Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 4: DESERT WISDOM(4)
Jockey: L Mxothwa - Trainer: S Kotzen
DESERT WISDOM has expectedly fared well in this province with both his promising local efforts coming over this c & d. He was penalized three pounds for his game c & d victory last month but is still weighted to confirm the formline with SEATTLE SWING (1kg better off) and the former Cape resident clearly has more to offer in this province.
Race 6: KIMBERLEY STAR(7)
Jockey: G Cheyne - Trainer: A Greeff
The three-year old KIMBERLEY STAR is above-average so it wasn't surprising to see him gelded after his below-par last effort in a KZN feature earlier this campaign. That formline worked out extremely well as the ill-fated Zen Arcade produced eye-catching subsequent winning performances including his famous graded victory on the Highveld. This son of Ideal World is best treated by the weights on official ratings and he can quickly bounce back to his promising prior form. He could enjoy switching to this surface.
Race 8: MARINELLA(1)
Jockey: T Gould - Trainer: A Greeff
The three-year old MARINELLA was a game maiden winner of her only effort on this surface in her penultimate outing but she was outclassed at a high level on the grass subsequently. That said, she was returning from a short absence so will strip fitter now and she has been cleverly placed in this field by her conditioner. The daughter of Antonius Pius is best treated at the weights on official ratings and she could be the one to beat.
Race 9: SEATTLE SPELL(10)
Jockey: L Mxothwa - Trainer: Y Bremner
This is another wide open low-key handicap but the value could lie with SEATTLE SPELL who will enjoy dropping in distance. This inmate from the Bremner has shown some improved recent form and he only tired late over a mile on this course seven days ago. He jumps from a good draw.
Race 7: RIPPIT WHIPPET(12)
Jockey: M V.Rensburg - Trainer: C Spies
RIPPIT WHIPPET had an eye-catching and much improved recent effort at a similar level on the grass. The runner-up Flying Rock boosted that formline with a subsequent victory and this bay mare is import- antly back facing her own sex. Furthermore, she enjoys racing on this surface and she can cause the upset on her peak showing for her in-form stable.
