10:30 AM - Happy Festive Season From Racing It's A Rush Maiden Juvenile Plate

RING OF FIRE was narrowly beaten on debut and should know more about it. Watch the first-timers especially filly EMERALD TIARA.

Top Tip: THE KRAKEN (12)
Watch out for: RING OF FIRE (8)
211:05 AM - All To Come Maiden Plate (F & M)

HARTLEYFIVE is bred for further but shows good speed. After finishing runner-up in both starts could go one better. PACHANGA drops back to a sprint and could get into the action. ROYAL FUTURE is improving and could make the frame. GLACIER GIRL showed huge improvement in her 2nd start and could go on. TARGARYEN GEM is never far off. UNDISCOVERED GEM should improve on debut.

Top Tip: PACHANGA (7)
Watch out for: ROYAL FUTURE (6)
311:40 AM - Tab Telebet - 0861 000 822 Assessment Plate

AMERICAN HUSTLE has come well and could complete a hat-trick. OLD MAN TYME is 3kg better than AMERICAN HUSTLE for 3 lengths and shouldn't turn it around. BILLY SILVER races in his new surroundings after a rest and gelding - well in at the weights. CAPTAIN OF TORTUGA is down in trip but could get into the mix. FITZWILLIAM was supported in a Graded race last time, and now gelded

Watch out for: AMERICAN HUSTLE (2)
412:20 PM - Mr 88 Handicap

MARDI GRAS is arguably best this trip, and undefeated this course. Still seems well ahead of the handicapper, and looks hard to beat. PURPLE DIAMOND looks the main danger. He finished well when put back sprinting last time, and may have found his true calling. BIG MISTAKE and STATE TROOPER make most appeal of the balance.

Watch out for: MARDI GRAS (2)
512:55 PM - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Assessment Plate (F & M)

I LIKE IT almost won the Fillies Mile two runs back, and has scored both of her wins here. The one to beat if at best. Top weight AURELIA COTTA has been consistent of late, and will be there again. TAMARINA, JENNY MCGEE and GREENER PASTURES are others to consider.

Top Tip: TAMARINA (6)
Watch out for: AURELIA COTTA (1)
61:25 PM - Betting World - 087 741 2777 Mr 75 Handicap

Tough handicap, but BIEN VENUE a tentative choice. Was outclassed in the Dingaans, but best juvenile form would put him in the frame here. DARKEST HOUR is always thereabouts, and has to go in. AWAKENING and SAVANNAH KING both won latest comfortably, while JUBILEE LINE and NEPHRITE can upset.

Watch out for: SAVANNAH KING (8)
72:00 PM - Have A Safe And Happy New Year Fm 72 Handicap (F & M)

Wide open. OH MERCY ME has each way prospects, as he thrives this course and distance. QUEBEC QUEEN and RUBY DANCER have both done enough to be involved. FLOWING GOWN, QUEEN MOIRA, and WAITY KATIE, INTHEPURPLERAIN, and MY DREAM CHASER have chances as well.

Top Tip: OH MERCY ME (7)
Watch out for: WAITY KATIE (3)
82:35 PM - Next Vaal Racemeeting Thursday 3 January Maiden Plate (F & M)

Four stand out. NOW YOU SEE ME has been close up here in her last two, and has obvious claims. Well bred AFRICAN DAISY finished well on debut though, and suspect will be too good. JOLLY JOSEPHINE also looks sure to pick up a race soon. MINONA has done enough to be there as well.

Top Tip: NOW YOU SEE ME (5)
Watch out for: AFRICAN DAISY (10)
