Chill to warm the pun­ters’ hearts

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express - Ken Ni­col

Scar­let Chill made a very en­cour­ag­ing come­back fol­low­ing a short rest and should re­sume win­ning ways in the head­lin­ing Hol­ly­wood Greyville Poly­track FM 91 Hand­i­cap over 1400m to­day.

This Alyson Wright-trained filly is a daugh­ter of What A Win­ter and she ran on stoutly from last to only be beaten 1.5 lengths a few weeks ago and should strip fit­ter on this oc­ca­sion.

All three of her wins have come over 200m fur­ther, but she has dis­played a lik­ing for this sur­face, win­ning two from three races.

Tris­tan God­den has struck up a good re­la­tion­ship with the Wright yard and if he has her po­si­tioned within strik­ing dis­tance turn­ing for home she can be ex­pected to mow them down car­ry­ing a handy 56kg.

Oloye and Pe­tra are the two most likely to give cheek.

It may be a day for the lesser lights in the jockey ranks, as an­other who ap­peals strongly is Garth Puller’s Noemi in Race 5.

Promis­ing 4kg-claimer Jabu Ja­cobs part­ners this one and she re­turns to the course and dis­tance over which both of her wins were scored. From a plum in­side draw she will take some stop­ping.

Re­mark­ably An­ton Mar­cus was favourite in all eight races when Bet­ting World priced up. In race or­der Holy Gua­camole (12-10), Fergie’s Rock (11-10), Duchess Of Malfi (13-10), Baby Shooz (12-10), First Sight­ing (13-10), Pe­tra (22-10), Far­land (7-2) and Vi­sion To Glory (13-10) were his board top­pers.

Pun­ters should note that due to the Turf­fontein meet­ing from Satur­day be­ing re­ar­ranged to to­day a num­ber of jock­eys are now not rid­ing at Greyville.

They are Warren Kennedy, Den­nis Sch­warz, Naresh Juglall, Calvin Habib, Ray­mond Danielson and Ja­son Gates.
