10:00 AM - Compliments Of The New Year Qualified Maiden Plate

Open race to start the new year off. THE GREY CRUSADER can score an overdue maiden win. He finally has a lesser weight due to his claiming apprentice. But he is carded to run on the 28th. ZARATOS probably needed his local debut and can make good improvement today. THE JAZZ SINGER can't be faulted in this league but goes a bit further here. MIGHTY GEMINI can get into it.

210:30 AM - Maiden Plate (F & M)

Well bred ORIENT EXPRESS has not bad West Cape form. She improved last time and could prefer the right handed polytrack. POPOVA did well to take second in her first run over the extended trip. She should not go backward even if switching to the poly at Greyville. LA DUCHESSE improved when fitted with blinkers giving the eventual winner a hard time. SILVER PRANCER has a say.

CUDUIARI is in good form and would be deserving. He has the best of the draw of the leading contenders. DON'T LOOK BACK has ability but didn't show after rest last time. He has dropped in ratings and will be fitter. ROY'S ROLL'S ROYCE has a wide draw again. But must be respected. HYAKU suddenly improved on the turf last time. SEA SPONGE may clean up one of these days.

SIBERIAN HUSKY drifted out as favourite on local debut and showed he needed the run. He should come on strongly and run a big race today. FIREFOOT impressed last time but this is on the poly. Still he has a 4kg claiming apprentice and is improving. ROOT BEER is holding form well and should earn again. WHO SAYS is capable but may just need it. More can earn.

DANCE OFF was in good form before rest. He is back to his best distance and if not in need of the run should go well. MARK TAPLEY looks to be improving though and carries just 50kg - a full 10kg less than DANCE OFF. Could get close. VIKING RED is back over his best track and trip and should make a race of it. UNBELIEVABLE LAD is a lot better than his recent form.

612:30 PM - Racing. It's A Rush Fm 88 Handicap (F & M)

PHILAE found Generous Lady too good last time. She is however back on the poly and could relish it. She can go one better after finishing seconds in her last two. CHAMPENOIS has been racing after rest and doing well. She is having her second run after rest now and it could be the right time for her. SORCERESS is capable but hard to follow. CELESTINA has a say.

71:15 PM - Gold Circle Podcast Mr 69 Handicap

SIGISMUND faded out after showing the way last time. He may just prefer sprint trips and being the top rated horse here demands respect. HIDDEN INFLUENCE made a form return last time and can only improve. Not as well drawn though. J J'S CAPTAIN has blinkers fitted and it could make the world of difference. Has a plum draw. WASHINGTON SQUARE and SENTIDO should be there.

Top Tip: SIGISMUND (1)

81:55 PM - Gold Circle Racing Youtube Channel Fm 68 Handicap (F & M)

AMBER FURST came from far back after jumping from a wide draw and won well enough to suggest she can follow up. She is also effective on the poly. MISSIBABA is knocking hard at the door and has the better of the draw. She could time it right but is dropping in trip. I'M FREE is a youngster that shows good toe. Can get away. EVERLASTING LOVE and PROSECCO have claims.

92:35 PM - Greyville Convention Centre Mr 66 Handicap

Tough race to end and it should pay to go wide in the exotic bets. DONNAN won a nice race after a slow start last time. He could be better than rated and in any case has drawn well this time. ROYAL RUSTLER must come on after needing it last time. He has done battle in tough races. GREAT DICTATOR needed it last time and could prove decisive. BRAVO ZULU and OPEN COURT can win.
