Race Summary: CERELIA is one of three newcomers for the Alan Greeff yard and the betting needs to be watched. Stable companion ETERNAL HOPE has Greg Chyene in the irons and may be the stable choice. HERRIN is the newcomer for Greeff and she is a Querari filly. Trainer Gavin Smith has the other 4 runners and SUGAR GUM should have won her last start and does deserve to make amends.



#8 Sugar Gum, #5 Herrin, #4 Eternal Hope, #3 Dehab

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R60.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: LITTLE DRUMMER BOY returns from a break. He is battling to win but could finish in the money if fit. PINCH POT makes his local debut. He is clearly better than his last run would suggest. THEMADSHERIFF struggled without winningin the Western Cape but was not beaten far when trying Blinkers last time out and can go close to winning. BENICARLO is in good form and can place.

Race Summary: ASCENDING HEIGHTS has some fair form. Blinkers are reached for her and she could pop up. WORLD SQUARED is holding form and has a winning chance in thisline-up. KEEPER OF THE KEYS is probably better than her last Polytrack outing and could like this longer distance. AMPLE GLORY is doing well and is well drawn. She is clearly not out of it. TERRA CREEK GIRL is improving-chance.


#3 Ascending Heights, #4 World Squared, #14 Terra Creek Girl, #5 Keeper Of The Keys

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R65.000, 14:15GMT+2

Race Summary: AMBRA has improved under the care of Alan Greeff and can go close to winning. Stable companion STOPTHINKINGOFME is better than her last run would suggest and is capable of finishing in the money once again. SUNSHINE MINT is another Greeff runner who shone on her first run for Greeff and it will not be much of a surprise were she to follow up and win again. CLOUD ATLAS can place


#3 Sunshine Mint, #6 Undiscovered Gem, #5 Cloud Atlas, #4 Evermore

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R65.000, 14:50GMT+2

Race Summary: HOOVES OF TROY was a good juvenile and may have needed his season debut, his first after being gelded. He should be a lively runner in this race. TORIOLAKE is holding form but does take on stronger this time. WORLD RADAR won nicely in her first 2 starts and her last run in Cape Town is best ignored. She could bounce back from that. CAPTAIN ANNE BONNY needed her last run-chance


#3 World Radar, #1 Hooves Of Troy, #6 Captain Anne Bonny, #4 Anuchke’s Wings

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R60.000, 15:25GMT+2

Race Summary: TOM N JERRY is battling to regain winning form but could finish in the money. WOOD FOR THE TREES is holding form and does have a place chance. BHALTAIRis returning from a break but can win if fit. GIACOMO is holding form and can contest the finish once again. DUKE OF CARDS was well backed to win on his stable debut and can follow up if in the same mood. PALACE QUEEN can place.


#3 Bhaltair, #4 Giacomo, #9 Palace Queen, #5 Duke Of Cards

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R150.000, 16:00GMT+2

Race Summary: STAR FIGHTER is battling to regain winning form but is also usually not farbehind. MERYL has been in good form and can go close. MADAME SPEAKER is looking for a hat-trick but is probably at her very best over a bit shorter. She can win though. DUCHESS OF BOURBON has been disappointing in her last 2 starts and could cause an upset if at her best. DELIAS DELIGHT can earn money.


#1 Star Fighter, #3 Madame Speaker, #2 Meryl, #9 Luna Wish

Fairview, 03.01.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R60.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: MATTINA put behind a disappointing local debut by winning her next start and she can follow up. NO MORE WORDS was not disgraced when fourth on her local debut and could do a lot better this time around. PRINCESS KALISI is back over the course and distance of her maiden win. WHISKY TANGO is a course anddistance winner and must be considered. DOUBLED OVER makes her local debut.


#2 No More Words, #1 Mattina, #3 Princess Kalisi, #6 Doubled Over
