Chrome Yel­low set to melt the track

The Herald (South Africa) - - Sport - Pun­ters’ Pal

It has been a bit of a tough time for pun­ters coun­try­wide at the race cour­ses re­cently as they are strug­gling to get into the mood of the fes­tive sea­son.

As al­ways, the pun­ters will re­turn to the scene of the crime and try to make amends for the upset re­sults that made life dif­fi­cult for them.

Last Fri­day at Fairview there were huge pay­outs as pun­ters strug­gled to find the win­ners.

We have an­other very dif­fi­cult card this Fri­day but it also means there are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to make some money.

Vis­it­ing trainer An­dré Nel might be able to help us out with a banker or two.

He is at­tack­ing the Fairview meet­ing with five run­ners and is in the Friendly City to win.

All the Nel run­ners have win­ning chances in their re­spec­tive races but the one that stands out is the geld­ing Crome Yel­low in the third race. This race is also the first leg of the Pick Six.

Crome Yel­low has Aldo Domeyer in the sad­dle and looks too strong for his op­po­si­tion in a Maiden Plate.

Even if this strong banker in the first leg comes home smok­ing, the Pick Six will still not be easy to catch as the other five legs look very com­pet­i­tive.

There is no fea­ture race but the sprint race for fil­lies and mares is the one not to be missed.

In the field of nine run­ners are some very good fil­lies to make sure this bat­tle will be the high­light of the meet­ing.

Nel gets in­volved in this one with Straat-Kind but lo­cal chal­lengers like Mary O’Reilly and Saltire will en­sure a very ex­cit­ing af­fair.

This month it is party time at Fairview as some com­pa­nies com­bine their year-end func­tions with a day at the races. The pun­ters will no doubt join the fes­tiv­i­ties if they can pull off the Pick Six or the ever-pop­u­lar Place Ac­cu­mu­la­tor.

Fairview trainer Yvette Brem­ner will be fly­ing the flag for the East­ern Cape at Ke­nil­worth in Cape Town on Satur­day.

The very speedy Port El­iz­a­beth filly Princess Rebel will con­test the South­ern Cross Stakes and the East Cape fans will be shout­ing her home.
