Turffontein Selections

Place your bets at Tic Tac Bets, where you will find the best odds.

Race 1 – 1500m (Maiden Plate)

The day opens with a weak work rider’s maiden race, so be careful when betting. Our tentative selection is Gloria Mundi. The filly is limited at best but has improved in her last race. She gets a handy galloping mass of 52kgs and is weighted to place.

Suggested Bet – Gloria Mundi EW @ 7/1

Race 2 – 1000m (MR 66 Handicap)

Life Goes On needed his last start after returning from a six-month break and should strip much fitter. He gets the 4kg claim, and off 55.5kg, he should be competitive.

Suggested Bet – Life Goes On EW @ 5/1

Race 3 – 1500m (Maiden Plate)

Summer Shade carries a low weight of 53kgs in this maiden handicap race. He has fair form but struggles in the running, with no luck or injuries and always switches strides. He has a wide draw to overcome, but if not too far back at the final 400m, he can run into the money. That 4kg claim could prove the difference at the finish.

Suggested Bet – Summer Shade EW @ 10/1

Race 4 – 1600m (FM 64 Handicap)

Gimme The Flame produced a good run in her last start against males. She is having her peak run now, and against her sex, she should be competitive. She has good form and gets a 4kg claim from the apprentice jock. The four-year-old filly is a contender in this field with some luck and a good draw.

Suggested Bet – Gimme The Flame EW @ 5.5/1

Race 5 – 1800m (MR 73 Handicap)

It is a competitive race, with many having a chance to win. We are in the camp of Gilda Gray, who carries a handy galloping mass of 54.5kgs. She has decent form and can give the males a strong challenge. She enjoys running at the course, and her course and distance stats are good (5 runs for one win, one second and a third).

Suggested Bet – Gilda Gray EW @ 9/1

Race 6 – 2600m (MR 73 Handicap)

Royal Mazarin is much better than his last start. Before that run, he produced two wins, a second and a third in four races. He is in a good space and can run well for Muzi Yeni, and bounce back to his previous form.

Suggested Bet – Royal Mazarin EW @ 5.5/1

Race 7 – 1450m (MR 66 Handicap)

We are taking a chance on After Hours to find a form return in this race. The six-year-old has not been in contention lately but did produce an eye-catching second two runs back. He did not reaffirm that run in his last start, but we think he could show signs of that run here. It is a tentative EW selection; if we get lucky, he could find a place.

Suggested Bet – After Hours EW @ 10/1EW Place

Race 8 – 1200m (FM 64 Handicap)

Twice As Wild has a bad draw to deal with but does have early gate speed to overcome the draw. She has two wins and two third-place finishes in six races over course and distance. If she does overcome her bad draw and is in the leading pack at the finish, she will fight out the finish.

Suggested Bet – Twice As Wild EW @ 6/1EW Place
