Some to consider...

Race 1 - 5 Willow Rose
Race 2 - No selection...maybe 4 Captain Morisco
Race 3 - 4 Jet Cat
Race 4 - 1 Golden Spoon
Race 5 - 2 Top Shot
Race 6 - 2 War Jewel
Race 7 - 11 Piccadilly Square
Race 8 - 2 Supa Mufti

All the best to all Clanners for today...stay safe and healthy...had heavy rains overnight on KZN coast...lots of standing water so be safe if out driving...

I think we need to follow S'manga, Alec Laird & young Murray today to make decent money.

On paper looks like the punters should get off to a flying start

Siren of Greece
Al Sakeet
Bat out of Hell


Good Punting

Not sure the first 2 hotties should be that short - Bat out of Hell the better value; some interesting racing - races 5, 8 and 9 look particularly competitive - can't believe the odds being offered in the 5th especially

r1- siren of Greece looks a good thing

r2- al sakeet no real formline to go on but just having a look at the time he won on debut looks a good thing



r3 - very average race narrow 1st selection goes to jet cat if you excuse his last run probably has the best form in the race add kumhalo and larena

r4 - Golden spoon drops back to the 1200m my narrow 1st selection from bat out of hell

r5- very open race outsider for the day master and man if he brings his prior form has a big shout bottom weight have a say oceans forest also 1 to consider

r6 - 1.2.5

r7 - forever light drops heavy in class picadilly square danger

r8 - contrail hard to beat

siren of greece
al sakeet
contrail
forever light place

Not a problem but where does Lyle quote his fixed prices from?
Some strange numbers but would expect he would use WSB scrolling ?


That was a decent price for hottie.......
