Durbanville Tuesday Tips and Race Previews by Warren Lenferna

Race 1
Preview: BROADSIDE (7) finished third on debut and with natural improvement can secure his maiden win this afternoon. GOLDEN TRACTOR (2) is improving with racing and has experience on his side – he should go close and make a race of it. CAPKUTA (4) has a solid place chance – he disappointed his backers last time. (Warren Lenferna 7-2-4)

Race 2
Preview: RUMOUR HAS IT (9) is a very well bred filly – watch the betting with regards to her chances on debut and look out for the comments in the media – with that pedigree and from a yard that does well especially with young horses, it would not be a shock for me to see her win on debut. ROSEMARY MEADOW (8) finished exactly midfield on debut and with that run under the belt can get a lot closer – place chance. VILLITA RYE (11) could do well on debut – she is by Catcher In The Rye out of a Roar mare – interesting! (Warren Lenferna 9-8-11)

Race 3
Preview: LA DE DA (2) is coming along with racing experience and should relish the mile. She rates the one they all have to peg back. NAN (1) is improving and seems to run well for apprentice Sandile Mbhele. She should be right there at the finish today and her maiden victory should not be far away. CROSS COURT (3) can now improve to place. (Warren Lenferna 2-1-3)

Race 4
Preview: Not an easy race! WHITE LACE (4) has run three okay races thus far. The stable is coming right back into top form again and this daughter of Flower Alley meets the right field to secure her maiden win. LUNAR TUNES (1) is probably the one they have to beat – her form baring her last run is good enough to see her win here. MANINGI INDABA (2) could certainly lurk into a quartet position. (Warren Lenferna 4-1-2)

Race 5
Preview: Five of the eight runners here have won their last start which makes it a little tricky and some of them maidens. TATTOOED ROCKER (5) won well last time and has been selected to follow up. The apprentice keeps the ride. PEARL TIARA (1) also won last time but will have to carry top weight – nevertheless, she should still be right there and LADY ABIGAIL (2) is way better than her local debut suggests. (Warren Lenferna 5-1-2)

Race 6
Preview: SLEEPING SINGLE (4) clearly is a decent filly as she has recorded three on the bounce. It could pay to follow her again. MISS PLUMCAKE (3) is seldom far off the action and should be in the firing line today. INTOTHELIMELIGHT (2) has flashed up and run some attractive races – based on that she must be respected and included in most bets but they might all have to go some to beat Sleeping Single. (Warren Lenferna 4-5-3)

Race 7
Preview: BERNIE (2) is coming back to his best and finally looks ready to score another victory. He is holding his recent form and deserves to notch up another one. BELLINGHAM BAY (7) justified favouritism last time beating Quarllo rather well – he should run well again. POWER GRID (1) has a place chance. (Warren Lenferna 2-7-1)

Race 8
Preview: HAPPY WANDERER (2) has placed twice from three starts and should not be a maiden for too much longer. He does have a deep draw to overcome but will be guided by in form rider Warren Kennedy – if he can overcome the draw, he should go close to winning and has been made the first choice. BACKGAMMON (1) and HALF AND HALF (7) have quartet chances. (Warren Lenferna 2-1-7)
