Fairy Knight Can Win Derby Today

Bipot starts in the second race at 12h55

Racing is back on the turf track at Fairview Racecourse.

There are two feature races on today’s nine-race programme: the TAB Listed East Cape Derby and the Listed Dahlia Plate.

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

Fairy Knight from the Alan Greeff stable takes his place in the TAB Listed East Cape Derby.

He is a winner of his last four starts, the latest of which was in the Listed East Cape Guineas.

The son of Global View should have no issues with the rise to 2400m. He is the class horse in the race and should take a power of beating.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gavin Smith sends out Maiden’s Cove in Race 4. She finished 1.75 lengths behind Lady Zultanite last time.

She is 2kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating the pair at the finish.

The daughter of Quasillo jumps from a good draw of three and she will be mowing down the frontrunners.
