Race 4 – 14:15
1600m – Maiden Plate (F&M)

9 – Hollywood Thunder
Trainer: Gavin Smith
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 4 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

After a decent debut, she has been slightly disappointing in her last two starts. Her latest was most disappointing, but it has become clear that she wants more ground which would present a more sedate gallop. She has been a bit outpaced in the early parts of her runs and over the mile this time, she will be able to settle into her action a lot more efficiently. She is certainly bred for the trip and we expect to see some big improvement this time. Before we tip her to the public, she will have to show a bit more.

Winning Form Comment: Is held by number 8 on moderate comeback run. Up in trip and should strip fitter.

Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack

Race 6 – 15:55
1000m – MR 68 Handicap

5 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 8/1

That was a decent comeback run last time and the objective was achieved, as it has proved to be a nice pipe-opener to get him going again. That was over the 6 furlongs and he just tired in the latter stages, but he drops back to the minimum trip now, where he won his penultimate start. He has landed a prime draw here and gets the services of multiple Group 1 winning rider, Smanga Khumalo. With the expected improvement, he looks a big runner and he appears to have a fair each-way chance this time.

Winning Form Comment: Needed latest. Is better suited to today’s distance.

5 – Lauren Of Rochelle
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Stuart Randolph
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 13 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

He was disappointing last time out, when barely raising a gallop and it was soon clear why. Having coughed multiple times post-race, he was clearly suffering from a virus of some sort and that will explain the modest showing. He returns now, 6 weeks after that last effort and he’ll be cherry ripe for this run. He does have a wide draw to overcome, but that is not immediately detrimental to his chances as he does prefer to see most of the field in front of him, during the early part of his races. With a bit of luck in running from off the pace, he’ll be running on late and is worth a place bet.

Winning Form Comment: Had excuses last time. Drawn wide once again but better this trip.
