Good early bets at Greyville

DENNIS BOSCH

Jack Milner: As is so often the case with Monday meetings on the Polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville, the best bets on the card come up early in the day.

Bettors can get off to a good start with bankers in the first two races and Swingers and Exactas in Race 1, a Maiden Plate over 1000m for fillies and mares.

Dennis Bosch and Anton Marcus team up with Yata and this three-year-old Judpot filly will take a power of beating. She has only run twice, finishing a 1.65-length fifth over 1000m on the Polytrack and then a 0.50-length second behind Our Emily over 1200m on the turf where she was only caught late.

With that experience under her belt and the return to 1000m, she really stands out in this field.

The horse to chase her home looks to be Austen from the Dennis Drier yard. Drier has had some dryer days than usual in feature races, especially the Grade 1 sprints at Scottsville which he has dominated.

But recently his stable has been sending out a slow trickle of winners among a string of placed runners. Austen has been costly to follow but the move to drop Austen to 1000m could be the way to go.

Exactas and Swingers with Yata is the way to go.

Drier should be in the winner’s enclosure in Race 2, a Graduation Plate over 1000m, where he sends out Pray For Rain. This four-year-old Soft Falling Rain gelding looks to have scared off some of the opposition as he meets only five rivals. He is at least 11kg better handicapped than his closest rival and the manner in which he demolished a much stronger field in the Listed Umngeni Handicap over this course and distance on the Polytrack on Gold Cup day, makes impossible to oppose.

Tristan Godden rode him to victory on that occasion and Drier has engaged him for this ride.
