Upcoming Runner – Monday 30th September 2019 – Fairview Polytrack

After a great win by Alphamikefoxtrot out at Hollywoodbets Greyville yesterday, we look to Fairview in the Eastern Cape where Whiteleaf Hills is expected to feature prominently today – Monday 30th September 2019. It will be a smashing way to end off the month with a double, but see more about his chances and the final field here.

Monday 30th September 2019
Fairview Polytrack

 Race 7 – 16:15
1900m – MR 68 Handicap

9 – Whiteleaf Hills
Trainer: Gavin Smith
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 1 (12 Runners)
Current Betting: 9/2

He has been super competitive since returning from his rest three starts back and may have finished a lot closer, had it not been for an untimely bump 100m from the finish. That was over the course and distance, from gate 9 and once again he was forced to race wide for much of the way. He has finally landed a prime draw and should be able to find a favourable early position with ease. He is 2kg’s better off with Okavango Delta on that penultimate run, when going down a short-head. The latter now has the tricky prospect of overcoming gate 11 today, so a lot appears to be in our favour. Another danger could be in the form of Cruz Giovanni, who may have gone a lot closer to winning on his local debut last time. He too has a wide draw to overcome, but he deserves some respect. With Winning Form sponsored Muzi Yeni retaining the ride, we give Whiteleaf Hills a great winning chance and he’s a confident each-way selection.

Winning Form Comment: Should have finished closer last time. Merits respect from pole position.
