Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: FORT VIVA(1)
Jockey: MJ BYLEVELD - Trainer: Vaughan MARSHALL
Just seven maiden entrants head to post for this marathon contest in which the Cape raider FORT VIVA should be a warm favourite. The son of Elusive Fort is a proven stayer and he found his best form when tiring late into 4th over this trip at Durbanville last time after adopting front running tactics. He could enjoy a soft lead here and has obvious claims if handling the right hand turn.
Race 2: DOUBLEMINT(3)
Jockey: Richard FOURIE - Trainer: Justin SNAITH
The Cape raider DOUBLEMINT takes a steep rise in class on his local debut but his maiden victory was super-impressive and he could have a bright future. The lightly raced chestnut son of Twice Over was wide throughout that six furlong contest at Durbanville but he still found extra to narrowly beat the short-priced subsequent winner and highly rated Talk Of The Town. The 3rd placed finisher Tsitsikamma Dance further enhanced that form with his subsequent victory and this inmate from the Snaith yard should love the mile.
Race 5: MEGA SCENE(16)
Jockey: Greg CHEYNE - Trainer: Alan GREEFF
The Espressivo formline on 27/10 is worth following in this big field and MEGA SCENE had a fair debut in that five furlong event on the polytrack. Trainer Greeff's daughter of Sail From Seattle attracted longshot market support that day and she made late progress after exiting the gates slowly. She was beaten just over two lengths into 7th and would have come on appreciably from the experience. She has a favourable draw.
Race 6: CAPTAIN MAROONED(1)
Jockey: Callan MURRAY - Trainer: Tara LAING
CAPTAIN MAROONED has his issues but he has been flawless in both his impressive winning local starts and he could still be ahead of the handicapper despite a recent maximum eight pound hike. The well bred son of Captain Al should handle this rise in class and he can complete the hat-trick on his seasonal debut. BAAHIR is seldom far off and is undoubtedly best over this minimum distance. He is proven in this class and he receives a valuable 1.5kgs which makes him a lively threat.
Race 7: CAPTAINOFMYHEART(8)
Jockey: Tejash JUGJALL - Trainer: Justin SNAITH
This is another extremely competitive handicap blessed with much speed which will suit the first selection CAPTAINOFMYHEART. This veteran campaigner had an eye-catching victorious local debut when he quickened smartly to beat similar rivals on the polytrack going away. The son of Captain Al received a five pound penalty for his troubles but he will again be ridden by his 4kgs claiming apprentice and he is equally effective on the grass. He is favourably drawn.
