Muzi And Brave Viking The Standout At Turffontein

First due off @ 12h00

Nine races are carded on the Turffontein Inside course this afternoon, with the first due off at 12h00 and the lucky last set for 16h40.

Today’s free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge is available on the local double-header and the Hong Kong racemeeting so get your selections in and tip your way to the top of the leaderboard.

Mighty Goddess from the Weichong Marwing stable takes her place in Race 4 and she is the best bet on the card.

She should have won her last start as she hung in the final 200m. She has won once and finished second once from as many starts over this distance.

The daughter of Flying The Flag meets the right field today and if keeping on a straight line, she should notch up her fourth-career victory.

Trainer Joey Soma sends out Brave Viking in Race 7. He ran a fair race over 1400m on the Standside course last time.

It must be noted that Mid Winter Wind has come out and won again since.

The son of William Longsword has dropped in the ratings. Jockey Muzi Yeni takes the ride and with a bit of luck from his wide draw, he can win a race of this nature.
