Fairview Starts At 12h25

Racing on the polytrack today

Eight races are carded on the Fairview polytrack this afternoon. Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge, with the first due off at 12h25.

Fire Alarm from the Alan Greeff stable should give punters a good start to the day. She produced a decent debut effort over 1200m on this course.

She was slow into stride but stayed on to finish third. The daughter of Fire Away would have gained from the experience and should love the rise to 1400m.

With the natural improvement that is expected, she may be the one to side with in this line-up.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gavin Smith is on 99 winners for the term, and sends out Duke Of Orange in Race 5. He finished 0.5 lengths behind Joyous Jubilee last time.

He is 5.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

Both his career victories have come on this course.

He jumps from a good draw of three and with his light mass of 48kgs, he can return to winning ways.

Rested horses:

Race: 3 No: 2 PRINCESS VRITTI had a 260 day break due being rested from racing.
