14:40 - SNA Consulting Engineers Maiden Plate (F & M)

OTTAWA should be hard to beat if taking to the poly. She has good form round the Turffontein Inside Track over this trip and is not meeting a strong field. CAPTAINS LOVE is doing well compared to her earlier form. She could get closer in this. REDEEM THE GOLD was supported last time and showed good pace prior. She must be considered from a good draw.

Top Tip: OTTAWA (1)
Watch out for: WISHFUL WORDS (4)

15:20 - L G Panel Beaters Maiden Plate

ROCKET FIRE found his last race short and so was not disgraced in running a close up third. He has a decent draw and should improve on his earlier poly try. THE MASTER found his stable mate too good in his debut proper and can go one better and boost that form line. MOKOKO has shown promise but hasn't drawn well as he did last time. Still must be there. PANTSULA has a say.

15:55 - Royal Tobacconist Qualified Maiden Plate (F & M)

ELUSIVE DIVA has been costly to follow but as she has stopped over further perhaps this slightly shorter trip will suit better. FLORENCE made good improvement in her second local start. She has a much better today than in those previous races and she could prove a big threat. CROWN CHARKA has run her best races here and needs to find a little more to win. Consider MAPLEWOOD.

Watch out for: LILIBET (2)

16:30 - Dataworld Maiden Plate

Not a lot of form to go on and perhaps it will be wise to go wide in the exotic bets. JUST DIXIT has not done badly in his three visits to the track. He had valid excuses last time and after rest and gelding could be better. BORN TO PERFORM is beautifully bred and could be the one with big improvement to come after a fair trial. DR HENRY, ALFIERI, PRINCE ARDENT can do it.

Top Tip: DR HENRY (1)
Watch out for: PRINCE ARDENT (2)

17:05 - Rosehill Insurance Brokers Maiden Plate (F & M)

SWEET PRESERVE showed her best form last time only beaten a neck. She can get it right in her third run after rest. COUNTER FATE has run some fair races on this surface and perhaps the longer trip will see her get in the firing line. SUMMER DAY is also improving steadily and tries cheekpieces this time. LA DUCHESSE has a plum draw and could pop up in this.

Watch out for: SUMMER DAY (7)

17:35 - Edison Power Mr 66 Handicap

SECRET DYNASTY is getting stronger and better. He won by a street last time and while this is a tougher race he could be up to the task and more. BANJO ON MY KNEE is another youngster that has shown fair form. He was not disgraced at Scottsville last time. BIG SI looked dangerous last time and will be hunting hard again. STOP AND STARE and SOUTH PAW are capable.

Watch out for: BANJO ON MY KNEE (6)

18:05 - Ava Road Transport Mr 66 Handicap

CUDUIARI races for a stable in tremendous form at the moment. He rounded his form with a good second last time even though losing ground. Can get on terms this time. DON'T LOOK BACK is a fair youngster who if not needing it could follow up. IDEAL DUEL is knocking at the door and could get one off the males here. STORM RULER is looking for a hat trick of wins.

Top Tip: DON'T LOOK BACK (1)
Watch out for: IDEAL DUEL (2)

18:35 - Independent Minds Pinnacle Stakes (F & M)

VICTORY TRIP can score after running two seconds in a row. This is a stronger race. VAL-LA-REE is very talented and she deserves another go on the poly after fluffing her lines her a few runs back. PETRA is another youngster with ability. She showed form in her Barrier Trial. KATEECADOR and ZARNITSA cannot be taken lightly.

Top Tip: VAL-LA-REE (1)
Watch out for: KATEECADOR (2)

19:05 - Rotary Club Of Durban Morningside Mr 72 Handicap

RED SHIFT ran on too late and was beaten in a close call. He can make amends here. This is his third run after rest. TIGER'S BOND impressed over further but has improved nicely in blinkers and must be taken seriously. BIG KING loves this track and will make it a true test of speed. PLAY THE NIGHT could be better on the poly. Include reserve ROBBERG EXPRESS if gets in.

Top Tip: BIG KING (1)
Watch out for: TIGER'S BOND (2)
