Wednesday 10th July 2019
Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse
Race 3 – 13:35
1500m – Juvenile Plate
4 – Anika The Angel
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Predicted Betting: 5/1
She put in a solid performance last time out, when stepping up to the mile. Travelling well in the early parts, she raced awkwardly around the bend when the pace was reduced significantly in-front. However, having lost momentum she managed to stay on strongly. She is still learning with each and every run and we expect her to go much closer to the winners box this time around. She has a nice each way chance.
Winning Form Comment: Enjoyed the extra last time, when finding traffic. Hewitson retains. Respect.
9 – Simply Russian
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Predicted Betting: 7/1
She was rather unlucky last time out, when running into traffic at a crucial stage in the race. If not a win, she would’ve gone very close had she found a clear passage through. That was from a wide draw on the Greyville poly track and she now returns to Pietermaritzburg for her first attempt around the Hollywoodbets Scottsville bend, after two decent efforts down the straight. From a much improved draw today, she should run a huge race. She wouldn’t be a surprise winner and we give her a good each way chance.
Winning Form Comment: Found traffic last time. Drawn well, include.
