Monday 14 December 2020
Race 6 – 14:55
1400m – www.trackandball.co.za MR 76 Handicap
4 – Maitland Magic
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Draw: 4 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
He is in great form heading in to this race and is fit and happy. From the good draw, Anton Marcus takes the ride, and he should get the run of the race. If all goes to plan, he is the horse to beat on form.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Crawford B-2020.10.28. 3rd run after rest. Best MR:76. Decent handicap debut against stronger. Can go close.
5 – Agent Murphy
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Draw: 5 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1
He isn’t in the best form at the moment, but we are hoping for his rating to drop a few more points. Maitland Magic looks tough to beat at these conditions, but we’ll be hoping to see him finish just off them.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:83. Moderate last two runs. Performed well for Moodley on 13.09.2020.
Race 8 – 16:10
1200m – Gold Circle Racing YouTube MR 72 Handicap
5 – Spanish Fort
Trainer: Cliffie Miller
Jockey: Collen StoreyWgt: 53.0kg
Draw: 5 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1
He hasn’t managed to feature since returning to KZN, but he has been working very well of late. If he brings his best form to the course, he should be able to earn a stake cheque.
Winning Form Comment: Held by number 3 on latest. 3rd in only attempt over 1200m, respect.
6 – Purple Powahouse
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Draw: 6 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1
He is fit, well and seems to be in very good form at this stage. An honest sort, he is never far off them and if repeating his last effort when he was just beaten by Spydas Corner, he should be a major contender at the business end of this contest.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:71. Just pipped last time in this class. Is a big runner.
7 – Jozi Hustle
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Jason Gates
Draw: 7 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1
He has settled in nicely and the stable are very happy with his prep leading up to this race. He looks well handicapped and if bringing his recent work to the course, he should be a big contender on stable debut for the Gary Rich yard.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Binda C-2020.11.08. 3rd run after rest. Blinkers OFF. Best MR:79. First run for Rich camp, can improve.
