Hollywoodbets Greyville Turf

Race 1 – 13:05
1000m – Barrier Trial

3 – Blow Me Down
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Luke Ferraris
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 2 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He returns from a 20 week absence from the course and this run will be used to get him going for a summer campaign. He lands a useful draw and he does have a fair amount of ability to make a good impression first run back, despite the fact that he will need it. Back over the 1000m, where he has run his best race, he’ll be aiming for a first four finish.

Winning Form Comment: Well beaten on poly track last time. Best form has been over this distance. Can place.

7 – Jozi Hustle
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates (-1.5k)
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 8 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He was extremely green on debut and after showing plenty of speed, he started running around in the closing stages and faded out tamely. As such, we have decided to drop him to 1000m this time and if utilising his good gate speed, he should be able to overcome gate 8. He’ll be right up there in the early parts and with the expected improvement to come, he has a good place chance and a small winning chance.

Winning Form Comment: Found plenty of betting support on debut. From of that race has been franked. Should have improvement to come.

Race 10 – 12:30
1000m – Barrier Trial

2 – Bhakka
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Ashton Arries
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 3 (9 Runners)

Purchased at the 2018 BSA National Two Year Old sale, he is a son of Wylie Hall who is going to be more effective over 10 furlongs. As such, this will be used to get him going and he will be nominated for his debut shortly after.

6 – Gail Force
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Denis Schwarz
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 2 (9 Runners)

This filly has shown tons of ability at home, but she does have major temperament issues. That seems to be an unfortunate trait with the Soft Falling Rain fillies and she is no different. Either way, we expect her to be very green in running and hopefully the experience will bring her on nicely.
