Rachel Could Strike Today

The first is due off at 12h20

Turffontein Racecourse plays host to a nine-race programme on the Inside track this afternoon.

Rachel Venniker makes her way up north. She has a decent book of rides with some winning chances and she may be worth following.

The first is due off at 12h20.

My Lady Soul from the Tyrone Zackey yard takes her place in Race 2. She produced a promising debut effort over 1200m on this course.

She understandably raced green, but the way she finished off her race was eye-catching.

The daughter of Master Of My Fate found betting support that day which suggests that she was showing good work at home.

She would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should be the horse to beat.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Stuart Pettigrew sends out Moola Man in Race 3.

He was given a peach of a ride when shedding his maiden tag over 1200m at the Vaal last time.

The way he quickened up to get the better of Kinshin Sha was eye-catching.

The son of Lancaster Bomber takes on stronger, but he has plenty of scope and should be up to the task at hand.
