Fairview Preview – 11 February


Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R60.000, 12:35GMT+2

Race Summary: FALLING FOR YOU has been threatening and could get his just reward. LEPRECHAUN needed his last run and should come on heaps this his 3rd run after a gelding. He is bred to stay the mile and should confirm with APOLLO ROCK who is never far off. PHANTOM ROLLS (claims 4kg) could make up the quartet.


#1 Falling For You, #3 Leprechaun, #2 Apollo Rock, #4 Phantom Rolls

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R72.500, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Small but competitive field. DESERT CHIEF appears a difficult ride but if covered can accelerate smartly and could grab them. Top weight DAWNBREAKER (claims 4kg) gives him 8kg which could be telling. Stable companion STORY OF MY LIFE could prefer a touch further nowadays but cannot be ignored. LORD MARSHALL races before this – watch the form.


#4 Desert Chief, #1 Dawnbreaker, #3 Story Of My Life, #6 Lord Marshal

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 2200m, Poly, R60.000, 13:45GMT+2

Race Summary: SALVADORA showed vast improvement in her new surroundings and enjoyed the poly. She will go on. BORN TO BE GREAT found it a touch on the far side last time – expect a decent effort. FAIRYLAND shouldn’t be far off again while stable mate GAELIC STORM could enjoy the extra. LADY CLEMENTINE comes off a short rest and could get into the mix. COIN MISTRESS could get into the frame.


#6 Salvadora, #2 Born To Be Great, #7 Fairyland, #5 Lady Clementine

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R85.000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: MERYL and ONTENDERHOOKS met in their penultimate runs where the former held on by a neck. On 1,5kg better terms the latter could have her revenge. SEEKING WISDOM can never be ignored for money while stable companion KENTUCKY BLUE (not striding out last time) seems to be staying better. SUMMER MOON needed her last run here and could feature.


#2 Ontenderhooks, #1 Meryl, #4 Seeking Wisdom, #3 Flying Squadron

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R50.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: DUKE OF CARDS has improved in blinkers and enjoys the poly. He should be ideally suited to the mile now. OKAVANGO DELTA claims 4kg and should be involved in the finish. LATEST CRAZE wasn’t disgraced in his post-maiden and should see out the extra. OCEAN MASTER won easily on debut at this track and could go on again. AMEX and PICK AGAIN could make the frame.


#7 Duke Of Cards, #6 Okavango Delta, #5 Latest Craze, #9 Ocean Master

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R50.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: 7-year-old mare SAMARRA has been holding her own in Gauteng. She tries the poly and could get across from a wide draw. FLAME OF FIRE is holding form and shouldn’t be far off here. TAWNY JET should enjoy the jump to a mile and must be respected. OASIS DREAM is having her peak run but has a wide draw to overcome. ELUSIVE FOUNTAIN could get into the action.


#2 Samarra, #5 Flame Of Fire, #8 Tawny Jet, #10 Oasis Queen

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R90.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: SIR FRENCHIE and JUAN TWO THREE renew rivalry in what looks a two-way contest. Their last meeting saw the latter victorious by a nose but recent form shows that the former should have his revenge. The remaining 4 runners are all capable of making the quartet.


#1 Sir Frenchie, #2 Juan Two Three, #4 Le Grand Rouge, #5 Aldo

Fairview Polytrack, 11.02.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R50.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: MICROBE was not striding out last time but has a wide draw to negotiate, however, with a 4kg claim could grab them late. Stable companions, SCENT OF A DREAM (won on poly debut), MISS ORANGE (runs for Teaque) and LADYSMITH (holding form) could feature. SCOLDING was backed in an easy maiden win here. YODALICIOUS, COASTAL STORM and INTHEPURPLERAIN could get into the money.


#8 Microbe, #2 Miss Orange, #13 Ladysmith, #9 Scolding
