Projected R5 Million Pick 6 – Snaith Saddles The Banker

SA Champions Season is underway!

The first meeting of the SA Champions Season takes place at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday, with ten races carded.

There is a R1 million Pick 6 carryover with a likely pool of R5 million!

There are three Grade 2 races carded, including the Independent On Saturday Drill Hall Stakes, WSB Fillies Guineas and the WSB Guineas.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters Challenge with the first due off at 11h15.

Double Grand Slam from the Justin Snaith stable takes her place in the Gr2 WSB Fillies Guineas and she is the possible Pick 6 banker.

She has been ultra-impressive in her last two victories.

She took the lead at the 250m mark in the Grade 3 Umzimkhulu Stakes last time, quickened up well and drew clear of the opposition.

The daughter of Vercingetorix is the form horse in this contest, and she should notch up the hat-trick.

Trainer Tony Rivalland sends out Magma Magic in Race 5. He is better than his last start as he was reported to be coughing.

The way he finishes off his races suggests that he will relish the rise to 1800m.

It is encouraging that Sean Veale is booked to ride, and he may be able to coax that little bit extra out of him where it matters most. If he can get into a prominent position, he can shed his maiden tag.
