South Africa Horse Racing Previews: FAIRVIEW@2022.08.05

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R65.000, 11:40GMT+2

Race Summary: BACK TO FORMENTERA is holding her form but she does also battle to finish off her races so is more likely to place than win. KLASERIE has some fair recent form. She is also more likely to place than win. WONDER WOMAN shows pace when in the mood and could earn some minor money. DREAM SCAPE found one too good on debut but that winner did look good in that win. Jockey Piere Strydom makes a welcome return to the Eastern Cape and this is a good early ride. SPRING FEVER showed promise on local debut and could go one better this time.



#6 Spring Fever, #7 Dream Scape, #1 Back To Formentera, #2 Klaserie

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R60.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: SUGAR SNAP is coming off a disappointing performance. She may now prefer the Polytrack but she has also run some decent races on the turf. ESHRAAQ tends to lack a strong finish but could get a soft lead and also earn some money. MANSOORIYA did not show on her local debut. That was on the Polytrack, however, and she did a lot better on the turf last time out. She should run a big race. ST PATRICK’S DAY has some fair form and could earn some more money. GOLDEN GRACE has made the trip from the Western Cape and does deserve respect


#3 Mansooriya, #5 Golden Grace, #1 Sugar Snap, #2 Eshraaq

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R65.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: MON TRESOR ran well on local debut. This longer distance is not a problem and she should run well once again. JAPAN APPROVAL has poor form with blinkers. If they are removed then she is likely to show vast improvement. MI MI APPLE PIE and GIRL SCOUT will do better back on the turf and could pop up in the places. TEARDROP has made the trip from the Western Cape and does look hard to beat. The stable did disappoint with their last raid though. SUGARBERRY is better than her last run and has a winning chance for jockey S’manga Khumalo.


#5 Teardrop, #6 Sugarberry, #1 Mon Tresor, #4 Girl Scout

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R65.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: GLOBAL MARK has been holding form lately and has a winning chance. ABSOLU NOIR has not finished off his race when looking dangerous and likely to win. He could benefit from the master Piere Strydom in the irons. V V POWER is unreliable but is also not out of it on his best form. HAMLET ran well on local debut and may not have been at his best on the Polytrack last time. MY LORD AND MASTER has been a disappointment but could play a minor role. POTENTE makes his local debut and is a danger. SURYAVARMAN comes from a bang in form yard and should improve off a fair debut.


#2 Absolu Noir, #13 Suryavarman, #1 Global Mark, #6 Hamlet

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 2400m, Turf, R65.500, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: PRINCESS OF FIRE ran on Monday and that run needs to be looked at. AMERICAN LANDING is at his best on turf and looks distance suited. He has a winning chance. BASETSANA was not disgraced on a soft track last time. She was full of running when scoring in her penultimate start. ALMIGHWAAR and DRENGS FERRY were well beaten in the East Cape Derby over this course and distance but are not out of it. JACK AND GINGER, MY BOY REECEY and WILDEST DREAMS all have outside chances in a very open race.


#3 Basetsana, #2 American Landing, #1 Princess Of Fire, #8 Jack And Ginger

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R150.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: SANTA THERESE was not well drawn but still covered herself well when third last time out. She had rival RAIN IN NEWMARKET well behind previously so could be the one to beat. RAIN IN NEWMARKET has been very consistent without winning form for some time but did have many of these behind her when they have met. This course and distance should suit and she should be right there at the finish. INTEGRITY and GOLIGHTLY have had a good year so far but now meet stronger. DUPLICITY, CELTIC NIGHT, GOLDEN DAH and MAGICAL JAVA have all made the trip from the Western Cape and have to be considered possible winners. DAME OF FLAMES was full of running when winning last time out but does tackle a lot stronger this time.


#1 Santa Therese, #2 Rain In Newmarket, #8 Duplicity, #10 Celtic Night

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R175.000, 15:05GMT+2

Race Summary: There was not much between most of these when they met recently so we should get a nice competitive finish. MARMARA SEA continues to hold his form and is distance suited. SAFARI BLUE showed he is not outclassed in this company. NEXUS was a well-backed winner recently and can follow up. GRAZINGINTHEGRASS has been unlucky more than once recently and could score. MY BESTIE was heavily backed when scoring at this track when raiding and can win again.


#5 Nexus, #8 My Bestie, #6 Grazinginthegrass, #2 Safari Blue

Fairview, 05.08.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R63.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: The usual dish for the last race at Fairview. A tough race. Load up in the exotics. NARCOS got a deserved second win but has to carry a penalty. RAINING AGAIN quickened late when scoring on local debut and could be better than rated. TICKET TO RIDE should be right there at the finish. MY AMI BEACH shows promise and could be the one to beat. LEDELL’S ECHO won nicely on debut but the runner-up has not done credit to that form since then. KINGSTON ROCK is capable of an upset.


#9 My Ami Beach, #1 Narcos, #3 Raining Again, #4 Ticket To Ride

Best Win: #5 TEARDROP

Best Longshot: #3 BASTETSANA
