The Hollywood Syndicate has one confirmed runner with three reserves this Saturday 13th June 2020, at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. It’s Post Merchants day and it’s always a thrill to be involved in this race day, in one way or another. See more about what we expect here.
Saturday 13th June 2020
Race 2 – 11:40
1200m – Post Subscribers Maiden Juvenile Plate
15 – Ibutho
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Reserve Runners
Draw: 0 (12 Runners)
Current Betting: SCRATCHED
Now that he is ready for his debut, he has been nominated and accepted to run this Saturday 13th June.
Unfortunately, he has since picked up an elevated temperature which renders him ineligible to run. He was in any case, an unlikely starter here due to his 3rd Reserve Runner status. With that said, he has been one of the more promising 2-year old colts / geldings we have with the Alyson Wright stable, so he should be a contender when he does get his chance.
Winning Form Comment: Brother to: EMERALD BAND 3g ( 5: 2, 2). *Duke Of Marmalade gelding(Cost R110 000).
Race 5 – 13:25
1600m – Indy Entertainment MR 70 Handicap
7 – Mighty Smart (Pictured)
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Sean Veale
Draw: 7 (16 Runners)
Current Betting: 20/1
He returns after a few soundness issues ended his last campaign, when suffering from a pulled glute muscle in his handicap debut appearance. After two poor performances thereafter, it was clear that he was still feeling some discomfort. The rest has really done him the world of good and he is ‘back on track’ for a return to form now. The mile may be a touch on the sharp side, but this run will be used to get him going and he has been working well enough to finish in the first half of the field.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 19 wks. Blinkers OFF. Three poor runs since winning maiden. The break may have done him the world of good.
13 – Bhakka
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Reserve Runner
Draw: 11 (12 Runners)
Current Betting: 14/1
After that impressive maiden win last time, he has really matured well over the past few months and he has turned into a progressive type. Being the first reserve here, he now comes into the race due to the withdrawal of Mashari, who was drawn 11.
Despite the mile being a touch on the sharp side, the longer Hollywoodbets Scottsville straight will suit and go he should give a very good account of himself. If not this time, he will be perfectly set up to go right into contention for the winners enclosure over a bit more ground next time.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Wright A J-2020.03.15. Rested 13 wks. Won maiden well. Has changed stables. Looks to have scope.
15 – Uncle Charlie
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Reserve Runners
Draw: * (12 Runners)
Current Betting: S.P.
He is the third reserve here and it is unlikely that he will get a run. With that said, he is slipping in the ratings and appears to have landed on a very competitive mark of 67. When he does get his chance, he will be a big factor at this level and should be worth following.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 15 wks. Has been taking on stronger. Drops in class. Upset potential.
