Bling Can Tame The Tiger Today

First due off @ 12h00

A nine-race programme has been carded for the Turffontein Inside course this afternoon with the first due off at 12h00 and the lucky last set for 16h45.

Green Sapphire from the Sean Tarry stable takes her place in Race 3 and she is the best bet on the programme.

She produced a promising debut effort over this distance at the Vaal. She was slow into stride, understandably raced green but stayed on nicely at the finish.

She would have gained from the experience and if not too green around the turn, she should find herself in the winner’s enclosure.

Trainer Fabian Habib sends out What A Tiger in Race 4 and he represents decent each way value.

He ran a fair race in his last start over this distance at the Vaal.

The son of What A Winter takes on weaker opposition today and his last good effort came in this Class.

Smanga Khumalo is booked to ride and he may be able to get the best out of him where it matters most.
