1500 Metres Turffontein
Winners from Barrier Draw

Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

SOLACE ran on powerfully to win on debut over 1200m at the Vaal. The son of Master Of My Fate should love the step up to the 1500m. He takes a big rise in class today, but could be anything and may be up to the task at hand. TIGHT FIVE has finished second in his last two starts. He raced from a handy position last time and challenged strongly all the way to the line. Should the top choice fluff his lines, he may be the one to pick up the pieces. NAMIB DESERT won a good race when shedding his maiden tag over 1400m on the Standside course. The son of Silvano should enjoy the extra 100m on offer. He takes on stronger, but is lightly raced and looks to have scope. BARTHOLDI produced a fair effort in the Grade 3 Tony Ruffel Stakes last time. He drops to Handicap company and gets the services of S'manga Khumalo. If seeing out the extra distance on offer, he should have a say in the outcome of this contest.
