Hollywoodbets Greyville

Race 3 – 13:00
1800m – Track & Ball Gaming Maiden Plate (F & M)

3 – Hydrangea
Breeding: Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) – Tally Blue (USA) by Dixieland Band (USA)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 3 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

Her last run in yielding conditions was disappointing. The course and distance will suit her well. It is encouraging that Keagan de Melo retains the ride and in an open contest, we are hoping that she puts her best foot forward.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:59. Weak latest. Makes local debut and can feature if repeating penultimate run.

Race 5 – 14:10
1600m – Kings Cup (Listed)

5 – Shampompo Shampizi
Breeding: Var (USA) – Light The Moon by Victory Moon
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 5 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

He is a winner of his last two starts. He takes another step up in class and meets a strong field in the Listed Kings Cup. It is encouraging that Warren Kennedy retains the ride and with just 52kgs on his back,we are hoping for a positive run. He is in a good space and has an each way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:89. There have been multiple winners from his recent form line. Goes for hat-trick of wins.

Race 6 – 14:45
1400m – Umzimkhulu Stakes (Grade 3)

8 – Sashay Away
Breeding: Var (USA) – Rockaberry Lane by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 8 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She has had a very good prep heading into this contest and her trainer was happy with her gallop during the week. She does meet a strong Grade 3 Umzimkhulu Stakes field, but we do expect an encouraging return which will set her up for the KZN season.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 15 wks. Best MR:89. Just won latest. Faces toughest task to date, but has plenty of scope.

Race 8 – 15:55
1000m – KwaZulu-Natal Stakes (Listed)

4 – Full Velocity
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Circle Of Speed (AUS) by Sebring (AUS)
Trainer: Sean Tarry
Jockey: Keagan de Melo
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 4 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

She produced a good comeback run in the Grade 3 Sycamore Sprint last time and is holding her form well. Keagan de Melo will do duty once again and she has a good winning chance.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:95. Good comeback run in a Grade 3. The one to beat.

1200m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 69 Handicap
