An exciting ten-race programme has been carded on the turf track at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon.

There are two feature races on the programme – the World Sports Betting Gr2 1900 and the KRA Listed East Coast Cup.

A reminder to take the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 11h05.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Peter Muscutt sends out Rototo in Race 3 and he is the best bet on the programme.

He produced a promising debut effort over this course and distance. He lost a length leaving the start, but the way he finished off his race was encouraging.

The son of Danon Platina would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, he can go one better.

Oriental Charm from the Brett Crawford stable takes his place in the Gr2 World Sports Betting 1900.

He was not disgraced when third in the SplashOut Gr1 Cape Derby last time. He set the pace that day and stayed on to finish third.

The 11-week break would have done him the world of good.He jumps from a good draw of four and if fit, he can notch up his third-career victory.

Race 3 – No 2 WORLD PHAROAH had a 164 day break due to a change of stables.

Race 3 – No 11 MO KING had a 129 day break due to a pulled muscle.

Race 5 – No 10 GARDENIA had a 171 day break due to minor hoof issues.

Race 8 – No 15 FLAG MAN had a 125 day break due to being gelded.

Race 10 – No 6 SAVANTRIX had a 167 day break due to being given time off to mature.

Race 10 – No 9 RAFA’S BOY had a 206 day break due to being rested.
