Hollywoodbets Scottsville plays host to an eight-race programme this afternoon.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Corne Spies sends two horses to KZN both of which have decent winning chances.

The first is due off at 12h30.

William Robertson from the Spies yard takes his place in Race 2 and he is the best bet on the card.

He won a good race in his last start over 1160m at Turffontein.

The way he drew away from the opposition that day was encouraging. Three of his eight career victories have come over this distance.

If all went well with his travels, he can follow up.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Garth Puller saddles Masterbling in Race 5. He stayed on nicely in his last start over 1400m on the polytrack.

It must be noted that Time Together has come out and won again since.

The drop to 1200m should not pose a concern as he won on debut over 1000m.

The son of Master Of My Fate is having his peak run today. If keeping on a straight line, he can return to winning ways.

Jockey Robert Kathi will not be riding today.
