12:25 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

SUPERSTITIOUS made good improvement last time, but field may have been weak. ENGAGE AND BEWARE made a promising debut, and must be respected with Marcus up again. HERODOTUS had excuses last time, and has to go close again. VIKRAM made a good debut behind a highly rated sort, and can be expected to improve. Plenty others with form in a strong looking maiden.

Watch out for: SUPERSTITIOUS (2)

13:00 - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Maiden Plate (F & M)

Five year old mare RIVER DELTA was second on the Fairview poly a fortnight ago on debut, but this is tougher. HEAVEN'S EMBRACE is impeccably bred, and has Marcus up. Respect. MINONA stayed on well here a few weeks ago, and should improve. Big contender. Watch the betting on other debutantes SILVER DAZZLE and SNAPSCAN

Watch out for: RIVER DELTA (1)

13:35 - Book Your Place At Matchem Stake - 6 October Maiden Plate

METROPOLITAN stands out on form in this weak field, and has every chance of staying the extra. If so will take some beating. Stable mate PARADE OF NATIONS is limited, but stays well and can earn. Expensive yearling LET ME LOVE YOU made a reasonable debut over 2000m, and if improving could be a big contender here.

Watch out for: PARADE OF NATIONS (2)

14:10 - Betting World 087 741 2777 Fm 92 Handicap (F & M)

CASUAL DIAMOND flopped in KZN, but has top form in Cape Town, and significantly Fourie rides. Include. Rested STILL I RISE is an enigma, but if in the mood can shock. HONEY SUITE has done little wrong, but has been off for a year. SHAMROCK WIND is an exciting youngster, and better than her post maiden effort. Respect. OSTINATO, REBEL'S SPIRIT and REGAL RUBY have chances too.

Watch out for: OSTINATO (2)

14:50 - Potjie Competition - 6 October At Durbanville Mr 74 Handicap

JOHNNY BLACK won well here recently, and can go in again. BELLINGHAM BAY is held on that, but suspect can do a lot better, and has far stronger rider. ROYAL MARINE is holding form, and carries a very low weight. Rested WESTERN STORM is another to consider.

Watch out for: WESTERN STORM (2)

15:25 - Settlers Trophy Mr 94 Handicap

HEMMINGWAY never runs badly, and seems best this trip. Will be right there. There should be little between him and JAILHOUSE ROCK on their last meeting. ZEB has won his last two, and while up in class must be respected. They may all have to bow to sole three-year-old CHARLES though. He was third to a potential superstar in the Langerman, and with a mere 52kg will take catching.

Top Tip: MAC DE LAGO (1)
Watch out for: HEMMINGWAY (2)

16:00 - Jockey Chase - 6 October At Durbanville Fm 81 Handicap (F & M)

The three three-year-olds could dominate this. FRONT AND CENTRE was a fluent debut winner, and form has worked out. The one to beat. Fellow youngsters STRAWBERRY WINE and rested GO THE DISTANCE also look above average though and receive weight. Intriguing. PERFECT PROPORTIONS and course specialist QUEEN MOIRA look best of the elders. KNOW THE ROPES has chance at best.

Top Tip: OMEGA FORCE (4)

16:35 - Next Race Meeting Durbanville 6 October 2018 Mr 74 Handicap

MAJESTIC MOZART was a fluent debut winner, and suspect has a lot more to come. Looks hard to oppose. Fellow sophomore BUNKER HUNT is also very useful, but may struggle to concede 2kg. GRAND SILVANO, FLASH TWICE, and SALTORO RIDGE all have a shout if the two improvers fluff their lines.

Top Tip: BUNKER HUNT (2)
Watch out for: GRAND SILVANO (3)
