Groovy Jockey Strike Today

First race off at 12h40

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

The Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge gives you another chance to win for free.

The first is due off at 12h40.

Feeling Groovy from the Glen Kotzen stable takes her place in Race 5 and she is the best bet on the programme. She set the pace over 1600m on this course last time, but was caught in the shadow of the post by Umvoti.

Feeling Groovy (orange/blue cap) is pipped by Umvoti at Hollywoodbets Scottsville last time out (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

She finished second in her penultimate run over this course and distance. The
daughter of Canford Cliffs meets the right field this afternoon and top jockey Richard Fourie may be able to coax that little bit extra out of her where it matters most.

Watch the replay of Feeling Groovy’s last run:

Trainer Carl Hewitson saddles Sea Master in Race 6. He lost two lengths leaving the starting stalls last time, but finished his race off strongly when second to Running Rifles.

It must be noted that the horse that finished third that day has come out and won since. If jumping on terms, he may be rewarded for consistency.

  • The Pick 6 starts in the third race at 13h50

    Frankie Zackey…300k + – later and still Poor Happy Wandered who’s running today hasn’t visited the winner’s box in almost (3 YEARS) … Running now of a MR 63 for running a few places from a MR 51 I find that our handicappers are quick to smack Happy Wandered with a good 12 points…. the last time Happy Wandered had this type of rating was roughly 16 months ago and sad to say he was not competitive… Wouldn’t it be fair to say to the handicappers should be more lenient on horses that run into the placings and haven’t won in ages…The owners have really taken a huge knock by keeping Happy Wandered in racing…. Pls Pls prove me wrong Happy Wandered,, I’ll love to see the poor owner being rewarded back
