Bling Will Be Dancing With A Queen

First due off at 12h40

Racing has been moved from the turf to the polytrack at Fairview Racecourse this afternoon.

Eight races are carded with the first due off at 12h40.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Gavin Smith saddles Trump My Queen in Race 2. She has finished third in both her efforts since relocating to the Eastern Cape.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second in her last outing has come out and won since.

She takes a slight drop-in class and S’manga Khumalo may be able to coax that little bit extra out of her where it matters most.

Woodland Ridge from the Kelly Mitchley stable takes his place in Race 6. He is better than his last start in a Novice Plate. His form prior to that outing was consistent. He finished 1.85 lengths behind Sirnihaallongsword, three runs ago.

He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating them in the run down to the line. Muzi Yeni is booked to ride and he should be competitive.

Race 1 is now open to Jockeys/Apprentices. It was previously a Work Riders Race.
