Fare-Thee-Well At Fairview Today!

First due off @ 12h30

Racing takes place at Fairview Racecourse this afternoon. Eight races are carded with the first due off at 12h30.

Don’t forget to take today’s free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge and give yourself more chances to win big!

Looking forward to a fair Friday at Fairview (Pic – Pauline Herman)

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gavin Smith saddles Khaya’s Hope in Race 6 and he is the best bet on the programme.

He is a winner of his last two starts. He returns from a well-deserved 13-week break. The 4yo gelding has won three times and has finished second once from as many starts over this course and distance.

He does have a wide draw to overcome, but gets the services of Craig Zackey who will give him all the necessary assistance from the saddle.

The son of The United States will be hard to beat.

Trip To Barberton from the Gavin Smith stable takes her place in Race 4.

She should have finished closer to the winner last time as she was steadied in the latter stages.

She has finished second once and third once from as many starts over this course and distance. She jumps from a good draw of four and can return to winning ways in this line-up.
