110:10 AM - Welcomes You Maiden Juvenile Plate (Fillies)

ROCKACHINO was quietly fancied on debut and could only improve with that experience. PAY PAY and WARM EXPRESSION should also be wiser to the task but will need to show more to feature. Newcomer SOMEWHERE IN TIME is expected to run well on debut for an in-form jockey-trainer combination. Respect fellow first-timer SWEET KARMA. Watch the betting!

210:40 AM - Tab Telebet 0861 000 822 Maiden Plate (F & M)

FLUTTERING makes the most appeal on exposed form and won't be a maiden for much longer. ICON PRINCESS ran with promise on debut and should be better this trip with natural improvement. Well-bred fillies BITTER LEMON and HILDEGARDE will also be wiser to the task. RIVER RHONE and DUNTOCHE have earning potential. Watch the betting on newcomers ROUND THE HORN and SLEEPING SINGLE.

Top Tip: DUNTOCHE (5)

311:10 AM - Book Your Seat Sunmet 2019 Fm 68 Handicap (F & M)

STEFFI'S GRAFT has been in good form in the Western Cape and beat several of these rivals over 1000m last time. She will be better suited to this trip so should be competitive. MUMTAZ and IKEBANA were in close attendance that day and could turn the tables on these terms. PUREST BLISS is above average and could rediscover her form in blinkers. Others could get into the picture.

Top Tip: IKEBANA (5)
Watch out for: MUMTAZ (3)
411:40 AM - Betting World 087 741 2777 Maiden Plate (F & M)

MERKABA is overdue a maiden win but could be worth opposing from a deep draw. STAR OF SILVER and BIG SUZE have shown enough to be competitive, while long-time maiden ALFRED'S GIRL and ALPHA SAPPHIRE could again have minor roles to play. FOREST FIELD showed her inexperience last time from a wide draw after a good debut. She will have to offer so could represent the value here.

Top Tip: MERKABA (3)
Watch out for: STAR OF SILVER (4)
512:10 PM - Hospitality Booking Sunmet 2019 021 700 1600 Mr 83 Handicap

Good race. ANCESTRY has rediscovered his form and is weighted to turn the tables on MERAKI, who has taken his form to new heights with blinkers on. RED MARS is closely matched with ANCESTRY on a recent course-and-distance meeting and should confirm with top-weight LOADSHEDDER. Improving GRAND SILVANO and capable JAILHOUSE ROCK (down in class) can make their presence felt too.

Top Tip: MERAKI (6)
Watch out for: ANCESTRY (2)
612:55 PM - Supabets 0861 76 22 37 Fm 92 Handicap (F & M)

Open. Consistent OSTINATO races fresh but could find conceding weight to all a tough task. STRAAT-KIND has ability and with the blinkers removed could get a look in. SUNSHINE MINT was beaten on debut by VICE VERSA but may turn the tables if fit after a year's absence. The latter should be competitive but stablemate VODKA LIME is preferred under 52kg. CASUAL DIAMOND is capable.

Top Tip: STRAAT-KIND (4)
Watch out for: CASUAL DIAMOND (2)
71:40 PM - 0861 150 160 Fm 79 Handicap (F & M)

Tricky contest but one the 3yo fillies are likely to dominate with DUCHESS OF BOURBON preferred ahead of PEARL TIARA and CRUISE ALONG after an eye-catching last run at this level, albeit over further. ROCKET GIRL is closely matched with the latter so should be competitive. WALLIS SMIPSON is likely to improve over this trip. EXTRADITE and ANGLET are capable of getting a look in.

Top Tip: PEARL TIARA (5)
Watch out for: ROCKET GIRL (3)
82:20 PM - Fm 80 Handicap (F & M)

The in-form Crawford stable holds a strong hand and its runners are likely to dominate the 'lucky last'. MIDDLE WOOD should be competitive but is closely matched with RETRO EFFECT (drawn wide). MARAUDING has shown useful ability and should have more to offer over this trip. Regally bred stablemate VFORVICTORY is also bred to enjoy the extra. ANSE LAZIO and BIG FISH have claims.

Watch out for: MISS PLUMCAKE (4)
