10:10 - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

Good race to start. JONATHAN attracted money in both starts to date but has been rested and gelded. Watch for good improvement. DANCING FLAME finished just behind him and should go well. Stable mate LAPTOP WIZARD has been running close up and could earn. PALACE ASSEMBLY showed improved form in blinkers and should be in the shake-up. MOJITO MAGIC could find true form.

Watch out for: JONATHAN (9)

10:40 - WSB Grand Series Match Race 8 December Maiden Plate (F & M)

KIR was backed on debut when not disgraced and the form has been franked. She will relish the extra. ISOVAR is back over a better distance and should be competitive. SHEZAHOTTI ran below best last time and could get into the mix. GREY MISSILE needed her last outing and will improve. Look for improvement from AZEEZA.

Top Tip: ISOVAR (6)
Watch out for: GREY MISSILE (1)

11:10 - Betting World - 087 741 2777 Maiden Plate

Difficult to assess. Stable companions PROPOSITION (now a gelding) and SHANGHAI TANG come off lengthy lay-offs but take on a moderate bunch. Watch the betting. PAUSED disappointed last time but has a serious chance on his penultimate. ENTER THE DRAGON ran below par last time and should do better. GLITTER PATH and TAKATUL could make the frame.

Watch out for: PAUSED (5)

11:40 - Bet On Soccer 6 Assessment Plate

GREEK FIRE needed his first run as a gelding and is well in at the weights.He should make a bold bid. Year younger SAINTS ALIVE is no slouch and is in receipt of 3,kg. She rates a lively threat. POLAR ICE comes off a long break but could get into the trifecta. GOLDEN LION and PHILOS are looking for minor money.

Top Tip: GREEK FIRE (1)
Watch out for: SAINTS ALIVE (3)

12:10 - Family Fun Day Vaal 8 December Mr 69 Handicap

WONDEROUS CLIMBER bounced back to best last time. He tries this distance now and should come out trumps. The battle for minor money looks wide open. After 2 seconds in a row VILLAGE DEEP is looking to capitalise if the Tarry runner flops his lines. KING'S DRIVE, TAPENZEE, SAMAR and GENTLEMAN ONLY could get into the frame.

Watch out for: TAPENZEE (4)

12:45 - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Fm 67 Handicap (F & M)

Open. Top weight EMPRESS VALLEY should be at peak fitness and could resume winning ways. PURDEY needs to confirm her last win when beating SEEKING GOLD, stable mate ANIMAL LOVER as well as IL MONDO but it could get close all around. GLAMOROUS SCANDAL races in her new surroundings and will stay the distance. BLUE SAGE could be the roughie in the pack.

Watch out for: GLAMOROUS SCANDAL (4)

13:20 - Tab Telebet - 0861 000 822 Fm 76 Handicap (F & M)

Competitive. REDBERRY WOOD has been running on nicely and the extra should suit. GOTTALOTTALUV is back over her best trip and must be respected. LITTLEWOOD is running close up and should be thereabouts again. PRETTY BALLERINA is holding form and could pick up a cheque. NEW ZEALAND tries a marathon distance and with ITSMYDARLIN as well as EMERALD BAY could earn.

Watch out for: LITTLEWOOD (4)

14:00 - Meet Santa Claus Vaal 8 December Mr 76 Handicap

Difficult. RAGOON never got into it last time but should be given another chance. DARKEST HOUR is running well and should be thereabouts again but with HAKEEM have wide draws to overcome. Top weight WHOSETHEBOSSNOW should be at peak fitness and must be considered. CORRIDO and STORM OUTGOING are more for the short list.

Watch out for: HAKEEM (2)

14:40 - Next Vaal Racemeeting Saturday 8 December Mr 72 Handicap

VARIMAX has come well and won this track and trip in his only try. He could double up. SOVEREIGN REIGN is holding form and should be thereabouts again. TORIO LAKE shouldn't be far behind him on collateral form. NORLAND has a shout if sound. BOLD COAST has a big weight to shoulder but could take it. Others with chances.

Top Tip: VARIMAX (5)
Watch out for: BOLD COAST (1)
