Race 1 – 12:45
1100m – Race Card www.goldcircle.co.za Maiden Juvenile Plate

13 – Spina Zonke
Breeding: Judpot (USA) – Winter Wood by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Glen Kotzen
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 13 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

One of the more forward two-year-old colts in the Glen Kotzen stable, he has progressed very well leading up to his debut performance. He is a very smart looking individual and on what he is showing in his work at home, we’ll be expecting a big performance first up. He should have a solid each-way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Judpot colt (Cost R100 000).

Race 2 – 13:20
1000m – Win With Soccer www.tabgold.co.za Maiden Plate

6 – Sihamba Sonke
Breeding: Querari (GER) – Trojan Belle by Centenary (USA)
Trainer: Duncan Howells
Jockey: Thabiso Gumede (-2.5kg)
Wgt: 57.5kg
Predicted Betting: 50/1

She appears to be showing quite a bit of early speed and hasn’t been finishing off her races very well. As such, the stable have opted to drop her back to sprints and the blinkers remain fitted. With the 2,5kg claimer booked for the ride, we’ll be expecting to see some improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:53. Trapped wide in latest. Tries minimum trip and can improve.

Race 3 – 13:55
1400m – Track & Ball Fixed Odds 031 314 1155 Maiden Plate

6 – Masango Machine
Breeding: What A Winter – Lucky Tuesday (AUS) by Authorized (IRE)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Donovan Dillon
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 6 (14 Runners)
Predicted Betting:15/10

He has shown steady improvement in his last two starts and the stable feel that the step up in trip will be to his advantage. He meets a field with not much depth to it and he certainly appears to be one of the leading contenders on form. His work is pleasing in the lead-up and he appears stronger in himself, which should also assist his chances. Donovan Dillon retains the ride.

Winning Form Comment: Placed: S12 (4 wks). Best MR:72. Good improvement with the tongue-tie last time. Can win in this field.

Race 5 – 15:05
1950m – Visit www.trackandball.co.za Merit Rated 80 Hcp (F&M)

1 – Mrs Hotline
Breeding: Irish Flame – Galingale by National Emblem
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Donovan Dillon
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 1 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

She was obviously very disappointing in her last start on the Polytrack, where she raced on the inside and there appeared to be a major track bias against horses who were on the fence. As such, we have drawn a line through that performance. She still appears to be in good form and her work is pleasing in the lead up to this test. From a very favourable draw, she should get the run of the race and can bounce back to feature in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Won: G20,G18,(18 wks). Ex Crawford B-2020.10.28. Best MR:80. Much better than poor latest. Can improve back against her own sex.

Race 6 – 15:40
1000m – Gold Circle Racing YouTube Channel Merit Rated 70 Handicap

9 – Alphamikefoxtrot
Breeding: Var (USA) – Sharp Mistress by Tamburlaine (IRE)
Trainer: Darryl Moore
Jockey: Stuart Randolph
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 9 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

He seems to be in a good place at home, but there doesn’t appear to be many suitable races for him on the Polytrack over the next few weeks. As such, the stable have decided to take their chances and run him down the straight at Hollywoodbets Scottsville for the first time. Stuart Randolph retains the ride and he should have a decent place chance.

Winning Form Comment: Won: G12,G10,G10,G14(28 wks). Best MR:66. Consistent form. Makes course debut and can earn.

11 – Jozi Hustle
Breeding: Great Britain (GB) – Daintree Dancer (AUS) by Mossman (AUS)
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Jarred Lee Samuel
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 11 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 33/1

He was disappointing once again last time, but the stable admittedly erred in removing the blinkers and they will be refitted for this run. The drop in trip, back to the 1000m, will also suit and we’ll be looking to see some improvement here.

Winning Form Comment: Won: G10 (50 wks). Ex Binda C-2020.11.08. Blinkers ON. Best MR:79. Gets blinkers re-fitted. Can improve back up the straight.

Race 8 – 16:50
1600m – Hollywoodbets Bright Future Maiden Plate (3YO-Fillies)

1 – Shape Of You
Breeding: Duke Of Marmalade (IRE) – Song Of Victory by Victory Moon
Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

She is doing very well, on the back of a good performance last time out. The stable have her in a very good place right now and believe she is ready to run her best race this time. From a good draw, we’ll be expecting to see her break the maiden ranks this time around.

Winning Form Comment: Placed: E16, D18 (6 wks). Tried hard in latest and the form of that race has been franked. The one to beat.

Here is a replay of her last outing, when overcoming a wide draw to finish third.
