Tony’s Taragon The Tip Today

First off at 12h05

A ten-race programme is set to take place on the Inside course at Turffontein this afternoon.

The first is due off at 12h05 with the lucky last set for 17h20.

Jet Dynasty from the Sean Tarry stable takes his place in Race 5 and he is the possible Pick 6 banker.

He showed massive improvement when second in his last start over 1500m on the Vaal Classic course. He was slow into stride, but the manner in which he finished off his race was eye-catching. He would have come on from the run and will strip much fitter. Keagan de Melo takes the ride and he should take a power of beating.

Trainer Tony Peter sends out Tipsy Tarragon in Race 6. She was her own worst enemy in the Gr2 Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas last time as she over raced in the early stages and was awkward around the turn.

The daughter of Dynasty will enjoy the drop to 1450m and the fitting of the pacifiers may do the trick. Denis Schwarz retains the ride and from draw three, she can return to winning ways.

Kindly note that Randall Simons is not riding today.
