Magic Tips Best Bets


Race 1: SACRED FLAME(13)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Dennis DRIER

The well-bred SACRED FLAME showed expected improvement albeit when finishing 2nd best behind the top class subsequent winner Billy Silver over this c & d second time out. The Drier inmate would have come on during the short absence and he clearly has more to offer. He meets an ordinary line-up and should go close

Race 3: FLO JOYNER(5)
Jockey: Derryl DANIELS - Trainer: Julie DITTMER

FLO JOYNER continues to improve with experience but she was 2nd best behind a highly rated sort over this c & d four weeks ago. That said, she finished nearly three lengths ahead of the next placed entrant and still has much room for improvement. The daughter of Judpot is favourably drawn and could represent decent value in this competitive field.

Race 4: SUMMER SKY(5)
Jockey: Anthony DELPECH - Trainer: Dean KANNEMEYER

The lack of a solid gallop makes this competitive pinnacle stakes an interesting affair and the first selection SUMMER SKY should display his swift turn of foot. The Kannemeyer inmate has been below-par in his recent efforts in feature company but this is his ideal trip & he is capable without blinkers. He was a facile c & d winner of his local debut in the autumn.

Race 9: Q TIBB(2)
Jockey: Gareth WRIGHT - Willem A NEL

The Cape visitor Q TIBB was slightly below-par in yielding conditions in her last two runs but she proved her worth when going close against male rivals on good ground prior to that. She is her yard's only entrant on local debut and should be highly competitive in this ordinary field.


Race 2: LATE AUTUMN(12)
Jockey: Sean VEALE - Trainer: Dennis DRIER

The Drier stable could be at it again here and their lesser fancied charge LATE AUTUMN should make the expected improvement after a fair debut over the minimum trip on this track during the winter. The bay gelding was running on late in a competitive line-up that day and he would have strengthened during the rest. His stablemate is the extremely well-related son of Var, RIVER OF JANUARY who was also green when he made late progress on debut over five furlongs on the polytrack in July.
