TOP BET
Race 1: BLACK SAIL(1)
Jockey: R MUNGER - Trainer: A FORTUNE

BLACK SAIL expectedly didn't handle the mile on his local debut but the former Cape resident will strip fitter and should love today's sprint trip on pedigree. He has a wide draw to overcome but his track experience will stand him in good stead and the lightly raced Black Minnaloushe gelding could prove tough to beat.

Race 2: TARGARYEN QUEEN(3)
Jockey: K ZECHNER - Trainer: D SHAM

The lightly raced former KZN resident TARGARYEN QUEEN should build on her fair Highveld debut where she ran on late for 5th from a wide draw over this c & d when returning from an eleven week absence recently. She faces moderate raced rivals and the main dangers could be the two newcomers SUMMER AFTERNOON and VERITAS from the Tarry & Van Vuuren stable's respectively. The former is a daughter of Trippi who jumps from pole position whilst the latter is by Captain Al out of a Galileo mare and top rider Gavin Lerena climbs aboard.

Race 7: BOCKSCAR(2)
Jockey: L HEWITSON - Trainer: S TARRY

BOCKSCAR is often thereabouts and the Tarry inmate handled the steep rise in class well when he ran on eye-catchingly for 5th over this c & d on his seasonal debut last month. Of course the 10th placed entrant Classify boosted that formline with a gutsy subsequent triumph and this sparingly raced five year old holds lively claims at this level today.

Race 9: VAN HALEN(2)
Jockey: C ZACKEY  - Trainer: T SPIES

Last season's Grade 1 winning colt, VAN HALEN hails from a yard that often gets their charges fit and ready and this three-year old bay colt is best weighted on his first run this term. Of course he had dual subsequent winning top class rival Chimichuri Run behind him in his finest moment last time out and should take some beating.

VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 5: ANIMAL LOVER(9)
Jockey: D SCHWARZ - Trainer: G ALEXANDER

Some real quality fillies and mares do battle in this competitive ten furlong handicap, the formline of which is certainly worth following. The two lightweights ANIMAL LOVER and PEARL OF BAHRAIN renew their recent rivalry and though the pair take on considerably stronger opposition today, they should be heavily involved in the finish, with a slight preference for the former. The four-year old import finished smartly for a close 2nd to the latter over this c & d three weeks ago after she was equipped with blinkers and she is 0.5kg to the good. The latter gave her top conditioner good options with that smart recent performance over this trip and the pair should make their presence felt.
