Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: ICARUS FLIGHT(2)
Jockey: J Penny - Trainer: C Spies
ICARUS FLIGHT could have been given a better ride but still caught the eye on his local debut on the grass earlier this month and today's extra furlong should suit him well. The lightly raced bay colt is plagued with issues so the switch to this forgiving surface could be to his liking.
Race 2: TREES OF GREEN(6)
Jockey: R Munger- Trainer: Laing Tara
TREES OF GREEN is versatile and brings solid form into this contest. He was narrowly defeated over the mile recently and was in turn just over two lengths clear of the next placed entrant Varistar. The six year old entire should easily cope with today's stronger rivals and he can go one better from the best draw.
Race 3: SEARCHING(2)
Jockey: G Cheyne - Trainer: A Greeff
SEARCHING is progressing smartly and she was gaining at the finish when runner-up over shorter on this course late last month. The equipping of blinkers should aid the daughter of Jay Peg who will enjoy the extra furlong.
Race 8: JOKING DICE(9)
Jockey: C Zackey- Trainer: C Spies
JOKING DICE runs well for this in-form jockey and the pair improved in their creditable last effort behind male rivals over a similar trip on this course. The runner-up Just Too Early boosted that form when winning twice subsequently and this well-drawn daughter of Crusade can stake a huge claim after a three pound dock in her merit rating.
Race 5: TUBULAR BELL(2)
Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: Y Bremner
This is an intriguing novice contest where the merit ratings may not necessarily be the best guide but the three-year olds should still dominate the outcome. TUBULAR BELL loved racing on this surface as he produced a powerful burst to narrowly win his local debut over a mile four weeks ago. He had some decent form entrants behind him and that effort indicated that the son of Oratorio will relish this step-up in distance. The bay gelding could certainly be better than his current assessment, particularly on this surface.
