Follow Lyle At Hollywoodbets Scottsville Today

First race off at 12h30

Hollywoodbets Scottsville plays host to an eight-race programme this afternoon.

Hong Kong-based multiple SA champion Jockey Lyle Hewitson, who got married over the weekend and is here to ride on World Pool Gold Cup day, is booked to ride in seven races with a couple of decent winning chances and he may be worth following.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge and the first is due off at 12h30.

Trainer Alec Laird saddles Royal Guide in Race 6 and he is the best bet on the programme. He set the pace over 1700m at the Vaal last time, found another kick and drew clear of the opposition. The son of Gimmethegreenlight has class about him and he should be too good for this field.

Emerald Princess from the Sean Tarry stable takes her place in the Listed Off To Stud Stakes. She is better than her last start in the Listed Syringa Handicap as the jockey reported something to be amiss.

She returns from a 10-week break which may have done her the world of good. The daughter of Gimmethegreenlight won her only attempt on this course. Lyle Hewitson rides on her return and she may be the one to side with.
