After a tough day at Turffontein yesterday, punters will be looking to recoup some losses at Fairview today where the form gods will hopefully be kinder.
There are eight races on the polytrack, commencing at 12h25, with the running of the Bipot.
The Sporting Post top bet of the day is the ever reliable major centre stakes winner Meryl who runs in the seventh race, a Conditions Stakes. Equally at home on both surfaces she has held her form well in four runs since arriving here in July. Greg Cheyne takes over the riding honours from Charles Ndlovu, who has done very well.
Louis Mxothwa is medically indisposed and not riding today.
