Race 3: SAMURAI JACK (3)
Jockey: Khumalo S - Trainer: Laird A
SAMURAI JACK produced three good runs after shedding his maiden tag over this trip. He returns from an 18-week break today, which may have done him the world of good. He has won once, finished second once and third once from four starts over this distance. He takes a drop back in class today and if not in need of this run, he should be too good for this field.
TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 7: STATELY HOME (1)
Jockey: Hewitson L - Trainer: Gray St John D
STATELY HOME has finished second in her last three starts. She finished 0.5 lengths behind ILLUMINATE last time and is 1kg better off at the weights. That should be enough for the tables to be turned. She should strip a much fitter horse this afternoon and should find herself in the winner's enclosure.
Race 8: SOUTHERN CHARM (1)
Jockey: Kennedy W - Trainer: De Kock M
SOUTHERN CHARM may not have seen out the seven furlongs in her last start. She has won twice and finished second once from as many starts on this course. The manner in which she won on debut over this C&D was impressive. She makes her handicap debut this afternoon and from her good draw of three, she should take a power of beating.
Race 9: SENTBYDESTINY (1)
Jockey: De Gouveia D - Trainer: Dawson C
Grade 1 winner SENTBYDESTINY returns from her well-deserved 12-week break this afternoon. She lost a length at the start in the Premiers Champions Stakes last time, but ran on strongly to beat her male rivals. The daughter of Master Of My Fate is unbeaten from two starts over the mile trip. She may be in need of this outing, but her class should pull her through.
Race 5: OYSTER KING (3)
Jockey: Dicken C F - Trainer: Jonker C
OYSTER KING is the value bet on today's card. His last two starts over a mile against stronger have been decent. He has won once, finished second twice and third once from as many starts on this course. The son of Elusive Fort takes a drop in class today and from his good draw of two, he should be the one to beat
