Upcoming Runners – Hollywoodbets Greyville – Friday 4th October 2019

It’s a return to Night Racing at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse, this Friday 4th October 2019 and we have two runners to look forward to. Listen To Lilly has her second official start and she will be looking for some improvement, in Race 1 on the card. Thereafter, Uncle Charlie returns from a short rest and will be looking to continue his useful post maiden form. See the final fields and more about their chances below.

Race 1 – 17:02
1000m – Maiden Plate (Fillies)

Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Jason Gates (-1.5)
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 9 (11 Runners)
Current Betting: 20/1

We were rather shocked about her debut effort last month, as her work at home had been so impressive. Danielson jumped off and mentioned that she definitely gave him a decent feel, but in the same breath she was still very dumb and green. We have decided to drop her into a sprint now and the idea will be to bounce her out to a handy position early on and hopefully the reduced trip will induce some big improvement. Once again, her final sprint up on Wednesday was another very promising work-out and we are hoping that she learnt enough in that debut run to turn things around. On her work at home it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her show big improvement, but she will have to show us first before we can tip her with any confidence to the public.

Winning Form Comment: Needed debut effort badly. Would’ve gained from the experience and tries the poly. Can improve.

Jockey: Jason Gates (-1.5)
Wgt: 61.5kg
Draw: 8 (13 Runners)
Current Betting: 10/1

He has had a useful entrance into the post-maiden ranks, having run a good second in his penultimate start, followed by a fair run against stronger opposition last time. He now steps up to a trip where he won his maiden three starts back and this will be a great opportunity to use his smart turn of foot, over the extra furlong. From gate 8, he will be looking for a mid-field position with the early pace expected to be brisk and with a bit of luck in early running he’ll hopefully avoid being caught out wide, in the ‘cheap seats’. He is in a good place right now and we’re expecting a bold showing from the son of Curved Ball. He’s a worthy inclusion with an outside win chance and a good place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Took on stronger in latest. Won maiden over this distance. Chance if fit.
