Tony Rivalland To Put On His Sunday Best

First due off @ 12h35

We look forward to three feature races on today’s eight-race programme at Hollywoodbets Scottsville; the Listed WSB Sledgehammer, Listed WSB Scarlet Lady and the Non-Black Type WSB Highland Night Cup.

A reminder to take the free-to-play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h35.

Teriyaki from the Tony Rivalland stable takes his place in Race 2 and he is the best bet on the card.

He won his last start over this course and distance but was demoted to third after causing interference.

It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked.

Winning Form-sponsored Jockey Richard Fourie is booked to ride and if he can keep him on a straight line, he should take a power of beating in this field.

Trainer Tony Rivalland saddles Magma Magic in Race 3.

He should have finished much closer to the winner last time as he hung and shifted away from the crop in the closing stages. He cast a shoe in running that day which didn’t help his chances.

The son of Erupt is having his peak run today and he should be cherry-ripe.

If finding the form of his penultimate run, he may find himself in the winner’s enclosure.
