Cheyne to revel in the rain

GREG CHEYNE

Jack Milner: The combination of trainer Alan Greeff and jockey Greg Cheyne has been relatively quiet this season but that could all change at Fairview on Monday when they race on the Polytrack.

Going into this meeting it is Gavin Smith who heads up the trainers’ log in the Eastern Cape on 31 winners, six clear of Greeff.

Cheyne has been leading jockey in the province on numerous occasions but this season he finds himself trailing Warren Kennedy and Richard Fourie by 11 and three rides respectively.

But Cheyne has seven rides for Greeff on the card and most of them look to have winning chances.

Best of the day could be Inherit The Rain in Race 2, a MR 86 Handicap over 1000m. The four-year-old gelding has raced twice, both over 1200m on the Polytrack, since moving to Port Elizabeth and finished second on both occasions.

He ran runner-up to Global Drummer on debut and then went down just a neck to Valetorio in his next start. Inherit The Rain has good enough pace to be highly competitive over 1000m and is sure to benefit from having Cheyne in the irons for the first time.

Lollapalooza was strongly fancied to win her last start over 1400m at the track but went down one length to Justadoreher. She pulled up with a scalp wound which might have accounted for the defeat, but this three-year-old daughter of Soft Falling Rain is strongly expected to put it all together when she lines up in Race 7, a MR 76 Handicap for fillies and mares over 1600m.

She will enjoy the additional 200m, is beautifully drawn in gate No 2 and looks a banker on a rather tricky card.

Cheyne also has winning chances with African Hoopoe in Race 1 and Que Cosas in Race 4.
