Timeform on Make Me Happy

Exquisite Touch - Turffontein 11:30

Exquisite Touch is already a real money-spinner for the Sean Tarry yard with five wins from just the nine starts, though her winning run did come to an end here last time out Standside when she was beaten by a nose in a falsely run contest over nearly six furlongs. Dropped back to her favourite trip here and with the stable in great form, Exquisite Touch ought to prove very hard to beat this morning.

Make Me Happy - Turffontein 13:50

Make Me Happy is hunting down her hat-trick this afternoon for the in-form Mike de Kock yard after victories over shorter here in March and April. An added three pounds from the handicapper won't help her chances but she gets in off bottom weight raised in class this afternoon, and with the added furlong expected to bring further improvement, Make Me Happy can make her supporters happy here once again.

Nother Russia - Turffontein 14:25

Nother Russia is a class act with seven wins from her sixteen starts and over two million Rand in win and place prize money. Last time out the daughter of Tiger Ridge was only beaten a quarter of a length by twice South African Horse of the Year Legal Eagle in the Horse Chestnut Stakes here on the other track, with four lengths back to the third, and a repeat of that ought to be more than enough to see Nother Russia home in front here.
