11:05 AM - Children Are Our Future Fm 60 Handicap (F & M)

Wide open first race but SARABI has fair form, top rider and a good draw. Should go close. GINGER BISCUIT is hard to beat when finishing hard and she showed something like her best form last time. YAAS won a nice race here last but has a bit more to do this time. Still must be right there. MISSIBABA took on males last time. This trip is better and she has a plum draw.

Top Tip: Yaas (6)
Watch out for: Sarabi (4)
2 11:40 AM - Izimbali Qualified Maiden Plate

CAPTAIN'S ALPHA showed up well in the Highveld earlier. That kind of form should be strong here. He tries the poly and has been given a decent barrier draw. SOLSBURY HILL has not scored as well in that department but must enjoy this longer trip to the 1000 metres at Scottsville where he played up. RUMBLEINTHEJUNGLE can score an overdue win but has drawn widest.

Top Tip: Solsbury Hill (1)
Watch out for: Just Dixit (2)
3 12:20 PM - Tomorrow's Hope Maiden Plate (F & M)

HEY JUDE looks to be meeting the right kind of field. She can open her account. ABBEY has only raced in barrier trials but has shown potential. She has drawn a bit wide but could be a danger still. MAKHET showed good pace in her penultimate. Perhaps her run at Scottsville needs to be ignored. She may prefer the turn and poly here. WINTER SYMPHONY can feature well here.

Top Tip: Abbey (9)
Watch out for: Hey Jude (1)
4 12:55 PM - Say No To Violence Mr 66 Divided Handicap

FINAL ATTEMPT ran on well and was then badly baulked last time. He has shown enough to win a race like this but needs to break on terms. SHARPE'S EAGLE scored nicely last time. He has been rested but could come out flying. MASTER SAM has a 4kg claim and it could give him a big say. He did improve last time. L'HISTOIRE looks a bit better than his last try. More in it.

Top Tip: Final Attempt (1)
Watch out for: L' Histoire (2)
5 1:30 PM - Education Is Important Mr 76 Divided Handicap

RED SHIFT was most unlucky last time. He has a better draw here and can make amends. COLLABRO was not far off him in that race and will be having his third run after rest. Could prove dangerous. EUPHORIC is a youngster that may have more to come with maturity. Must be respected from draw two. ARCHILLES carries a light weight and could get into contention.

Top Tip: Red Shift (4)
Watch out for: Collabro (2)
6 2:05 PM - Healthy Living Fm 61 Handicap (F & M)

JANICE'S SECRET showed something like her best form last time. She will be at her peak and has shown enough on the poly previously. ROMAN COURTESAN's second career win is overdue now. She is also having her third run after rest. SWEET PRESERVE is better than her barrier trial run. She wants this longer trip and must be considered. JOSEPHINE BAKER is holding form.

Top Tip: Janice's Secret (2)
Watch out for: Roman Courtesan (4)
7 2:40 PM - Ikusasa Lethu (Children Deserve A Better Future) Mr 80 Handicap

Poly specialist TOLTEC ran a nice race after rest last time. If showing no ill effects in his second run after rest should be a hard one to pass at the finish. TOMMY GRAND is another stubborn sort near the front and he won a nice race last time. Another that can get into the fight is SALTORO RIDGE who could get away over the longer trip. BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL has a say too.

Top Tip: Toltec (2)
Watch out for: Saltoro Ridge (4)
8 3:15 PM - Happy Child Mr 66 Handicap

FORTHELASTTIME is probably still learning. Can improve to win this but it is competitive. VIKING RED has a better draw and did have traffic issues last time. SOUTH PAW has blinkers fitted and it could make all the difference. LINE OF CONTROL and SOVEREIGN SOLDIER should be right there. More need to be considered.

Top Tip: Forthelastime (4)
Watch out for: Rich Harvest (9)
