HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R100,000, 12:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: I’VE GOT WINGS (5) has useful form over the course and distance. Apprentice is replaced by a top jockey. BANDERILLA (11) has drawn a touch wide but is lightly raced and improving all the time. Should make a bold bid. GUEST GETORIXX (9) goes well over course and distance. She gets some relief from the saddle which should help her cause. MORGAN LA FAY (10) looks way over rated considering her form but does meet a weak field and can place.

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 2, Gallops, 1800m, Poly, R92,500, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: Small field. Big upset goes the saying. ICE SUNSATION (6) is lightly raced and has her third run after a break. She is weighted to turn the tables on ROTUNDA (1) who has been in good form and was narrowly beaten in stronger company last start. KIND JUDY (3) comes from a strong Highveld stable who don’t raid unless they have the right horse and the right race. She should be a big runner in a small field. OH SO SQUISHY (5) is seldom too far back and the step up in trip and a 4kg claimer up should make her competitive.

Selections:

#6 ICE SUNSATION, #3 KIND JUDY,  #1 ROTUNDA, #5 OH SO SQUISHY

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 3, Gallops, 1800m, Poly, R100,000, 13:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: LIKETHECLAPPERS (1) has been improving with each outing and should be at his peak now but there is plenty of competition. DUKE OF AFRICA (3) is another lightly raced colt that has been improving and has finished close-up behind Liketheclappers in the past. There should be very little between the two. THE BUND (4) comes from a very much in form stable. He enjoyed the step up in trip last run and can do even better of this trip. RAVENS SWORD (5) has been close-up at his last two over shorter. Given his pedigree he should enjoy the extra furlong.

Selections:

#1 LIKETHECLAPPERS, #3 DUKE OF AFRICA, #4 THE BUND, #5 RAVENS SWORD

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 4, Gallops, 1000m, Poly, R100,000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: Tricky. RULERSHIP (6) is lightly raced and still on the up. Makes his poly debut and does look to be above average. NORTHERN WARRIOR (1) was a comfortable winner over course and distance last run. He has the best of the draw again and should go close. WE ALL CHOMMIES (4) is quick and is course and distance suited with only 48kg to shoulder. HOOVES OF TROY (10) has been in good form of late and goes well on the ploy. He did not get penalised for his close-up second last run and can go one better here.

Selections:

#6 RULERSHIP, #1 NORTHERN WARRIOR, #4 WE ALL CHOMMIES, #10 HOOVES OF TROY

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 5, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R100,000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: Summery: ABSOLUTE VALUE (9) came in for a mountain of support last run when fitted with pacifiers. The gamble went astray but he did run a much improved race and was a close-up second. He makes his poly debut here but his trainer appears to have found the right formula. FEVER (4) has dropped in the ratings and the stable is starting to find form. He has a light weight and has done well on the poly. COOL RUNNINGS (6) was possibly in need of his last run. He has fair previous form over course and distance. PEWTER SKY (8) is down in class and can do better than his last effort and finish in the money.

Selections:

#9 ABSOLUTE VALUE, #4 FEVER, #6 COOL RUNNINGS, #8 PEWTER SKY

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Poly, R100,000, 15:35GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: Tough race. TRACK COMMANDER (1) has dropped in the ratings and looks competitive in this line-up. He goes well on the poly. RADAMES (3) found good market support on his poly debut and was narrowly beaten. He gets a 4kg claimer up from a good draw and can do better here. GENTLEMAN’S WAY (2) is a veteran of the poly and is seldom far off them. The stable appears to be coming to hand. COROMANDEL (7) has been trying further but looks more effective over this shorter trip. MAXIUMUS (9) has been up against stronger and never far behind. Another to consider.

Selections:

#1 TRACK COMMANDER, #3 RADAMES, #2 GENTLEMAN’S WAY, #7 COROMANDEL

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 7, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R100,000, 16:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: Tough handicap. IMMEASURABLE (1) boasts some useful Highveld form and was close-up last run. He switches to the poly here and as a six-year-old the surface could bring out the best. CYBER TIME (10) switches to the poly. He enjoyed the long trip last start and comes from a stable that is hitting form. EXCEEDER (5) took a walk in the market last start, his first local start. He makes his poly debut and should come on from his last effort. BANZAI PIPELINE (7) is always consistent and goes well this trip.

Selections:

#1 IMMEASURABLE, #10 CYBER TIME,  #5 EXCEEDER, #7 BANZAI PIPELINE

HOLLYWOODBETS GREYVILLE POLYTRACK, 15.08.2022, Race 8, Gallops, 1900m, Poly, R100,000, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Summary: Tricky. IRON CHEF (3) has been in good form on the poly. He meets a competitive but weak field here and should be right there. MAGIC INSPIRATION (7) is lightly raced and only shed his maiden last outing. However, she has improvement to come and the step up in trip should suit. INGAKARA (4) has come well at his last two. Market support last run and should have a strong chance in this line-up. RED ROSA (5) takes on males but has not been far back at recent outings and the step up in trip should suit.

Selections:

#3 IRON CHEF, #7 MAGIC INSPIRATION, #4 INGAKARA , #5 RED ROSA

Best Win: #9 ABSOLUTE VALUE

Best Value Bet: #6 RULERSHIP

Best Longshot: #4 WE ALL CHOMMIES
