Race 4: BITTER WIND (2)

Jockey: Hewitson L - Trainer: Gray St John D

BITTER WIND has finished third in her last three starts. She raced from just off the pace last time and stayed on well at the finish. The daughter of Sarge will be at home over the mile and if suited to the track, she should take a power of beating.

Race 6: LILY BLUE (1)
Jockey: Yeni M - Trainer: Matchett P

LILY BLUE was unlucky in her South African debut last time. She took time to get going before getting cramped for galloping room at the 100m mark. The daughter of Black Minnloushe has won three times from four starts over this distance. She should strip fitter today and with a bit of luck in running, she should take a power of beating. 

Race 7: WESTERN FORT (1)
Jockey: Kennedy W - Trainer: Peter P

WESTERN FORT did not enjoy a slow run race over 2600m last time. However, the manner in which he stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. He has won once and finished second once from three attempts over this distance. If there is a decent tempo set up front today, he should get back to winning ways. 

Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Houdalakis M

LORD MELBOURNE is one of the better bets on today's card. He ran a good race when finishing behind what looks to be a decent sort, Nafoorah from the Mike de Kock stable. He takes on weaker opposition today and despite the wide draw, he should be too good for this field.


Jockey: Juglall T - Trainer: Matchett P

WHISKYTANGOFOXTROT is the value bet on this afternoon's programme. He has had excuses in his last two starts and is much better than that. The son of Silvano has been competing against much stronger company since winning his maiden race. He has dropped to a competitive rating and if putting his best foot forward, he should cause the upset.
