Saturday 25th August 2018
Race 6 – 15:15
1000m – MR65 Hdcp
He is coming back from a 21 week rest, so fitness will be a question mark, however we are hopeful that he gives us the impression that he is improving. Time is running out for him now and if he doesn’t make a decent showing in the next 3 starts, we may call time on his racing career.
Winning Form comment: Struggled to find best form but break would have helped.
Race 9 – 17:05
1800m – MR 67 Hdcp
5 – Whiteleaf Hills
Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Heavelon v/d Hoven
Draw: 8 (13)
This is first run for the Hollywood Syndicate and trainer Clinton Binda. He is also coming off a shorter 14 week rest and is short of a grass gallop. As such we are expecting him to need the run badly, but it should bring him on nicely for his next few starts. He should give a decent account of himself and we are hoping for a top half finish.
Winning Form comment: WHITELEAF HILLS is an interesting entrant as the bay gelding showed fair potential in KZN and has now changed stables. He may need the outing after returning from a 14 week absence but could be worth following in this province particulaly on a galloping track.
