Full Card For Flying Fourie – How Many Today?

First due off @ 12h20

There are four feature races on today’s Hollywoodbets Scottsville eight-race programme.

SA National champion elect Richard Fourie has been booked to ride in all eight races today and the Fourie and his legion of fans will be watching those numbers climb towards the Delpech 334 magic marker.

Remember to take the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h20.

Trainer Glen Kotzen sends out Disting in Race 1. She has produced two good efforts to date.

It must be noted that multiple horses from her last form line have come out and won since.

The daughter of Global View should have no issues with the rise to 1200m and if suited to the track, she can shed her maiden tag.

Asiye Phambili from the Duncan Howells stable takes her place in Race 7.

She is better than her last two starts in the Western Cape.

She returns from a short nine-week break which would have done her the world of good. She has won once and finished second three times from as many starts over this distance.

She is ideally suited to this course and on best form shown, she should be the one to beat.

Please note that JP van der Merwe is not riding today.

  • Race 4 – #4 CHOCOLATE BOMB – 122 day break – change of stable yards.
