Follow Smith At Fairview Today

First race at 12h50

Racing is back on the turf track at Fairview Racecourse this afternoon and eight races are carded.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Gavin Smith has a busy day and may be the stable worth following.

The first is due off at 12h50.

Forest Spy from the Smith yard takes his place in Race 2. He was a tad disappointing in his last start over 1000m on this course but is better than the effort suggests. He has finished second twice from as many starts over this course and distance.

The 12-week break would have done him the world of good. He is the best weighted runner in this contest and should notch up his third career victory.

Trainer Alan Greeff saddles Divine Dynasty in Race 6. She showed some improvement in her last start over 1600m on the polytrack. She was reported to be coughing that day.

The daughter of Dynasty has won once and finished second once from three starts over this distance. She has her first run on the Fairview turf track which may suit her well. She takes a drop-in class and from her good draw of two, she may find herself in the winner’s enclosure.

Please note that Wayne Agrella is not riding today.
