Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Gabriel Pieterse (-4.0kg)
Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 2 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

It is a small, but very competitive field and cases can be made for a few contenders, namely Godswood and Spydas Corner. In all likelihood, he will probably have a better chance of finding third or forth place.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Narrow winner in latest and the form of that race has been franked.

4 – Spydas Corner
Breeding: What A Winter – Clarion Call by Kabool (GB)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Muzi Yeni
Wgt: 58.5kg
Draw: 4 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/2

He returns from a short break and may just be in need of the run. Having climbed in the ratings, he still has more to come ability-wise and the stable are expecting to see him give another good account of himself in this competitive field.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:91. Unlucky in latest. The 3rd horse (Double Espresso) has won since.

Race 3 – 13:05
1200m – www.tabgold.co.za Maiden Plate (F&M)

7 – Indomavel
Breeding: Pomodoro – Russian Foxtrot by National Emblem
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 7 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1

She has come on nicely since that improved second start and her work at home has been solid. She might want a touch more ground, but Lyle Hewitson retains the ride and she could just find the top 5 places.

Winning Form Comment: Sister to: RIKITIKITANA 8g (29: 4, 9), ROCKIN RUSSIAN 6m (23: 3, 9). Rested 10 wks. Made some improvement last time. Hewitson retains ride.

Race 6 – 14:50

1 – Phinda Mzala
Breeding: Philanthropist (USA) – Facinating Filly by Antonius Pius (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Gabriel Pieterse (-4.0kg)
Wgt: 60.5kg
Draw: 1 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

He is drawn on the inside, where the going has appeared to be unfavourable in recent meetings. It is a big, competitive field but he has the added advantage of the 4kg claimer. The stable give him a good place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:87. Runner-up in last three outings. Speedy sort. The one to beat.

Race 8 – 16:00
1400m – Gold Circle Racing YouTube Channel MR 83 Handicap (F&M)

9 – Simply Russian
Breeding: Captain Of All – Russian Foxtrot by National Emblem
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Lyle Hewitson
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 9 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 16/1

She has gate 9 to overcome after a disappointing run last time out. Her work at home has been very good, she has top jockey, Lyle Hewitson, up and the stable are expecting to see her improve significantly here.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:88. Is held on moderate latest. Won maiden on this course. Chance on penultimate run.

Race 9 – 16:35
1750m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future MR 77 Handicap (F&M)

8 – You Deserve It      
Breeding: Pathfork (USA) – Stargazer Pink by Jallad (USA)
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 52.5kg
Draw: 8 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 25/1

She won her maiden over a similar trip in Gauteng and now travels to KZN for her handicap debut after a modest post maiden attempt last time. With 52.5kg to shoulder, she can show big improvement to finish in the first five but she’d be considered an unlikely winner at this stage.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:72. Poor post maiden debut. May be suited to this course. Can improve.

9 – Time To Roll (pictured)
Breeding: Jackson – Arcetri Dawn (AUS) by Bel Esprit (AUS)
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 9 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 4/1

She has a tricky draw of 9 to overcome and this will be her first outing at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. With that said, she has done enough work at home and she gets the services of Anton Marcus who rode her to victory on debut. With a bit of luck in running, she should be a leading contender here.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:86. Beaten narrowly in handicap debut and the form of that race has been franked.
