Turffontein’s ten-race programme is alongside Hollywoodbets Kenilworth this afternoon.

It is an early start to the day with the first due off at 11h45 and the lucky last set for 17h00.

Thunderstruck from the Sean Tarry stable takes his place in Race 9.

He was given a peach of a ride when winning the Jonsson Workwear Gr1 Computaform Sprint last time.

The son of Rafeef is the class horse in this race and he should take a power of beating.

Trainer Roy Magner sends out Visionofpeace in Race 3. She was a tad disappointing in her last start over 1200m on the Inside course.

She won a game race on debut over 1160m on this course. The daughter of Visionaire will love the rise to 1400m.

She would have strengthened up during her time off the track and from her good draw of three, she can return to winning ways.
