A Grey Day – And We Are Racing

The Bipot starts in the opener at 13h20

A cloudy and nippy Hollywoodbets Kenilworth runs alongside Hollywoodbets Scottsville this afternoon.

Eight races are carded and the main event of the day is the Non-Black Type Cape Racing Farm Sale Stakes.

The first is due off at 13h20.

Gimmethewaltz from the Candice Bass-Robinson yard takes her place in Race 1 and she should give punters a positive start to the day.

She was a beaten odds-on favourite when third in her last start over this course and distance.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. The daughter of Gimmethegreenlight meets the right field this afternoon and she can make amends.

Trainer Andre Nel sends out Fusillade in Race 7. She challenged strongly in her last start over 1100m on this course but found one too good in the form of Miss Marguerite.

She would have come on from the run and should strip a much fitter horse. The 5yo mare meets a similar line-up this afternoon and she can go one better.
