Turffontein On Standside Today

First due off @ 12h15

Racing has been switched from the Inside course to the Standside course at Turffontein this afternoon.

Nine races are carded with the first due off at 12h15.

Namaqua Blossom from the Lucky Houdalakis stable takes her place in Race 4 and she is the possible Pick 6 banker.

She was slow into stride over this distance on the Vaal Classic course last time but finished her race off strongly.

She is having her peak run today and Richard Fourie may be able to coax that little bit extra out of her where it matters most.

Trainer Robyn Klaasen saddles Dolcezza in Race 7.

She ran a fair race in a Graduation Plate over 1450m on the Inside course last time.

She was reported to have choked up that day. The daughter of Erupt is having her peak run today and should be cherry-ripe.

She has class about her and from her good draw of two, she can return to winning ways.

Please note the distance changes: 1450m now 1400m and 2600m now 2400m.
