Hollywoodbets Greyville Wednesday Tips and Race Previews by Andrew Harrison
6 ZIVA DE GRACE 8 KINSKEY’S TUNE 3 GALACTICO 2 WINTER WHISTLE
Preview: The 4kg claim by apprentice Jabu Jacobs who booted home a treble at Scottsville last week, could finally see ZIVA DE GRACE (6) into the winner’s enclosure. Kom Naidoo’s filly has been game in all three of her starts and the five furlongs on the poly with the claim could be enough to see her home. KINSKEY’S TUNE (8) found good betting support last time out after making a promising debut but took on males in a small field but she looks a threat. GALACTICO (3) was not too far back in her Highveld debut and is sure to improve. WINTER WHISTLE (2) trialled well and is one to watch. (Andrew Harrison: 6-8-3-2).
9 HOT MONEY 8 RETAIL THERAPY 2 SPANISH OASIS 4 INGAKARA
Preview: Open race with weak form. HOT MONEY (9) was a beaten favourite at his last two but has been consistent and it could be third time lucky. RETAIL THERAPY (8) boasts some fair Cape form and was not too far back in her recent Vaal debut. She looks a threat. SPANISH OASIS (2) has done better than her last run and a tongue-tie has been added to her equipment. INGAKARA (4) made a modest debut last Wednesday but can come on from that. (Andrew Harrison: 9-8-2-4).
6 COZY DOT COM 4 TEETOTAL 8 AMBERBELL 1 PLAMHEART
Preview: COZY DOT COM (6) improved nicely at her second start when making her poly debut. She meets a weak field here and could have a little more scope. TEETOTAL (4) is a battling maiden but goes well on the poly and has not been far back. She will never get an easier chance. AMBERBELL (8) is another struggler nut has shown her best over coursed and distance PALMHEART (1) is down in trip and the blinkers go on. She may be one to keep an eye on. (Andrew Harrison: 6-4-8-1).
11 JONATHAN 5 FINAL ASSEMBLY 1 ENTERTHEDEBUTANTE 6 PETER PIPER
Preview: JONATHAN (11) was due to run last Friday night. He has a tricky draw but is much better than his last effort on the turf and is back on his favourite surface where he has shown consistent form. He does step up in trip. FINAL ASSEMBLY (5) was close-up in a blanket finish last run and a repeat can see him close again. ENTERTHEDEBUTANTE (1) takes on males but showed up well from a poor draw last run. Blinkers, a light weight and a plum draw sees a lot in her favour. PETER PIPER (6) is always game and was a fair second to Roy’s Physco who finally managed a second win last time out. (Andrew Harrison: 11-5-1-6).
10 ARRABIATA 3 DIAMONDSANDPEARLS 9 POPOVA 11 BARINOIS
Preview: ARRABIATA (10) has shown up well in two starts since shedding her maiden over course and distance. She tried further last run but looks more at home over this shorter trip. DIAMONDSANDPEARLS (3) won well last run and the extra furlong should not hold any fears from her good draw. POPOVA (9) has been coming to hand slowly and caught the eye over course and distance last time out. BARINOIS (11) is over her best course and distance. She was a close-up second last run and Jason Gates takes 1.5kg off her back. (Andrew Harrison: 10-3-9-11).
2 WINTER SUN 8 DIVE CAPTAIN 9 SANSKRIFT 7 CUT LOOSE
Preview: WINTER SUN (2) feature placed last season and has shown her best form over this distance. Her run in the Flamboyant Stakes is best ignored. DIVE CAPTAIN (8) is back on her favourite surface and can do much better than her last showing. CUT LOOSE (7) was a comfortable maiden winner last run but is lightly raced. SANSKRIFT (9) has been over further at her last two. She was a beaten favourite last run and can make amends. (Andrew Harrison: 2-8-9-7).
4 DRUNKEN SAILOR 10 DI MAZZIO 9 COLDHARDCASH 3 MR FITZ
Preview: DRUNKEN SAILOR (4) is seldom out of the money. The blinkers go on from a good draw. DI MAZZIO (10) goes for a winning hat-trick. He has drawn wide but is over his best course and distance. COLDHARDCASH (9) is quick and with a 4kg claimer aboard can make all. MR FITZ (3) is smart but is returning from a break and may just need it. (Andrew Harrison: 4-10-9-3).
3 LORD CARO 6 KING CYRUS 12 SOLICITOR GENERAL 11 TRANSONIC
Preview: LORD CARO (3) made sudden improvement last run. Good chance if he can repeat. KING CYRUS (6) was a little disappointing last run but is back on the poly where he showed some improvement. He’s lightly raced. SOLICITOR GENERAL (12) has shown his best form on the poly but has again drawn wide. TRANSONIC (11) has also drawn wide and returns from a break but he has shown some ability and has a chance in a weak field. (Andrew Harrison: 3-6-12-11).
