Meryl The Banker Today

First off at 12h25 is Bipot opener

After a tough day at Turffontein yesterday, punters will be looking to recoup some losses at Fairview today where the form gods will hopefully be kinder.

There are eight races on the polytrack, commencing at 12h25, with the running of the Bipot.

Meryl – versatile and has a good finish (Pic – Pauline Herman)

The Sporting Post top bet of the day is the ever reliable major centre stakes winner Meryl who runs in the seventh race, a Conditions Stakes. Equally at home on both surfaces she has held her form well in four runs since arriving here in July. Greg Cheyne takes over the riding honours from Charles Ndlovu, who has done very well.

    Just seen another shocking decision made by the starter and the stipes regarding Deepston in Fairview Race 3. In no way should that horse have been under starters orders. The horse was rearing before gates opened and was not stable as gates were opened still rearing in stalls. Even though horse was not impeded by a handler, the horse should’ve been declared a scratching irrespective of where it finished. At least the horse should’ve been taken out the stalls examined and reloaded then if no blood or injury banging it’s head. Absolute shocker!

      That’s the rule – if the horse is architect of his own misfortune

    Hi Mr Ed, whilst we’re talking PE…

    Any news on National Park, when will we see him in CT ?
    (a name Frankie doesn’t want to hear ?)

    Maybe Hedley reads this – and Legal Eagle,
    Retired ?
