Race 3 – 13:35
1600m – www.galloptv.co.za Maiden Plate

1 – Mighty Mashona
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Cascadia by Sail From Seattle (CAN)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Donovan Dillon
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He is drawn in barrier one and will be positively ridden from the jump. His last start was marginally disappointing, but it could be due to the fact that it was his first run at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. He is in a good space and fit. A repeat of his penultimate run should see him go close to winning.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2021.10.12. Best MR:74. Cracked pole position and has claims on good penultimate run.

Breeding: Global View (USA) – Scented Ash by Ashaawes (USA)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He showed good improvement when stepping up to this distance last time. He is improving all the time and if suited to the polytrack, he should run well and has an each way chance.

Race 5 – 14:45

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He has been disappointing to date. His sand work has been decent and tries the polytrack for the first time. He will be fitted with the blinkers and we are hoping to see improvement under Muzi Yeni.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:49. No form lines to recommend. Gets blinkers removed and can improve if suited to poly.

Race 6 – 15:20

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Craig Zackey
Wgt: 55.5kg
Draw: 3 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He is much better than his last start on the Vaal Classic course. The son of Soft Falling Rain won his maiden over this course and distance. He jumps from a good draw of three and with his natural gate speed, he is expected to go close to winning.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers OFF. Best MR:74. Gets blinkers removed. Won maiden over this C&D and can improve.

Race 6 – 15:20
1200m – www.trackandball.co.za MR 68 Handicap

5 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Breeding: Var (USA) – Sharp Mistress by Tamburlaine (IRE)
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Khanya Sakayi
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

The 1000m was too short for him last time and he steps back over 1200m. He is doing well at home and if jumping on terms from his handy draw of five, he can run into the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:66. Moderate latest. Should enjoy the step up in distance.

Race 6 – 15:20
1200m – www.trackandball.co.za MR 68 Handicap

Breeding: Var (USA) – Bichette by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 7 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He won his maiden with ease over 1000m last time. He does take on stronger, but his work has been good and he is expected to be competitive with Warren Kennedy in the saddle.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:75. Comfortable maiden win under Kennedy. Handicap debut but has scope.

Race 6 – 15:20
1200m – www.trackandball.co.za MR 68 Handicap

8 – Purple Powahouse
Breeding: What A Winter – Clarion Call by Kabool (GB)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 61.5kg
Draw: 8 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He is a horse that does not travel in the early part of the race and the stable have elected to put a set of blinkers on. We are hoping that this will help Keagan de Melo get him into the race. His work has been good and he is expected to be involved in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:77. Decent latest. Drops back to 1200m and blinkers could do the trick.

Race 7 – 15:55
1400m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 83 Handicap

1 – Kuuma
Breeding: Lance – Second Bite by National Emblem
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He ran a fair race in his last start over this course and distance. He gets the blinkers re-fitted which should help him concentrate in the closing stages. He carries a more suitable weight and from pole position, he may fight out the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:95. Gets blinkers re-fitted. Well-weighted and trainers only runner.

Race 7 – 15:55
1400m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 83 Handicap

Breeding: Oratorio (IRE) – Bois De Boulogne by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 4 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She has finished second in her last two starts over 1200m. She is putting up good work and although she is taking on male company, she should be very competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:88. 2nd in latest behind subsequent winner. Can go close.

Race 7 – 15:55
1400m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 83 Handicap

Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 7 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He moved up well last time, but the mile may have been out of his reach. The son of Gimmethegreenlight always gives of his best and back over the 1400m, he should be in the firing line once again.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:84. Decent latest in this class. Drops back to 1400m and should make his presence felt.

Race 8 – 16:30
2000m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 67 Handicap

Breeding: Elusive Fort – Early Spring by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 12 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

This is his first run out of maiden company and unfortunately he is jumping from the widest draw of twelve. He has plenty of scope and with some luck in running, he has a first four chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:71. Just won maiden over a mile and the form has been franked. Looks progressive.
