Van Zyl Worth A Follow Today

Morne Winnaar is not riding today

Nine races are carded at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth this afternoon.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h40.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gareth van Zyl sends out King Pelles in Race 7.

He took on a competitive field in the Grade 2 Cape Punters Cup last time.

He was sent to the front that day which may not be his preferred running style.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since.

The son of Duke Of Marmalade tries the 1800m and if ridden with some restraint, he should take a power of beating.

Blue Holly from the Glen Kotzen stable takes her place in Race 8.

She should have finished closer to the winner in the Grade 2 Southern Cross Stakes last time as she had to be steadied in the latter stages.

She has finished third twice from as many starts over this course and distance. Her last victory came under Raymond Danielson and with luck in running, she may find herself in the winner’s enclosure.

Please note that Morne Winnaar is not riding today.
