Staying Contest Heads Fairview Card Today

First due off @ 12h50

Fairview Racecourse plays host to an eight-race programme on the turf track this afternoon, with the first due off at 12h50.

The main event of the day is the non black-type Glenlair Trophy which is run over 2800m.

Don’t forget to take today’s free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge – you could be the next lucky winner!

Sweet And True from the Sharon Kotzen stable takes his place in Race 2 and he is the best bet on the card.

He produced a promising debut effort over 1000m on this course. He challenged strongly all the way to the line but found one too good in the form of Hideki.

The son of Oratorio would have gained from the experience and should love the extra furlong on offer. With the natural improvement that is expected, he should be the one to beat.


Trainer Emmanuel Kaknis sends out Light Without in Race 6. He ran a good race when third over 1800m on this course last time.

He raced from a handy position and stayed on at the finish. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked.

He has won once, finished second once and third once from five starts over this course and distance.

From his good draw of three, he should notch up his fourth-career victory.

Please note that jockey Craig Zackey will not be riding this afternoon.
