A Royal Watch Over Hollywoodbets Kenilworth

First due off @ 12h20

Hollywoodbets Kenilworth plays host to an eight-race programme this afternoon.

Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h20.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Brett Crawford sends out Tuscan Romance in Race 1.

She was unlucky not to have won on debut as she was held up for a run until the 200m mark.

The way she finished off her race was eye-catching. It must be noted that the horse that finished fourth that day has come out and won since.

The daughter of Master Of My Fate would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should be the horse to beat.

Royal Watch from the Justin Snaith stable takes his place in Race 6.

His last start can be ignored as he over raced in the early stages and was reported to be coughing post-race.

He finished 0.2 lengths behind Coronation Time in his penultimate effort. He is 1.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

He has won once, finished second once and third once from as many starts over this course and distance. If putting his best foot forward, he may find himself in the winner’s enclosure.
