Richie And Princess Virginie – A Royal Win?

First race off @ 12h10

We head over to HQ with ten races carded at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth this afternoon.

Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h10.

Princess Virginie from the Glen Kotzen stable takes her place in Race 2 and she is a possible banker for the Bipot.

She was her own worst enemy over 1250m at Hollywoodbets Durbanville last time as she over raced in the early stages and hung in the final 200m.

Her debut effort when second over 1000m catches the eye.

The daughter of Vercingetorix should enjoy racing on the straight course and with Winning Form-sponsored Jockey Richard Fourie, she may find herself in the winner’s enclosure.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gareth van Zyl sends out Desert Rose in Race 4. She needed her last start over 1800m at Hollywoodbets Durbanville.

She would have come on from the run and should strip much fitter. The daughter of Futura won her only attempt over this course and distance.

She races well around this time of the year and from her good draw of three, she can return to winning ways.
