Hollywoodbets Greyville Wednesday Tips and Race Previews by Andrew Harrison
3 FLYING PETER 2 TREAD SWIFTLY 1 LIGHT THAT LOOSE 5 THE SNOW WAR
Preview: FLYING PETER (3) made a promising debut. That run should bring him on nicely. TEAD SWIFTLY (2) caught the eye in a barrier trial behind the promising older filly Dancing Feather and is one to watch in the betting. The same goes for LIGHT THAT LOOSE (1). Andrew Harrison: 3-2-1-5).
8 MACALLAN 9 TONIGHTSFIGHTNIGHT 11 TRANSONIC 4 TROMSO
Preview: Open race. MACALLAN (8) has been costly to follow having been a beaten favourite at his last three starts but he can do better over this trip. TONIGHTSFIGHTNIGHT (9) was green on debut but was not far back. He is sure to come on from that effort. TRANSONIC (11) was touched off over course and distance last run. He has drawn wide again but must rate a strong chance. TROMSO (4) made a fair debut and is another that should come on with the experience. (Andrew Harrison: 8-9-11-4).
1 SPANISH OASIS 5 HIGHLAND HEATHER 10 BLANCHETTA 8 LEADING LYRIC
Preview: SPANISH OASIS (1) Has her third run after a break. She is seldom far back and has a big chance in this line-up. HIGHLAND HEATHER (5) has had one run back since a break. She is lightly raced and has shown ability. BLANCHETTA (10) was a well beaten second last run but meets a weak field here and has a chance of going one better. LEADING LYRIC (8) raced green in a fair debut and can finish in the money. (Andrew Harrison: 1-5-10-8).
3 RAILTRIP 2 JOSEPH JAGGER 6 SPECIAL BLEND 5 ELECTRIC SURGE
Preview: RAILTRIP (3) has been costly to follow but she may now be in the right race. She has been lumping big weights and is better off in this set weights contest. JOSEPH JAGGER (2) is unbeaten in both starts on the poly. Both were close finishes. SPECIAL BLEND (6) has consistent form in blinkers and was touched off last run. The stable is quiet at the moment but will turn eventually. ELECTRIC SURGE (5) is way better than her last run. She has a light weight and can finish in the money. (Andrew Harrison: 3-2-6-5).
9 AD ALTISIMA 8 MUTAWAARY 6 KINGSTON ROCK 10 CAPTAIN COBALT
Preview: AD ALTISIMA (9) has smart form over course and distance. He has drawn a little wide but should make a bold showing. MUTAWAARY (8) tried further last run but seems more at home of this shorter trip. KINGSTON ROCK (6) has consistent form to weaker but only has 50kg to should which should make him competitive. CAPTAIN COBALT (10) is always dangerous. He is better than his last run. (Andrew Harrison: 9-8-6-10).
6 RACHEL 7 BRUNILDA 9 SHEIK’S STORM 3 VALERIANA
Preview: RACHEL (6) has come to hand in blinkers and went close last time out. She can go one better. BRUNILDA (7) was a facile maiden winner last start. She had been a little unlucky at her two previous outings and has a strong chance of going in again. SHEIK’S STORM (9) is always game but does appear a length or two better over an extra furlong. VALERIANA (3) may just have needed her last run and can improve. (Andrew Harrison: 6-7-9-3).
12 PINA COLADA 1 POPOVA 7 SPIFFY 5 KEEP ON DANCING
Preview: PINA COLADA (12) does not have the best of draws but goes very well over the trip and is consistent. She is due a change of fortune. POPOVA (1) last run is best ignored as she pulled up lame and coughing. She had been showing signs of winning again prior to that and from pole position should be much improved. SPIFFY (7) showed up nicely in her first run back from a break. The cheek pieces go on. KEEP ON DANCING (5) was a comfortable maiden winner last outing. That form has stood up but she does have a big weight. (Andrew Harrison: 12-1-7-5).
11 FADE TO BLACK 5 TILMEETH 4 BACKPACKER 9 TEICHMAN
Preview: FADE TO BLACK (11) has drawn wide but has put in two promising recent efforts and looks the part. TILMEETH (5) makes his debut for his new stable. He has shown some fair Highveld form and at best should go close. BACKPACKER (4) was a well beaten second last run but took to the poly surface and should be competitive. TEICHMAN (9) was not too far back from a wide draw. He is lightly raced and can be dangerous. (Andrew Harrison: 11-5-4-9).
