Greyville Preview – 21 August



Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R105.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: NINOTTO was having his first run after gelding and was a close up second. He is honest and expected to improve but has drawn wide. DOUBLE ESPRESSO drew wider and is trying the poly. His last run at Scottsville entitles him to the utmost respect. Filly CAPTAIN OF COLOUR made big improvement here last time when needing it after rest. Watch VALIENTE and the barrier triallers.

Race Summary: GOLDEN CHANCE won a competitive race at Scottsville and is an above average sort that comes in best weighted in this. She does show good speed and may relish a sprint race after rest. TRAVELLING LIGHT is next best in at the weights and ran a very encouraging race first time on poly. Expect more from her. CANDY GALORE had things go wrong last time. A danger at her best.

Race Summary: HOT MONEY was not disgraced in her Scottsville debut finishing just out the money after showing toe. He barrier here has yielded recent winners and she can only improve. MISS CHARLOTTE showed good pace on turf last time and since she is better on the poly could threaten in this. But she has drawn wide. CERSEI finished behind the former a run back but improved in blinkers.

Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: LA DUCHESSE is holding form well on turf and has gone close previously on poly. She has a plum draw and could take advantage against mostly inexperienced rivals. TEETOTAL has been knocking at the door recently and on some of her efforts must surely win a race. Big say here. JAMIE’S JOY could show more today as she has drawn well here. PROVOKING is one of a few that can upset.

Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R105.000, 15:00GMT+2

Race Summary: MISS MISSOURI has the form needed to win. She showed form on three different tracks and last time came from far back. But DANCING FEATHER is a well bred sort that was close up behind recent Grade 1 winner Gabor in a barrier trial and confirmed in her debut. In form trainer and rider. ROYAL KITTY could go all the way this longer trip. BLUSH OF DAWN made good improvement.

Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R70.000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: NORTHERN ROUTE caught the eye with a much improved run last time. It was his first run after rest and presumably he should come on with the run. WHAT A BLAST beat an improving sort last time and could realise more improvement back on turf. His penultimate was fair. ROCKY COAST was dangerous over 1400m last time. SOVEREIGN SOLDIER has a say. More in it.

Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R70.000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: THRU’ THE TREES was an upset winner here last time. She turned around previous poly efforts and has obviously matured so can follow up. LIVE AS ONEĀ  was making her poly debut when just behind her last time and can only improve. She is also lightly raced. INTO THE GROOVE showed signs of a form return and looks to have a better task here. EVERDENE could be anything at Greyville


#4 Thru’ The Trees, #5 Live As One, #1 Into The Groove, #3 Everdene

Greyville Polytrack, 21.08.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R88.000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: MARY O was not far off in a feature race. She is strengthening up as a newly turned three-year-old and hopefully the race doesn’t come too soon. MISS CALYPSO was on a roll on the poly before running over a trip too short. ETERNAL WORDS is in top form and can win again. KARATAGE is knocking hard at the door. OVER THE LIMIT won a gutsy race last time.


#7 Mary O, #1 Miss Calypso, #9 Eternal Words, #10 Karatage
