Championship: Smith And Greeff Go Head To Head Today

First is off at 12h40

Racing is at Fairview Racecourse on the polytrack today and eight races are carded.

The Trainers Championship battle between Hollywoodbets-sponsored Gavin Smith and Alan Greeff is heating up with the former, two winners in front.

There are two meetings to go in the season and both trainers are sending out a lot of troops today.

The first is due off at 12h40.

Executor from the Alan Greeff stable may be the horse to close off the meeting. She finished 0.05 lengths behind stable companion, Esther last time.

She is 2.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. The daughter of Canford Cliffs finished third in her only attempt over this course and distance. Stable jockey Richard Fourie steps back into the saddle and if getting away to a clean start, she should take a power of beating.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Gavin Smith sends out Then In Focus in Race 5. He finished 0.5 lengths behind Bournemouth last time. He is 1kg better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

The manner in which he finishes off his races suggests that he will love the rise to 2200m. The son of Visionaire has dropped to a competitive rating and he can notch up his second career victory.

  • The Bipot starts in the first race at 12h40
  • The Place Accumulator starts in the second race at 13h15
  • The Pick 6 starts in the third race at 13h50
  • The first Jackpot starts in the fourth race at 14h25
