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

BASADI FAITH was backed at long odds and strolled in on debut. She looks promising. WHAT YOU ARE showed up well on debut and could improve over the extra 200m. Both MASAAQAAT and CAVIVAR meet up before this on debut - watch. Respect money for newcomers MILL QUEEN and CODE BLACK.

210:45 AM - All To Come Maiden Plate (F & M)

Both FLORIDA QUAYS (needed her last outing) and TARGARYEN QUEEN have been threatening since day one and either could have their consistency rewarded. ROYAL FUTURE is running close up and shouldn't be far off which brings IT TAKES TWO into the picture. BEL CANTO CHORUS could get into the mix on collateral form. Watch newcomers especially ATTENTION and VIJETA.

Watch out for: FLORIDA QUAYS (1)
311:20 AM - Supabets - 0861 76 22 37 Maiden Plate (F & M)

RUSTING LEAF has been close up in all 3 starts, however, she gives start and may have a breathing problem. OCEANIA showed inexperience on debut but will come on heaps. She should confirm form with VISCOUNTESS VIVIEN and COMET CRYSTAL. JULEP showed good improvement after a rest and could get into the money. CHOIR SINGER found problems last time and should do better.

411:55 AM - Gauteng Guineas 2 February Assessment Plate

SCOOP has been in the money in all 5 starts and could complete a hat- trick.STATE TROOPER is fit and well and should give him a go. TOPMAST comes off a rest and gelding and any improvement should see him contest the finish. HEAVENLY RISK has beaten SCOOP before but may not be at best now. BASILIUS needed his last run and the 1000m trip could suit. MOJITO MAGIC can improve.

Watch out for: SCOOP (1)
512:30 PM - Classic Day 2 March Fm 83 Handicap (F & M)

OPERA, LADY OF THE WORLD and MEMPHIS BELLE have beaten each other before and it could go any way. On their most recent performances the nod goes to OPERA. VINE STREET STAR has her blinkers back on and should be right there. COLOUR OF LIGHT and MODJADJI can not be left out of calculations. SEE YOU TIGER has more scope to improve. SWELL TIME could place.

Top Tip: OPERA (3)
Watch out for: LADY OF THE WORLD (5)
61:05 PM - Champions Day 4 May Mr 74 Handicap

ALPINE GLACIER needed his last outing and could prove too strong for this field. TARSUS did well in his first run in his new surroundings and could challenge. SUGOI is back on this track and should get into the money. BRIGTNUMBERTEN, PIUS OIL as well as the Grant Maroun stable mates GOLDEN MAN, SINGASWEWIN and QUEEN OF WAR could take home lesser cheques.

Top Tip: SUGOI (5)

71:45 PM - Betting World - 087 741 2777 Assessment Plate (F & M)

RONNIE'S CANDY has been racing against the best of her age and if over her coughing spell should win it. GREENER PASTURES is maturing now and if the favourite fluffs her lines could capitalise. BLOSSOM won on the 2nd time of asking while SCENT OF EVENING won on debut - both seem to be well above average and could feature. AURELIA COTTA could get into the money.

Watch out for: BLOSSOM (8)
82:25 PM - Tab Telebet - 0861 000 822 Mr 74 Handicap

Wide open. OLD MAN TYME tries further now and if not troubled by breathing could take it. Stable companion ROCKY PATH meets LOCK HIM UP on 5,5kg better terms but may not be able to make up the 4 lengths beaten by. LAZARUS TREE is capable but wins alternately - may not be his turn. STREET FLYER was narrowly beaten in his last 2 and could go one better. Many more with claims.

Top Tip: WHAT A JOKER (4)
Watch out for: OLD MAN TYME (1)
93:00 PM - 0861 150 160 Mr 74 Handicap

Difficult race. SOVEREIGN REIGN beat BOLD COAST (won subsequently) recently by 1,3 lengths but is 2kg worse off. JUDD'S ROCKET finished a head behind BOLD COAST last time but is 1kg better - all 3 could pull it off. MAKE YOUR MOVE should be at peak fitness and should be thereabouts. PRIVATE RULER is holding form and with REFUGE and MANHATTAN COCKTAIL make up the short list.

Top Tip: BOLD COAST (1)
Watch out for: SOVEREIGN REIGN (2)
103:35 PM - Next Vaal Racemeeting Tuesday 22 January Fm 74 Handicap (F & M)

A difficult race to end with many possibilities.

Top Tip: SAMARRA (11)
