Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: DAME COMMANDER(4)
Jockey: Anthony DELPECH - Trainer: Dennis DRIER
The speedy DAME COMMANDER made smart improvement when outrun late into 2nd behind subsequent feature placed Mind Your Business over this c & d second time out. Her yard has hit a purple patch since and this daughter of Western Winter should continue to progress
Race 4: DIAMONDS FOREVER(9)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Paul GADSBY
The bay filly DIAMONDS FOREVER has found her best form in recent efforts and she has strong claims in this very weak contest. She was collared late by the improving Tweed Valley (runner-up twice since) over this c & d last time out and can go one better today. The daughter of Var is her yard's only entrant on the day.
Race 5: GOT YOUR BACK(1)
Jockey: Anthony DELPECH - Trainer: Dennis BOSCH
GOT YOUR BACK has unfortunately drawn wide but she is improving nicely with each outing and she stayed on for a creditable 3rd in a decent line-up over this trip on the standside course four weeks ago. Her top jockey retains the ride on the bay filly who is her yard's only entrant on the day and she should still be heavily involved in the finish.
Race 8: LUCKY VEIL(6)
Jockey: Stuart RANDOLPH - Trainer: Ivan & Darryl MOORE
LUCKY VEIL is improving smartly with each outing and he finished strongly for a close 3rd in a competitive field over six furlongs four weeks ago. The runner-up Draughlin could only manage 3rd next time out but this son of Muhtafal has given every indication that he will relish today's extra furlong and should have much more to offer. His good draw is a major advantage on his first venture around the turn and he should go very close. The chestnut colt is his yard's only entrant on the day.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 6: HEAD HONCHO(3)
Jockey: Gareth WRIGHT - Trainer: Willem A NEL
HEAD HONCHO is a lightly raced four-year old colt who is still developing his merit rating and he has more to offer. He worked hard for victory after his jockey lost his whip over this trip on the polytrack last time but showed all of his determination and probably escaped with just a three pound penalty. The son of Querari produced a classy penultimate performance at this venue despite racing wide and is certainly worth following
