Greyville Preview – 13 March

RACE BY RACE PREVIEWS: GREYVILLE POLYTRACK@2019.03.13

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: COMET CRYSTAL has fair Highveld form. She can open her account if taking to the poly. SUMMER DAY is knocking hard at the door and has a better draw. But she seems to leave it late. Hopefully she can get the timing right. RUBY SLIPPERS had the best of the draw but had things go wrong. She is better than her last try. VALKYRIE SILK could be better than her form suggests.

Selections:

#1 Comet Crystal, #2 Summer Day, #4 Ruby Slippers, #10 Valkyrie Silk

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R105.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: MANOLETE made good improvement in his second start. He has been gelded and from a plum draw could go on to score. MOKOKO has been a bit luckless and should have scored by now. May overcome his draw early and go on with it. WHITE CEDAR has shown enough to win races. He has been rested and has the best of the draw so could trouble the favourites. DONS ASSEMBLY has a shout.

Selections:

#8 Manolete, #1 Mokoko, #2 White Cedar, #3 Dons Assembly

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R100.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: SOLID GOLD seems to be improving now. He has been very green previously and may have needed time. A four kilogram claim should boost his chances if given a positive ride. SEA URCHIN is going for a fourth win in a row and ninth overall – a splendid record from a humble pedigree. Every chance again. RONNIE ROCKET is another super useful sort always up for a challenge.

Selections:

#5 Solid Gold, #1 Sea Urchin, #3 Ronnie Rocket, #4 Buckleberry

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R80.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: RUMBLEINTHEJUNGLE has been a bit costly to follow but this might be his best distance and he looks to be meeting the right kind of field. However stable mate STEALTH ADMIRAL may not let him get away with it. He has shown some potential and could prefer racing on the poly again. TIAGO REAL could surprise as he is fitted with blinkers after disappointing. LUCARA should be there.

Selections:

#1 Rumbleinthejungle, #2 Stealth Admiral, #6 Tiago Real, #4 Lucara

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R94.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL met stronger recently and could take full advantage in his third run after rest. He looks better than his record of three wins from 10 starts. ZANZIBARIAN was an eye catching second after rest last time. He could be back on the up. CLOUDS OF WITNESS has had some battles but is probably still maturing. HADDINGTON, JACK OF HEARTS and WHAT A SCORCHER add to it.

Selections:

#1 Brighteyebushytail, #3 Zanzibarian, #5 Clouds Of Witness, #8 Haddington

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R105.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: DUKE’S DOZEN just found one better after moving up nicely last time. He made some improvement and could go on to make amends here. ROY’S PHYSCO finished runner-up in his last three and will not make it easy. He can finally get it right. ISIKHETO has finished behind ROY’S PHYSCO in his last two but seems capable of better. JUMPING CASTLE won’t be far off either.

Selections:

#1 Duke’s Dozen, #4 Roy’s Physco, #2 Isikheto, #3 Jumping Castle

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R79.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: GIMMIE A COHIBA has very fair West Cape form. He could be strong here but races from a wide draw on his polytrack debut. One to watch. VICTORIOUS MAN ran a nice race in his first try out of the maidens and his stable is back inform again. NOBLE JOSHUA can’t be faulted and should be right with VICTORIOUS MAN again. SPACE MERCHANT could have more to come after winning last.

Selections:

#8 Gimmie A Cohiba, #4 Victorious Man, #1 Noble Joshua, #6 Space Merchant

Greyville Polytrack, 13.03.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R79.000, 17:15GMT+2

Race Summary: GRANDE MAESTRO could be looking for the longer trip now. He was not disgraced over this track and trip earlier. ZARATOS did well from a wide draw last time and has a better position this time so should have every chance. MAA NONU has been progressing and could have more to come on his handicap debut. GIBRALTAR GREEN lost form in the Cape. He could enjoy the poly. Open.

Selections:

#3 Zaratos, #6 Grande Maestro, #2 Maa Nonu, #7 Gibraltar Green

Best Win: #1 COMET CRYSTAL

Best Value Bet: #1 BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL

Best Longshot: #1 BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL
