Hollywoodbets Scottsville

Race 1 – 11:35
1200m – Mustard & Knoesen Work Riders Handicap

1 – Purple Powahouse
Breeding: What A Winter – Clarion Call by Kabool (GB)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: *Andile Ngcobo
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 1 (8 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

He ran a good race when third in his last start over this distance on the polytrack. It is a work riders race and Andile Ngcobo knows the son of What A Winter well from work in the mornings. A good run is expected and he can be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Finished well in latest. Has placed in both runs on this course.

Race 4 – 13:15
1000m – Red Alert Security Maiden Plate (F & M)

1 – Willow Creek
Breeding: What A Winter – Wind Chill by Silvano (GER)
Trainer: Louis Goosen
Jockey: Chase Maujean
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

She over raced and the jockey’s saddle slipped in running over 1600m last time. The daughter of What A Winter drops back to the 1000m and we are hoping that the straight course will suit her. It is a competitive field, we are hoping to see her settle and show improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:53. Drops back to minimum trip. Needs to show more to feature.

Race 5 – 13:45
1200m – Mascor Maiden Plate

11 – Benni In The Area
Breeding: William Longsword – Kilauea by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Serino Moodley
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 11 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is better than his last start on the polytrack as he was in need of the outing and had to overcome an awkward barrier position. He is doing very well at home and the stable expect a much better run from him. Plaza Accord is the horse to beat on paper, but the son of William Longsword is expected to be involved at the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Pacifiers OFF. Best MR:79. Gets pacifiers removed. Big chance if repeating penultimate run.

Race 6 – 14:15
1200m – Savages FC Maiden Plate

16 – Thisiswhatitmeans
Breeding: What A Winter – Shufoog (AUS) by Star Witness (AUS)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Richard Fourie
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 16 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He has made significant progress since the gelding, his breathing concerns are far reduced and his work has been of a much higher standard. He is fit enough for his return after he had a gallop at Hollywoodbets Greyville and another gallop on the grass at Summerveld. He is very forward and is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Gelded 2023.05.24. Had excuses in latest. Has been gelded and must be respected.

Race 7 – 14:50
1200m – RH Construction & Concrete Floors MR 69 Handicap (F & M)

7 – Chelsea Blue
Breeding: Canford Cliffs (IRE) – African Lily by Horse Chestnut
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Sean Veale
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 7 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

She is very well in herself and has been showing some nice work at home. Her last run was a tad disappointing, but the stable feel that it could have been too close to her previous run. She is back on turf and if reproducing her homework, she is definitely capable of running into the first four.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:69. Had excuses in latest. Drops back to 1200m and should be cherry-ripe.
