Change Of Venue Could Be The Challenge Today

First race is off at 12h45

Racing is back at Hollywoodbets Durbanville this afternoon and eight races are carded. The feature is the 6th, the R175 000 Listed Hollywoodbets Durbanville Cup over 2400m.

The change of venue after four months could be dealbreaker today, so look closer at the form and there is likely to be some give in the ground after rain on Monday.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge.

The revamped free-to-enter Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge has attracted plenty of interest and is now run on all local racemeetings, as well as on Singapore and Hong Kong fixtures.

The new prize payouts formulae means that besides the R5 000 daily must-be-won prize, which is allocated to the top 20 finishers on the leaderboard for every challenge race meeting, the all-or-nothing 100% clean sheet jackpot prize will now be determined by the number of runners at the race meeting,  multiplied by R10 000 per unit, for all venues.

For example, there are currently 79 starters on today’s card.  At R10 000 per starter, the jackpot prize will be R790 000!

And as an added incentive, every player who wagers R50 or more on the Bet Slip generated by the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge entry, will automatically have their potential winning payout from the competition, doubled! So now Tuesday’s jackpot is potentially R1 580 000!

The first is due off at 12h45.

Love In Winter from the Vaughan Marshall yard takes his place in Race 7. He is unbeaten from four starts to date. He showed good guts when winning his last start over this distance at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

The son of What  A Winter won his first two career outings on this course. He is a horse loaded with ability and if not in need of the run, he can keep his unbeaten record intact.

Trainer Dean Kannemeyer saddles Lion’s Head in Race 5. He had to overcome the widest draw over 1800m last time and was doing his best work at the finish. He finished 3.6 lengths behind Solar Power in his penultimate effort.

The son of Dynasty is 4.5kgs better off at the weights today and he has cracked pole position. If not too far out of his ground turning for home, he is capable of notching up his third career victory.

Please note that Richard Fourie and Aldo Domeyer are not riding today.
