Monday 21 September 2020
Hollywoodbets Greyville Poly
Race 5 – 14:55
1800m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 79 Handicap
2 – Mighty Smart
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Draw: 2 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1
He continues to drop in the ratings after a useful performance behind a progressive looking type last time out. From another good draw, he will more than likely look to settle just off the leading line and with this being a slightly shorter trip the increased tempo should suit. Serino Moodley jumps aboard this time and despite the slight rise in class, we’ll be looking for another big performance from this son of Archipenko.
Winning Form Comment: Fair latest behind a progressive sort. The slight drop in trip should suit, chance.
Trainer Comment: Back on the poly, we expect him to be in contention.
10 – Storm Ruler
Trainer: Cliffie Miller
Jockey: Jason Gates
Draw: 10 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1
He was disappointing last time out when fitted with blinkers and it was clear he didn’t enjoy them. From a tricky draw this time, he will more than likely be forced to the rear of the field and the tempo may just suit him. Having dropped another 3 points in the ratings he looks very well handicapped and well placed to produce an improved performance here. If finding luck in running, he could just feature at the business end but we’ll be looking for the improvement before he is tipped to the public.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Wright A J-2020.07.27. Blinkers OFF. Best MR:71. Upset potential.
Trainer Comment: Taken off the blinkers, expect an improve run.
Race 7 – 16:10
1200m – www.trackandball.co.za Merit Rated 62 Hcp (F&M)
4 – Not Now Pussycat
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Jarred L Samuel
Draw: 4 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
She seems to have lost her speed as she gets older and will more than likely be looking for more ground now. With that said the right race over the extra hasn’t materialised yet, so the stable have opted to run her in this 1200m handicap. Both of her career wins have come over this course and distance and with this being her peak run after a rest, she still has the credentials to make her presence felt.
Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:77. Both wins have come over this c&d, cherry-ripe.
Trainer Comment: Would have preferred 1400m but we need to race. She is doing well at home.
Race 8 – 16:40
1000m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Merit Rated 70 Handicap
11 – Purple Powahouse
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Draw: 11 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
He gave a solid account of himself in his latest outing, when stepping out for his handicap debut in this class of opposition. Having quickened nicely on that occasion Lyle Hewitson retains the ride but he will have his work cut out from gate 11. If finding some luck in running, he should be one of the leading contenders here.
Winning Form Comment: Finished well in handicap debut. Runs in the same class, respect.
Training Comment: Doing well but will find it difficult from the draw. Unfortunately there aren’t many races coming up for him, so we had to run him from a bad draw.
