 11:25 - Racing. It's A Rush Work Riders' Maiden Plate SPY has come on after gelding and should be prominent here. RIKERS ISLAND has been close-up in both starts after a break and will be competitive again. CRADLEOFGRATITUDE has earning potential too but a bigger threat could from newcomers DOUBLE SHOT, GRAVITATION and ROCKIN' RINGO. Watch the betting!

Watch out for: SPY (2)

12:00 - Christmas Market At Kenilworth 15th Dec Pinnacle Stakes Frontrunner MILTON is well treated by conditions and is race fit so can spring a surprise if effective this trip. Snaith-trained STRATHDON is progressive and runs well fresh so should be in the thick of it. Stable companions MADE TO CONQUER and ELUSIVE SILVA are back from successful KZN campaigns. Both are likely to need the run but should be competitive on these terms.

Watch out for: ELUSIVE SILVA (1)

12:30 - Maiden Plate (F & M) Wide open. None of these inspires any confidence so go wide in the exotics. BIG SUZE showed improvement over this trip and with further progress canget into the mix. The same applies to COUNT DUBUCKS who caught the eye whenrunning on shorter. ELUSIVE FORTUNE and TROU AUX BICHES have roles to play too. HERCULES GIRL wears alumites and will be ridden by top jock Marcus. Watch

Top Tip: DAY TRIP (1)
Watch out for: ELUSIVE FORTUNE (3)

13:10 - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Progress Plate (3-Year-Old Fillies) CORAL BAY beat SANTA CLARA twice last season but finished behind that rival last time and will struggle to reverse that form on these terms. Last-start maiden winners STAR IN THE SKY and SILVANO'S PRIDE have scope for improvement, but the latter makes most appeal after her dominant all-the-way success over track and trip.

Top Tip: CORAL BAY (1)
Watch out for: SANTA CLARA (3)

13:45 - Cape Merchants (Grade 2) (Handicap) Top race. DUTCH PHILIP, KASIMIR and SAND AND SEA renew rivalry after meeting in last season's CTS 1200 over track and trip. All three would have improved from pleasing comeback runs (after rest and gelding) so should be in the shake-up. VAN HALEN impressed on his comeback and is dangerous under 52kg, as is smart improver VALBONNE. Both SEARCH PARTY and BISHOP'S BOUNTY can earn.

Watch out for: KASIMIR (9)

14:28 - CTS Ready To Run Stakes (3 Year-Olds) CIRILLO and MAJESTIC MOZART meet again after eye-catching efforts in a Grade 3 last time. Both have the class to be competitive but have wide draws. CAPTAINOFTHESEA made all (1200m) when refitted with blinkers recently and can stake a claim if repeating over this trip. CROWN GUARDIAN and VASCOSTREETTRACTOR will have more to offer after prep sprints - value lies with the former.

Watch out for: CIRILLO (1)

15:03 - Concorde Cup (Grade 2) (3 Year-Olds) Formerly known as the Selangor, this newly named Grade 2 is the traditional Guineas trial which always attracts a smart bunch. Top-rated CHIMICHURI RUN could be vulnerable over this trip but has earning potential on these terms. TWIST OF FATE impressed on his comeback and should go well again, but we have not seen the best of unbeaten ONE WORLD who is very hard to oppose.

Watch out for: ONE WORLD (2)

15:30 - Mr 78 Handicap GIMME ONE NIGHT races fresh after a break off the same rating he did when last winning and this drop in class should see him go well. PACIFIC CHESTNUT has been in good form so cannot be overlooked. PADDINGTON and THE SILVA FOX are better than disappointing recent efforts. ROOM AT THE TOP and TROOP THE COLOUR have been holding their own and can get a look in. Respect MAGIC MARY.

Watch out for: GIMME ONE NIGHT (2)

16:05 - R7,5m G-Bets Summer Cup P6 Pool Maiden Plate ALL IN LINE has been close-up in recent starts despite wide draws so will be competitive with blinkers now fitted. He's closely matched with improving ST VLADIMIR who is likely to be in the mix again. CELESTIAL PRINCE was on the heels of the latter last time and with blinkers on can make his presence felt again. Include RETRO EFFECT, STAR OF ZEUS and SWIFT SURPRISE in Quartets.

Top Tip: ALL IN LINE (5)
Watch out for: ST VLADIMIR (6)
