Friday 4th September 2020
Faiview Poly Track
Race 9 – 16:20
1200m – MR 76 Handicap
2 – Gail Force
Trainer: Gavin Smith
Jockey: Stallone Naidoo
Draw: 4 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1
She is a very temperamental filly and these issues have been well documented, however she seems to be on the right path and the improvement has been noted by the stable. After that decent return over the 1400m last time, she now has her second run after a rest here in what appears to be a trip more suited to her style of running.
Stallone Naidoo picks up the ride having done all the work on her and if she manages to settle in-running, she should give a very good account of herself. With the above in mind, she has an outside place chance.
Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Two moderate runs in this class, needs to show more.

A great win a the second time of asking, by this talented filly. She is certainly not stopping here. See the replay below.

A smart barrier trial by this filly. She has her quirks and it was a great relief to see her handle the occasion as well as she did. That will bring her on in leaps and bounds and with the ability she has shown us so far, we cannot wait for her debut in a few weeks. See the replay below.
