Looking beyond the obvious in a race is a knack. Sometimes we see things that suggest a particular horse may be worth including in the next few runs. Our team of expert analysts have pencilled these in as blackbookers – or potential horses to follow.

ANTIGONUS – Wayne Badenhorst/Barbara Kennedy

Last Run: Hollywoodbets Scottsville – 13 September 2020 – Race 8

He had to overcome a wide barrier position and had no clear run in the straight. Donovan Dillon could not ride him out to the line. With a bit of luck in running next time, he could cause an upset.



Last Run: Turffontein Inside – 15 September 2020 – Race 1

He produced an eye-catching debut effort over 1200m in a workriders race. He understandably raced green, but finished his race off strongly. He is looking for further and with natural improvement, he should take a power of beating next time.


CURIOUS – Jacques Strydom

Last Run: Fairview Polytrack – 18 September 2020 – Race 2

He was having his first start for the stable over 1300m. He lost 3 lengths at the start but finished his race off well. He may be a better horse on the turf and should go close to winning next time.


COUNT MARSH – Robbie/Shannon Hill

Last Run: Hollywoodbets Scottsville – 20 September 2020 – Race 1

He was returning from a 14-week absence over the minimum trip. Was outpaced in the early stages and finished his race off well. He will prefer a little more ground and should strip a much fitter horse next time out.


RIVER DOON – Gavin van Zyl

Last Run: Hollywoodbets Scottsville – 20 September 2020 – Race 2

She was all at sea over 1200m on debut and moved up like a winner - but may have cost herself by lugging inwards. She would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement, should improve to win next time.


MARMALISA – Candice Bass-Robinson

Last Run: Durbanville – 08 September 2020 – Race 2

She was very green on debut over 1250m, but finished her race off well. Her mother Louvre won the Gr2 Tibouchina Stakes at Clairwood Racecourse back in 2009. She will have come on from the experience and should improve.


EMERALD ISLA – Lezanne Forbes

Last Run: Hollywoodbets Scottsville – 06 September 2020 – Race 2

She lost two lengths at the start on debut over 1200m. She was still very green but once finding her feet, she made late headway in the closing stages. She would have come on with that run and will enjoy further.


LET’S NOT LINGER – Tony Rivalland

Last Run: Hollywoodbets Scottsville – 06 September 2020 – Race 2

She was very green on debut over 1200m, but stayed on well at the finish. She is bred to go further and with the experience under her belt, she should have plenty of improvement to come.


HIS CHOICE – Andre Nel

Last Run: Durbanville – 08 September 2020 – Race 1

He caught the eye with a late run when finishing fourth over 1250m. His mother, Ma Choix won the Gr3 Victress Stakes back in 2015. He will be a different horse over further and should have a good career ahead of him.
