Sunday 16th February 2020
Hollywoodbets Scottsville

Race 2 – 13:10
1400m – Maiden Plate (F&M)

10 – Anika The Angel
Trainer: Alyson Wright
Jockey: Tristan Godden
Wgt: 60.0kg
Draw: 10 (18 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 2/1

She gave a good account of herself when returning from a 30 week absence last time and the run would’ve brought her on nicely. Returning this Sunday over the same trip and once again she finds a tricky draw to negotiate, however she does have the gate speed and Tristan Godden will be looking to place her close to the front where she seems to settle well. With the expected improvement to come, this Wylie Hall filly should be right there at the business end and we give her another good each-way chance.

Winning Form Comment: Eye-catching comeback when set pace from a wide draw. Expect bold effort.

Race 7 – 16:05
1950m – UmThombothi Stakes (Non-Black Type)

2 – Seattle Force
Trainer: Stuart Pettigrew
Jockey: Marco van Rensburg
Wgt: 59.0kg
Draw: 2 (13 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He makes the trip down to KZN for the first time, where we plan to have him stabled for the next few months and this will be a nice test for him to kick off his winter campaign. Drawn in gate 2, rider Marco van Rensburg should have no issues finding the front at the off and if he settles well enough, he can win this. He is in very good shape and on his best form, he is the one to beat.

Winning Form Comment: Big chance if manages to set the pace. Reunites with Van Rensburg.
