Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 4: DOUBLEMINT(6)
Jockey: R Fourie - Trainer: J Snaith
The three-year olds could dominate the outcome of this seven furlong handicap where DOUBLEMINT appears best handicapped with just 53.5kgs on his back. The Snaith inmate has shown promise from day one and he stayed on strongly for a close 3rd on his return home earlier this month. He was pipped on the polytrack at Fairview in a minor feature prior to that and should relish this distance.
Race 5: WESTERN STORM(4)
Jockey: M Winnaar - Trainer: G Puller
The in-form WESTERN STORM is well-handicapped in this small field and he can go one better today. He had a few of today's rivals behind him in his penultimate start when he finished runner-up to What A Winner.
Race 8: LANARK(3)
Jockey: D Dillon- Trainer: A Nel
The game and improving LANARK was clearly outclassed at feature level after she set the pace from a poor draw over this c & d earlier this month. That said, she had impressive back-to-back wins prior to that and the grey filly drops heavily in class today. Admittedly, she has a much stiffer task at the weights with the consistent four-year old BRAVE MOVE (4.5kgs better off) whom she defeated by just three parts of a length earlier this campaign but the daughter of Sail From Seattle was drawn badly that day and she has certainly progressed smartly since.
Race 9: AMAROSA(1)
Jockey: B Fayd'Herbe - Trainer: J Snaith
AMAROSA is the stable elect from the Snaith yard and she is a most interesting entrant as the daughter of Silvano reverts to sprinting after an eye-catching recent performance over a mile in a competitive field. Nevertheless, this stiff six furlongs could be right up her alley and the bay filly certainly has much room for improvement.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY
Race 6: SPEEDPOINT(6)
Jockey: R Fourie - Trainer: J Ramsden
There are some classy sprinters on display in this Non-Black type five furlong contest where the Ramsden trained SPEEDPOINT should make his presence felt. The five furlong specialist expectedly got back to best when he finished strongly for a close 2nd behind a high class sort earlier this month and he has his peak showing today.
