Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack
Race 2 – 13:05
1400m – Gold Circle Racing YouTube Channel MR 78 Handicap
6 – Mighty Mashona
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Cascadia by Sail From Seattle (CAN)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Draw: 6 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
He won his maiden over 1600m last time and returns from a 13-week break. He appears to have strengthened up well in his time off the track. His work heading into this race is encouraging. The son of Master Of My Fate may be in need of this outing and it will bring him on for future races.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 13 wks. Gelded 2021.10.12. Best MR:74. Gutsy maiden winner. Giambattista won next time.
Race 5 – 14:50
1600m – Soccer Any15 MR 68 Handicap
7 – Protea Pride
Breeding: Capetown Noir – Rose North by Northern Guest (USA)
Trainer: Corinne Bestel
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Draw: 7 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1
He is doing very well at home and his trainer is very happy with his progress. His trainer feels that the Justin Snaith trained runner, Napoleon looks hard to beat on paper. Richard Fourie steps into the saddle and an honest run is expected. He is capable of running into the first three.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:70. Fair post maiden run. Chance with better luck in running.
Race 7 – 16:00
1000m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 96 Handicap
1 – Goliath Heron
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Water Bird by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Draw: 1 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1
He is better than his last start on the Highveld. He does meet a competitive field, but is doing well at home and jumps from pole position. He has gone up in the merit ratings which makes it more difficult, but he is expected to run a good race and can place.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:102. Better when utilising his early gate speed. Chance.
Race 8 – 16:35
1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 74 Handicap
4 – Phinda Mzala
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Facinating Filly by Antonius Pius (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: *Gabriel Pieterse -2.5kg
Draw: 4 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1
His last two runs over 1000m have been good. His preparation into this race has gone well. He shows good speed in his races and with 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Gabriel Pieterse back in the saddle, he has an each way chance.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Good last two runs. Went close on this course in penultimate effort.
