Tulip Tree Could Leave Them Standing

First race off @ 12h05

Nine races are carded on the Turffontein Inside course this afternoon.

Chase Maujean has six rides booked with a couple of decent winning chances and he may be the jockey worth following.

Kindly note that jockeys Jarryd Penny, Muzi Yeni & Goodman Dadamasi and Nathan Klink will not be riding this afternoon.

The first is due off at 12h05.

A reminder again that the revamped free-to-enter Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge is now run on all local racemeetings, as well as on Singapore and Hong Kong fixtures.

Get your entry in today by 12h00 latest, please!

The new prize payouts formulae means that besides the R5 000 daily must-be-won prize, which is allocated to the top 20 finishers on the leaderboard for every challenge race meeting, the all-or-nothing 100% clean sheet jackpot prize will now be determined by the number of runners at the race meeting, multiplied by R10 000 per unit, for all venues.

And as an added incentive, every player who wagers R50 or more on the Bet Slip generated by the Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge entry, will automatically have their potential winning payout from the competition, doubled!

Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Stuart Pettigrew saddles Tulip Tree in Race 6.

She ran on from last when winning her last start over 1600m on this course.

The daughter of What A Winter won her only attempt over this course and distance. She received a six-pound penalty for her last win.

She jumps from pole position and can notch up her fourth career victory.

Mcebisi from the Corne Spies stable may be the horse to close off the meeting.

His last two starts have been fair.

He returns from a 12-week break which may have done him the world of good.

He has won once, finished second once and third once from four starts on this course.

The son of Byword takes a slight drop in class and if not in need of the run, he can return to winning ways.
