Greyville Preview – 10 April



Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R105.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: JERRY THE JUGGLER was backed and showed good pace on debut. Should have come on from that and over the minimum trip will take some catching. Fellow juvenile JUSTAGUYTHING did well in his trial, and should be respected. Of the older runners, BIRTHDAY BOY and NOBLE BEAT both have enough form to threaten.



#5 Jerry The Juggler, #8 Justaguything, #1 Birthday Boy, #2 Noble Beat

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R82.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: GINGER BISCUIT needs things to go her way, but looks close to her next win. FLAMENCO DANCER is holding form though, and will challenge strongly. Top weight AMBER FURST could surprise back on the poly, while NOEMI also has shock potential back to a sprint with a 4kg claimer. CONNECT ME and ABOVE ELEVEN have claims in an open contest.


#10 Ginger Biscuit, #6 Flamenco Dancer, #11 Noemi, #1 Amber Furst

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R105.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: HEY JUDE has been frustrating to follow, but could get it right in this limited line up. Plenty with chances though, and ALABAMA SLIDE can build on a fair poly debut. ALLEZ LES BLEU is far better than her latest. CALL ME TONIGHT, QUEEN MAKEDA and HIT THE GAS all deserve consideration as well.


#5 Hey Jude, #10 Alabama Slide, #2 Allez Les Bleu, #6 Hit The Gas

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R100.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: HEART OF A LEGEND is ultra consistent, and from pole position with Marcus up this could be the day. PETRA just failed over shorter last time, and appears a big danger. STAR IN THE SKY won her maiden on the poly by many, and hasfaced stronger in Cape Town. OOH LA LA and GORGEOUS GUEST are others with definite claims.


#4 Heart Of A Legend, #5 Petra, #6 Star In The Sky, #3 Gorgeous Guest

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R74.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: PHILOS just prevailed on his first poly outing, and can do so again against similar. Another wide open one though, and MARCH PREVIEW can follow up onhis latest easy win. PANTSULA and GRANDE MAESTRO are both consistent, and can’t be far away from their next win. THE PRIVATE and SAUVAGE demand respectas well.


#2 Philos, #6 March Preview, #8 Pantsula, #9 Grande Maestro

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R105.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: APPLE MAGIC stayed on over slightly shorter on poly debut, and has a decent chance in this weak field. MISS JAGGER looks a danger on form, while ORIENT EXPRESS and BELLE OF PARIS should both earn again. MAI DANCER could be the surprise package.


#8 Apple Magic, #1 Miss Jagger, #2 Orient Express, #3 Belle Of Paris

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R74.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: IMPERIAL ROYAL knows how to win by narrow margins, and appears well handicapped again. STORMBORNE THUNDER went close straight out of the maidens though, and would be a narrow first choice. LADY ABIGAIL won that race, and has solid claims in this one as well if repeating. BOLD BEAUTY and CHATTY CATHY are worth considering for the upset.


#9 Stormborne Thunder, #2 Imperial Royal, #4 Lady Abigail, #7 Bold Beauty

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R74.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: JANICE’S SECRET finished strongly last time, and now from a good draw can go one better. That formline brings HOLY FLAME right into it, as well as top weight SWEET PRESERVE, who scraped in in a blanket finish. JOSEPHINE BAKER didn’t fire last time, but has to be included. SHADOW HUNTER is limited but with 52kg in this class has to be respected


#4 Janice’s Secret, #11 Shadow Hunter, #9 Holy Flame, #5 Josephine Baker

Greyville Polytrack, 10.04.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R82.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: AFRICAN ANGEL was a fluent winner first time on the poly, and should be competitive in this class. LITTLE BRISTOL did well in her first run out of the maidens, and has a shout. TOMBOLA came back to best last time, and must go in. MOCHA ROSE and INTO THE GROOVE have claims in a tricky end to a tricky day.


#2 African Angel, #6 Little Bristol, #8 Tombola, #4 Into The Groove


Best Value Bet: #2 AFRICAN ANGEL

Best Longshot: #2 AFRICAN ANGEL
