Louis Is Set For Cruise Control

First due off @ 12h40

Today’s local racemeeting takes place on the polytrack at Fairview Racecourse with an eight-race programme carded for this afternoon.

The latest winner of the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punter’s Challenge walked away with an impressive R860 000 on 28 April for selecting 8-of-8 winners on the day. You could be next so get your selections in now!

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gavin Smith sends out Cruise Control in Race 5. He has won his last two starts over 1000m with ease.

The son of Querari is unbeaten from four starts on this course.

He has no issues with the 1200m and from his good draw of three, he should take a power of beating.

Sporting Post-sponsored Jockey Louis Mxothwa retains the ride.

Great Times from the Jacques Strydom stable takes his place in Race 4. He finished 1.6 lengths behind Forest Spy last time.

He is 3.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

He has won once and finished third once from four starts over this course and distance. With luck in running, he can notch up his third-career victory.

  • Race: 1 – #7 CALL TO GLORY (GB) – 237 day break – being rested and changing stable yards.
