Fairview Preview – 18 September


Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 12:15GMT+2

Race Summary: CINNABAR is well drawn and has run some fair races over this course and distance so is clearly not out of it. IZZE CLOTH is unreliable but is not out of it. WHIFFLER’S JOY makes her local debut and does have a winning chance. LIVE MY DREAM is not well drawn but could run well on local debut. CINDARELLABEAUTIFUL should improve and must be considered. SPICY HOT could make a winning debut so watch for any betting moves.


#11 Spicy Hot, #7 Cinderelabeautiful, #1 Cinnabar, #2 Izze Kloth

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: CURIOUS makes his local debut and it could well be a winning one. WINTER CHORD returns from a lengthy break but could improve. ANCIENT TIMES has been a disappointment since a good debut but must have a winning chance. GIMME A RAINBOW is getting closer to the winner with each run and could have won his latest. MR PIGALLE showed promise on debut and can go close.


#8 Mr Pigalle, #5 Gimme A Rainbow, #4 Ancient Times, #2 Winter Chord

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: TIVOLI GARDENS was not beaten far last time out and surely has not made the trip to the Eastern Cape for the scenery. LOOKS LIKE MAGIC was not disgraced on her local debut and could do even better this time. RED BERRY made good improvement last time out and must be respected. CAPE JUBILEE has shown enough so far to be given some respect. FROSTY RAIN also has a winning chance.


#1 Tivoli Gardens, #2 Looks Like Magic, #7 Red Berry, #8 Cape Jubilee

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: A smallish field but not too many can be ruled out of it. CARIOCA would probably prefer a shorter distance but could earn. PURPLE DIAMOND is doing well for trainer Alan Greeff and could follow up after his last good win. THE HIGHWAY MAN tired late last week but could be the biggest threat to PURPLE DIAMOND. LETS PLAY BALL and PHILOS could also get involved in the finish.


#3 Purple Diamond, #4 The Highway Man, #5 Lets Play Ball, #7 Philos

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: RACINE has won her last 6 starts and clearly loves the Polytrack. She returns from a break but should go close to winning. LA BELLA MIA is a class act and was not at all disgraced when fourth at Greyville last time out. MARY O’ REILLY is a difficult ride due to her hanging when under pressure but she must be considered. MENDOCINO is consistent but has a tougher task this time.


#2 La Bella Mia, #1 Racine, #3 Mary O’ Reilly, #4 Ambra

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: A tough race to find the winner. NORDIC QUEEN and O SOLE MIO make their local debut and should well run well. GOODBYE LOVE is improving and is coming off a solid maiden win. SLOANE is speedy but is returning from a break. SHINE A LIGHT is probably better than her last run would suggest. ESCAPE TO VEGAS, WIND FINDER, VALERIANA and NANNA ANNA are all capable of winning.


#10 Nanna Anna, #2 O Sole Mio, #9 Valeriana, #4 Sloane

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1800m, Poly, R80.000, 15:40GMT+2

Race Summary: PRINCESS KALISI has struck a purple patch of form and has to be respected in her toughest test to date. CALANDRA is coming off a very good run and must be considered. AMERICAN PRINCESS disappointed on this surface last time but her form before that was pretty good. QUICKSTEP LADY was not her best in her last few starts but a break could have freshened her up. MANINGI INDABA disappointed last time out but can win.


#4 American Princess, #9 Quickstep Lady, #10 Maningi Indaba, #1 Princess Kalisi

Fairview Polytrack, 18.09.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 16:15GMT+2

Race Summary: Clearly the toughest race on the card and a wide spread of runners may be needed for the exotics. STORY OF LIFE has ability but returns from a lengthy break. TARSUS is doing well but is badly drawn. Stable companions POMACEOUS and THE MASTER would not be surprise winners. LAZARUS could pop up in the places. Consider ALL THE SEVENS and RIGA D’ORA on their last runs. SELAILAI and BYRIDGE also have a winning chance.


#5 The Master, #12 Byridge, #11 Selailai, #4 Pomaceous

Best Longshot: #5 THE MASTER
