11:15 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

KELLOHOLM LAD has been close up in all 5 starts to date and deserves a victory. TUDOR MANOR has 2 lengths to find with him on their recent meeting but the difference in draws could count. TYCOON showed up well on debut and will come on with the experience. LITHUANIAN'S DREAM is starting to show while IT MUST BE FATE could improve heaps as a gelding. Watch newcomers.

Top Tip: TUDOR MANOR (8)
Watch out for: KELLOHOLM LAD (7)

11:50 - All To Come Assessment Plate (F & M)

At this stage of her career LA LUCIA may have found the trip a touch too far last time but should be thereabouts here. NAUTIC SPIRIT never enjoyed the Polytrack last time but loves it here and could resume winning ways. STRAWBERRY PAVLOVA is well above average and will be catching late. SALLY CALLED is on the up and could win fresh. WRAP IT UP and FREE AND EASY could place.

Watch out for: STRAWBERRY PAVLOVA (1)

12:25 - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Maiden Plate (F & M)

Competitive. PACHANGA and BULLSADE have been threatening for ages and a victory is overdue for either. DREAM ON was somewhat fancied on debut and wasn't disgraced. Look for big improvement. ELUSIVE CORAL showed huge improvement in her 2nd start and reversed it with stable mate VEGA VOX who pulled up distressed last time. Watch first timers especially SOMEONE'S SECRET.

Top Tip: PACHANGA (2)
Watch out for: BULLSADE (1)

13:00 - Grand Heritage 29 September Fm 72 Handicap (F & M)

OPERETTA followed up her maiden victory with a fluent win and could go on and complete a hat-trick. COLOMBINA has held form in both post maiden runs and shouldn't be far off again. LAST GIRL STANDING needed her last run and is ready to earn again. ESPLORATORE has been running close up and could get into the mix again. GOLD DAWN needed her last outing.

Watch out for: OPERETTA (5)

13:35 - Betting World - 087 741 2777 Fm 81 Handicap (F & M)

CELESTINA is in form. She races before this and if takes her place could win. Stable companion LA BASTIDE is no slouch but could just need it. PEPPERMINT TEA bounced back to best with an easy victory last time and could follow up. INYANGA is 3,5kg better off with CELESTINA for 2,7 lengths and has a chance to turn it around. AN AIR OF SUCCESS and KIRKCONNEL LASS could feature.

Watch out for: CELESTINA (3)

14:15 - Book For The Grand Heritage 011 6811508 Mr 90 Handicap

PREMIER SHOW has come to form now and could turn it around with ISPHAN on 2,5kg difference. COPPER JAY is holding form and should be in the shake-up again. SINGING IN SEATTLE found top form last time and could go in again. BRIGTNUMBERTEN, GREASEPAINT, WHORLY WHORLY, PILLAROFTHEEARTH and DONNY G could pop up.

Watch out for: ISPHAN (3)

14:55 - - 0861 150 160 Mr 68 Handicap

SOVEREIGN REIGN is running well and should go close again, however, on their meeting in May HIDEAWAY comes into the picture being 3,5kg better off for 1,5 lengths. SEVENTH RULE is a strong front runner but needs to keep on galloping. Recent maiden winners KISSMEINMYDREAMS and SHANGHAI PIERCE meet stronger but could get into the mix again. Others are looking for minor money.

Watch out for: SEVENTH RULE (5)

15:30 - Supabets - 0861 76 22 37 Mr 68 Handicap

This is not a strong field and in form NORLAND should have this field stone cold. SLEEPINSEATTLE (1kg better) needs to make up over 3 lengths and could battle. The fight for minor money looks tricky. PRIVATE RULER could atone. SAVANNAH KING races as a gelding for the first time and warrants respect. Many others could pop up.

Top Tip: NORLAND (2)
Watch out for: PRIVATE RULER (7)

16:05 - Next Vaal Racemeeting Thursday 23 August Maiden Plate

FESTIVE LINNGARI has his best career chance of getting out the maidens in this moderate line up. Only other serious runner should be SKIMINAC who possibly has the winning form but has been out of action for nearly 7 months. TRUMPS TRIUMPH and MAN IN MOTION could make most improvement over the extra.

Top Tip: SKIMINAC (1)
Watch out for: FESTIVE LINNGARI (2)
