Racing Is Definitely At Hollywoodbets Scottsville Today!

First due off @ 12h40

While the April foolers were out early with mischievous suggestions that today’s racing had been moved to Ashburton at the last moment, Gold Circle have given the reassurance that the Family Day racemeeting takes place at Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

An eight-race programme has been carded for this afternoon with the first due off at 12h40 and the lucky last set for 16h50.

Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge. (Read all about the latest big win here!)

Trainer Justin Snaith sends out Get Impressed in Race 6 and he is the best bet on the card. He has very good consistent form lines to his credit.

He should have finished closer to the winner last time as he hung outwards in the closing stages.

His penultimate run when fifth in the Schweppes Gr3 Politician Stakes was encouraging. If suited to the right-hand turn, he should be too good for this field.

Swiss Paradise from the Tony Rivalland stable may be the horse to close off the meeting. She finished 0.3 lengths behind Chelsea Flower last time.

She is 1kg better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

The blinkers seem to have done the trick on the daughter of What A Winter. She shows good speed in her races and may be hard to peg back.
