Greyville Preview – 6 November


Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R100.000, 12:50GMT+2

Race Summary: MACALLAN is improving. He shows gAdd Newood pace and the drop in trip may not trouble him. JAMES PETER is back on poly after being backed on turf and  running a decent race. Expect more. Highveld gelding TOUCH OF FATE has run here before but improved recently, has been gelded and Anton Marcus up today. TRANSONIC, FAST AS SILVER and BACKINTHEGAME could be right there.


#8 Macallan, #7 James Peter, #3 Touch Of Fate, #1 Backinthegame

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R100.000, 13:25GMT+2

Race Summary: TRAP QUEEN showed good gate speed and overall pace in the West Cape. She could keep going on the poly on local debut. ANNABURG has shown potential. She jumps from pole and could go close for a stable coming to form. She is closely matched with ARIANOS SPINNER who is holding form and should be right there again. AT YOUR REQUEST caught the eye last but has drawn wide.


#1 Trap Queen, #6 Annaberg, #4 Arianos Spinner, #3 At Your Request

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R100.000, 14:00GMT+2

Race Summary: Best weighted DESOLATE ROAD enjoys the poly and should be ideally  distance suited.He has drawn well and has a top rider up. Filly STAR VEGA flew up to beat her sex in good style in her first race on the poly. She can only improve but meets tougher. THE MASTER is ultra consistent, has good form and has the best of the draw. LAND OF MYSTERY is capable but runs before this.


#2 Desolate Road, #5 Star Vega, #1 The Master, #6 Land Of Mystery

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2000m, Poly, R90.000, 14:35GMT+2

Race Summary: TWICE TO SYDNEY goes for a hat trick. She only just gets there but as a result could be well handicapped still. However ADORABLE ANALIA is 1,5kg better off for a neck beating and should give her a hard time. JE NE SAIS QUOI is an interesting entry. She may have lost form but could prefer poly. ORIENT EXPRESS is capable of flying up at the right time.


#1 Twice To Sydney, #7 Adorable Analia, #3 Je Ne Sais Quoi, #5 Orient Express

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R90.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: MUTAWAARY is in good form and could be well placed again but he runs before this – check that run first. PICKAWINNER is capable but has not convinced in his last few. Can improve off his current rating. WINTER TWILIGHT loves this surface and is not one to take lightly but runs prior and that run must be taken into account. SEVENTH SON could be a dark horse from draw one.


#2 Mutawaary, #5 Pickawinner, #3 Winter Twilight, #9 Seventh Son

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1100m, Poly, R130.000, 15:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Top sprinter SUNSET EYES is unbeaten on the poly and has yet another chanceto maintain that record being best in at the weights today. Expect a massive run. ISHNANA is dangerous at his best. He can come flying up. FILIPPO seems held at  the weights but is consistent and must run well. HEY BOY, ELUSIVE HEART and EXCLUSIVE QUANTITY have earning potential.


#1 Sunset Eyes, #5 Ishnana, #2 Filippo, #8 Hey Boy

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1100m, Poly, R75.000, 16:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Not a strong field. CAPTAIN OF COLOUR should have every chance on form and has drawn a lot better today. TWO PATHS hasn’t done badly in the Highveld and that form could be quite strong here – respect. LA BAHIA ran on well against males last time but has drawn wide again. Still she needs to be included. SPANISH OASIS and WYLIE’S LASS can get into the fight.


#6 Captain Of Colour, #5 Two Paths, #3 La Bahia, #2 Spanish Oasis

Greyville Polytrack, 06.11.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R105.000, 17:05GMT+2

Race Summary: ACCIDENTAL TOURIST can finally bag another race here. She just needs a bit of luck especially with carrying top weight and taking on some hard knockers and  youngsters. EXTRAVARGANT ran her best recent race on the poly and has a plum draw so could get away. ELUSIVE FLIGHT showed speed in the West Cape and demands respect in this. MAI TAI and MISSY J are worth respecting.


#1 Accidental Tourist, #5 Extravargant, #7 Elusive Flight, #8 Mai Tai

Best Win: #1 SUNSET EYES
