Hollywoodbets Scottsville Best Bets – Sunday 8 December 2019

Jockeys riding horses

Winning Form brings you their best tips for Hollywoodbets Scottsville racing on Sunday 8 December 2019. Comments, betting, and silks are provided! Tips provided come from Winning Form, as well as their back page tipster – Magic Tips by PeTeBe.

Racing returns to the capital of KwaZulu-Natal this weekend with a nine race programme planned for Hollywoodbets Scottsville.  With Hollywoodbets promising a guaranteed 10% for all winning pick 6 tickets taken on course one can be sure that the Mariannhill Toll Plaza on the N3 will have a backlog of traffic with Durban racing fanatics rushing up for a piece of the action, especially with the Pick 6 pool guaranteed to reach R1.6million.

Scottsville which is known for being a sprinters paradise in KZN, thanks to its long sprint straight, will see four out of the nine races being sprint trips. Over the years, inside draws have been preferred on these trips, but in more recent times it has become fair regardless of the draw you receive.  Those 4 races look open, hence the reason our in-house tipsters have gone for the best and value bets on races which are races which are around the bend.

The Magic Tips Page by PeTeBe best bet comes in the last race with Twice Golden. The son of Twice Over has gone close in his last two starts and with Marcus up he should be able to finally crack his maiden. PeTeBe’s value bet comes in race 7 with Paths Of Victory. Luke Ferraris rides and after his double on Summer Cup day last Saturday, he should definitely be able to get this one into the shake-up.

Jimmy The Rich, also went for Anton Marcus as his best bet. Rich went for him in race 4 on Jackson Wells. This daughter of Jackson ran on well on debut finishing under a length to the winner.  With the natural improvement to come from that run, she looks hard to oppose in this contest. His value bet comes up in race 6 with The Master. The son of Master Of My Fate has his second run after a rest on Sunday and should strip much better than his latest when just missing out in second.

Sunday will also be the third raceday of the KZN Sizzling Summer Challenge and top quality racing is guaranteed. So look no further than the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ where racing at Hollywoodbets Scottsville will be sure to liven up the town.

19.12.04 HWBLOG POSTIMG Pick 6 SUN

We’re thrilled to announce that there will be a guaranteed R1.6 million Pick 6 pool this Sunday 8 December at Hollywoodbets Scottsville!

To sweeten the deal, we’ll be adding a 10% winner’s bonus on all Tab Gold Pick 6 bets taken on-course!  

How does it work?

Punter takes a Pick 6 at the course (Hollywoodbets Greyville or Hollywoodbets Scottsville) with TAB.

If the punter wins, he/she will be entitled to a 10% bonus based on their dividend. For example, if the dividend paid out is R100 their bonus will be R10 (R100 x 10%).

The punter can only collect the bonus at one of the two racecourses and can only collect at subsequent race meetings. Example: Pick 6 for Hollywoodbets Greyville on Sunday 1 December 2019, the bonus will be available at the next meeting (and subsequent meetings), either at Hollywoodbets Greyville or Hollywoodbets Scottsville.

The bonus can only be collected at the Hollywoodbets cubicle at either racecourse.

In order for the punter to collect their bonus, they will first need to cash out their Pick 6 ticket at the course with TAB and get a receipt. The punter must then produce the original receipt at the Hollywoodbets cubicle in order to be paid out the 10% bonus.  The payout clerk must retain the original receipt.

Any payments over R5 000 will be paid via EFT.

All FIC rules apply.


Winning Form Best Bets
Race 3: QUATRO FIVE SIX (16)
Race 9: KING JULIAN (4)


Magic Tips Best Bets


Jockey: W Kennedy  – Trainer: P Lafferty

EXPLOSIVE BEAUTY has only had the two runs, but has finished close up in both of them despite giving away start at the jump. She drops back to the six furlongs, over which she made her debut. She had to be eased at the 400M mark in her last start and with in-form Warren Kennedy retaining the ride, she looks to be the one to side with here.


Race 6: GIMME PEACE (8)

Jockey: K De Melo – Trainer: M Dixon

GIMME PEACE has his peak run here and has rattled off a hat-trick of wins, two of which have been over this distance. He won going away in his latest triumph over seven furlongs and should not be troubled by his wideish draw. Keagan de Melo, who has been on board in the geldings last three wins, retains the ride here.


Race 8: GRADUATE (12)
Jockey:  A Marcus –  Trainer: D Bosch 

GRADUATE is the only runner on the day from the Dennis Bosch yard, but he gets the services of Anton Marcus and must be respected here. He was running on well in his hat-trick attempt over this trip last time out and will be looking to make amends this afternoon.


Race 9: TWICE GOLDEN (11)
Jockey: A Marcus  – Trainer: G Puller

TWICE GOLDEN has only just been denied victory in his last two outings over further, but will be out to go one better here. He likes to be handy in his races and Anton may well be able to keep him going all the way through to the wire. His wide draw should not be an issue as he is likely to use his early gate speed to get across to lead.



Jockey: L Ferraris – Trainer: G van Zyl

PATHS OF VICTORY has his peak run here. He finished 0.5L in front of WHITE LIGHTNING is his last win over twelve furlongs but is 3kgs worse off at today’s weights, which should be enough for that result to be reversed. However, that was over some distance more than today’s race and perhaps the Blackball form of 20 October over 1900M is a better guide. In that race the former finished 6.55L in front of the latter and is 2.5kgs better off at today’s weights.
