Timeform pick out three bets from Greyville on Wednesday.
"...he will be so much happier stepped up to this mile this afternoon..."
Timeform on Hector Heathcote
Silver Prancer just gets better the further she goes with a tenth over six furlongs, a length and half second over seven, and most recently a half-length second to Vilette over the mile here at the beginning of last month. The daughter of top sire Silvano still took a while to get in to top gear that day, and Silver Prancer could finally get off the mark stepped up to nine furlongs here by top trainer Dennis Drier and to be ridden by jockey Sean Veale.
Hector Heathcote has his first official race this afternoon but has some track experience after winning a Barrier Trial here over five furlongs last month when running on hard held to get up by the narrowest of margins. A son of Pathfork, he will be so much happier stepped up to this mile this afternoon, and with Richard Fourie booked to steer by trainer Dennis Bosch, Hector Heathcote can get off the mark and land the odds today.
Call Me Winter has been in a rich vein of form lately but without success, with a second and a third here over a furlong further, beaten half a length on each occasion and at odds of 13/1 and 9/2 respectively. Left on the same rating here, the drops back of a furlong may well see her bowl along at or near the front over this reduced trip, and if that is the case then Call Me Winter will take some passing, and she won't be stopping close home unlike some in this field.
