Hollywoodbets Scottsville

Race 1 – 12:30
1100m – Open tabGold Account – 031 314 1874 Maiden Juvenile Plate(F)

10 – Imbejeje
Breeding: Var (USA) – Ice Maiden by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Glen Kotzen
Jockey: Anton Marcus
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 10 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

Greenness beat her on debut, as it was almost as if she didn’t know what to do after she hit the front 300m from the finish line. She would’ve learnt a lot from that experience and the run would’ve brought her on nicely. Anton Marcus worked her earlier this week and he was very happy with her work. If all goes to plan and with natural progression after her debut, she should be very competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Showed good potential on debut. Found betting support that day and will be looking to make amends.

Here is the replay of her debut run, two weeks ago.

Race 3 – 13:40
1000m – Commentary Available – 031 362 1101 Pinnacle Stakes

2 – Candy Galore
Breeding: Noordhoek Flyer – Wild Almond by Fort Wood (USA)
Trainer: Gareth van Zyl
Jockey: Warren Kennedy
Wgt: 56.0kg
Draw: 2 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She is a 1000m specialist and should love this slight drop in trip, after travelling far too keenly over the 1100m last time out. With this being her 2nd run after a rest, she will be fitter now. Traces appears to be the one to beat, but we feel that Candy Galore can challenge and earn a stake cheque here.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:96. Decent c&d record. Fitter now and can threaten males.

Here is a replay of her recent comeback run, when she clearly went to quickly in the early parts.

Race 4 – 14:15
1600m – Win Big With Soccer Knowledge Maiden Plate

10 – Catch Me Holly
Breeding: Pomodoro – Strait To Bed by Rakeen (USA)
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Jarred Lee Samuel
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 10 (15 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He has had a few issues with his mouth which seems to be sorted now. He seems to be doing well at home, so we can expect to see some improvement from him now.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Binda C-2020.12.17. Blinkers OFF. Best MR:62. First run for Rich camp. The blinkers get removed. Can improve.

Race 5 – 14:50
1600m – Visit www.trackandball.co.za Maiden Plate

1 – Order Me A Bunny
Breeding: Eightfold Path (USA) – Modraj (GB) by Machiavellian (USA)
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: Kaidan Brewer (-4.0kg)
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 1 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He was very green in his first run, which cost him dearly. With that said, he will relish this step up in trip to the mile. Having shown big improvement in his work at home and with the blinkers fitted for this follow up run, we can expect to see him finish a lot closer.

Winning Form Comment: Brother to: JUST CRUISED IN 7g (34: 4,14), ALAREEF 10g (13: 4, 5). Blinkers ON. Slow away on debut. Blinkers should keep his mind on the task.

9 – Protea Pride
Breeding: Capetown Noir – Rose North by Northern Guest (USA)
Trainer: Corinne Bestel
Jockey: Denis Schwarz
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 9 (16 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He is still quite immature and inexperienced. From a tricky draw, the plan will be to drop him out and hopefully we see him finish off strongly.

Winning Form Comment: Poor latest when tested over this c&d. Lightly raced and capable of better.

Race 6 – 15:25
1600m – Gold Circle Horses To Follow Merit Rated 71 Handicap

14 – Mighty Smart
Breeding: Archipenko (USA) – Stan’s Smarty Girl (USA) by Smarty Jones (USA)
Trainer: Paul Lafferty
Jockey: Keagan De Melo
Wgt: 56.5kg
Draw: 14 (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He has landed on a very competitive rating and looks well overdue for that second career win. He is working well at home and should be able to make up a lot of ground down the longer Hollywoodbets Scottsville run in, from a very wide draw. This will be treated as a prep run for a 1950m test coming up soon.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. Didn’t stay the marathon trip in latest. Drawn wide but the drop in trip should suit.

Here is an encouraging piece of work from the grey Mighty Smart, working alongside stable companion Share Holder.
