TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 1: BY THE WAY(1)
Jockey: Warren KENNEDY - Trainer: Gareth VAN ZYL
BY THE WAY has remained consistent despite being costly to follow but she was beaten fair and square by the highly rated first timer Torbenite on this surface eleven weeks ago. This drop to the minimum trip suits the daughter of Byword who should again be extremely competitive.
Race 4: SOLSBURY HILL(11)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Alyson WRIGHT
SOLSBURY HILL would have strengthened during the 18-week absence and the well-bred son of Var should build on his improved second outing which was over this c & d in the spring. Of course, that formline worked out extremely well with the runner-up Sigismund and 3rd placed entrant Spume winning since. The engaging of top jockey Marcus indicates that the yard will have the chestnut fit and well.
Race 5: BLACKBURN ROC(1)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Dennis DRIER
This is a highly competitive six-furlong handicap but the three-year-old joint top weight BLACKBURN ROC is progressive and should make his presence felt. The Drier inmate had an excusable last run in strong company on the grass but produced quality form on this surface prior to that, including going close under a bigger mass on handicap debut over this c & d in his penultimate effort. He could enjoy being equipped with blinkers today.
Race 8: PAYBACKTHEMONEY(11)
Jockey: Donovan DILLON - Trainer: Nathan KOTZEN
There was much to admire about PAYBACKTHEMONEY's eye-catching debut on the grass last month where he was completely unfancied yet overcame many issues to produce a fine display in a competitive field. He would have come on appreciably from the performance and should make natural improvement. Of course, the worry is how he will shape on this surface.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY
Race 6: FLAMENCO DANCER(2)
Jockey: Warren KENNEDY - Trainer: Dennis BOSCH
The Bosch stable holds a strong hand in this low-key fillies and mares handicap but the clear preference is for the four-year-old filly FLAMENCO DANCER who should improve on her moderate track record. She brings some fair recent form into this event but was making late progress over the minimum trip in mixed company on this surface twelve days ago. She certainly enjoys this extra furlong
