Green With Envy upped in Ratings



Independent On Saturday Drill Hall Stakes (Grade 2)

ROYAL AUSSIE remains unchanged on a rating of 124 after winning the Grade 2 Independent On Saturday Drill Hall Stakes over 1400m on the turf course at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday 8 May. The Handicappers were of the view that 3rd placed GLADATORIAN made for the most suitable line horse in this event and his rating remains unchanged on 120.

The only horse to receive a rating’s increase here was GIMMEANOTHERCHANCE who was adjusted to 115 from 111.

Only 1 horse received a drop in the ratings for this event, AL MUTHANA was dropped to 123 from 125.


World Sports Betting Guineas (Grade 2)

GREEN WITH ENVY was increased from 119 to 123 after he got-up to impressively win the Grade 2 WSB Guineas over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday. His win was eye catching as the runner-up SANDRINGHAM SUMMIT was given every chance and in fact had first run on GREEN WITH ENVY who quickened up smartly.

3rd placed SNOW PILOT was used as the line horse here, leaving him unchanged on a rating of 120.

4th placed HLUHLUWE was increased from 111 to 117 for finishing 1.4 lengths or 3 points behind the 120 rated line horse at level weights. MID-WINTER WIND was increased to 116 from 114 for finishing a short head behind the now 117 rated HLUHLUWE at level weights. NAVAJO NATION, who was beaten only 2.45 lengths by the winner, was given a marginal increase from 103 to 110 despite achieving a higher performance figure. The Handicappers felt that NAVAJO NATION was suited to the slow run tempo of this race and may be flattered by his margin behind the winner and opted not to take his performance figure literally.

No horses from this race were given a rating’s drop.


World Sports Betting Fillies Guineas (Grade 2)

RASCOVA has had her rating raised from 115 to 119 after she won the Grade 2 WSB Fillies Guineas over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday. The Handicappers felt that DOUBLE GRAND SLAM made for the most suitable line horse here and her rating remained unchanged on 118.

The Handicappers noted the time of this race was significantly faster than the World Sports Betting Guineas and the margins were more stretched out which is indicative of a faster run race. Accordingly, both 3rd placed CELTIC BEAUTY and 4th placed SOVEREIGN GRANT were adjusted to their actual performance figures of 104 and 103 respectively.

There were no other changes to ratings in this race.
