It’s a busy start to the week for the Hollywood Syndicate, with a number of runners lining up at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Monday 30 November 2020. See more about what we expect here.

Race 2 – 13:05
1000m – www.tabgold.co.za Merit Rated 72 Handicap

1 – Purple Powahouse (pictured)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 1 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He is doing very well at home and has some very consistent form to his name. Drawn 1 over this 1000m trip, he will more than likely take up the running out in front and should be the one to beat with Lyle Hewitson retaining the ride.

Winning Form Comment: Always thereabouts. Drawn in pole position and merits respect.

9 – Spydas Corner
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 9 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

The stable were of the opinion that the 1400m trip last time out was a tad too far, despite the fact that he gave a very good account of himself to finish 4th. Dropping back to the 1000m here, the blinkers will be fitted and if reproducing his work at home he will give a good account of himself.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:81. Decent post maiden effort. Makes handicap debut and can show.

Race 3 – 13:40
1200m – Track & Ball Gaming Merit Rated 61 Hcp (F&M)

2 – Arctic Princess
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 2 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She has settled in well at Gary Rich’s yard and has worked well with the blinkers of late. If the 1200m isn’t too short, she will go close here.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Kotzen G S-2020.09.06. Rested 12 wks. Blinkers ON. Best MR:75. First run for Rich camp, should improve.

Race 4 – 14:15
1400m – Soccer Any15 Merit Rated 65 Handicap

2 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 2 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

The stable have recently changed their feed and this created an issue where some horses hadn’t eaten up the new product for a few days. Things have since settled down and the yard is back in full swing. He is in good current form, lands a plum draw with Anton Marcus up and looks set for a massive run over this 1400m trip.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:66. Is yet to be unplaced over this c&d. Follow.

Race 5 – 14:50
1800m – Greyville Convention Centre Merit Rated 70 Handicap

8 – Mighty Smart
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 8 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He is in a very good place at the moment and this has been evident by the work he has been putting in at home. Anton Marcus takes the mount this time around and in this field, he looks the horse to beat.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Looked a winner last time. Likes this distance and can go close.

Race 6 – 15:25
1800m – Download tabGOLD Information App Merit Rated 70 Handicap

7 – Bhakka
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Denis Schwarz
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 7 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

As with Alphamikefoxtrot, the feed issue proved to be a bit of a concern earlier in the week but things have since returned to normal. He continues to drop in the ratings and finds a much improved draw this time around. If all goes to plan, he should run a nice race and should be able to find the first 4 places.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:74. Dropping in the ratings, can improve.

Race 8 – 16:35

11 – Anika The Angel
Trainer: Cliffie Miller
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 11 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She returns from a short lay-off here, but may just need the run. With that said, she is full of heart and the stable are expecting her to give a decent account of herself.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Wright AJ-2020.07.20. Rested 12 wks. Best MR:81. Fair latest. Returns from a break. Place chance.
