En­joy The View’s a Force to be reck­oned with

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express - Bonginkosi Nkosi

Michael Roberts-trained En­joy The View’s form clearly proves he is most lethal at Hol­ly­wood­bets Scottsvill­e race­course – es­pe­cially over 1200m – hav­ing recorded an im­pres­sive two vic­to­ries from three out­ings.

Roberts has never made se­cret of the fact he be­lieves this three-year-old son of Capetown Noir is a good horse and to his credit, he has been spot-on thus far.

En­joy The View fin­ished a dis­ap­point­ing 14th in the Ready To Run Cup in his penul­ti­mate of­fer­ing, but the ve­teri­nar­ian con­firmed he was fa­tigued.

This geld­ing was given a three-month break and the time off seems to have done him the world of good be­cause he showed ab­so­lutely no signs of ring-rust in his follow-up, out­class­ing Made In Hol­ly­wood to win by an ex­tend­ing two lengths.

That was a win full of merit if you con­sider the fact he also gave the run­nerup 2.5kg.

En­joy The View should im­prove more than the mar­gin he won by now that he has had a run un­der the belt.

On this ev­i­dence, he should win Race 4, a Pin­na­cle Stakes race over 1200m at Scottsvill­e on Sun­day.

“I have worked him for the last two months and he has just blos­somed over the last few weeks,” said jockey Serino Mood­ley – who re­tains the ride.

“The work this horse puts up at home is un­be­liev­able and his form is sim­ply bril­liant at this course.”

His log­i­cal danger Drunken Sailor.

Al­though this Yo­gas Goven­der-trained son of Ir­ish Flame is as con­sis­tent he is hard to rec­om­mend for the vic­tory be­cause he al­ways finds some­thing to beat him.

In fact, he has reg­is­tered two sec­onds and three thirds from five at­tempts at this venue.

Un­der­rated jockey Marco van Rens­burg’s con­sis­tency is start­ing to pay off and he has worked his way up to the No 9 spot on the na­tional jock­eys’ cham­pi­onship log.

He should add an­other win­ner to his tally when teamed up with the Stu­art Pet­ti­grew-trained Seat­tle Force in Race 7, the UmThom­bothi Stakes (NonBlack Type) over 1950m.
