Greyville Preview – 19 February



Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R100.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: JAMES PETER was eye catching after rest and the winner of his last race looks promising. RETAIL THERAPY made a form return in her last race on the Highveld and is rated to go close even if up against males today. PREDATOR is a well bred gelding and he can improve on an otherwise relaxed barrier trial. FIRE ON THE TRACK and INGAKARA trialled well also. MACALLAN has shown.



#7 James Peter, #5 Retail Therapy, #11 Predator, #3 Macallan

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R105.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary: MADE IN HOLLYWOOD is ready to score. She was a good seocnd to Petra with excuses the last time she raced on the poly and her last two against males were very decent. SPAM ALERT could enjoy the shorter trip and has the best of the draw. Respect. LA BELLA ran a smashing race behind a track specialist on the turf last and demands respect. Consider MUMTAZ and ACCIDENTAL TOURIST.


#8 Made In Hollywood, #1 Spam Alert, #5 La Bella, #3 Mumtaz

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R100.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: FADE TO BLACK should be cherry ripe after running very well in both local starts. The poly may be where he is most effective. BHAKKA looks a lively threat. His best run looks to have been on the poly but he nevertheless ran well on turf over further last. LET’S BLAZE is closely matched and with WYLIE’S CHOICE should be right there at the finish. SAIPAN is holding form well.


#3 Fade To Black, #10 Bhakka, #9 Let’s Blaze, #7 Wylie’s Choice

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R90.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: DUTCH ALLEY can follow up on his last win on the poly as his hike in ratings looks fair. PERFECTLY PUTT showed his best form back on poly last time and should build on that but has drawn widest today. DOUBLE ESPRESSO is another youngster that could be dangerous. He has a plum draw this time. GALWAY, SOVEREIGN SOLDIER, MUTAWAARY, KNIGHT WARRIOR and more in it.


#5 Dutch Alley, #12 Perfectly Putt, #2 Double Espresso, #9 Galway

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1800m, Poly, R90.000, 15:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Stable mates SILVA MAGIC and ARRABIATA are useful types and both look certain to be in the fight. The former is probably the stable elect on riding arrangements. SILVER PRANCER has now found winning ways and could follow up even if switching to poly. PREFERENTIAL impressed last and can make a successful handicap debut. SWEET EMPRESS can’t be far off on form.


#10 Silva Magic, #8 Silver Prancer, #7 Preferential, #5 Arrabiata

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R110.000, 15:53GMT+2

Race Summary: Most are speedy and hold decent form. ANGEL BOUQUET has a plum draw back on the poly and with her light weight should run well. But fellow three-year-old WHIZZ OF ODDS will be hard to catch if allowed to get away. Jockey Warren Kennedy is doing great things in the saddle. COYOTE GIRL has the best of the draw and should race fresh after rest. Respect. QUEEN OF ALAMO has a say.


#2 Angel Bouquet, #5 Whizz Of Odds, #1 Coyote Girl, #7 Queen Of Alamo

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R90.000, 16:30GMT+2

Race Summary: DIFFERENT LIGHT has matured and doing well. She has experience on the poly and from a top draw this time could show how good she is in this company. SEA VENTURE brings good higher division form into the race. She is racing after rest but merits the utmost respect. PURPLE NKANYEZI has been brought along steadily and could show more today. SOMEONE EXCITING has a good finish.


#2 Different Light, #5 Sea Venture, #3 Purple Nkanyezi, #12 Someone Exciting

Greyville Polytrack, 19.02.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R75.000, 17:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Watch the betting closely as it is wide open. BELSHAZZAR could be looking for the polytrack. He has made some improvement in the Highveld recently. MASTEROFALLISURVEY was a good improver with blinkers at Scottsville. Can go forward from that. TRANSONIC, RED HOT NIGHT, FRANKIE TWO SHOES all have shown potential but have drawn wide. FORTIFIED is much better than his last run.


#5 Belshazzar, #4 Masterofallisurvey, #10 Transonic, #2 Fortified
