9:40 AM - Greyville Convention Centre Maiden Plate

Box clever at Greyville and you can win big - two good feature races to come as well. TRISTFUL showed potential in his sprint debut after a barrier trial. He is bred to relish the longer trip. BANK ROBBER made a fair debut upcountry and jumps from a good draw. He should make a good impression in this. BLACK DEVON has a better draw today and can get into it. More can show.

Top Tip: BANK ROBBER (8)

210:10 AM - Gold Circle Racing Youtube Channel Playlist Maiden Plate

Highveld raider MAHOGANY BOND was a fair fourth in a race that has produced good subsequent form. He has drawn ideally on his local debut. MOKOKO has shown promise and had things go wrong last time. He can make a race of it. SOLSBURY HILL wasn't doing badly before rest. He does have a wide draw and may just need it. COLDHARDCASH and TELLITTOTHEGODS can improve.

Top Tip: MOKOKO (8)

310:40 AM - Racing. It's A Rush Mr 80 Handicap

CHANTYMAN is back at Greyville but on the turf. He ran well at Scottsville and has the best of the draw so should make them run. ALPINE GLACIER is a fair Highveld sprinter. Drawn alongside CHANTYMAN and should have every chance. MUTAWAARY produced a powerful finish last and could still be on the up. MISS FRANKEL is talented and needs to be watched. More in it.

411:10 AM - Call Telebet Track & Ball Fixed Odds On 031 314 1155 Maiden Plate

CANADIAN BOLT is overdue and runs as if he is looking for the slightly longer trip. He can get it right. JET LIGNITE was moving well just behind the former and has scope for improvement as well. But has drawn wide. KING'S COVE was a close second this track and trip improving on a fair third prior. Be right there. HAND ON HEART is coming along steadily.

511:40 AM - Durban View Restaurant Mr 80 Handicap

THANKSGIVING is back after running a gallant second in the Dingaans. He has been given a higher rating as a result but may still be under rated as he is strengthening up and must get better. TIERRA DEL FUEGO is learning as well and not doing badly. He carries 5,5kg less than the feature runner and has a say. SUBTROPICAL and HIGH GREEN are hardy enough to earn.

Watch out for: THANKSGIVING (1)
612:20 PM - Christmas Handicap (Listed)

The Christmas Handicap could go to ARCTICA on form. He has finished close up in big races upcountry and if taking to the track could be hard to peg back. DARK MOON RISING will be at his peak in his third run after rest and would be deserving of a feature like this. MATADOR MAN is back at his best track and not one to take lightly. ROY HAD ENOUGH is a bit of an enigma.

Top Tip: MATADOR MAN (2)
Watch out for: ARCTICA (4)
71:00 PM - Flamboyant Stakes (Grade 3) (Fillies And Mares)

ARIANOS SHADOW is in good form and the youngster has shown the versatility to be able to win a race like this. Add to that a decent draw. But FORT EMBER has won some grand races here and has some strong credentials upcountry as well. She has drawn alongside and has a big say. ROY'S RIVIERA didn't enjoy it at all last time-capable. TWICE AS SMART could relish this trip.

Watch out for: FORT EMBER (1)
81:35 PM - Mr 88 Handicap

GRADUATE caught the eye after quite a layoff. He is a well bred sort and lightly raced so could have much to come. EXCLUSIVE QUANTITY looked dangerous last time and may not dislike the rise in class as he carries a lighter weight. Q THE MUSIC is in good form and he should contest this finish as well. WHITEHAVEN tries the track and trip and may prefer it.

Top Tip: GRADUATE (5)
Watch out for: Q THE MUSIC (1)
92:10 PM - Download The Tabgold Information App Mr 72 Handicap

BRAVO BRAVO jumped a bit slow but flew up to win his last start. He can follow up as he has an even better draw even if it is tougher. TORIO LAKE has not been far off upcountry and could relish this level of competition. He has the best of the draw. FIELDMARSHAL FENIX drops a few points in merit rating and could get closer. TRIPPLE EXPLOSION is capable and just needed it.

Top Tip: BRAVO BRAVO (2)
Watch out for: FIELDMARSHAL FENIX (3)
102:45 PM - Gold Circle Podcast Mr 72 Handicap

ULTRA BOOST won readily in his first local try. He only just got there so there could have been something in hand. Follow. PLAY THE NIGHT is knocking at the door and may enjoy the less frantic nature of this slightly longer trip. GOOD RHYTHM has done little wrong and could prefer the turf track again. He needs to settle in his races. JET STREAM and MASHARI can earn.

Watch out for: ULTRA BOOST (6)
