Upcoming Midweek Runner – Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse – Wednesday 11th September 2019

We have one runner to look out for this week and he’s a strong contender for the lions share of the winners prize, this Wednesday 11th September 2019. Mighty Smart steps up slightly in trip, in the 8th Race at Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse and he is going to relish the extra ground. Fittingly, its a Race we sponsor so there will certainly be a big contingent of Hollywood supporters paying close attention. See Trainer Paul Lafferty’s comments here.

Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse

Race 8 – 16:40
1750m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Maiden Plate

7 – Mighty Smart
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 9 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 1/1

Mighty Smart put up a game effort last time out (pictured), at just his third time of asking. We expected the improvement as there was never any doubt about his need for more ground and he duly obliged with a good effort to finish a neck behind the winner, in second place. He had a wide draw to overcome in that run, but with his natural gate speed he was able to bounce out of the stalls and find a handy position without having to be used up in the early parts. He has another tricky draw to overcome this time (9), but should be able to repeat his last start and we expect to see him near the front once again. He is going to absolutely relish the extra 150m this outing offers and considering that he has come on a lot from that most recent effort, he looks a very tough horse to beat. We give him a very good win chance in a modest field. Final Field below.

Winning Form Comment: Good last start behind subsequent winner. Will enjoy the extra and can go one better.
