Bettors can get off to a winning start in Race 1, a Maiden Plate over 1400m at Greyville on Tuesday when Future Saint makes his debut for trainer Kom Naidoo.

The Futura gelding was last seen making up a ton of ground over this course and distance to finish second.

Hopefully Tristan Godden will be able to keep him closer to the leading group this time and be closer when turning into the straight.

It will help that Hollywoodbets Scottsville has a longer straight than Hollywoodbets Greyville and although he finished unplaced on debut, he does have the advantage of having run on the track.

He also did tend to hang out late last time so he possibly could be a slightly tricky ride. That issue often goes away once the horse has had a run or two.

But, as his name suggests, he is not quite a saint yet, that’s coming in the future and hopefully his will arrive on Tuesday.

Mayor Of Merrivale could be the runner to beat in Race 2, a Maiden Handicap over 1800m. He is carrying top weight of 60kg, and he might be disregarded by some, especially as his form appears patchy, but there is quality in there.

He recently gave weight away to subsequent handicap winner Laudato and ran up close to him.

Early favourite Electric Storm didn’t show much in his one Polytrack start. He ran two good races in a row on turf but has not been the easiest of rides and looks beatable back on the synthetic.
