South Africa Horse Racing Previews: FAIRVIEW@2022.05.13

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R65.000, 11:40GMT+2

Race Summary: V V POWER continues to hold his form and one of these days he will keep going to the line. It is not a strong field and he should go close to winning. JACK’S JAMBOREE probably prefers the Polytrack but could earn some minor money. ACT OF THUNDER has been a disappointment but would also not be a surprise winner of the race. A KINGS RETURN makes his local debut and it could be a winning one. KLASERIE and BOLD LEAH need to improve to win a race but could earn some money.

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R65.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: BAVARIAN JET showed promise on his turf debut. He did not repeat that run on the Polytrack last time but can do better back on the turf. ECHOES OF WINTER has some fair form and should be right there at the finish once again. LADYHAWKE is improving and will have blinkers on for the first time. She can earn some more money. OPEN SECRET does look the right one in this line-up and visiting trainer Justin Snaith should be on the board with his first strike. RED SPHERE makes her debut but keep a close eye on the betting.


#10 Open Secret, #3 Echoes Of Winter, #6 Ladyhawke, #4 Eclair

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R65.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: IRISH SEA is holding form and although not well drawn is clearly not out of it. GLOBAL MARK showed improvement when trying blinkers for the first time and could go one better but this looks a tougher race. QUESTION THE STARS is well drawn and should do better than his recent runs. LILY OF ORANGE was not disgraced on her local debut and should contest the finish. Stable companion MAIDEN’S COVE showed promise on debut. She did not repeat it after that but deserves respect on local debut. HEATHCLIFF was not disgraced on debut and is likely to be a lot smarter this time and represents a very good jockey-trainer combination.


#10 Heathcliff, #8 Lily Of Orange, #2 Global Mark, #1 Irish Sea

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R90.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: The first leg of the Pick 6, and with R500k added to the pool they are expecting R2million so get your bets on. SANTA THERESE was a huge disappointment last time out. That was the first time she was tried with blinkers and that probably had a lot to do with the run as they have been removed. She is very effective at this course and could bounce back to score. MAJOR ATTRACTION was not far behind rival SANTA THERESE when they last met at Kenilworth and there should not be much between them once again. They look the two most likely to fight out the finish. FLY MY FLAG is decent on her day but could be stretched in this line-up and over this distance. PHOENIX and PRINCESS KALISI are at the top of their game and could earn some money.


#2 Major Attraction, #1 Santa Therese, #10 Kiss Of Life, #12 Afternoon Tea

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R90.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: The incredible winning run of GLOBAL DRUMMER continues and it is hard to look past him scoring again over a course and distance that clearly suits. WHATEVER NEXT won nicely when heavily backed last time out. That was his first try with blinkers and although he was 4 lengths behind rival GLOBAL DRUMMER when they last met it should be closer this time. INHERIT THE RAIN and WHAT A WINNER are both in good form and could earn some money. BARZALONA quickens nicely when in the mood and should be a big threat to GLOBAL DRUMMER.


#1 Global Drummer, #6 Barzalona, #3 Whatever Next, #4 Inherit The Rain

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R175.000, 14:35GMT+2

Race Summary: A very interesting race. Trainer Gavin Smith has a decent hand. There was not much between FOREST SPY and KHAYA’S HOPE when they met over this course and distance recently and both should be right there at the finish. CHERE FOR ME has improved with each run and is coming off two impressive wins. She is obviously the one to beat. PIROSHKA is improving and was full of running when scoring last time out and represents a visiting trainer. EKORIA showed signs of inexperience when beaten by CHERE FOR ME on debut and scored impressively in her second start. It would not need much improvement for her to turn the tables on her rival.


#4 Chere For Me, #5 Ekoria, #3 Piroshka, #2 Khaya’s Hope

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R350.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: One of the top races of the Eastern Cape season, the East Cape Derby (Listed), and although visiting trainers have a decent record in the race, this year does look a tough one for the punters to find the winner. PEACE IN OUR WORLD has always looked likely to be at his best over this type of trip and was not disgraced last time out. YOU KNOW WHO was ahead of PEACE IN OUR WORLD last time and could be the ones to beat. CHOLLIMA had rival in this, OVER TWO YOU, behind him when they last met but is badly drawn. I WANT IT ALL, OVER TWO YOU, TOP QUALITY and FUTURISMO have all made the trip from Cape Town and are clearly not out of it. ALMIGHWAAR and IL LUNGO both represent local trainers and are relatively unexposed and could be the surprise packages.


#3 Chollima, #4 I Want It All, #6 Top Quality, #5 Over Two You

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R63.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Another tough race to find the winner and a sizeable number of runners is advised for the exotics. SACRED IBIS has been a disappointment of late but has won over this course and distance. DO SI DO disappointed last time out but was trying blinkers that day and she is clearly better than that and could bounce back to score. SWEET REPEAT has made the trip from Cape Town and deserves the utmost respect. BASETSANA did not show much on her local debut but is capable of better and would not be a surprise winner. MEENEERA, WINTERTIME and LEGEND HAS IT all have winning chances as well.


#2 Do Si Do, #3 Sweet Repeat, #4 Basetsana, #9 Wintertime

Fairview, 13.05.2022, Race 9, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R63.000, 16:20GMT+2

Race Summary: WILDEYE makes his local debut so keep and eye on the betting. AUGUSTA GREEN did not show his best last time out but could be the surprise package for an in-form trainer. IDEAL VIEW is clearly better than his last run and could bounce back to score. BOLD RESOLVE quickened nicely when trying blinkers for the first time and should be better suited to this distance. IZHIESTIA makes his local debut after a break but if fit and well is not out of it. The two current reserve runners, MASTERFUL and ABSOLUTELY FAB, are both capable of running well and have winning chances if they get a run.
