Fairview Preview – 16 October


Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 12:20GMT+2

Race Summary: FORBIDDEN AFFAIR is clearly better than his last run would suggest. This 1000m suits and FORBIDDEN AFFAIR could be the one they have to catch. AMAZING TUNE is battling to regain his best form but could earn some minor money in this weak field. CROISADE DE VERITE is course and distance suited. FOREST OF GREEN is improving and does look the right one on all form shown so far.



#5 Forest Of Green, #3 Croisade De Verite, #7 Arabian View, #6 Shakshuka

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R40.000, 12:55GMT+2

Race Summary: RYANAIR was an unlucky loser last week when very slow away and only run outof it very late. That indicated that her winning was not far away but she does remain winless after 17 starts. WHIFFLER’S JOY and ELECTRIC DAISY look the 2 biggest threats to the selection and they must be respected. ROOIBOS has been comfortably beaten in both her outings but could finish in the money once again.


#1 Ryanair, #2 Whiffler’s Joy, #7 Katherine The Wow, #12 Rooibos

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R40.000, 13:30GMT+2

Race Summary:  TURN IT UP HARVEY only found one too good on his local debut and should not be long in getting out of the maiden ranks. SHADES OF BLU is clearly unreliable but could pop up in the places once again. ALPIROD has been a disappointment since his promising debut but must be considered. UPPER TEN continues to hold form and should fight out the finish once again.


#1 Turn It Up Harvey, #8 Upper Ten, #3 Alpirod, #2 Shades Of Blu

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 4, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R40.000, 14:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Probably the toughest race on the card. MASTERFUL was not disgraced last time out and has a winning chance. RIGA D’ORA showed good improvement off his local debut and could go one better this time. REACH FOR THE LINE is in good form but has a wide draw for his jockey to overcome. FRANKIE TWO SHOES is in good form and must be respected. TAKATUL and SARK are others that must be considered.


#4 Frankie Two Shoes, #1 Masterful, #2 Riga D’Ora, #3 Reach For The Line

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 5, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R40.000, 14:40GMT+2

Race Summary: MICROBE was not at all disgraced in her latest start and she has been doing pretty well this year so must be considered. TRAVEL IN STYLE is holding her form and has a winning chance. SUGAR GUM is clearly talented and could win returning from a break over a course and distance that suits. SEATTLE MERMAID loves the Polytrack. SWEET SPRING and VALERIANA could earn some money.


#4 Sugar Gum, #3 Travel In Style, #2 Microbe, #6 Seattle Mermaid

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Poly, R40.000, 15:15GMT+2

Race Summary: A competitive race. HIDDEN INFLUENCE is holding form and can contest the finish once again. CASUAL WEAR is unreliable but could pop up in the places. TEOFILIA is consistent and should run another big race from pole position draw. LOOKS LIKE MAGIC broke his maiden when trying the Polytrack so must be considered. BASILICA SANTO was unlucky last week and could score if in the mood.


#5 Basilica Santo, #3 Teofilia, #1 Hidden Influence, #6 Sherwood Forest

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 7, Gallops, 1400m, Poly, R40.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Trainer Alan Greeff clearly has a strong hand but with which one of his runners is open to question. KIMBERLEY STAR has been in good form this year and could be the one to beat. Stable companions PHILOS, DUBULA and DUKE OF CARDS are capable of winning. EARTH HOUR probably needs it a bit further but must be considered. HOOVES OF TROY could earn some money.


#1 Kimberley Star, #2 Earth Hour, #3 Hooves Of Troy, #4 Philos

Fairview Polytrack, 16.10.2020, Race 8, Gallops, 1300m, Poly, R40.000, 16:15GMT+2

Race Summary: To the dismay of her punters BLOOM failed to win her second start after showing so much promise on debut. The Soft Falling Rain filly looked to be a bit green at a crucial stage but she did quicken up nicely again. She can make amends. LINDA LOVES LACE, NEVERLETUGO and SAO PAULO have all done well enough recently to earn some respect. LA BASTIDE is another that could get involved in the finish.


#5 Bloom, #8 Neverletugo, #10 La Bastide, #6 Linda Loves Lace
