Fairview Analysis - Friday, 15 March

Race 1

Race Summary: GOLDEN RULE put in a decent debut in the Western Cape and if the trip did not take too much out of him he looks the likely winner. GLOBAL STATE was slow and showed inexperience on debut but did run on well late and should fight out the finish. GOLDEN LINK ran well on debut and should like the extra 200m of this race. MISTER SPEAKER was not disgraced on debut and could improve. MY BEST SHOT has run on late in both his starts and could run on into some minor money,


#6 Golden Rule, #4 Global State, #5 Golden Link, #9 My Best Shot


Race 2

Race Summary: FIVE STAR MAGIC was very slow away on debut and ran on late. She was not as slow away in her second start and ran a decent race when chasing home a promising filly. She can go one better this time. SEE YOU IN A BIT has disappointed in her last two starts but has changed trainer and could contest the finish. ACT OF POWER has also changed trainer and is capable of improvement. CAPTAIN EFFICIENT is holding form and is not out of it. RAPTOR ISLAND is very speedy and can contest the finish again. SWISS WALT has been disappointing with blinkers up and these have been removed so expect a much better performance. CONNECTION was touched off last time out, but this does look a tougher task.


#16 Five Star Magic, #15 See You In A Bit, #7 Connection, #6 Raptor Island


Race 3

Race Summary: FINAL EDITION is holding form well and from a good draw could be the right one. Blinkers have been added. EYJAFJALLAJOKULL is unreliable but is quite capable of winning a race like this. PATH OF CHOICE is holding form well and would not be a surprise winner. MAKHACHEV is back in a handicap and could be the surprise package. HAWK CIRCLE showed what he is capable of with a narrow win last time out and could be in the shake-up once again. CHARLIE MALONE continues to hold form and is not out of it.


#5 Final Edition, #1 Eyjafjallajokull, #2 Path Of Choice, #6 Hawk Circle


Race 4

Race Summary: More was expected from ON THE GUEST LIST but a slow pace seemed her undoing and perhaps she can make amends. GET IT DONE and TRIP TO BARBERTON fought out an exciting finish last time out and at these weights GET IT DONE must be favoured to turn the tables on that rival. TRIP TO BARBERTON has been very brave in her last two wins and deserves the utmost respect. MAIDEN'S COVE does not always show her best form but is capable of running well when in the mood. KAVIAN'S CARA bounced back to her very best when scoring last time out and has a place chance. DE JANEIRO makes her local debut after a change of trainer and should be included in all exotics.


#5 On The Guest List, #3 Get It Done, #4 Trip To Barberton, #7 Maiden's Cove


Race 5

Race Summary: GRAZINGINTHEGRASS was caught too far out of his ground last time. This course and distance suits him best and he is weighted to win. BUSH TRACKER has been most effective on the Polytrack of late but was not beaten far last time. Stable companions from the Gavin Smith yard, PERFECTION and CHERRY ANO, are talented but have been in and out of late. Neither would be a surprise winner. MHLABENI showed his best to win last time out and will give them all something to catch. BRENDEN JAMES and SEQUOIA are in good form and are capable of contesting the finish as well.


#1 Grazinginthegrass, #3 Perfection, #8 Brenden James, #4 Cherry Ano


Race 6

Race Summary: JOY AND PEACE has always looked the type who would be best suited to a longer distance and she was flying at the finish last time out. She gets the chance to prove that theory. PUBLIC BENEFIT has been very good without winning lately but should be right there at the finish. BACK FOR MORE and GIDEON'S DAUGHTER have ability and try further this time. WOMAN'S WORLD was not disgraced when third last time out and should have no problems with this distance. QUERANDI steps up markedly in distance and has made the trip from Cape Town so deserves some respect.


#1 Joy And Peace, #2 Public Benefit, #9 Woman's World, #10 Querandi


Race 7

Race Summary: An interesting race. SPLICETHEMAINBRACE did not look a likely winner in running in both of her starts so far but won both of them. She was caught out of her ground last time out at this course yet won easily. She is clearly a brave filly and can pull off a hat-trick over an extra 200m this time. PRISCILLA MAISEY has run well twice and that Western Cape form could prove good enough to win this race. HAPPY HOLLY is speedy and is not out of it.


#7 Splicethemainbrace, #6 Priscilla Maisey, #3 Happy Holly, #4 Magdala


Race 8

Race Summary: A very open looking handicap and the suggestion is to load up in this leg of the exotics like the Pick 6. IRONTAIL is a difficult ride but has been unlucky of late and could win a race over this course and distance. GRADUATION TIME did not show his best last time out and is clearly better than that run would suggest. COASTAL PATH has won over this course and distance before and will be ridden by Richard Fourie. FIERY DUKE has won over this track and trip too. SIRNIHAALLONGSWORD and LOOKING HOT are two others capable of running well.


#8 Irontail, #2 Coastal Path, #3 Fiery Duke, #4 Sirnihaallongsword


Best Win: #6 GOLDEN RULE                        

Best Value Bet:                                       

Best Longshot: #8 IRONTAIL
