Scottsville Preview – 12 June



Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R105.000, 12:25GMT+2

Race Summary: RAMPANCY showed inexperience but when urged showed good pace winning her trial here. She can only improve. KATIE’S TREASURE moved well in her trial over shorter here but then didn’t perform well at Greyville. However that was a feature and she could show the strength of that form. HOT MONEY was speedy in her trial. ROSE MOON can improve. POINT OF SALE is well bred.



#8 Rampancy, #6 Katie’s Treasure, #4 Hot Money, #9 Rose Moon

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R105.000, 13:00GMT+2

Race Summary: WINTER RETREAT would have found her run after rest a bit short and will relish the step up in trip especially from draw one. Chance. But the one to beat may be RAINBOW UNICORN if she improves on her debut run. She showed promise from a wide draw there but has drawn wider on her track debut. ARCTIC PRINCESS showed something in her trial and has drawn well. SAUCY BROAD has a say.


#15 Rainbow Unicorn, #14 Arctic Princess, #1 Winter Retreat, #3 Saucy Broad

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R112.000, 13:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Wide open race. WHORLY WHORLY made progress in his last few and now has a 2,5kg claim. He is also dropping in class a bit. ISCA is in top form and can win anywhere. Should be right there. MISS FRANKEL scored an inch perfect feature win but has received a hike in ratings. Rested she must be respected. ANTONY HOTSPUR caught the eye last and MY MAJESTIC GLORY can pop up.


#2 Whorly Whorly, #3 Isca, #4 Miss Frankel, #7 Antony Hotspur

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R74.000, 14:10GMT+2

Race Summary: BEDAZZLED JOKER and FIVES WILD lock horns again and at better weight terms he could extract revenge. However the latter is enjoying himself at present and could complete a hat trick. SPIRIT OF SONG had all manner of things go wrong last time and he is a lot better than that run. LUPO needed his last race and should prefer this trip again. FLORENCE is not out of it.


#9 Bedazzled Joker, #1 Fives Wild, #4 Spirit Of Song, #2 Lupo

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R74.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Juvenile PADRE PIO is highly regarded and is quickly tried in open company after a feature. He races like a seasoned sort and should show his class with each and every run. TECHNO CAPTAIN is a hard knocking older individual and he is at his best at this venue. Could prove a tough adversary. SHANGHAI TANG brings Highveld form into it. MASTER SAM and MARCH PREVIEW can earn.


#8 Padre Pio, #7 Techno Captain, #11 Shanghai Tang, #13 Master Sam

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R74.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: HOPEFUL has not been disgracing herself on the Greyville poly. She has dropped in ratings and could make a fair Scottsville debut here. OLOYE is another that was originally from the Cape. She has been getting better and could come out firing after rest. SCARLET CHILL won her local debut after fair Cape runs and can follow up in this. ARIZONA SUNSET is a danger on her latest.


#12 Hopeful, #5 Oloye, #6 Scarlet Chill, #1 Arizona Sunset

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R74.000, 15:55GMT+2

Race Summary: BARINOIS is in good nick and can win on turf or poly. She looks to have much in her favour except for a wide draw. However leading rider Muzi Yeni is more than capable of giving her every chance. ISLA MORADA finished behind her last and had excuses. She has drawn better than her and rates a chance. LOVE BUTTON is better than her last try. Many more can pop up.


#4 Barinois, #1 Isla Morada, #9 Love Button, #5 Into The Groove

Scottsville, 12.06.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R105.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: JUST PRIME is a lot better than his last race. It was his first try over this track and trip and he must improve. LEICESTER SQUARE is an interesting runner here. He just just two and dropped in the deep end. If he jumps well he could threaten. FRANKIE TWO SHOES and FIRST CALL seem capable of winning a race like this. FARM YARD TRACTOR must have a say as well.


#4 Just Prime, #14 Leicester Square, #3 Frankie Two Shoes, #5 First Call
