Greyville Preview – 6 October



Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R100.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: DUKE OF YORK has shown good pace in all starts and so could go all the way especially as he jumps from a good draw. Highveld raiders ORCHID STREET and INSIDE POLITICS having drawn wide should make his task easier. But unknown quantities like FRED, HAN SOLO and OLMECA BLACK could be live contenders with improvement sure to come – follow the betting moves.

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R100.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: LUNDY’S LAD got his head in front after the line on local debut. It was hislocal debut and racing after rest gives his performance even more credit. But this could be tougher. BRASS BELL has been running on strongly in sprintsand should relish this track and trip as well. Both have drawn alongside. BABY SHOOZ caught the eye in a feature – big respect. More in it.


#11 Lundy’s Lad, #3 Brass Bell, #7 Baby Shooz, #12 Murphy’s Station

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R100.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: ANNABERG is being brought along steadily. After a fair sprint trial she relaxed at the back of her field and ran on well. She now has blinkers on and could make the grade. TRIP TO FREEDOM has attracted support at times and could be better than her patchy form. The trip may prove ideal. GALWAY GIRL is honest and shown some form. Ideal trip but has drawn wide. More can improve.

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R130.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Some top class sorts in this race. Grade 1 winning mare CAMPHORATUS is best weighted but races after rest and is prepping for some great races. But she is unbeaten over track and trip. DARK MOON RISING is also formidable here and loves racing fresh so has every chance. Stable mate OUR COYS carries a light weight and is fit. TRISTFUL and SILVER ROSE are capable as well.

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R90.000, 15:07GMT+2

Race Summary: Wide open fillies and mares handicap over a trip – take your pick. TWICE TO SYDNEY came from far back to win her maiden and could make more improvement. ADORABLE ANALIA is knocking hard at the door though and must have a big say. CHATTY CATHY could time it right as well-she has been running on well. BELLE OF PARIS on the other hand could go start to finish. Many can score.


#4 Twice To Sydney, #8 Adorable Analia, #11 Chatty Cathy, #7 Belle Of Paris

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 2200m, Turf, R115.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: POLLARD did well to chase improving youngster Padre Pio to the wire last time. It was his first run after rest and he should come on but this is tough. ZANZIBARIAN is back at his best venue and could be hard to catch. JACK OF HEARTS impressed in beating him last time and could confirm. HOLY LAND and DON’T LOOK BACK ran fair races recently as well and must be considered.


#9 Pollard, #2 Zanzibarian, #6 Jack Of Hearts, #10 Holy Land

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R130.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: ULTRA MAGNUS confirmed that he is a top sprinter in the making winning his track debut last time. He knows the course now and should come on. DESOLATE ROAD has more in his favour this time and could prove an even bigger threat.SNIPER SHOT showed he is coming back to form and does love this trip. WYNKELDER and FILIPPO have some tremendous form as well. More in it-lovely race.


#7 Ultra Magnus, #6 Desolate Road, #2 Sniper Shot, #1 Wynkelder

Greyville, 06.10.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R105.000, 17:05GMT+2

Race Summary: More talented individuals in the last on the card. SPECIAL BLEND has been feature raced since winning his debut in style. He has been gelded and could go close again. WINTER CHILL has only run first or second in all showings. Has plenty speed and should keep improving. GRADUATE was dangerous last and is not one to take lightly. SHARE HOLDER and WOLFGANG look live runners too.


#2 Special Blend, #8 Winter Chill, #1 Graduate, #7 Share Holder
