Jack Milner: The meeting on the Polytrack at Greyville on Monday is likely to produce a few challenges for bettors.

The eight-race card is made up of three Maiden Plates and five low-level handicaps, three of them exclusively for apprentices.

But the good news is that most fields are relatively small and that should give punters the opportunity to load many of the legs of the exotics.

The runner who stands out as the banker in all bets is East Coast Star, who lines up in Race 3, a Maiden Plate for fillies and mares over 1400m.

The three-year-old daughter of Visionaire does not feature in the best-weighted column because a horse needs to have raced three times to get an official merit rating and this filly has only run twice.

However, she does look to have the most room for improvement and could turn out to be quite a talent. She is trained by Peter Muscutt, who recently took out his own licence after many years of running Brett Crawford’s KwaZulu-Natal yard.
