12:05 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

DRAGON POWER has been in the money in all five starts and should not be long in winning. KINGSTON ROCK showed pace when finishing ahead of that rival last time and with further improvement expected should be competitive again. EMPIRE GLORY has shown enough to get a look in. AUGUSTINA was gelded after his debut so is open to improvement too. Watch the betting on the newcomers.

Watch out for: EMPIRE GLORY (5)

12:45 - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Progress Plate

Top race. PLEASEDTOMEETYOU has plenty to do on at the ratings but could defy these terms over this trip after only tiring late in a 3yo feature over further last time. SPEEDPOINT and SAND AND SEA are closely matched on the form of last season's CTS 1200. Both return from rests but the latter may have more to offer after gelding. LANZA and CLIPPER CAPTAIN aren't without chances

Watch out for: SAND AND SEA (2)

13:20 - Maiden Plate

Open maiden featuring many likely improvers but the value could lie with MAGIC MIKE who acquitted himself well from the widest draw on debut. He wasn't far behind stable companion Senatla who has bolted up since. CASH CALL, LADDER MAN and TENNESSEE have all shown enough to be competitive and may have more to offer this trip. Respect HYPNOTIST, MASTER OF SPAIN and PEGA D'ORO.

13:55 - Betting World 087 741 2777 Mr 71 Handicap

Snaith-trained runners QUEST and BELGARION (stable elect with Fourie up) were maiden winners last time out. Both have plenty room for further improvement and should go well on handicap debut. KZN maiden winner CALIENTE should also have more to offer. MEGA SECRET and CYBER LAW are capable of making their presence felt at this level. Frontrunner BRANDENBURG has claims too.

Top Tip: CYBER LAW (2)
Watch out for: CALIENTE (5)

14:25 - Play Soccer 6, 10 And 13 Progress Plate (F & M)

Speedy TEMPLE GRAFIN lost nothing in defeat when 2nd in a 1400m Grade 2 behind classy Clouds Unfold. She was a feature winner over 1200m trip as a 2yo so should enjoy reverting to this trip on favourable terms. MISS KATALIN is well in and should pose the biggest threat. SUGAR GIRL can turn the tables on DYNAMIC DIANA over this trip and on these terms. NOUS VOILA can earn too.

Watch out for: DYNAMIC DIANA (2)

14:55 - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Fm 92 Divided Handicap (F & M)

RAYA BAYA has turned a corner in blinkers and will have more to offer an eye-catching comeback run when finishing ahead of DYNASTY'S BLOSSOM, who should also strip fitter. TALITHA BORELAIS and RUBYANA are closely matched on form - both warrant respect. FOXY PRINCESS and EXPEDITE try further and could feature if effective this trip. LOVE SUPREME and BARONESS MARY will be there.

Watch out for: RAYA BAYA (2)

15:25 - 0861 150 160 Fm 71 Divided Handicap (F & M)

Tricky. SUMMER MOON has been threatening to win again but must negotiate a wide draw. She renews rivalry with SYMPHONY on 1kg better terms so there should be little between the pair, although the latter's only outing over this trip left a lot to be desired. ANGEL OF ATHENS and CAVALLERIA are capable of contesting the outcome but jump on terms to do so. BLUE FLOWER tries 2000m?

Top Tip: SUMMER MOON (2)
Watch out for: SYMPHONY (3)

15:55 - Next Meeting Kenilworth 21 November 2018 Maiden Plate (F & M)

MERKABA and SPARKELING FIRE (if taking her place) have shown enough to be competitive but both have tough tasks overcoming wide starting berths. DANCING FOR RAIN has improved since going ground and could trouble the judge too. However, PRINCESS IRENE has most scope trying this trip and, with improvement expected, could get it right and leave the maiden ranks behind her.

Top Tip: MERKABA (4)
Watch out for: PRINCESS IRENE (5)
