Getting onto an earlier flight (booked flexible J)

We booked flexible / premium J on SA7109 JNB-MRU dep JNB at 13:35, ticket issued by SA (flight operated by air Mauritius). We are arriving on BA55 at 07:10 (British Airways won't check out bags through since travelling on two different tickets) - if we are on time and clear immigration/ customs reasonably fast, how sympathetic are SA going to be to rebooking/allowing us to travel on SA190 which departs at 09.40?

They will be quite sympathetic if the ticket has enough flexibility. It is issued on their stock, so they have control. My suggestion would be to go straight to the ticket counter, since the check-in desk is likely to send you there anyway.
