Sunday 13th October 2019
Hollywoodbets Greyville (Turf)

Race 5 – 15:40
1900m – Maiden Plate

7 – Mighty Smart
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Donovan Dillon
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 6 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He has had a consistent start to his career and has strengthened up with each of those five course appearances he has had so far. All five of those runs have been with the inevitable in mind and that is the fact that he has always been looking for further and this time, he finds at trip he is bred for. Not only does he step up to this more suitable trip, but he also finally lands a draw where he has more chance of finding a relatively handy position with ease. Donovan Dillon takes the mount and he has been in good recent form. Despite the fact that there are one or two dangers in the race, a lot appears to be in the favour of Mighty Smart and the stable are very confident of another big run. He deserves a lot of respect and looks a good each-way bet.

Winning Form Comment: Good form to date. First time trying this distance and jumps from a decent draw. Respect.

Race 8 – 17:25
1000m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 79 Handicap

8 – Jerry The Juggler
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Sherman Brown
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 13 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He was nowhere near ready for that comeback run last time out and despite the fact that he finished just over the 6 lengths back, the run has bought him on nicely and he is in a good place right now. He does have the widest draw to overcome and that will unfortunately dent his chances of winning, but he does have plenty of ability and with a bit of luck in running he should be finishing strongly. He will still need the run, but does have a small place chance. It will take a good ride from Sherman Brown to get there – so follow with caution.

Winning Form Comment: Fair comeback run. Won maiden over this distance. Has a chance if overcoming wide draw.

12 – Agent Murphy
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Raymond Danielson
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 3 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

We picked the wrong race for Agent Murphy last time. Everything from the draw and instructions to the rider, ended up working against us and he was never really in the race. Advised to drop him out from gate 12, he pinged the gates and found himself near the front of the field within a matter of strides. Caught wide, Gavin Lerena had to restrain him so that the field could pass him on his inside to allow for a backseat position and Agent Murphy did not like that at all. He was always down to be gelded and after that disappointing effort, it was as good a time as any. He returns to the course as a gelding and drops back to a trip where he is much better suited. He has really turned the corner in the past few months, after having an interrupted 2-year-old campaign with a recurring bought of Urticaria. With the 18 week absence from the course, he will just need the run but on ability he has an each-way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Took on much stronger last time. Has been gelded and is better over this distance.
