Brendan Gaillard: Trainer Alan Greeff has a decent hand in the Listed East Cape Paddock Stakes over 1600m at Fairview on Frtiday and the pick of his six carded runners could be Love Supreme.
This Silvano filly will be having her first run under the care of Greeff and as we have noticed over the years, he has a knack of getting the best out of recruited fillies.
Love Supreme arrives in Port Elizabeth after a good third-place finish behind Dynamic Diana at Kenilworth in April.
From a good draw and with stable jockey Greg Cheyne aboard, she has every chance of winning, although the switch to polytrack is a question mark, as she hasn’t appeared on the surface before.
There are a number of possible winners as the race is open.
Western Cape-trained runners always deserve respect when raiding and there are a number of them seeking Black Type for their fillies. Red Ginger for Justin Snaith Racing must be considered, especially with Richard Fourie aboard.
Red Ginger was not at her best last time out but is ideally distance suited. She did flop on her only previous PE and poly appearance though.
Trainer Candice Bass-Robinson has sent down Ontenderhooks and Woodstock Fairy and both must be considered.
It looks a tough day to find winners but Cove Fort in Race 2 could be worth a wager. The Elusive Fort colt Cove Fort showed promise when third on debut. He found good betting support that day so improvement can be expected if handling the poly.
