Danie Toerien: Trainer Joe Soma must think the racing gods prank him with every draw.
Brendan Gaillard: People who have been in racing for many years tend to refer to runners like Banjo On My Knee as brasses, as they flatter to deceive but I am going to give him one more chance and hopefully he can win Race 7, a Pinnacle Stakes over 1800m at Flamingo Park on Monday.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: Brett Crawford-trained Baby Shooz has placed in two of three starts and the manner in which this worthy Pick 6 banker, a son of Jackson, has finished in those races suggests he is begging for the extra ground, so should be hard to oppose in Race 4, a Maiden Plate over 1600m on the Greyville Turf track on Sunday.
Brendan Gaillard: Sail From Seattle filly Racine proved far too good for her rivals on the Polytrack recently and can follow up on Friday in Race 8 over 1000m on the Fairview Turf track.
Jack Milner: Promiseofamaster has the form to win Race 6 at Turffontein on Thursday, a Graduation Plate over 1600m.
Ken Nicol: Talented Desolate Road hasn’t won for almost a year but looks set to end that unfortunate streak when he takes a drop in class at the Greyville Polytrack on Wednesday.
Ken Nicol: Kilindini appeared headed for much bigger things when a fluent maiden winner last time and can confirm that impression in Race 7, a MR 78 Handicap over 1400m at Kenilworth on Tuesday.
Brendan Gaillard: The Pomodoro gelding Time Master is having a good season and there are a couple of reasons to suggest he can strike winning form again and take Race 2, a MR 59 Handicap over 2200m at Flamingo Park on Monday.
Bonginkosi Nkosi: Trainer Michael Roberts has told anyone willing to listen that he believes one-time winner Jack’s Bird – who has only run unplaced in one of four outings – is a decent thoroughbred in the making.
