Harvey will not turn it up

CANDICE BASS-ROBINSON

Jack Milner: Candice Bass-Robinson makes the journey to Port Elizabeth on Monday with just two runners, and Turn It Up Harvey who contests Race 4, a Maiden Plate over 1600m, is likely to make the trip worthwhile.

Looking at his current form, it is hard to fathom why he has not yet won a race. The four-year-old son of Duke Of Marmalade has run a head second to Hurricane Harry, a 1.75-length second to two-time Grade 1 winner Golden Ducat and was a 0.50-length runner-up to Tillieangus.

Bass-Robinson even ran him in the R5-million CTS 1600 at Kenilworth on Sun Met day when he finished unplaced behind Count Jack.

He was gelded in March and then had to wait until after the lockdown to reappear. He has raced four times since for three places, his lone “shocker” coming in his penultimate race when well beaten behind Zo Lucky. However, that was in heavy going, which he might not have appreciated.

He comes into this race as the best weighted runner by at least 6.5kg, is perfectly drawn in pole position and has Lyle Hewitson in the irons.

There are two concerns. Firstly, he has yet to race on the Polytrack and secondly, Turn It Up Harvey has run unplaced in all three starts over 1600m.

But he will not get a better opportunity to shed his maiden and based on form, unless he hates the Polytrack, should have too much class for this field.

Winter Peace, who runs in Race 1, is the other runner from the Bass-Robinson yard but in six starts, the closest she has run to the winner is 8.80 lengths.
