Snaith May Have A Magic Trick Up His Sleeve

First due off at 13h05

The new week starts off with an eight-race programme at Hollywoodbets Durbanville today. Weather conditions are near perfect!

Jockeys Luyolo Mxothwa (medically indisposed) and Bernard Fayd’Herbe (flight complications) will not be riding this afternoon.

Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 13h05.

Man to watch today! Justin Snaith (Pic – Chase Liebenberg)

Magic Verse from the Justin Snaith stable is the best bet on the card and may be the horse to close off the meeting.

He has produced two good runs to date. He raced from a handy position over 1400m last time and stayed on to finish third.

The son of Vercingetorix is a progressive type and should love the rise to the mile. In this type of field, he should be the one to beat.

Time For Love from the Harold Crawford and Michelle Rix stable takes her place in Race 6.

She has produced two encouraging efforts to date. The way she stayed on at the finish over 1400m last time was promising. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked.

The daughter of Time Thief will love the rise to the mile and with luck in running, she can shed her maiden tag.
