Wednesday 24 March 2021
Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack
Race 4 – 14:50
1400m – Gold Circle Horses To Follow Merit Rated 68 Handicap (F&M)
13 – You Deserve It
Breeding: Pathfork (USA) x Stargazer Pink by Jallad (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Reserve Runner
Draw: * (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
She is the first reserve here, so we will be hoping for a withdrawal in order for her to take part. This is a division where she should have a much better chance of being competitive and if building on her last start at this course, she should go into contention at the business end.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:72. *Carded To Race – 22.03.2021.
Race 5 – 15:25
1600m – Gold Circle Racing Youtube Channel Maiden Plate (Fillies)
9 – Indomavel
Breeding: Pomodoro – Russian Foxtrot by National Emblem
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Ashton Arries
Draw: 9 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1
She hasn’t shown much so far, but now steps up to the mile where she is bred to be far more effective. Drawn out at gate 9 in a relatively small field, the stable is confident that she will be running on in the closing stages but we’ll need to see considerable improvement before she is tipped to the public.
Winning Form Comment: Sister to: RIKITIKITANA 8g (29: 4, 9), ROCKIN RUSSIAN 6m (23: 3, 9). 2nd run after rest. Excuses in comeback run. Should strip fitter.
Race 7 – 16:33
1000m – Form Guide www.gallop.co.za Merit Rated 82 Handicap
2 – Kings Road
Breeding: Vercingetorix – Kimberley Coast (AUS) by Danehill (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Gabriel Pieterse (-4.0kg)
Draw: 2 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1
He lands a plum draw in a competitive race and with the 4kg claimer up once again, he should be a very big runner from a forward position. At the very least, the stable expect to see him finish in the first 3.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. In good form. Is 3kgs better off at the weights with number 9 on latest.
Race 8 – 17:08
1000m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Merit Rated 76 Hcp (F&M)
8 – Purple Merchant
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Savannah Air by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Draw: 8 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1
She returns to racing after a brief stint on the farm which has done her the world of good. She is fit and well and the stable give her every chance of keeping her unbeaten record intact.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 19 wks. Best MR:83. Unbeaten filly. Would have strengthened during the break. Hat-trick chance.
