Greyville Preview – 16 October



Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R100.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Some of the leading contenders on form have drawn wide and the race is wide open. ZERO RATE didn’t go backwards after a fair trial running just 2,00 lengths behind the winner. He should keep improving. ROCKET RHUMBA finished ahead of him when dangerous in that race but has drawn wide. JALAPENO gets the best of draws after the worst and could be the value type today.



#12 Zero Rate, #2 Rocket Rhumba, #3 Jalapeno, #8 Let’s Blaze

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R105.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: LAND OF MYSTERY posed no threat on the turf at Scottsville last time but the poly is more his game and he could bounce back to best. WILLIAMS LAND was an impressive maiden winner but has drawn wide on his handicap debut. Still is one to watch. HIGH GREEN has dropped in ratings and could prove dangerous this trip. DRUNKEN SAILOR and GRADUATE are fair runners on current form.


#3 Land Of Mystery, #7 Williams Land, #5 High Green, #2 Drunken Sailor

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R100.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: DUKE OF YORK has been costly to follow but the polytrack could suit and he rates a serious runner in this race. KINGSTON ROCK was a good second on his poly debut and he should come on in his third run after rest. But a big threat could come from PURPLE POWAHOUSE who caught the eye in his barrier trial many months ago. He may have matured and improved since then.


#8 Duke Of York, #12 Purple Powahouse, #1 Kingston Rock, #2 Tuscan Kiss

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R90.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: STARLIGHT’s second career win is overdue and after running a fair race over shorter should have every chance over her best distance. SHEIK’S STORM has more than once shown she can sprint well and must be respected. She is carded to run on the 13th-watch her there. GINGER BISCUIT, SAUCY BROAD and FLEEK have the recent form needed to feature strongly.


#6 Starlight, #2 Sheik’s Storm, #1 Ginger Biscuit, #5 Saucy Broad

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R105.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: QUEEN OF ALAMO wasn’t disgraced against males last time and was beaten a short head in a race against her own sex prior. Her claiming apprentice could land a win on her. CANDY GALORE has been a bit costly to follow but keeps running strong races. She has the best of the draw and if behaves at the start can score. NOEMI, JUST VOGUE and youngster NAOSHIMA rate big dangers.


#3 Queen Of Alamo, #1 Candy Galore, #9 Noemi, #2 Just Vogue

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R110.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: ON THE DOUBLE could be one to watch on her poly debut. She has fair form overall but may relish racing on the synthetic. CONNECT ME has won well from the front and she too could be prominent on the surface. KOMESHANS FLIGHT produced a nice finish last and has won on the poly. SHE’S A DREAM is very capable. Most can get into the fight for the win here.


#8 On The Double, #4 Connect Me, #2 Komeshans Flight, #9 She’s A Dream

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R100.000, 15:40GMT+2

Race Summary: ROYAL KITTY finished second Dancing Feather who is headed for the top. She has proven consistent on the poly and has the form needed to win this well. DUNE DANCE has shown good pace and perhaps she is looking for the longer trip – only the race will show. All of ARMENGNAC, GYPSY ROSE and QUEEN OF BEAUTY can start to improve in this.


#3 Royal Kitty, #4 Dune Dance, #10 Queen Of Beauty, #7 Gypsy Rose

Greyville Polytrack, 16.10.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R90.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: UNCLE FRANK has done well racing in stronger. He rates the form choice but has a wide draw to overcome. ARROW’S MARK seems to have turned his form around and runs well on poly and turf. Can finally score again. ROY’S PHYSCO is holding form well but has drawn wide. DUTCH ALLEY is an improving youngster who could be well in on handicap debut. More can earn.
