Nine races are carded at Turffontein on the Standside course this afternoon.

Jockey JP van der Merwe has five rides booked with a couple of decent winning chances and he may be the man to follow.

The first is due off at 12h00.

Callmewhenuneedme takes her place in Race 6 and she is the possible Pick 6 banker.

The manner in which she drew clear of the opposition over 1400m last time was eye-catching. She does take a rise in class but is loaded with ability and should be up to the task at hand.

Trainer Alec Laird sends out Rule Book in Race 4 and he represents decent each way value.

He showed some signs of needing his comeback run over 1800m on this course. The manner in which he finished off his race that day was encouraging. His last victory came over this course and distance.

The son of Global View will strip a much fitter horse today and he will be mowing down the frontrunners.

Athandiwe Mgudlwa is riding at Hollywoodbets Durbanville. Tshepiso Matsoele has been stood down.
