Pete Can Make It A Perfect Three

Revised racetimes! The first is off at 12h45

Hollywoodbets Greyville plays host to an eight-race programme this afternoon. Races 1 – 5 will be run on the polytrack and Races 6 – 8 will be run on the turf.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge with the first due off at 12h45.

Mexican Pete from the Frank Robinson yard takes his place in the Non-Black Type Model Man Mile. He followed up his debut win with an impressive victory over this trip.

Mexican Pete – progressive and can make it a hat trick today (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

The way he quickened away from the field that day was eye-catching. It must be noted that multiple horses from that form line have come out and won since.

He does meet a competitive field but has class about him and should remain unbeaten.

Trainer Mark Dixon sends out The Gliding Fish in Race 5 and he represents decent each way value.

He is better than his last start as he was reported to be not striding out. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked.

He takes a drop-in class and on best form shown, he may be the one to cause the upset.

Please note that there are a number of scratchings. Richard Fourie is not riding today.

Please note that the distance for Race 4 is now 2000m.
