Scottsville Preview – 5 June



Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R100.000, 12:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Lot’s of variety in this racemeeting and sure to be strong payouts. WHAT A CAPTAIN may enjoy the competition in this after racing in the Highveld. GREAT STOHVANEN is a maiden but one with decent form and he is speedy so could relish racing over shorter today. The pair have drawn alongside in one and two respectively. BE HAPPY, drawn three, has been speedy at Greyville, respect.



#1 What A Captain, #4 Great Stohvanen, #6 Be Happy, #2 Duke’s Dozen

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R105.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: PRINCE OF PERSIA showed up well in his debut after being given an easy time of it in a barrier trial first time out. He is going about it the right way and can score. VALIENTE was speedy behind an experienced sort in his barrier trial at Greyville. May not mind the switch from poly to turf. TALIA AL GHUL met a subsequent Grade 1 winner on debut and held form last. Big say.


#5 Prince Of Persia, #9 Valiente, #10 Talia Al Ghul, #6 Quant Master

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R105.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: ALL THE WAY UP was supported and improved nicely on debut. He has only raced round the Greyville circuit but could be forward enough to score here. KRISHNIES JET met a fair sort last time and another runner behind him has come out to win since. He can open his account after a string of good runs. BABY SHOOZ showed up well in his trial. POINCIANA can only improve.


#7 All The Way Up, #1 Krishnies Jet, #8 Baby Shooz, #11 Poinciana

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R105.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: KNIGHT WARRIOR finished runner-up in his last even though switching from poly to turf. He was beaten favourite last but deserves another chance to make amends for his followers. SILVA’S FLING will be no pushover though. Granted he has been a bit disappointing but this could be the track and trip he is looking for. BRILLIANT DISGUISE is one of a few that have scope.


#10 Knight Warrior, #1 Silva’s Fling, #9 Brilliant Disguise, #11 Liverpool Champ

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R112.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: STRAWBERRY WINE made encouraging progress in her second local start. She has shown useful ability in the Cape but has drawn wide here. GENEROUS LADY has shown class and heads the weights-thankfully he has a four kilogram claim. DAME KELLY has drawn well after rest. She brings fair Highveld form into it. LUNA CHILD has been racing in features. More in it.


#10 Strawberry Wine, #1 Generous Lady, #5 Dame Kelly, #3 Luna Child

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R100.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Another tough race. PETRA drops in distance and it could be what she needs (being by Oratorio). She raced in a feature last and could show the strength of that. PROCRASTINATION showed promise in the Cape before being rested. Another Oratorio filly that will improve. AFRICAN ANGEL came from the clouds to win last time. Must be dangerous. SUNSHINE MIST has potential.


#2 Petra, #16 Procrastination, #10 African Angel, #3 Sunshine Mint

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R106.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: MOON IN JUNE was tested in the S A Fillies Guineas and was not disgraced. She drops in class and should go the longer distance so is the one to watch. EXPEDITE is another feature raced filly and one that has placed in one previously. This could be the race for her. RED AL is back home after racing in the Oaks. She has drawn well after rest. ZAGARA can improve.


#3 Moon In June, #1 Expedite, #2 Red Al, #6 Zagara

Scottsville, 05.06.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R74.000, 16:35GMT+2

Race Summary: On form three runners could fight it out. SEATTLE KID who ran a decent race on the poly last time. He has drawn well and can improve on his previous run at this venue. THE PRIVATE could enjoy the switch from poly to turf. His second career win is long overdue and he is holding form. ROMANESCA ran a fair race in his first try out of the maidens. Better drawn here can feature.


#1 Seattle Kid, #4 The Private, #5 Romanesca, #2 Arrow’s Mark
