Race 1
STRAIGHT SIX showed good improvement in his first run as a gelding over 1200m on the turf. He set the pace that day and stayed on well at the business end. The son of Querari should have no issues with the extra furlong on offer and should strip a much fitter horse. From his mid-field draw, he may be hard to peg back. 

WHAT A RYDER ran a fair race when finishing third over this C&D, three weeks ago. He jumps from another good draw today and should the top choice fluff his lines, he may be the one to pick up the pieces. 

NORTHERN TUNE makes his stable debut for the Chris Erasmus yard. His last effort over this distance at Kenilworth was decent. If suited to the polytrack and if not in need of the run, he should give a good account of himself.

Race 2
SIBERIAN SUNSET showed good improvement in her stable debut for the Nathan Kotzen camp. She raced from a handy position that day, but her pilot dropped his crop in the latter stages. It must be noted that Freestate Star has come out and won again since. She should strip a much fitter horse this afternoon and with a bit of luck from her wide draw, she can shed her maiden tag. 

MY BIG VISION was in need of her comeback run over seven furlongs. Her debut effort over 1200m was promising. The daughter of Visionaire should enjoy the rise to the mile and should strip fitter. From her good draw, she should pose a threat. 

GLOBAL APPEAL has finished third in her last two starts with the blinkers fitted. She has cracked a good draw this afternoon and will be staying on in the run down to the line. 

Race 3
POLICY TARGET has finished second in his last four starts. He raced from a handy position last time, but found one too good in the form of Count Marsh. Gareth Wright does duty this afternoon and if allowed to use his action in front, he should be hard to peg back in the run down to the line. 

JUST DIXIT showed good signs of a form return over 1700m on this course last time. He was reported to have spread a shoe that day which makes the effort that much more encouraging. If repeating that effort, he should be one of the leading contenders. 

ZERO RATE was his own worst enemy last time as he overraced in the early stages. The headgear has been removed for this outing and he will enjoy the drop back in distance. Raymond Danielson takes the ride and if switching off early, he should be competitive. 

Race 4
SACRED IBIS ran a good race when finishing third in her last start over 2000m on the turf. She lost a length at the start and despite overracing in the early stages, she ran on well. The daughter of Byword won her only attempt over this C&D. She takes a slight drop in class and if apprentice Jabu Jacobs is able to switch her off early, she should take a power of beating. 

SHASTINA has run two good races since winning her maiden over this C&D. She moved up like a winner last time, but was outrun in the latter stages. She gets the services of a 4kgs claiming apprentice today and with a bit of luck, she should be right there. 

FIRE FAERIE finished 1.9 lengths behind the second choice last time. She is 3.5kgs worse off at the weights and may battle to turn the tables.

Race 5
SOVEREIGN SOLDIER is the value bet on today's card. He had to ease at the 200m mark last time and was reported to be cut into. He finished 2.15 lengths behind MASTER TOBE in his penultimate start and is 3.5kgs better off at the weights. All four wins have come on this course and with a bit of luck in running, he can get back to winning ways. 

JUSTFORTHEEPENNY'S last two starts have been good. The manner in which he stayed on at the finish last time was encouraging. He gets the services of a 2.5kgs claiming apprentice today which should help his chances. 

MASTER TOBE is unbeaten from two starts for the Mark Dixon stable. He returns from a well-deserved 11-week break and if not in need of the run, he can notch up the hat-trick. 

Race 6
This is a very competitive MR 79 Handicap for the girls and caution is advised. The tentative first selection is LADY LEGEND from the Wayne Badenhorst and Barbara Kennedy stable. She was given a peach of a ride when winning her last start over this C&D. She gets the services of a 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Kyle Strydom which should help her cause. She is likely to race up with the pace and may be hard to peg back. 

FUTURISTIC DAME finished 1.35 lengths behind SIMPLY RUSSIAN last time. She is 1.5kgs better off at the weights and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. She has won once and finished third once from as many starts over this C&D. She should strip fitter and can go close. 

SIMPLY RUSSIAN won a good race in her last start over this C&D. She jumps from pole position and if repeating that effort, she should feature.

Race 7
VALIENTE has good recent form lines to her credit. He took on stronger in his last start over this distance at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. He has won twice and finished third once from five starts over this C&D. He takes a drop in class today and from his good draw, he can get back to winning ways. 

SO VAR has been taking on stronger company in recent outings. He has finished second twice and third four times from nine starts over this C&D. He continues to drop in the ratings and must be included in all bets. 

KINGS ROAD makes his way to KZN with the Clinton Binda stable. He ran a decent race when finishing fourth over this distance at the Vaal last time. He won his only attempt over this C&D and merits obvious inclusion. 

Race 8
ARCTIC PRINCESS has won her last two starts over this C&D for the Gary Rich stable. She was ridden to perfection when running on powerfully last time. The daughter of What A Winter takes another slight rise in class, but she may still be ahead of the handicapper and can notch up the hat-trick. 

ROYAL VIEW has good consistent form lines to her credit. She has won twice and finished third three times from nine starts on this course. Should the top choice fluff her lines, she may be the one to pick up the pieces. 

UMZINDUZI finished 0.6 lengths behind the second choice last time. She is 0.5kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating the pair in the run down to the line.
