10:25 AM - Welcomes You Maiden Plate

Tricky race to open with many unknowns. LIBERADO drops in distance but has the form. Sean Tarry has 2 coming off rests and racing as geldings for the first time but Lyle rides first-timer FLASH BURN for the yard. SIR GEOFFREY can improve on debut. There are 7 newcomers - watch the betting.

2 11:00 AM - Book For Classic Day 0116811508 On 2 March Maiden Plate (F & M)

WHAT A THRILL has been knocking and could get it right here. MISS SABINA wasn't disgraced on debut and can only improve with experience gained. TEHUANO did well after a rest and could get into the reckoning. TIDAL TUSSLE is battling to crack a win but has a definite money chance. SENECA FALLS ran below form last time.

3 11:35 AM - Join Us For The Joburg's Prawn Festival 30 March Maiden Plate (F & M)

TUSCAN LIGHT has finished in the money in all 3 starts and should be thereabouts again. TARGARYEN QUEEN has been threatening and a victory is not out of turn. SATIN SLIPPER has most room for improvement and must be considered. UNDISCOVERED GEM hasn't been far back in both starts and could get into the mix. VISCOUNTESS VIVIEN and THE GREAT QUEEN could make the frame.

4 12:10 PM - Citizen Pinnacle Stakes

NOBLE SECRET has found the right distance now and is the class runner, however, he has to concede 9kg to WONDEROUS CLIMBER. Both have found their forte and have yet to taste defeat over this course and distance. ALI BON DUBAI is no pushover and stays well - respect. HIGHLANDER hasn't been far back lately and could make the quartet. LIEGE has class but needs to find form.

5 12:45 PM - Allez France Stakes (Fillies & Mares)

Top weight JET START is well above average, could give weight all round and should stay the extra. SUNSHINE SILK is never far off and should turn it around with CRANBERRY CRUSH on 5kg difference. ARTE is honest and should take home another cheque. She is 5kg better off with GOEDE HOOP (not striding out last time) for a neck defeat. GOTTALOTTALUV and BONDIBLU could upset.

6 1:20 PM - Wolf Power 1600 (Listed) (Handicap)

PILOU is on a roll and looking for 5 in a trot, however, he won't have it easy on this track and GREEK FIRE could give him a go on 1,5kg better terms. ZOUAVES strolled in last time and Gavin retains the ride, however, he has yet to win over a mile and beyond. With 52kg on his back THE DAZZLER could get into the action. DOOSRA, PUGET SOUND and DIVINE ODYSSEY could pull it off.

Top Tip: Greek Fire (9)
Watch out for: Zouaves (2)
7 1:55 PM - Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas (Grade 2) (3yo Fillies)

Cream of the crop. RONNIE'S CANDY was coughing in her last 2 if over the spell could contest the finish. She finished ahead of NAFAAYES who gives her 2kg. The latter impressed subsequently. Stable mate STORM DESTINY is maturing and the combo is on a hat-trick. CELTIC SEA is doing better - respect. Up and coming BLOSSOM fared badly in the draws. SCENT OF EVENING could feature.

Top Tip: Celtic Sea (3)
Watch out for: Nafaayes (1)
8 2:35 PM - Gauteng Guineas (Grade 2) (3 Year-Olds)

If the Gauteng Guineas doesn't draw the crowds nothing will. Mike De Kock has 3 stars; HAWWAAM - unbeaten in 3 but made heavy weather of his last win; ALYAASAAT - never out the money and makes his debut as a gelding; BARAHIN has class but comes off a lengthy lay-off. The P E champ NATIONAL PARK is out to prove himself. Strong front runner CHIJMES could get away from pole draw.

Top Tip: Hawwaam (1)
Watch out for: Barahin (4)
9 3:05 PM - Tab Pays The Full Dividend, No Limits Mr 79 Handicap

DHABYAAN is in form but LONE SURVIVOR (4,5kg better for 4.65 lengths) and AURORA AUSTRALIS (4kg better for 5,85 lengths) could get closer. BIG VOICE JACK is back in form and could get into the action. ROYAL ITALIAN should do better this distance. VICTOR FORTH races as a gelding for the first time - watch! MAWSOOF could get into the money.

Top Tip: Victor Forth (4)
Watch out for: Dhabyaan (6)
10 3:40 PM - Next Turffontein Racemeeting Saturday 9 February Mr 74 Handicap

Wide open. CORRIDO starts slowly but finishes fast and should give a good run for money. KINGS CUP is running close up and could chalk up another win. ANGELIC APPEAL should account for this field but sometimes doesn't feel like giving her best. ZEAL AND ZEST appears held on his latest but has a money chance. Others could pop up.

Top Tip: Corrido (10)
Watch out for: Tendre (3)
