11:25 AM - Welcomes You Maiden Plate (F & M)

Many come off the Ocean City form line. TANA'S EAGLE finished over a length in front of stable mates SPLAT THE CAT and ROCK ME POKEY (runs before this) with STARLIGHT DANCER (on debut) and MEGA LEE (runs before this) not far off. She should confirm but it could get close all round. COLLATERAL BEAUTY has ability and warrants respect. TIDAL TUSSLE and COSMIC MIST can earn.

Watch out for: MEGA LEE (3)
212:00 PM - Gauteng Guineas 2 February Fm 92 Handicap (F & M)

With a 4kg claim FORT EMBER could show them a clean pair of heels. INSIGNIS is holding form but only receives 2kg from FORT EMBER, however, she should be thereabouts. COLD CASH meets her on 3kg worse terms for 2 lengths and shouldn't be far behind. GUNS AND ROSES should do better while JET START is not out of it.

Top Tip: FORT EMBER (1)
Watch out for: GUNS AND ROSES (3)
312:35 PM - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Maiden Plate

FORT CAROL has proven costly to follow but never got a run after stumbling at the start last time. He will be right there. FLAPJACK looked all over a winner last time and won't go down without a fight. The battle for minor money could be between, WAQAAS, ADOLFO, CHIEF BLACK HORSE, IT MUST BE FATE and GOLD GRIFFIN.

Top Tip: FLAPJACK (2)
Watch out for: FORT CAROL (3)
41:10 PM - Classic Day 2 March Maiden Plate (F & M)

The draws could be the decider here. MAGIC'S FIRST has Striker up from a good draw and could dictate. MIDNIGHT IN PARIS flew up late last time and will do the catching. EVER FAIR finished over 3 lengths in front of LACONIA last time but the latter could make the improvement. After being runner-up in her last 2, FLIRTY GIRTY could go one better from pole position.

Watch out for: EVER FAIR (7)
51:45 PM - Book A Table 0116811508 Pinnacle Stakes

Battle of the sexes. Filly SUNSHINE SILK is always thereabouts and with a light weight could fight out the finish with WONDEROUS CLIMBER. The gelding is unbeaten this trip and also at this track. COME THE DAY tries a marathon distance now and if stays could keep retain unbeaten status this course. TIRZAN is running close up and shouldn't be far off. AMERICAN INDIAN can earn.

Top Tip: TIRZAN (2)
Watch out for: AMERICAN INDIAN (3)
62:20 PM - Champions Day 4 May Mr 72 Handicap

Competitive. VILLAGE DEEP has been runner-up in his last 3 over marathon trips and could go one better, however, it could get close with EARTH SKY who is 1kg worse off for a head. HIGHLANDER comes late and needs to time it to perfection. TENDRE carries 62kg which could be telling over this distance. KINGS CUP and POWERED BEAUTY could prove best of the rest.

Top Tip: TENDRE (1)
Watch out for: HIGHLANDER (2)
72:55 PM - Betting World - 087 741 2777 Assessment Plate (F & M)

DANCING QUEEN has the class but is reported not at peak fitness, however, she could still do enough to take honours. ILHA DA VARLETTE is racing fit but Gavin appears to have opted for the former. CASUAL WEAR is back over a preferred trip and could get into the shake-up. OTTAWA meets stronger but could make the quartet.

Watch out for: CASUAL WEAR (3)
83:30 PM - Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 15 January Fm 65 Handicap (F & M)

Difficult race to assess. I AIN'T TRIPPIN wasn't disgraced last time when reported coughing and has as good a chance as any. She is coupled with GOA who is no slouch. ELBI is back over 1000m but COYOTE GIRL should finish on top of her on form. ILHA DA VAR could confirm form with CLAREMORRIS and LADY JACKSON. Look for a better performance from COUNTESS VAR.

Watch out for: I AIN'T TRIPPIN (3)
