No Twisting Tony’s Arm Today

The Bipot starts in the first race at 12h20

Racing is at Turffontein on the inside course this afternoon and eight races are carded.

The first is due off at 12h20 with the lucky last set for 16h30.

Trainer Tony Peter sends out William Iron Arm in Race 6 and he looks the best bet on the programme.

He is lightly raced with good form lines to his credit.

William Iron Arm took the lead at the 400m mark in the Gr1 TAB SA Classic last time, but was outrun late. The son of William Longsword is the best weighted runner in this contest.

Calvin Habib retains the ride and he should take a power of beating.

Circus Lights from the Grant Maroun stable represents decent each way value in the lucky last. He took on stronger company in his last start over this course and distance.

He finished second in his previous two runs over this course and distance. He takes a drop in class and with Piere Strydom in the saddle, he can notch up his third-career victory.
