Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack

Race 2 – 12:50
1200m – Track & Ball Gaming MR 66 Handicap

7 – Purple Powahouse
Breeding: What A Winter – Clarion Call by Kabool (GB)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: #Rachel Venniker -1.5kg
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 7 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He has consistent form lines to his credit. He is going into this contest fit and well. Rachel Venniker is booked to ride, and she takes the 1.5kgs off his back. Another honest run is expected, and he should be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Nice weight turnaround with number 4 on latest. Watch.

Race 3 – 13:25
1000m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 83 Handicap (F & M)

2 – Patants Heir
Breeding: William Longsword – Cosmic Light by Querari (GER)
Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 2 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She returns from a 16-week break. She is doing nicely at home but is not at peak fitness for this outing. This run will bring her on nicely for future races. We are hoping for an encouraging return to the races.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 16 wks. Best MR:82. Beaten by subsequent winner in latest. Should improve.

Race 3 – 13:25
1000m – Greyville Convention Centre MR 83 Handicap (F & M)

6 – Isn’t She Bonny
Breeding: Querari (GER) – Pretty Woman by Mogok (USA)
Trainer: Michael Roberts
Jockey: #Rachel Venniker -1.5kg
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 6 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

She has been a tad disappointing in her last two starts. The daughter of Querari is doing well at home and she is putting up nice work. The obvious concern is that she may be at her best on the turf. Rachel Venniker takes the 1.5kgs off her back and we are hoping to see her bounce back to her best.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:80. Better than last two runs. Is back on the polytrack and can improve.

Race 5 – 14:35

Trainer: MJ Odendaal
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 6 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He is much better than his last two starts against stronger company. He is back over his favourite course and distance, in the right class. He has been putting up very good work and is expected to finish in the first three.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2023.10.09. Best MR:80. Better than last two runs. Drops back to 1000m and can improve.

Race 7 – 15:52
1600m – www.tabgold.co.za MR 66 Handicap

Trainer: Siboniso Ngcobo
Jockey: #Rachel Venniker -1.5kg
Wgt: 62.0kg
Draw: 9 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

This will be his first run for the Siboniso Ngcobo stable. He has settled in nicely and is working very well at home. Rachel Venniker takes the 1.5kgs off his back and the yard feel that he has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Wright A J-2024.04.10. Best MR:78. Stable debut. Likes this C&D and can show.

Race 8 – 16:25
1400m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 68 Handicap (F & M)

3 – Hugsandhighfives
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Forest Lecture by Lecture (USA)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 3 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She is better than her recent form and she is doing nicely at home. The daughter of Master Of My Fate has dropped in the ratings and she takes a drop in class. It is a competitive field, but she should run well and can finish in the money.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:75. Better than recent form. Drops in trip and can run into the money.
