12:35 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

TRIPPI'S EXPRESS was a clear 2nd on debut behind an exciting prospect and should have more to offer with the benefit of that experience. The 3rd-place finisher has since franked that form by trotting up in his next start. HEY BOY has also run well behind subsequent winners in his previous outings, so could pose the biggest threat. Watch the betting on newcomer SPRING BURST.

Top Tip: SPY (1)
Watch out for: FLYING ARROW (2)

13:10 - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Plate

Good maiden. ALL IN LINE has shown ability in both starts and shouldn't be long in winning, but his wide draw is a concern. The progress of Trippi's Express in Race 1 should provide a guide to the chances of likely improver GREEN JACKET. All of NAO FAZ MAL, RUN TO DENMARK and ST VLADIMIR have shown promise and should have more to offer going this trip so must be included too.

Top Tip: INERTIA (1)
Watch out for: THE PEACEMAKER (2)

13:45 - Maiden Plate (F & M)

Tricky start to the Pick 6 with the principals drawn awkwardly. NASTERGAL should improve markedly over this trip and is preferred to DOUBLED OVER who has the experience but less scope. VOMANDLA disappointed last time and has a wide draw to overcome but should be competitive. TRAP QUEEN should promise on debut and can maker her presence felt if fit after a rest. Watch BIG SUZE!

Top Tip: ROCKET GIRL (2)
Watch out for: DOUBLED OVER (3)

14:15 - Betting World 087 741 2777 Mr 68 Handicap

Open. MOON ROCK ticks the boxes here - he runs well for jockey Fourie, has course-and-distance experience and is in good form. MERAKI has bounced back after a gelding and should make his presence felt at this level. PARA HANDY tends to find a few better but should be dangerous over this trip. CYBER LAW, CAPTAINOFTHESEA and HARVEST WIND are all capable of staking a claim too.

Top Tip: MERAKI (1)
Watch out for: MOON ROCK (4)

14:50 - Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Middle Stakes

Small but competitive line-up and a lot will be determined by the pace at which this race is run. Likely pacesetter THE SILVA FOX could be hard to peg back under a 2,5kg claimer and is weighted to confirm recent form over GIANT FLAG. However, PARISIAN GOLD should pose more of a threat on these terms. GIMME ONE NIGHT is proven in better company and should make a bold winning bid

Watch out for: GIMME ONE NIGHT (2)

15:25 - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Pinnacle Stakes

TEVEZ has been acquitting himself well in similar contests recently and is weighted to win, although it remains to be seen how he fares on track debut. FIFTY CENTS runs well fresh and is unbeaten at the venue, so must be respected. OLYMPIAN and stable companion VINCENTE ran well at this level last time and should be competitive again. BERNIE is not without a chance either.

Top Tip: TEVEZ (1)
Watch out for: FIFTY CENTS (2)

16:05 - 0861 150 160 Fm 68 Handicap (F & M)

FAVOLA fluffed her lines last time but is better than that run suggests and could bounce back. SUNSHINE LADY, closely matched with CHINA WOLF, should pose a threat to the top weight on earlier form. SECRETARIAT'S GIRL, FLOWEROF CARMEL and GIMME KATRINA all have earning potential. Speedy RACINE returnsfrom a break and may be well treated on handicap debut. Doesn't end there...

Top Tip: FAVOLA (1)
Watch out for: SECRETARIAT'S GIRL (2)

16:40 - Next Race Meeeting Durbanville 11 September 2018 Maiden Plate

VASCOSTREETTRACTOR caught the eye on debut and should have more to offer with the benefit of that experience over a more suitable trip. CARLAS MAMBO went close to shedding his maiden tag last time and should be competitive again despite a wide draw. He is preferred to stable companions ORANGE BITTERS and QUEST who are both bred to be useful. TIPPU TIB and SACRED NIGHT can earn.

Watch out for: SACRED NIGHT (3)
