Saturday 03 June 2023
Hollywoodbets Scottsville

Race 4 – 13:25
1400m – Alesian Chief (2022) MR 110 Handicap

2 – Bowie
Breeding: Twice Over (GB) – Super Model by National Assembly (CAN)
Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 53.0kg
Draw: 2 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/1

His last run is better than what it looks on paper. He will enjoy the step up to 1400m and there looks to be a lot of speed in the race. He should get a good run in transit from barrier two and with just 53kgs to shoulder, he is expected to finish in the money.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:99. Is weighted to finish closer to number 10 on latest.

Race 7 – 15:18
1200m – South African Fillies Sprint (Grade 1) brought to you by The Witness

7 – Iphiko
Breeding: Trippi (USA) – Valor Red by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Mike de Kock
Jockey: Athandiwe Mgudlwa
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

She has had a very good preparation heading into this race and the stable are happy with her. The obvious question marks are whether she will see out the 1200m and we have not had a preparation run. The daughter of Trippi has work to do at the weights, but in terms of her well being, she should run a positive race.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 21 wks. Best MR:107. Very speedy. Not far off against males before the break.

Race 8 – 15:53
1200m – Golden Horse Sprint (Grade 1)

2 – Full Velocity
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Circle Of Speed (AUS) by Sebring (AUS)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Kabelo Matsunyane
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 2 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 40/1

The stable are very happy with Full Velocity and she has progressed with every run since the end of February. She has a good record in KZN and has won on this course previously. This is a very competitive field, but she carries a handy galloping mass of 54kgs. We are hoping for a positive effort.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:113. Loves this distance and can give the males a run for their money.

Race 9 – 16:28
1750m – World Sports Betting MR 94 Handicap

2 – El Rey Viene
Breeding: William Longsword – Brave Bid by Qui Danzig (USA)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: S’manga Khumalo
Wgt: 53.5kg
Draw: 2 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 12/1

He is nicely drawn in barrier two and is a horse that likes to race from a forward position. He is maturing and is getting stronger with age. He does meet a competitive field and this run will bring him on. We are hoping for a positive effort.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2022.10.04. Best MR:85. Fair latest over further. Has cracked a neat draw and shoulders a light weight.

Race 9 – 16:28
1750m – World Sports Betting MR 94 Handicap

5 – Kitchakal – SCRATCHED (Overreached RIght Front Fetlock)
Breeding: Master Of My Fate – Daphne Garland by Fort Wood (USA)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 5 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He has been doing well and has been racing consistently in his career. This will be his first attempt over 1750m and his breeding suggests that he will not have any issues with the extra distance on offer. A lot will depend on what pace the race is run and if he switches off early, he is more than capable of finishing in the first three.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:93. Won latest in good fashion and the form line has worked out well. Can repeat.
