A Daily News Humdinger On Cards

Save the date - Saturday 25 May

Recent Gr2 World Sports Betting Guineas winner and ruling ante-post favourite for the R5-million Gr1 Hollywoodbets Durban July, Green With Envy heads the list of nine high class acceptors for the Gr1 Daily News 2000.

Dean Kannemeyer’s colt has impressed with every race as he has matured, winning the Gr1 Splashout Cape Derby and showing a tremendous turn of foot to collar star performer Sandringham Summit in the Gr2 WSB Guineas, a distance many thought was now on the sharp side for the Derby winner.

Seven of the 9 runners are rated 109 and better, an indication of the class of opposition Green With Envy will face in the Daily News 2000 at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday. Pure Predator may lead the charge for the minor placings ahead of William Iron Arm, who comes with a big reputation.

The Gr1 Tabgold Woolavington 2000 is open to fillies and mares of all ages and the Andre Nel-trained Saartjie staked her claim with an emphatic victory in the Listed KRA East Coast Cup, coming from almost last to run down Brett Crawford’s filly Future Girl in the last few strides.

Nel’s filly faces 10 rivals in this year’s renewal of the Tabgold Woolavington and also holds an entry in the Gr1 Hollywoodbets Durban July.

Leading the three-year-old entry is recent Gr2 SA Oaks winner Frances Ethel. Second over 1400m on debut, she has racked up four straight wins including The Oaks Trial and The Oaks for the Brett Crawford racing team.

Barry Irwin, astute principal of Team Valor, has bought into the filly and his judgement is rarely off the mark.
