12:15 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

Competitive start. CONSUL OF WAR has improved after gelding and runs well fresh, so could play a leading role. CARLTON HEIGHTS, RETRO EFFECT and SWIFT SURPRISE have shown enough to feature but wide gates to overcome. SENATLA should also improve after a pleasing debut, so must be respected. MAGIC MIKE and MERCURANA make most appeal of the newcomers.

Top Tip: CONSUL OF WAR (1)
Watch out for: CARLTON HEIGHTS (2)

12:55 - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Plate (F & M)

CANTATA won't be long in winning after finishing 2nd in both starts and the step up to 1400m could also be to her liking. She could be worth opposing, however, with well-related MADONNA who caught the eye on debut over a trip thought to be short of her best. Improving CAPTAIN'S CHOICE has claims but is drawn wide, so DANCING SALLY and newcomer HERCULES GIRL are preferred.

Watch out for: FAYE (4)

13:35 - Mr 72 Handicap

REDIAL made an eye-catching comeback from a lengthy layoff when slowly away before running on strongly over shorter, and the extra 200m with that run under the belt should suit. FLASH TWICE and MERAKI have rediscovered their form off similar marks, so could pose a threat, but others including KALAHARI NINJA, WHAT A SUMMER and unexposed BOUNTIFUL STRENGTH could feature too.

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

Open. Both STILL I RISE and HONEY SUITE had been off the racetrack for a lengthy period of time but showed no signs of rustiness on their returns in a similar contest recently, and with improved fitness should go well again. SAMSARA was outclassed in a Grade 3 over further last time but should fare better here. TOWNSHIP MELODY and SEQUINED are also capable of getting a look in.

Watch out for: TOWNSHIP MELODY (3)

14:50 - Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Mr 88 Handicap

BWANA and TOP OF THE CLASS were promising sprinters with useful form before being gelded. That unkind 'cut' has worked a treat, though, as they have taken their form to new and improved heights. Both are still relatively unexposed and could improve further to fight out the finish. POWER GRID, PRINCE ALFRED and WHAT A WINNER are capable on their day.

Top Tip: POWER GRID (1)
Watch out for: BWANA (3)

15:25 - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Mr 76 Handicap

BENJAN has acquitted himself well in stronger races recently and off higher ratings. The drop in class and 2,5kg claim also works in his favour, so he is hard to oppose. WOODLAND'S FOREST and PADDINGTON are capable stayers with earning potential, but consistent veteran JUDDERING ANGEL could prove best of the rest on current form.

Top Tip: BENJAN (1)
Watch out for: WOODLAND'S FOREST (2)

16:00 - 0861 150 160 Maiden Plate (F & M)

DEPECHE turned the tables on SPARKELING FIRE over 1600m last time but has stamina doubts and unlikely to confirm. The latter has no such issues and could improve sufficiently with blinkers on to score an overdue maiden win. Well-related LET ME LOVE YOU could also have more to offer with headgear fitted. MERKABA and GREY MISTRESS are closely matched and not without a chance.

Top Tip: DEPECHE (1)
Watch out for: LET ME LOVE YOU (2)

16:35 - Next Race Meeting Durbanville 23 October Fm 77 Handicap (F & M)

Wide open - Quartets are a must. PEARL JAM has run well in two comeback starts over shorter and the extra 200m will be right up her alley, despite an 11 draw. FOXY PRINCESS is closely matched with that rival but untried over this trip. RUBYANA and ANGEL OF ATHENS have been running well at this level and should be competitive again. SUMMER MOON and EVERDENE have claims too.

Top Tip: PEARL JAM (1)
Watch out for: RUBYANA (2)
