Rampant Rachel Chasing The Sun

First due off @ 12h30

Today’s local racemeeting takes place on the turf track at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

Eight races have been carded for this afternoon with the first due off at 12h30.

Don’t forget to take the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge and tip your way to the top of the day’s leaderboard.

Trainer Tony Rivalland saddles Send Me in Race 3 and he is the best bet on the programme.

He stayed on when second over this distance at Hollywoodbets Scottsville last time.

The son of Gimmethegreenlight tries the blinkers for the first time which should keep his mind on the task at hand.

He is a progressive type and from pole position, he should be the one to beat in this line-up.

Rachel Venniker takes the ride for the Michael Roberts stable in Race 7 (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

Sun Blushed from the Michael Roberts stable takes his place in Race 7. He caught the eye when third over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville last time.

He finished 1.6 lengths behind Captain Bombshell that day. He is 4.5kgs better off at the weights this afternoon which should be enough for the tables to be turned.

Rachel Venniker takes the ride and Sun Blushed is likely to be switched off near the rear of the field and if taking the turn, he can return to winning ways.
