Upcoming Weekend Runners – Friday 6th September 2019 – Fairview Poly Track

It has been a 6 week period of a limited amount of runners, as far as our crop of Hollywood Syndicate horses is concerned. This is due to the time of season, where trainers opt to conduct the annual African Horse Sickness vaccinations. With that said, we have two runners this Friday 6th September 2019 on the Fairview Poly Track. Hollywood Thunder returns for her third career start and Whiteleaf Hills will no doubt be fighting out the finish once again. See more about their chances and their respective final fields here.

Predicted Betting: 10/1

She has experienced little luck in both of her introductions to the race course. First time out, she moved up as if she was going to fight out the finish before running into traffic. In her second outing, she was caught wide for most of the way and tired in the latter stages. As such, we opted to take a little more time with her in order to let her strengthen up and she really has matured nicely. She lands a useful draw this time around and the stable jockey and Winning Form sponsored Muzi Yeni, has opted to ride her. She should be finishing strongly and we’ll be looking for an improved run this time. She gets a place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Two fair runs before having a break. Is the stable elect and should improve.

Predicted Betting: 5/2

He has really taken a liking to his Port Elizabeth surroundings and has landed himself in some very solid form in recent times. After that solid comeback run in his penultimate start, when producing a strong finish to land in the winners box, he followed that up with another big challenge and looked a winner (pictured at the finish). Unfortunately the photo finish showed otherwise and he had to settle for 2nd place. He drops slightly in trip which may count against him slightly, as he does appear to get going very late over the 2200m. With That said, he went very close to winning three starts back, over this course and distance. Stable jockey and Winning Form sponsored Muzi Yeni opts to stick with him once again and another well judged ride can be expected. We give him a solid each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Just beaten last time. Drops in trip and merits healthy respect.
