Catch Me Holly runs today, in race 3 at the Vaal. After a modest start so far, we’ll be hoping for big improvement. Details here.
18 – Catch Me Holly
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Joshwin Solomons (-2.5kg)
Draw: * (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1
Now that he does get a chance, we’ll need to see big improvement. A horse that hasn’t made much of an effort so far, he will be drawn towards the outside of the course and the apprentice will be looking to bounce him out and let him use his action down the straight.
Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:62. Not much promise shown. Needs to improve.
August 26th, 2020
Having put on a decent display in a few of his recent grass gallops, he is now ready for his debut this Sunday 30 August 2020. See the final field below:
