Scottsville Selections

Race 1 – 1000m (Juvenile Plate)

Lady Eli Mo showed remarkable improvement in her last start with the blinkers. She finished second behind Lock and Key, who also went on to win the first race on Durban July day. That form is franked, and she is a big threat here again with the blinkers and a 4kg claim. In a 1000m sprint race, she carries just 53kgs, and if off to a fast start, she may be hard to catch.

Suggested Bet – Lady Eli Mo EW @ 10/1

Race 2 – 1600m (Juvenile Plate)

Famous Warrior was a gutsy winner in his last start, and I like him to follow up with another win. He runs well for Rachel Venniker; the combination can run into the money.

Suggested Bet – Famous Warrior EW @ 5.5/1

Race 3 – 1000m (Maiden Plate)

World Pharoah produced a good run behind the favourite last time and should run well again. They meet on the same weights, but with luck in running, he can upset and run into the top three.

Suggested Bet – World Pharoah EW @ 9/1

Race 4 – 1400m (Maiden Plate)

Nocturnal Flight is having its first run in KZN after relocating from the Western Cape. He took on winners at his last start, and if he is settled in new surroundings, he is an EW value bet. He has decent form and can fight out the finish with some luck from his wide draw.

Suggested Bet – Nocturnal Flight EW @ 10/1EW Win

Race 5 – 1400m (Maiden Plate)

Since moving from the Eastern Cape, Yellow Jacket ran a good second in her first race in KZN. The blinkers have done the trick, and if she can confirm that last run, she should finish in the top four and give us some EW returns.

Suggested Bet – Yellow Jacket EW @ 8/1

Race 6 – 1750m (Maiden Plate)

The Mikado should have finished closer in his last start but hung towards the finish. The two-year-old has some fair form, and if he can run a straight line, he should be competitive in this field.

Suggested Bet – The Mikado EW @ 9/1EW Win

Race 7 – 1600m (Pinnacle Stakes)

It is a competitive Pinnacle Stakes and many with winning chances. Cyber Time has decent form and has been running against top-quality horses, such as Flag Man, Cape Eagle and One Way Traffic. He gets the service of the appie and carries just 49.5kgs. With the low galloping mass, he can be competitive in the featured race of the day.

Suggested Bet – Cyber Time EW @ 14/1

Race 8 – 1200m (MR 82 Handicap)

Winter Waves has won two in a row and is searching for the hat trick of wins. Voldemort is weighted to finish ahead of him, but Winter Waves is in a good space and can be competitive. It is encouraging that Rachel Venniker has opted to ride Winter Waves instead of Voldemort, so I like his EW chances.

Suggested Bet – Winter Waves EW @ 5.5/1

Race 9 – 1200m (FM 76 Handicap)

The lucky last, and you must go wide in exotics. Many of these horses get apprentices who claim weight advantages of 4kgs, so many have winning chances. I like Kailene to continue her fair form and run another strong race. Ideally, I would have preferred her over seven furlongs, but she should be okay with the 1200m. From a good draw of four, she should have a good position towards the finish and, if in front, can hold on with Rachel Venniker aboard.

Suggested Bet – Kailene EW @ 10/1
