Fairview Preview – 2 October


Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: A weak field. CURIOUS was caught out of his ground on his local debut. He is not well drawn but if ridden closer to the pace might win. BALTIC BEAT tends to lack a strong finish. Trainer Gavin Smith has put blinkers up this time and he might well keep going. IN THE FLESH and was a bit disappointing earlier this week. CARLINO makes his debut and must have a winning chance.



#1 Curious, #3 Baltic Beat, #8 Carlino, #4 Moon Game

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: QUINTUS ANGEL has battled to finish off her races and is not well drawn for this race but she could finish in the money. WHIFFLER’S JOY has some fair local form and could finish in the money. ELECTRIC DAISY was backed into favourite on Monday and she let her team down but is not out of it. FROSTY RAIN is improving and will be hard to beat this time around.


#6 Frosty Rain, #1 Quintus Angel, #2 Whiffler’s Joy, #5 Electric Daisy

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R40.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Trainer Alan Greeff has a very strong hand in this race. PHILOS is in good form and should contest the finish. Stable companion MARMARA SEA loves this surface and could be finishing too strong for his rivals once again. DUBULA and DUKE OF CARDS are not out of it either. THE HIGHWAY MAN has a place chance if he shows his best form.


#3 Marmara Sea, #4 Dubula, #5 Duke Of Cards, #2 Philos

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R40.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: Another small field and none of the six runners carded can be safely ruled out. BARBERTON SILVER is in good form and was touched off very late last time out. FINLEY HILL always gives of his best and should be right there at the finish once again. MANINGI INDABA, FIERY FORT and IMPRESSIVE MASTER have all done well on the Polytrack and are quite capable of winning if they show their best sides.


#3 Maningi Indaba, #1 Barberton Silver, #2 Finley Hill, #4 Fiery Fort

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 2200m, Poly, R40.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: A weak Maiden field and trainer Zietsman Oosthuizen could have a winner. His 3 runners, EDO FURIN, GEOFFREY PALACE and MOONLIGHTSTRANGER, all ran well enough in their latest start to hold a winning shout. GILDED AGE needs to do more to win but could earn some money. FORD WINTIE showed major improvement last time out and can go one better. BILLI ANN was not disgraced on Monday.


#4 Geoffrey Palace, #5 Moonlightstranger, #3 Edo Furin, #8 Ford Wintie

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R40.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Probably the toughest race to find the winner. MIO GRANDE won a nice race last time out and could follow up. STORY OF MY LIFE probably needed the run last time out and should improve. THE MASTER was not disgraced on his local debut and could do even better this time. RIGA D’ORO, NORFOLK PINE and LATEST CRAZE have all done well enough of late to be considered as possible winners.


#7 Latest Craze, #2 Mio Grande, #4 The Master, #5 Riga D’Ora

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 15:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Alan Greeff has 2 big guns in his arsenal for this race. VERBARIUM has done very well on this surface and is clearly in with a winning chance but does have stable companion SULLENBERGER to beat. The Captain Of All gelding is unbeaten in 2 starts on the Polytrack and won full of running last time out. Alan Greeff is in very good form. BIG BAY should be in the battle for a stake cheque.


#2 Sullenberger, #1 Verbarium, #3 Big Bay, #4 Omega Onslaught

Fairview Polytrack, 02.10.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R40.000, 16:15GMT+2

Race Summary: Soft Falling Rain filly BLOOM took her time to start up her engine on debut but quickened like a good horse and there is no real reason to suggest she will not be even smarter this time around. Stable companion ELUSIVE DIVA is suited to the course and distance and could be the one to catch. SWEET SPRING and VALERIANA are in good heart and hold place chances.


#3 Bloom, #4 Elusive Diva, #5 Linda Loves Lace, #11 Valeriana

Best Longshot: #4 GEOFFREY PALACE
