Snaith’s Going For A Grand Slam Today

First due off @ 12h30

Hollywoodbets Greyville plays host to an exciting eight-race programme on the turf track this afternoon. There are three feature races on the card; the Gr3 Byerley Turk, Gr3 Umzimkhulu Stakes and the Non-Black Type Kwa-Zulu Natal Stakes.

Don’t forget about the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h30.

Double Grand Slam (Grant van Niekerk) registered her maiden stakes victory in classy style (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

Double Grand Slam from the Justin Snaith stable takes her place in the Gr3 Umzimkhulu Stakes.

She was super-impressive when winning the Gr3 SplashOut Prix Du Cap last time. She quickened up well and was geared down in the run down to the line.

The daughter of Vercingetorix is the class horse in this race and if suited to this course, she should take a power of beating.

Trainer Dennis Bosch sends out Diani in Race 4. He has produced two fair runs since returning from a 10-week break.

He won his only attempt over this course and distance, three runs ago.

The son of Ideal World will be at peak fitness and with Muzi Yeni in the saddle, he can return to winning ways.

  • Race: 3 – #9 Shanta’s Pride had a 259 day break due to fetlock surgery.
