hakim v buezelin

meeting preview for sat feb 27, 2021

The Hakim wagon slowed down a tad last weekend, but a double had him sharing the day's honours with Harry Kasim.

But ten good rides on Saturday suggests the red-hot hoop can add to his growing 2021 total and it may be a case of 'only' two or even three winners being a below par day.

However, competition is fierce and some of the more senior jockeys will be looking at stamping their authority on the season and none more so than Louis-Philippe Beuzelin who some had penciled in for 2021 Champion Jockey.

The Frenchman has seven rides on Saturday - most with winning chances on paper - and his head-to-head battle with Hakim could make for a good sideshow to the days racing.

In races two, three and four, Hakim looks to have the upper hand with ELLIOT NESS, CHOCANTE and OUR SECRET WEAPON all serious winning hopes, but Beuzelin will keep him honest and can make up any ground lost with HIGH LIMIT (race 7) and perhaps TANGIBLE in the last.

But again, Hakim looks to have the better rides late in the day with LADY FAST (race 8) and SUPER INVINCIBLE (race 9) but FORT MUSTANG (race 8) and CELAVI (race 9) will again keep the ‘Kelantan Kid’ on his toes.

Good jockeys make for good racing and these two gun hoops will do just that.

Enjoy!

Best Bets: (SUPER INVINCIBLE race 9, win), (SURE WILL DO race 10, win), and (BARBEQUE race 5, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 7 (Field), race 8 (1 and 8), race 9 (2 and 4), race 10 (5).
