Greeff to win Poly Challenge

MADAME SPEAKER

Jack Milner: As the result of the two-month lockdown, there is some “carryover” from last year into the 2020/21 season which began on Saturday. One of those events is the third leg of the World Sports Betting East Cape Poly Challenge (Non-Black Type) over 1600m.

All horses go into Monday’s meeting on the Polytrack at Fairview one year older than they were last Friday.

It comes as no surprise Alan Greeff, champion trainer in Eastern Cape once again, saddles four of the 11 runners in this event, including the top two in the betting, Madame Speaker and American Landing.

Madame Speaker, however, will be very hard to beat. She is the best handicapped runner and has outstanding form on the Polytrack, having run eight times for four wins and four seconds. Over 1600m on the surface, she has notched up one win and two seconds in her three runs.

All of Earth Hour, Toltec, The Highway Man, Bold Viking, Bold Coast and Lets Play Ball were beaten by the daughter of Pathfork over 1450m at this course in June and all of them are worse off at the weights.

Teaque Gould takes the ride and he knows the mare well. He has ridden her nine times for four wins, four seconds and one third.

American Landing looks the main threat. He has run against better than he meets in this event, but he has yet to race on the Polytrack. He is quite a versatile, having won the East Cape Derby over 2400m in 2018 but is equally at home over 1600m.

He does have to give 2.5kg to Madame Speaker but if he takes to the surface, he could trouble the five-year-old mare.

Charles Ndlovu takes the ride.
