Upcoming Midweek Runners: 16th March 2020 – 18th March 2020

After Bhakka made it 162 wins for the Hollywood Syndicate when he landed the first race at Hollywoobets Greyville on Sunday 15th March, we will be looking to add to that tally this week. Spanish Fort could be the likeliest of our four runners to find the winners enclosure during the first half of the week, when he lines up in the 4th race at Flamingo Park on Monday 16th March. See more about his chances and our other runners here.

Monday 16th March 2020
Flamingo Park

Race 3 – 13:10
1000m – Betting World Maiden Plate

9 – Listen To Lilly
Trainer: Cliffie Miller
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 12 (12 Runners)
Current Betting: 50/1

After 4 poor efforts since moving up to Kimberley she has been freshened up for this run and we will be hoping for any sign of improvement. Time is running out for this daughter of Bold Silvano and if she doesn’t shape here, we may have to call it a day with her.

Winning Form Comment: Took on males last time. Can place if repeating 09 December effort.

Race 4 – 13:40
1000m – MR 62 Handicap

1 – Spanish Fort
Trainer: Cliffie Miller
Jockey: Diego De Gouveia
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 8 (10 Runners)
Current Betting: 5/1

The ever consistent son of Elusive Fort comes into this race after a 10 week absence from the race course. He was just touched off into second last time out, when finishing right behind Windy Flight who has subsequently come out and picked up another win. Diego De Gouveia takes the mount this time around and with his customary speed, we expect him to be involved in the finish with a genuine each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Just beaten in latest. Windy Flight has come out and won again since.

Tuesday 17th March 2020
Vaal Turf

Race 1 – 12:40
1400m – Maiden Plate

7 – Zig Zag
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Craig Bantam
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 10 (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He is yet to go into contention at the business end in any of his outings thus far, but on his latest effort he appears to be wanting a bit more ground and as such we have entered him into this 1400m. He will need to start showing some improvement.

Wednesday 18th March 2020
Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack

Race 6 – 15:50
1200m – MR 69 Handicap

2 – Not Now Pussycat
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Jarred Samuel
Wgt: 55.0kg
Draw: 2 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She has her second run after a rest here, with this being her second outing for the Hollywood Syndicate and the Gary Rich stable. Having dropped 9 points in her last 5 starts, she has now landed on a competitive mark of 62 and she is starting to look a big contender in this division. She steps up to the 6-furlongs this time and should relish the extra 200m. From a plum draw we give her a strong place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Needed stable debut last time. Better this trip and can improve.
