Race Summary: MONTREAL MIST and HEY DELILAH renew rivalry. The former knows the track now and is 2kg better off so may turn the neck beating around. The latter was trying the trip for the first time and may improve further. VIRTUOSA was not disgraced in her first run on the poly and has secured pole position. She could go all the way. MISS CHARLOTTE and YOSHIDA are the dark horses.

 

Selections:

#2 Montreal Mist, #1 Hey Delilah, #7 Virtuosa, #6 Miss Charlotte

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R200.000, 12:15GMT+2

 

Race Summary: ENJOY THE VIEW was not disgraced in a feature race over a bit further last time. He should have a big say in this race. BLONDE BABE had things go wrong in her official debut and knows the poly so could be the one with big improvement to come. She has the best of the draw. SPIRITOFTHEGROOVE may enjoy poly after winning on a Highland winter track. More can improve to earn.

 

Selections:

#1 Enjoy The View, #7 Blonde Babe, #6 Spiritofthegroove, #3 Able Surprise

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R105.000, 12:50GMT+2

 

Race Summary: AL JAZEERA looks to be bumping the right kind of field and he can open his account. But he is taking quite a drop in distance. BLOW ME DOWN has shown pace in the Highveld and could much improve on the polytrack. Has a decent draw to add to his chances. Older runner THE SANDS could take full advantage in this from a plum draw. He could relish the surface. More can improve.

 

Selections:

#6 Al Jazeera, #7 Blow Me Down, #1 The Sands, #9 Touch Of Fate

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R200.000, 13:25GMT+2

 

Race Summary: VISION TO KILL was a Grade 1 third placing in one of the hottest races for her sex. She has a good record on the poly and as she is best weighted should have a big say. But she needs to jump on terms. CHAMPENOIS finished ahead of her in a previous race but has the worse draw this time. She is however better off at the weights. Consider KATEECADOR, ISINGAMOYA and NIKIYA.

 

Selections:

#1 Vision To Kill, #4 Champenois, #3 Kateecador, #2 Isingamoya

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R200.000, 14:00GMT+2

 

Race Summary: This is the ideal race for HARD TO PLAY. He is best weighted and has a good record here. A negative is a wide draw. UNCLE CHARLIE has drawn better and could looks to be improving so could be a danger even if not well in at the weights. CUMULUS looks to have plenty in his favour and is in good form.He could get away. CONSTANTINE is very capable on his day. More can pop up.

 

Selections:

#6 Uncle Charlie, #1 Hard To Play, #2 Cumulus, #5 Constantine

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R200.000, 14:35GMT+2

 

Race Summary: WAITING FOR CHANGE has won the two of her last three on the poly and has much in her favour again. But CLASSIC GUARD and SWEET MARY LOU are better off at the weights on official merit ratings and either could show the form needed to win. The latter needs to show consistency. ABELIE is holding form and that Highveld form must be respected here. More can upset.

 

Selections:

#2 Waiting For Change, #1 Sweet Mary Lou, #3 Classic Guard, #4 Abelie

 

Greyville, 29.06.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R1.000.000, 15:15GMT+2

 

Race Summary: Splendid race. MATADOR MAN has a great record over this track and trip and his amazing finish could bag him another Million Mile-he won in 2017. UNAGI ran a cracker in the Horse Chestnut behind Soqrat and Cirillo and Anton Marcus gets the ride. He can better his 2018 3rd place finish. AFRICA RISING, CAMPHORATUS, SILENT CRUSADE are some of the many classy sorts in the race.

 

Selections:

#3 Matador Man, #5 Unagi, #1 Africa Rising, #13 Silent Crusade

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R200.000, 15:55GMT+2

 

Race Summary: VINSON has done little wrong and can complete a hat trick of wins. He has won on turf and poly and more importantly seems to love the mile trip. CALIENTE also won his last try over this track and trip and impressed before proving less effective on turf last time. Has the best of the draw. FINAL ATTEMPT is overdue and could beat them from a good draw. SEA URCHIN has a say.

 

Selections:

#5 Vinson, #2 Caliente, #3 Final Attempt, #1 Sea Urchin

 

Greyville Polytrack, 29.06.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R200.000, 16:30GMT+2

 

Race Summary: MASTER MAGIC brings strong Highveld form into the race. If he takes to the poly he will be a tough contender at these weights. POLLARD was a good second in a race that was run in record breaking time. Could show the strength of that form if staying the longer trip. BEFORE NOON was flying in his last start. Another serious runner who can improve back on the poly.

 

Selections:

#1 Master Magic, #3 Pollard, #5 Before Noon, #2 Throng

 

Best Win: #1 ENJOY THE VIEW                     

Best Value Bet: #5 VINSON                             

Best Longshot: #5 VINSON
