Dave Randall's best bets for Tuesday's racing at Turffontein
The Inside track is in use on Tuesday and it is a right-handed, near oval of 2,500m (1m4½f) and low draws can prove beneficial, particularly over 1,450m (7½f) and 1,600m (1m).
There is a ten metre rise from the 7f marker before the 2.5f run-in, making it quite a stiff test.
An eight-race card takes place on the Inside track at Turffontein on Tuesday with the better races being three handicaps towards the end of the meeting.
Race five is a 5f merit-rated 80 handicap (1.45) and the obvious starting point is King Of The Delta, who is two from two over this course and distance, including when successful on his latest start from a 3lb lower mark. He has adecent draw in stall four, but has been rested since that victory in November, and may just need this return.
The two to take him on with are Isphanand Jozi Hustle. Isphan won over this course and distance on his penultimate start from a 3lb lower mark in February and ran well when fourth on the straight track at Vaal this month. The eight-year-old has decent each-way claims from a favourable draw.
Leading jockey Warren Kennedy partners Jozi Hustle and the three-year-old is also worth backing. He is making a quick turnaround after a good fourth in a Graduation Plate on the outer track here on Saturday and should be right in the mix from stall five off a potentially favourable mark.
Oden finished a close second here from a poor draw last month and could go one better here under the talented Gavin Lerena andfrom a better draw.Pidgeon Rock won well over this course and distance in October and is a prominent runner with an ideal low draw. He was far from disgraced over slightly further at Vaal last month.
Race seven is a 7½f merit-rated 96 handicap for fillies and mares (2.55) and jockey Warren Kennedy renews a winning association with Promise. She is two from four over this course and distance and, hopefully, Kennedy can get her out and running from stall seven. If so, she should take some pegging back.
