South Africa (Fairview) preview

RACE 1 (1,000M)

(6) RED OCTOBER SKY is holding form and should fight out the finish.

(7) ADVICE ALERT and (8) CRISTIAN are making their debuts and can be considered, (9) IRISH PRIORITY has had two modest starts but could still improve.

The filly (11) HOORAYFORHOLLYWOOD is having her first start and also cannot be ruled out.

RACE 2 (1,000M)

(2) FAVOUR'S PRIDE is always in with a winning chance. Stable companions (3) NATURAL TAN and (5) OKLAHOMA SKY should be in the shake-up.

(9) LA REBEL and (8) SWEETCHILDO MINE are capable of winning.

(6) FLY PEG FLY seems better than her last run.

(7) CALIFORNIA GIRL makes her local debut, so watch the betting.

RACE 3 (1,400M)

(2) ENBHARR may have just needed his last start and should fight out the finish.

(3) REEF OF FORTUNE is clearly capable of better than his last run and has a winning chance.

(1) FREDERICK FOX has been a bit disappointing recently but is capable of earning some money.

(9) CONSONANCE and (10) COPPER TRAIL must be given respect.

RACE 4 (1,400M)

(1) WITHOUT PERMISSION and (2) BUCK EYE are holding their form well enough to have strong winning chances in this race.

(10) BRAVE ENDEAVOUR has a chance.

RACE 5 (1,800M)

(4) RAKE'S CHESTNUT ran his best race in ages last time out and can win if repeating that effort.

(1) CHIT CHAT lacks a strong finish but could earn some minor money.

(2) JUST LIKE MAGIC is holding form and is not out of it.

(5) SHADY WORLD was a shock winner of his last start which was double the distance of this race.

RACE 6 (1,600M)

(8) EN GEE OH is returning from a break but can win this.

RACE 7 (1,600M)

(1) CHINA EXPRESS has been in very good form recently and could be the right one in this race.
