There’s plenty of fascinating feature racing action to look forward to this weekend, including the Green Point Stakes and the Cape Fillies Guineas on Saturday.

Horse Racing at Kenilworth racecourse

There’s plenty of fascinating feature racing action to look forward to this weekend, including the Green Point Stakes and the Cape Fillies Guineas on Saturday.

Turffontein (Sartuday)

Race 2 – Celestial City 

The well-bred Celestial City returns to the track after a resounding debut performance last week. The son of Silvano got up on the line and looks well above his ratings here. He cost R7 million and looks at the part. In this field, the Sean Tarry-trained colt should win easily.

Race 4 – Fog Bank

Fog Bank is the next best bet on the card at Turffontein. He finished second behind East Coast on debut and has been gelded since that run. He does come back from a 38-week lay-off and if he’s fit, he should be way too good for this field here.

Race 8 – Littlemarysunshine

Race 8 on the card at Turffontein looks like it could provide another winner for the Mike De Kock stable in the form of Littlemarysunshine. The 3-year-old filly has a massive weight turnaround from her last start, dropping 11.5 kgs from her last run. This will be her third run after a rest and she should strip fitter over the mile.

Kenilworth (Saturday)

Race 6 – Whoa Whoa Whoa

Blink and you’ll miss this speedy Grade 2 event between some of the finest sprinters in the Western Cape. Whoa Whoa Whoa gets the top selection from the Brett Crawford stable, who will be ridden by Luyolo Mxothwa. The 4-year-old filly gets an outside draw up the straight and has plenty of gate speed to get the front and kick away.

Race 7 – Kommetdieding

With Jet Dark scratched and out of the race, Kommetdieding should have an easy victory to get under his belt here. The 5-year-old son of Elusive Fort finished powerfully in his comeback run over 1200m. He’ll be much fitter now and despite this being a competitive field on paper, “the people’s horse” should make easy pickings of it.

Race 8 – Ciao Bella

Justin Snaith and Richard Fourie will be worth following in the Grade 1 Cape Fillies Guineas with Ciao Bella. The daughter of Bela-Bela has shown her ability in the five starts she has raced and looks to have some class about her, winning three times. She won a Grade 2 in her last run and can go one further over the extra furlong.

Scottsville (Sunday)

Race 3 – Fortune Bay

Fortune Bay has had three starts to date, finishing runner-up in each of her runs. The daughter of William Longsword gets blinkers fitted for the first time and should be able to get out of the maidens. Serino Moodley retains the ride for the Mike Miller stable and the pair should be able to lead this one home.

Race 5 – Captain Fontane

Captain Fontane is the top-rated in this field and gets the top selection under the reins of Ashton Arries, who was the last jockey to ride this gelding to victory. The 5-year-old son of Captain Al has won twice and finished second in his three runs at Scottsville and should be tough to oppose once again.

Race 7 – Rugger Bugger

Rugger Bugger looks a decent colt to follow, winning at the second time of asking. He goes up the straight for the first time at Scottsville and should be difficult to beat. Calvin Habib gets the services once more for Wendy Whitehead. The horse he beat last time out, Rock N Roll Girl, runs earlier that day in Race 3, so if the form is franked in that race, you can back this colt with much more confidence.
