Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 4: BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTA(7)
Jockey: Keagan DE MELO - Trainer: Duncan HOWELLS
The three-year old BRIGHTEYEBUSHYTAIL appears a smart sort in the making and the Dynasty colt relished the rise in ground when landing the betting coup four weeks ago. He finished strongly over the nine furlongs that day and would have come on further since. The inmate from the Howells camp is worth following this campaign and he could prove to be better than the handicapper's early assessment.
Race 5: LIGHT ON HER TOE(4)
Jockey: Alec FORBES - Trainer: Lezeanne FORBES
There are some very smart types in this graduation contest where the weights heavily favour the well bred daughter of Gimmethegreenlight, LIGHT ON HER TOES. The chestnut filly bounced back to form when she stayed on for 3rd in a feature over this trip on Gold Cup Day and she is very capable over this c & d
Race 6: LONDON CALL(1)
Jockey: Brandon LERENA - Trainer: Mark DIXON
The top quality LONDON CALL tired late into a creditable 4th at the highest level mid last month and he can return to winning ways on his seasonal debut here. He is extremely well treated by the weights over his favourite c & d and is top jockey Brandon Lerena's solitary ride on the card. His yard is in great form at present
Race 8: BILLY SILVER(3)
Jockey: Anthony DELPECH - Trainer: Dennis BOSCH
BILLY SILVER was a 'ball of speed' when he crushed his rivals in landing the betting coup on debut over six furlongs on this course late last month. The handicapper's have granted him a massive early merit rating but the Silvano colt appears a high class sort who will have no issues with this minimum trip. Top jockey Delpech had huge praise for the three-year old after that debut victory
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 7: GEOGRAPHE BAY(6)
Jockey: Stuart RANDOLPH - Trainer: Shane HUMBY
There are some really fast sorts in this high quality five furlong handicap where an upset in the form of former Cape resident GEOGRAPHE BAY could be on the cards. The lightly raced four-year old had shown promise from day one (incidentally with today's pilot aboard) and her game last defeat of older rivals under a massive weight underlines her ability. The chestnut daughter of Horse Chestnut takes a steep rise in class today but she would have strengthened during the 22 week absence and certainly has huge scope for improvement. She can raise her game and is her yard's only entrant on the card.
