Change of course should benefit Kannemeyer’s Sir Michael

KEAGAN DE MELO

There looked to be two good bets on Sunday’s card but while the move from Hollywoodbets Scottsville to Hollywoodbets Greyville will benefit one of them, it will cause problems for the other.

Luck has not always been on the side of Dean Kannemeyer-trained Sir Michael but everything looks to be in his favour on Sunday, especially the change of racecourse. He takes his place in a Race 7, MR 93 Handicap over 1400m and looks the best bet on the card.

He was not stopping when pressing Do It Again, who was having his Vodacom Durban July preparation run, to the wire over 1600m. That run was at Greyville so the move looks to enhance his chances.

Do It Again franked the form with a smashing fourth in the Durban July and that indicates Sir Michael will be very hard to beat.

Keagan de Melo takes the ride.

Sashay Away showed her pedigree when a decent fourth on debut. She is by Var out of a Western Winter mare, has plenty of speed and is the one to beat in Race 2, a Maiden Plate for fillies and mares over 1200m.

Unfortunately, she is drawn out wide, and while not a disaster at Scottsville, jockey Donovan Dillon will have his work cut out to win from there.

Nevertheless, the Peter Muscutt-trained filly looks to have a touch of class and hopefully will still prove too good for her opposition.
