Hollywoodbets Scottsville 5 August 2020 – Tips

1

14 TIMES NEW ROMAN   1 MASTER DANCER   9 WINGING IT   7 TONIGHTSFIGHTNIGHT

Preview: Mostly first timers but TIMES NEW ROMAN (14) made a promising local debut and should come on from that. The stable has also hit form. MASTER DANCER (1) did better when back to a sprint last run. He has been rested but has a 4kg claimer aboard. WINGING IT (9) did not take to the poly last run. He has shown ability and should feature prominently. TONIGHTSFIGHTNIGHT (7) has tried further at his last two. He may prove better over this shorter trip. (Andrew Harrison: 14-1-9-7).

2

7 LAVU LAVU   10 CANTATA CHOIR   13 TWICEASFAST   11 CHANEL ALLURE

Preview: LAVU LAVU (7) made a smart debut at long odds. She should come on from that but there should again not be much between her and CANTATA CHOIR (10) who made marked improvement in blinkers. TWICEASFAST (13) made a promising debut and should come on lengths from that effort. One to watch in the betting. CHANEL ALLURE (11) is battling but has not been far back at recent outings. (Andrew Harrison: 7-10-13-11).

3

11 CANDYMAN   10 SHAVOUT   6 FERRARI ICE   13 RADAMES

Preview: CANDY MAN (11) beaten favourite last run when tried in blinkers. Big chance on a repeat showing. SHAVOUT (10) found good market support on debut and showed up well. He should come on lengths from that showing. FERRARI ICE (6) made a smart debut at long odds. He must have a big chance on that showing. RADAMES (13) is lightly raced and was narrowly beaten last outing. Draw is a concern. (Andrew Harrison: 11-10-6-13).

4

10 COMMAND CONTROL   12 FADE TO BLACK   3 WALNUT  11 COSSACK WARRIOR  

Preview: COMMAND CONTROL (10) is lightly raced but has shown up well in both starts. He should go well here. FADE TO BLACK (12) is another that showed improvement in blinkers and has been knocking at the door. WALNUT (3) is also lightly raced and can do better than his last start when racing in blinkers. Blinkers off and should improve. COSSACK WARRIOR (11) was much improved in blinkers last run and can do even better over this trip. (Andrew Harrison: 10-12-3 11).

5

4 BLUE WINTER   7 ELUSIVE CURRENT   3 DANCING SWORD   2 CAPRICCIO

Preview: BLUE WINTER (4) is lightly raced but has consistent recent form. She is a big runner. ELUSIVE CURRENT (7) has put in two good efforts to date and should feature prominently again. DANCING SWORD (3) just needed her last run. Lightly raced but has shown ability. CAPRICCIO (2) tried further at her last two but does seem better over this shorter trip. (Andrew Harrison: 4-7-3-2).

6

10 TO THE MAX   1 LADY OF LUTETIA   4 WICHITA   13 CAPTIVE GOLD

Preview: TWO THE MAX (10) is overdue.  She has improved with each outing since returning from a break and should be cherry-ripe. LADY OF LUTETIA (1) has had plenty of chances but looks the part in this field and should go close. WICHITA (4) has run her best race on this course and the extra should suit. CAPTIVE GOLD (13) returns from a break. She was a beaten favourite before that. She may need this outing but is one to watch. (Andrew Harrison: 10-1-4-13).

7

4 BAYVIEW EXPRESS   7 BEFORE NOON   3 MERLIN FROM BERLIN   2 IRISH WONDER GIRL

Preview: Open race. BAYVIEW EXPRESS (4) won well first run out of the maidens. He is held in high regard by the stable and the blinkers come off over the extra. BEFORE NOON (7) was narrowly beaten in the Gold Vase and his last win was over course and distance. MERLIN FROM BERLIN (3) came from the clouds when narrowly beaten in the Chapter Challenge final. He goes well this course and distance. IRISH WONDER GIRL (2) was not disgraced behind the progressive Diamondsandpearls last time out carrying a big weight. She can go close again. (Andrew Harrison: 4-7-3-2).

8

2 CANDY GALORE   8 WIZZ OF ODDS   3 MADAME PATRICE   4 QUEEN OF ALAMO

Preview: CANDY GALORE (2) goes very well over course and distance. This is her third run after a break and should go close again. Stable companion WIZZ OF ODDS (8) is quick and has had two outings since a break. She has a 4kg claimer up and at best will go close. MADAME PATRICE (3) comes from a very much in form stable. She has some useful Highveld form and is one to watch in the market. QUEEN OF ALAMO (4) has run two smart races since a break. A repeat of her last start will see her in the firing line but she looks held by Candy Galore at the weights. TRAVELLING LIGHT (5) took on much stronger last run. She goes well this trip and has a 2.5 kg claimer aboard. (Andrew Harrison: 2-8-3-4).

9

9 MISS KHALIFA   11 COLOUR OF LIGHT   14 BELLA BALLARINA   2 ACADEMIC GOLD

Preview: Tough race. MISS KHALIFA (9) has been trying further but was narrowly beaten last start and is never far back. COLOUR OF LIGHT (11) made a promising debut for her new stable and has a handy galloping weight. BELLA BALLARINA (14) has yet to finish out of the money since racing in blinkers. She should be thereabouts again. ACADEMIC GOLD (2) was an easy maiden winner last run but has shown some ability and has improved in blinkers. (Andrew Harrison: 9-11-14-2).

LOVE BOMB’S VICTORY FOR PERSEVERANCE

David Thiselton

The Frank Robinson-trained Love Bomb upset the meeting banker Caralluma in the Grade 2 Zulu Kingdom Explorer Golden Slipper over 1400m at Saturday’s Vodacom Durban July meeting.

This homebred is owned by Greg and Bev Whittaker and lived up to her name, which was given after a suggestion by Robinson.

The latter recalled, “From day one she was an absolute tank, a ball of muscle, and I commented she looked like a ‘bomb’ so we decided to call her Love Bomb.”

Her dam Boloval, who is by Captain Al out of the Grade 3 Debutante Stakes winner Rambo’s Love, was bought for R500,000 at the National Yearling Sales in 2011 into the Herman Brown and Frank Robinson joint training operation.

Robinson was left on his own in 2013 when Brown retired and after Boloval’s first three runs for a fourth, second and fifth he was able to purchase her from the original owner for R30,000 on behalf of Greg Whittaker and Gavin Wiggill.

In her first start for Greg and Gavin she won a maiden easily by 2,25 lengths over 1200m at Clairwood.

Robinson recalled, “She won nicely and I thought she could go all the way. She was from quite a good family and was a monster, big and strong.”

However, after one more run, she unfortunately rolled in her stable one day and fractured a hock.

Retired to stud, she was then sent to Mogok but dropped the foal mid-term.

She was subsequently sent to Ideal World, where she once again dropped the foal.

However, she then finally had a full term pregnancy and gave birth to a filly by Oratorio.

The foal impressed Robinson from day one.

In conformation she reminds Robinson of the Grade 1-winner he helped train, Chocolicious, but her first win on March 20 over 1000m on the Hollywoodbets Greyville poly reminded him of his good filly Olma, who had four wins and two seconds in six starts on the Greyville poly and was just as good on turf.

In Love Bomb’s second start in the Grade 1 Allan Robertson over 1200m at Scottsville, she hinted that she could be a contender for the Golden Slipper as she ran on from way back for a 4,25 length eighth and looked to be a bit short of room in the closing stages.

On Saturday Sean Veale found the rail in midfield from draw four. He began driving her around the final turn and she stayed on to win full of running by 0,80 lengths at odds of 35/1.

Veale confirmed that she would easily stay 1600m and she will start at much shorter odds on Gold Cup day in the Grade 1 Thekwini Stakes.
