The first meeting of the new year takes place at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf course today.
There are two feature races including the Gr3 Flamboyant Stakes and the Listed Christmas Handicap.
The first race is due off at 12h20.
Nellie Melba from the Peter Muscutt stable should give punters a good start to the day. She was doing her best work late when second over 1200m on this course last time.
The daughter of Oratorio is a progressive type and will love the step up to 1400m. From pole position, she should take a power of beating.
Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gareth van Zyl sends out Imilenzeyokududuma in the Listed Christmas Handicap.
He ran a decent race in his first run for the Gareth van Zyl stable. He stayed on to finish fourth over a distance short of his best.
He has won twice from three starts over this trip. He will strip a much fitter horse and with luck in running, he can notch up his fifth career victory.
