Workers’ Day At Hollywoodbets Greyville

The venue for today’s racemeeting (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

Racing on Workers’ Day today is on the Hollywoodbets Greyville polytrack and eight races are carded.

Don’t forget about the free to play Hollywoodbets Punters’ Challenge with the first due off at 12h35.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Gareth van Zyl sends out Canford Queen in Race 3. She showed good improvement in her last start over this course and distance.

She raced from a handy position and stayed on to finish second.

The daughter of Canford Cliffs is a progressive type. She meets the right field and with Richard Fourie in the saddle, she should be the one to beat.

Future Of Energy from the Mark Dixon stable represents decent each way value in Race 4. He is better than his last two starts over 1600m.

He has won once and finished second once from three starts on this course.

The way he finishes off his races suggests that he will love the rise to 1900m. He drops in class and from pole position, he may be the one to cause the upset.

Rested horses:

Race 5 No 7 NIGHTJAR had a 150 day break due to recovering from a strained hamstring.

Race 7 No 4 MISS PAGET had a 164 day break due being rested.

Race 8 No 9 PUFF OF SMOKE had a 140 day break due to a change of stable yards.
