The Hollywood Syndicate has quite a strong hand when we return to Hollywoodbets Greyville, this Monday 7th December 2020. See more about what we are expecting here.
Monday 7 December 2020
Race 3 – 13:35
1400m – Track and Ball Gaming Maiden Plate (F&M)
4 – East Coast Star (pictured on debut)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Draw: 4 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/10
East Coast Star has come through her run on Sunday perfectly. She is straight back on her feed and runs again on Monday, in a maiden plate for fillies and mares over 1400m, on the Hollywoodbets Greyville poly. Anton Marcus will ride jumping from an ideal 4 draw. She takes on moderate looking opposition on paper and would be one of the leading contenders in the race, so she must have a big winning chance. See her final workout below.
Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Is better without the headgear fitted. Should win in this type of field.
Race 4 – 14:10
1400m – Soccer Any15 FM 95 Handicap (F&M)
6 – Not Now Pussycat
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Draw: 6 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
She is doing very well at home and the stable couldn’t be happier with her progress leading up to this race. Anton Marcus takes the mount from a very useful draw and over this trip, against this sort of opposition, the stable are expecting her to be the one to beat.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Showed guts in latest and the form of that race has been franked.
Race 5 – 14:50
1200m – Greyville Convention Centre Merit Rated 64 Apprentice Handicap
7 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Draw: 7 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1
He pulled up sound after his run on Monday and should enjoy the drop back to the 1200m here. If this run hasn’t come too soon, he should give another very good account of himself and we expect to see him fighting out the finish once again.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:66. Good last three starts. Merits respect.
10 – Strikeitlikeamatch
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Cole F Dicken (-1.5kg)
Draw: 10 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
He gave a useful account of himself in that first run for the Gary Rich stable, confirming that he has settled in to his new home. He has been working well at home and if overcoming that widest draw he should go very close to winning.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Botes B D-2020.10.24. Best MR:82. Good debut for Rich camp.
Race 6 – 15:25
1800m – Saddlers Arms Merit Rated 62 Apprentice Handicap
4 – Ibutho
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Kyle Strydom (-4.0kg)
Draw: 4 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1
He has come on from his maiden win in fine form and the stable feel that they have found the right race for him. With 62kg to shoulder, the 4kg claiming apprentice has been booked to ride him and if finding a smooth passage throughout the race he should be the one to beat over the extra ground.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Comfortable maiden winner and the form of that race has been franked.
