race, COUNT YOUR CHANCES could prove the ‘safe’ bet. She is holding form and should give another decent showing. EIFFEL TOWER lacks betting support but looks to be above average – the distance should be in his favour. DIESEL’S SHADOW comes off a maiden win but has scope and could follow up. GODFATHER, WAQAAS and PARKER GETRIX are more for the short list.

7 4:10 PM – Betway Money Back Boost Fm 90 Handicap (F & M)
Small field but good race. OPERA GLASS nosed out APACHE FIGHTER (0.5kg better) last time and had PATON’S TEARS (3.5kg better) 3.5 lengths behind. Over the extra 200m it could get close all round. PRINCESS KESH, SPECIAL CHARM and PRETTY IN PEARLS could get into the Quartet.

Watch out for: APACHE FIGHTER (2)
8 4:45 PM – Betway Get Way More Mr 68 Handicap
COROMANDEL is threatening for his third victory and after two seconds could go one better. IDEAL FUTURE is having her peak run and should be right there. TREE FAIRY is better than her last run and could get back on track. It is wide open for minor money but if GO DREAM MACHINE puts it in she could get into the mix.
Top Tip: COROMANDEL (4)
Watch out for: TREE FAIRY (5)
