GG TIPS FOR VAAL

 


Winning Form Best Bets
Race 1: DONDERWEER(6)
Race 2: IT TAKES TWO(1)
Race 3: FAIRBANKS(2)
Race 8: WONDERWALL(2)

Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 2: IT TAKES TWO(1)
Jockey: C Zackey - Trainer: G Terzi

IT TAKES TWO is coming to hand and she ran on strongly for a close 2nd over this c & d last month. The four-year old chestnut BOUTIQUE made steady headway on her fair debut on a tight circuit around the turn two weeks ago and should make natural progress. She can reverse the form with the exposed entrant WITHOUT LIMITS who has posted some useful recent form.

TOP BET
Race 3: PALACE ASSEMBLY(1)
Jockey: L Ferraris - Trainer: MG/AA Azzie

PALACE ASSEMBLY bounced right back to his best form despite traffic issues as he ran on smartly for 2nd behind the highly regarded Sacred Castle (runs in race 8) at Turffontein last month. STOCKBRIDGE could be the likely improver after the de Kock inmate had a fair debut in a competitive line-up three weeks ago.

Race 4: GLITTER PATH(3)
Jockey: K Matsunyane - Trainer: G Maroun

GLITTER PATH may have just failed to stay the mile in a competitive last event but she had a solid penultimate performance over this trip in a strong field. JOSI DI NERO had an improved last sprint in mixed company and she is bred to handle the extra furlong on her peak showing.

Race 10: PRINCE JORDAN (7)
Jockey: P Strydom - Trainer: G Maroun

The Maroun yard is well-represented in this maximum field and PRINCE JORDANcan follow up on his overdue recent triumph over further. The versatile gelding has a c & d victory to his credit. MOON WARRIOR can build on his improved last showing and he is 5kgs better off with his latest conqueror CONCEALED SECRET from the Tarry yard.

VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 1: ANNATJIE(16)
Jockey: R Danielson - Trainer: St John Gray

The Look To The Sky formline is well-represented and the speedy filly ANNATJIE was heavily supported in that contest. Of course she sweated up badly but only tired late into a creditable 5th, beaten just over three lengths at the line. She finished just under one length adrift of DONDERWEER who also debuted in that outing where this bay colt ran on late for 4th.

ATR TIPS FOR VAAL

 


Timeform pick out their three best bets from Vaal on Thursday...


#16 Stockbridge - Vaal R3 (11:15 GMT)

With the defection of At Hand it is Stockbridge who looks the one to beat. He shaped well on his belated debut(now a five-year-old) at Turffontein earlier this month and, likely to improve for that initial outing, he can get off the mark at the second attempt. Palace Assembly may prove best of the remainder, while Fairbanks shouldn't be discarded.

#1 Russian Prince - Vaal R8 (14:10 GMT)

Russian Prince arrives at the top of his game and could still have even more to offer judged by his latest success over six furlongs here last time. That was a clear career best and he should prove hard to stop in his hat-trick bid now. Dewali is feared most, while Topmast has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

#10 Roman Evening - Vaal R10 (15:20 GMT)

Roman Evening is a two-time C&D winner who didn't need to be at his best to resume winning ways at Flamingo Park last time, and he could be up to following up in what looks an open handicap. Phillydelphia is most likely the toughest threat, while Rebel Renegade could go well too.

10:05 AM - itsarush.co.za Welcomes You Juvenile Plate


RING OF FIRE has good speed but needs to keep on galloping. DONDERWEER stayed on nicely when a length in front of filly ANNATJIE (who found support) - both on debut and both will come on. Watch the many first-timers especially ABLE SURPRISE and CREATION.


Top Tip: Ring Of Fire (12)
Watch out for: Donderweer (6)
2 10:40 AM - All To Come Maiden Plate (F & M)


Of those that have raced IT TAKES TWO gets the nod. She is having her 3rd run after a rest and should be cherry-ripe. Many runners are looking to improve on debut including BOUTIQUE and BOLD ELLIE. WITHOUT LIMITS has had her chances but could take home money which brings CAPTAINS LOVE into the picture. Watch the first-timers.


Top Tip: It Takes Two (1)
Watch out for: Without Limits (2)
3 11:15 AM - Join Us For Champions Day 4 May Maiden Plate


Tricky race with many looking to improve. PALACE ASSEMBLY has been running close up and should be thereabouts again. STOCKBRIDGE showed inexperience on debut and will know more about it. FAIRBANKS hasn't been far off recently and could get into the mix. WESTERN OASIS races as a gelding now and any money must be respected. Watch first-timer TOM TOM.


Top Tip: Fairbanks (2)
Watch out for: Palace Assembly (1)
4 11:50 AM - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Maiden Plate (F & M)


JOSI DI NERO should be at peak fitness now and will make her presence felt. Stable companion CAFTAN wasn't disgraced on debut and will relish the extra. JIVE EXPRESS fared well on debut but races before this - watch the form. Many others looking for minor money including SENECA FALLS, WINNING QUEEN, GLITTER PATH and PERFECT STORM. Watch newcomer MISTRESSOFMYFATE.


Top Tip: Josi Di Nero (1)
Watch out for: Glitter Path (3)
5 12:25 PM - Book For Classic Day 0116811508 Mr 66 Apprentice Handicap


Wide open. FACE THE FIRE is finding form. After 2 improved runs could chalk up his 2nd win. READY TO STRIKE hasn't been disgraced in his post maiden runs. MANITOBA is running well but races before this - watch the form. Stable mate ROCKY PATH forms a strong back-up. TRIP TO TROY is having his peak run. REFUGE is one of many looking to take honours.


Top Tip: Horace (2)
Watch out for: Face The Fire (9)
6 1:00 PM - Join Us For The Joburg's Prawn Festival 30 March Fm 74 Handicap (F & M)


Difficult. PALE LILAC was slightly disappointing last time but was hampered by a slipped saddle. BELIEVE ME is holding form and if behaves at the start will feature. TAMMANY HALL has been running against stronger and must be considered. SERENDIPITY is holding form and should confirm with SAMMI MOOSA. FORTUNA DORO, SHELLY, GET YOUR GROVE ON and REDBERRY WOOD could earn.


Top Tip: Tammany Hall (1)
Watch out for: Pale Lilac (3)
7 1:35 PM - Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Mr 66 Apprentice Handicap


Another open event. CHEROKEE GREY should be at peak fitness and could take it. WOTTAHOTTIE is back to honest ways and could get into the shake-up. ROCKSTAR CHILD is in form and could go in again. PRIVATE RULER, SHORTSTOP, PSYCHIC and CAMEL WALK make up the short list but many are capable of popping up.


Top Tip: Shortstop (2)
Watch out for: Psychic (3)
8 2:10 PM - interbet.co.za 0861 150 160 Assessment Plate


RUSSIAN PRINCE is maturing nicely and if not troubled by breathing noises should make a bold bid. WONDERWALL has ability and could get back on track now a gelding. There should be nothing much between DEWALI, MOJITO MAGIC and TOPMAST and all are looking for money. SACRED CASTLE won in a canter on debut and could be anything. MISS PINKERTON could place.


Top Tip: Wonderwall (2)
Watch out for: Russian Prince (1)
9 2:45 PM - Supabets - 0861 76 22 37 Fm 68 Apprentice Handicap (F & M)


CHE BELLE is ready to chalk up her 2nd win. FRANKLY comes from franked form and should challenge here. PINK drops in distance and could find early form. FLORENCE wasn't disgraced in her post-maiden and could get into the mix. FLY NORTH, VISUALITY, WRITTEN and PACHANGA could get into the frame.


Top Tip: Che Bella (1)
Watch out for: Frankly (3)
10 3:20 PM - Next Vaal Racemeeting Thursday 28 February Mr 66 Handicap


BATTLE CREEK is never far back and should give a good run for money. PRINCE JORDAN is in form and could go in again. Stable companion QUATTRO disappointed last time but could get back to honest form. REBEL RENEGADE could take honours but needs to behave at the start. MANX PARK, PHILLYDELPHIA and HEYWOT are a few more to include.


Top Tip: Quattro (1)

ATR TIPS FOR SCOTTSVILLE



10:50 AM - All To Come Maiden Juvenile Plate


RING OF FIRE has fair Highveld form. He is overdue and can open his account. But he tries the track here and is carded to run on the 14th. Not much separated WAVE, CHIEF OFFICER, ROCKET RHUMBA and even IT'S HIM was not far behind in a barrier trial. All should relish the longer trip and best bet will be to see which comes for strong betting support.


Top Tip: Chief Officer (2)
Watch out for: It's Him (4)
2 11:25 AM - Rockafellas Restaurant Maiden Juvenile Plate (Fillies)


SARAH made good improvement to get into the money in her second start. Her Highveld form could be strong here and she could be hard to challenge even if trying the track. COMPASS FIRE was not far behind a highly regarded sort and could frank that form line as she has the benefit of having raced here in her last two. ROYAL SPLURGE can still improve. CLEAR HORIZONS showed.


Top Tip: Clear Horizons (2)
Watch out for: Compass Fire (3)
3 12:00 PM - Track & Ball Gaming Maiden Plate (F & M)


SAND QUEEN went up the inside on the Greyville poly last time. She was not disgraced in that race as a result and can make good improvement. She looks to have the pick of the draw. VALERIANA was caught late last time and had DANCING PRINCESS behind her. She could relish this track. CHANEL ALLURE wasn't far behind in a strong race. Consider SHE'S A CRUSADE and TWICE OVER SATIN.


Top Tip: Chanel Allure (1)
Watch out for: Dancing Princess (2)
4 12:35 PM - itsarush.co.za Maiden Plate


MR FITZ was flying in his second start. He finished a good second over this track and trip and should not go backwards. CANADIAN BOLT is overdue and has run well over a host of different trips. He could prefer the Scottsville track and now has blinkers fitted. Danger. OPENSEA tried this type of trip last time and improved. Has drawn ideally. MASTER OF THE SEA must be there.


Top Tip: Canadian Bolt (1)
Watch out for: Opensea (2)
5 1:10 PM - Blinkers Bar Fm 70 Handicap (F & M)


HELLO SUMMER made good improvement when switching from poly to this turf track last time. She can only get better and rates a big chance in her second run after rest. GREEN DRAGON didn't beat a strong field but she could only win and could relish this trip and class from a good draw. SILVER RAISIN has more to do at the weights but has drawn better. More can get into it.


Top Tip: La Bella (1)
Watch out for: Face Of An Angel (4)
6 1:50 PM - White Horse Function Room Mr 80 Handicap


WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL goes for a hat trick of wins. He is a youngster that has done little wrong and could pull it off even if he only just gets there. KINGSMEAD has finished runner up in his last three and can go one better back on turf. CUMULUS is closely matched as well and is better than his last two Scottsville tries. LESLIE SHADOWLINER is speedy and always there.


Top Tip: Buffalo Soldier (3)
Watch out for: Kingsmead (5)
7 2:25 PM - Umthombothi Stakes (Non-Black Type)


DUKE OF SPIN looked to have needed his last run and he is quickly back on turf. He is prepping for bigger races and this should be a good test. Fellow three-year-olds MARCHINGONTOGETHER and STREAM AHEAD are talented as well. The former ran a cracker in his first try at Turffontein-should be a big threat here. STREAM AHEAD is tested over the trip. More with claims.


Top Tip: Legend (1)
Watch out for: Flichity By Farr (2)
8 3:00 PM - Follow Gold Circle On Facebook Fm 60 Handicap (F & M)


Wide open. NETANYA seems to be going along the right way. If she doesn't mind the switch from the Greyville poly she should be on top of them again. BARINOIS found form last time. She has won here and has a decent draw today. SHADOW HUNTER could be worth a look after a much improved last time. Also drawn decently. LILIBET ran a nice race last. More with chances.


Top Tip: Lilibet (2)
Watch out for: Barinois (4)

ATR TIPS FOR TURFFONTEIN



2:05 PM - itsarush.co.za Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)


First race is competitive - catching the quartet should set the night up nicely. SATIN SLIPPER looks a bit better than her second start. She was racing after rest and should come on. JULEP caught the eye running on well over shorter. On pedigree she should go the trip. SAUCY BROAD is holding form and the form of her last race is strong. JUNGLE JANE and EVER FAIR must go in.


Top Tip: Julep (1)
Watch out for: Satin Slipper (14)
2 2:40 PM - All To Come Assessment Plate


Great race this Assessment Plate. Grade 1 winner MIGHTY HIGH has been gallant in defeat behind better weighted All At Once. She can make amends as she is well in again. But PALACE CHAPEL is a serious sprinter as well. He is back from the West Cape where he did not disgrace himself running fourth behind Cirillo in his first start there. More with scope.


Top Tip: Mighty High (3)
Watch out for: Palace Chapel (1)
3 3:20 PM - Join Us For Champions Day 4 May Maiden Plate


There is form in the race but many try the marathon trip here and it may be more competitive than at first glance. FLAPJACK should have won by now and the longer trip may suit so can get it right. FRENCH LEAVE has some fair runs in the bank for this company. On pedigree should stay. ADOLFO is getting better but has drawn wide in his debut this trip. STALKING can upset.


Top Tip: Adolfo (1)
Watch out for: Flapjack (2)
4 3:55 PM - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Mr 66 Handicap


It is a big field and a handicap but MANHATTAN COCKTAIL would be deserving on recent form. He should have every chance with AURORA AUSTRALIS jumping from a wider draw. WINTER CRUSADE won well enough to suggest he could be effective on handicap debut. WHAT A JOKER needed a couple of runs and is set to show more. He has drawn well this time. Watch if the reserves get in.


Top Tip: What A Joker (7)
Watch out for: Aurora Australis (2)
5 4:30 PM - Join Us For The Joburg's Prawn Festival 30 March Mr 80 Handicap


CONDOR GULCH was impressing his connections before rest. He has been off a while so could just need it. However he is carded to run on the 17th. THRONG looks to have dropped enough in ratings to make a bold bid. He has run well at this venue. JUBILEE LINE is in good form and will be the one to catch. DIVINE CONNECTION and MARCH TO GLORY seem capable of threatening.


Top Tip: Condor Gulch (1)
Watch out for: Jubilee Line (3)
6 5:05 PM - Egoli Mile (3 Year-Olds)


Nice renewal of the Egoli Mile - many have scope. SEA AIR has done little wrong so far and in fact won a sprint well even though looking for this kind of trip. The race will show how much he has to offer. PROTEA PARADISE has some decent credentials and hence carries top weight. Still must be respected.CAPTAIN OF TORTUGA must improve as he matures. He is useful. More in it.


Top Tip: Protea Paradise (1)
Watch out for: Captain Of Tortuga (2)
7 5:40 PM - Book For Classic Day 0116811508 Fm 68 Handicap (F & M)


Aptly named PRETTY BORDER won a nice race last time and could have enough in the tank to follow up. JETORIO brings fair West Cape form into the race. She should get the trip on pedigree. FLOWING GOWN has top weight but a decent draw and showed something like her best form last time. WESTERN DANCE seems capable of better. AFRICAN SUNBIRD should be in the firing line.


Top Tip: Flowing Gown (1)
Watch out for: Abelie (4)
8 6:10 PM - Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 23 February Mr 68 Handicap


POWERED BEAUTY tried a gruelling trip last time. He is a lot better than that and from draw one dropping in trip could show his mettle. RECONNAISSANCE has been running in stronger races and scored a merit hike as a result last time. He can win this but has drawn a bit wide. STORM OUTGOING ran a fair race the last time he raced here. MANITOBA and CORRIDO have claims as well.


Top Tip: Reconnaissance (1)
Watch out for: Manitoba (2)

Race 4: CANADIAN BOLT (1)
Race 7: AFFRANCH (6)

Magic Tips Best Bets
TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 2: COMPASS FIRE(3)
Jockey: S Moodley - Trainer: MD Miller

COMPASS FIRE has progressed smartly with each effort and she stayed on for a good 2nd behind the high- ly rated well supported newcomer Share Holder on this course two weeks ago. She is back facing her own sex and against maidens this time around.

Race 4: MR FITZ(10)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: S Humby

MR FITZ was completely unfancied but he took off late for a smart 2nd on his debut over this c & d in a decent field three weeks ago. The 3rd placed entrant Father's Frost had an issue when he failed next time out but this well drawn son of Bold Silvano would have come on with that experience and is entit- led to have improved. He gets the expert services of red-hot Anton Marcus.

Race 7: MARCHINGONTOGETHER(5)
Jockey: W Kennedy Trainer: C Van Zyl

The day's topliner is a non-black affair over a trip just short of ten furlongs where nine entrants head to post. The van Zyl's are extremely well represented and the above-average three-year old MARCHINGONTOGETHER could keep his 100% track record intact.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY
Race 3: DANCING PRINCESS(2)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: Y Govender

DANCING PRINCESS has consistent form and though she has a little to find with VALERIANA and CHANEL ALLURE on their recent clashes, the daughter of Gimmethegreenlight could be an entirely different proposition on her return to the capital.

Magic Tips Best Bets

TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 1: JULEP(1)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: A Laird

JULEP quickly returned to form with a strong finish for a close 4th over a mile recently and she will relish this extra furlong.

Race 2: MIGHTY HIGH(3)
Jockey: Lerena- Trainer: Janse van Vuuren

The high quality filly MIGHTY HIGH is best weighted in this assessment event on her peak showing and she can quickly return to winning ways following a good 2nd in a feature last time out.

Race 4: MANHATTAN COCKTAIL (9)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: W Marwing

The grey gelding MANHATTAN COCKTAIL has shown glimpses of his true potential in recent starts and he drops in class today. AURORA AUSTRALIS also has an affinity for this c & d and he ran on smartly for 3rd in a stronger event behind his smart stablemate Royal Italian earlier this month. He usually runs on from way back so his wide draw isn't a major issue.

Race 6: PROTEA PARADISE(1)
Jockey: G LERENA - Trainer: M DE KOCK

The recently gelded PROTEA PARADISE didn't disgrace himself in a stronger feature last month and of course the runner-up of that event, his stablemate Atyaab subsequently triumphed in the Grade 1 Cape Derby. This son of Dynasty still has good room for improvement and he could a major say on his handicap debut in this non-black type affair.

VALUE BET
Race 8: POWERED BEAUTY(5)
Jockey: J Greyling - Trainer: W Marwing

POWERED BEAUTY plainly failed to stay the marathon journey in his poor last start but had much improv- ed form prior to that, including a smart comeback run behind Defy Gravity over this c & d three starts ago.
