Fairview Preview – 7 June


Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R74.000, 11:55GMT+2

Race Summary: BIG BAY is the obvious form choice after two close up seconds. PARTERRE hasfour lengths to find on his debut, but was heavily supported, so may show big improvement. LUCIO and TRIAL RUN should also be thereabouts, whIle support for any of the four first timers should be monitored.


#7 Parterre, #2 Big Bay, #4 First Wicket Down, #5 Lucio

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R74.000, 12:30GMT+2

Race Summary: SPEECHMAKER should go close after two seconds. CALANDRA has also produced abrace of good efforts, and will be there. CABALLE made late progress on debut, and will improve. Plenty of others look to have chances.


#11 Speechmaker, #4 Calandra, #3 Caballe, #5 Flame Up

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1100m, Turf, R74.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Juvenile TIBETAN SURPRISE ran on well on debut, and has to be respected. COASTAL STORM and KATASHA should finish close to each other and both have chances. ALWAYS DANCING, HEART STONE, and LITTLE RED STAR are others who have definite claims.


#8 Tibetan Sunrise, #2 Katasha, #1 Coastal Storm, #7 Little Red Star

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R74.000, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: BREVIN went down narrowly trying the distance last time, and from an insidedraw should go one better. CRADLEOFGRADITUDE comes with some respectable Cape form though, and could make her debut for Sharon Kotzen a winning one. Those two should fight it out, with the two fillies CIRENCESTER ROSE and GINGER ROCK looking next best.

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R75.000, 14:15GMT+2

Race Summary: VOICES OF LIGHT looks sure to be suited by this trip, which he tries for the first time. Plenty of threats though, led by Grant Paddock pair COUNTRY ROCK and front runner LORD MARSHAL. DYNASTY’S BOY isn’t the most reliable, but needsto be respected, as does back in form LEADMAN. CHESTNUT WILD can upset at best.


#3 Voices Of Light, #4 Country Rock, #1 Lord Marshal, #11 Chestnut Wild

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R75.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: FLY THOUGHT scored a gutsy win on her second local appearance and can repeat. Top weight EPIC STORM has won three of four since arriving here though, and deserves maximum respect again. FLYING SQUADRON was a recent maiden winner in Cape Town, and can follow up with a reasonable mass. BELL TOWER has upset potential if repeating latest.


#3 Fly Thought, #1 Epic Storm, #5 Flying Squadron, #12 Bell Tower

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R61.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Very open. STRONG ‘N BRAVE will go close if as effective on turf. CHIEF BLACK HORSE’s latest should be ignored, and he has claims. GREAT CRUSADE has won his last two on poly, and has to be respected. ONE DESTINY is lightly raced and can improve further. SUNDAY FALLS is a bit off form, but may bounce back with Yeni up.


#7 Chief Black Horse, #6 Strong ‘N Brave, #8 Great Crusade, #14 Sunday Falls

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R75.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: AFLEET FLYER is holding form, and will be competitive. RINGS AND THINGS makes her local debut, and on best form would win this. FIRST SWALLOW finished well last time, and can go close. AL’S BELLS looks the one to beat though onher slightly unlucky second last time. Lightly weighted DINNER DATE can pop up at best.


#8 Al’s Bells, #3 Rings And Things, #18 Dinner Date, #1 Afleet Flyer

Fairview, 07.06.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R75.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: SUN UP has won her last two over this trip and is just as effective on turf. The one to beat. KEEPING SECRETS is better than her post maiden run, and is one to respect. IT’S A GIRL had smashing form before a 200 day break, but may need it. LIGHT ON HER TOES showed signs of life last time, and has a topjockey up. ANGEL JOLEE and LIQUID GOLD are others to consider.


#4 Sun Up, #7 Keeping Secrets, #3 Light On Her Toes, #2 It’s A Girl
