Wednesday 27 January 2021
Hollywoodbets Greyville Polytrack
Race 4 – 14:25
170m – Soccer Any15 Merit Rated 70 Hcp (F&M)
13 – You Deserve It
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Reserve Runner
Draw: * (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1
Currently, the first reserve and may be a doubtful starter depending on travelling logistics from Gauteng. She isn’t the most straight forward filly around, as far as rides are concerned, so a decent draw is imperative. A decision to run her here will be made prior to race day.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:72. Shed maiden over this distance. Tries poly and can improve.
Race 5 – 15:00
1400m – Gold Circle Racing YouTube Channel Merit Rated 77 Handicap
3 – Purple Powahouse
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Raymond Danielson
Draw: 3 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2
We are trying him over this 1400m trip, a trip that is his absolute maximum distance. The instructions that will be given to Raymond Danielson will be to ride him patiently, just behind the leading line. He is fit and well and if he sees out the trip, he will be the horse to beat.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Good latest win. Big Sky Country has come out and won since.
Race 6 – 15:35
1400m – www.trackandball.co.za Merit Rated 79 Hcp (F&M)
1 – Simply Russian
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Draw: 1 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1
She comes off the back of an impressive win in her last start, when bouncing back to form and there is every possibility that she will carry that form through to this race. Her work at home has been solid and the Garth Puller stable are expecting another very big run from her.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:88. Most impressive in latest win over this c&d. Got three pound penalty. Respect again.
Race 7 – 16:08
1000m – Track & Ball Gaming Merit Rated 78 Handicap
5 – Kings Road
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Gabriel Pieterse (-4.0kg)
Draw: 5 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
He is doing well at home and appears to be well placed in this MR 78 handicap. From a plum draw, he will handy from the word go and if all goes to plan, the stable are expecting him to give a good account of himself.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:81. Speedy sort. Won only attempt over this c&d. Don’t ignore.
Race 8 – 16:45
1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Merit Rated 67 Hcp (F&M)
7 – Arctic Princess
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Stuart Randolph
Draw: 7 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1
She was given another 5-point penalty after going back-to-back and winning again last time out, taking her merit rating to 68. With that said, she has certainly proven to be effective over this 1200m tip on the poly, and if handling the 60.5kg on her back, she’ll be a big contender once again.
Winning Form Comment: Ex Kotzen GS-2020.09.06. 3rd run after rest. Best MR:75. Unbeaten for Rich camp. Hat-trick chance.
