KENILWORTH

Race 1
Race Summary: YELLOWPORSCHEROAD only found one better on debut. If smarter this time, which is likely, he is going to be hard to beat. CHARLIE CROKER has shown some pace in his three starts. He needs to do more to win a race but could earn some money. The balance of the field is made up of first-timers, so keep one eye on the betting. The Justin Snaith newcomer GREEN FALCON is probably the best bred and one to watch.

Selections:
#9 Yellowporscheroad, #3 Green Falcon, #2 Charlie Croker, #5 Master Point

Race 2
Race Summary: COUNTRY TIME did not show much on debut, but exhibited good pace in her next start and could go one better this time. SILVER SCREEN showed pace on debut and was not disgraced when fifth. She could earn some money. STAR IN WINTER seems unreliable and a tough ride, but clearly has a winning chance. Snaith Racing has three newcomers carded and the best of them looks to be the Trippi filly TRIP TO BARBERTON. Keep an eye on the betting.

Selections:
#3 Country Time, #9 Star In Winter, #10 Trip To Barberton, #8 Silver Screen

Race 3
Race Summary: A competitive looking race. CANFORD LIGHTS has improved with each race and showed he has no problem with this distance. He is the one to beat. LAST STORM was slow away and did not show much on debut. He did a lot better in his second start and was not too far behind rival CANFORD LIGHTS. He should be right there at the finish once again. PAS DE NOM was not disgraced when runner-up last time out. He is badly drawn this time around, though. TOTHEMOONANDBACK improved in his second start and has a winning chance.

Selections:
#1 Canford Lights, #4 Last Storm, #6 Pas De Nom, #12 Tothemoonandback

Race 4
Race Summary: A tough race for the exotics and the best advice is to go wide in this leg. NAUSHON is clearly better than his last run would suggest and deserves respect. TIN CUP was not beaten far last time out and from a good draw has to be considered. AENEAS has improved with the aid of Blinkers and could be ready to score. SPIRIT OF SILVANO, ELECTRIC WARRIOR, DOUGLAS and GUY ALEXANDER all have a winning chance. TWICE THE MASTER is in good form and could go one better this time.

Selections:
#8 Twice The Master, #7 Guy Alexander, #6 Douglas, #1 Naushon

Race 5
Race Summary: EXCEEDER is in good form and looks overdue another win. In this small field he looks the right one. COUP DE MAIN has been unreliable of late. He is suited to this type of distance and has to be respected. FLY OVER and THEFUTUREISBRIGHT have some fair form and could be involved in the finish once again. THOUSAND SHIPS is improving and is coming off a nice maiden win. He could be the biggest threat to EXCEEDER.

Selections:
#1 Exceeder, #5 Thousand Ships, #4 Thefutureisbright, #3 Fly Over

Race 6
Race Summary: A tough race and most of the runners hold a winning hope. WALK OF FAME does not win very often but has some fair form and must be considered. DAD'S CATCH usually gives her best and is quite at home over this course and distance. LA FOLIE DOUCE is improving and has a big winning chance. Trainer Andre Nel has a couple of runners in the race and the best of them of them could be FUSILLADE. This filly looks to be better than her rating and has a winning chance. STARBOARD needs further and is returning from a break.

Selections:
#4 Fusillade, #3 La Folie Douce, #1 Walk Of Fame, #2 Dad's Catch

Race 7
Race Summary: Another open looking race. MISS GREENLIGHT won well over this course and distance in her penultimate. She found the shorter distance a bit sharp last time out but was doing good work at the finish. PERFECT TRUST is unreliable and is better over a bit further, but is clearly not out of it. POLAR WORLD, BONIKA and LITTLE DOE are all in good form and have a winning chance. FLY TO RIO could pop up into a place.

Selections:
#2 Miss Greenlight, #10 L'Ami Jean, #11 Little Doe, #1 Fearless Trip

Race 8
Race Summary: SILVER SALMON showed nice promise early in his career. He lost his way but has improved lately and has a winning chance if anywhere near his best form. The one to beat though is DEAN STREET. This Master Of My Fate gelding was full of running last time out and could be way ahead of his current merit rating. BALTIMORE JACK and BLUFF ON BLUFF are coming off modest runs but are capable of doing better and could earn some money. AULD MUG was not disgraced in his latest start and has a winning chance.

Selections:
#3 Dean Street, #2 Silver Salmon, #4 Baltimore Jack, #8 Auld Mug

Best Win: #9 YELLOWPORSCHEROAD                   
Best Value Bet:                                        
Best Longshot: #4 FUSILADE

TURFFONTEIN

Race 1
Race Summary: Tricky Work Riders Maiden Plate. MAGIC FLOWER was backed in both his starts but obviously never produced his form. He is stable companion to two first-timers SWING UPON A STAR and TIMEINTHEWOODS who are reported to be doing well at home - watch. NOT YOUR CALL is on the up and has top rider Joe Gwingwizha aboard. PHANTOMOFTHEFOREST could prefer further but will be catching late. FULL GO, GIANCARLO and GONE IN TIME could place.

Selections:
#9 Swing Upon A Star, #2 Not Your Call, #8 Magic Flower, #1 Phantomoftheforest

Race 2
Race Summary: Only filly in the race, NATIONAL STAR (gets 3kg) should carry too many guns for the males. The one to beat. CLIMATE CONTROL was disappointing last time but could be a huge threat if getting back on track. Stablemates GOOD COUNCIL and PRIME EXAMPLE are held on collateral form but either could get into the Trifecta. SHIPS AT SEA is another looking for minor money. Watch the newcomers.

Selections:
#8 National Star, #1 Climate Control, #3 Good Council, #5 Ships At Sea

Race 3
Race Summary: TRENTINO is maturing and should be cherry-ripe to exit the maidens. TRIED AND TRUE comes from franked form and should give her something to think about. She holds all of ALLTHEWAYFROMUSA, LADY GREENSLEEVES, SASSY and SKYFALL on the Rimaah form-line. The last mentioned showed improvement last time despite pulling up fatigued.

Selections:
#6 Trentino, #7 Tried And True, #4 Skyfull, #1 Allthewayfromusa

Race 4
Race Summary: QUEST FROM AFAR races over a much longer trip before this and is unlikely to take her place, however, if she runs, must be respected. NAZDAROVYA was a well beaten third last week but could get into the action. She is stable companion to MAYENNE who pulled up striding short last time after being scalped in running. WALALA WASALA and juvenile DAME TWINING could get into the reckoning. Watch the newcomers.

Selections:
#3 Mayenne, #1 Quest From Afar, #2 Nazdarovya, #6 Dame Twining

Race 5
Race Summary: The last run of SUPER AGRA should be ignored. He claims 4kg and should make a bold bid. He holds stablemate VEGAS HI RISE on earlier form but the latter showed improvement when winning after a rest. ANOTHER THIEF has won both starts in new surroundings and could complete a hat-trick. ROLLWITHTHEPUNCHES was touched off in his last two but if settling could keep up the gallop. MOYA WA LALIGA and CORVETTE CAPTAIN could make the Quartet.

Selections:
#1 Super Agra, #5 Another Thief, #3 Rollwiththepunches, #2 Vegas Hi Rise

Race 6
Race Summary: TUSCAN WINTER came off a rest and it did wonders. He won with a lot in hand and could go in again. VAL D'ORCIA ran below form in the Computaform Sprint but drops in class and with 4kg off his back could be a serious threat. TWICE AS SPLENDID performed well when winning his second start and should hold honest form. GRAPPLER and stablemate DOCKOFTHEBAY (gelded) may just need the outing. CAPTAIN MORISCO and BURNING WINGS could make the frame.

Selections:
#9 Tuscan Winter, #1 Val D'Orcia, #10 Twice As Splendid, #7 Grappler

Race 7
Race Summary: Competitive. ABOUT TO STORM is holding form and should make his presence felt from a good draw. ASTROCYTE is improving and could go in again. Stable companion ALINGALONGA races in new surroundings and could improve. CAPTAIN OF GRIT and DAWN OF A NEW ERA have to overcome wide draws. CATCHTHEGREENLIGHT loved the fast pace set last time and could make the money. Others could pop up.

Selections:
#1 About To Storm, #7 Captain Of Grit, #4 Astrocyte, #5 Dawn Of A New Era

Race 8
Race Summary: Difficult race to end. IMPOSING ANGEL found problems last time which could have cost her the race. She should be involved in the finish. Stablemate DOUBLE MAGIC was slow to begin last time but did well to run second. RAISETHEREDLANTERN needed his last run and could get into the action. ALLEZ LES BLEU has a shout if behaving at the start. GIN AND TONIC and MONEY FIGHTER could win if producing true form. MISS MAGICIAN could take home a cheque.

Selections:
#2 Imposing Angel, #3 Double Magic, #14 Raisetheredlantern, #13 Allez Les Bleu

Best Win: #8 NATIONAL STAR                       
Best Value Bet: #2 IMPOSING ANGEL                      
Best Longshot: #2 IMPOSING ANGEL
