Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 3: THRONG(14)
Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: S Tarry
THRONG relished the step-up in distance as he produced an eye-catching second outing over a similar trip at the Vaal. He finished exactly one length adrift of the really green CAPTAIN'S COMMAND that day and the pair should have much progress to come.
Race 4: AWFAA(11)
Jockey: C Zackey- Trainer: M De Kock
AWFAA had a fair sprint debut in the strong Schippers contest on this course last month despite some issues. That formline should be closely followed with Count Kournikova in today's opening event. This daughter of Silvano would have come on with the experience and she is bred to relish this step-up in trip.
Race 8: COMME-CI-COMME-C(2)
Jockey: P Strydom - Trainer: R Magner
This is a tricky and competitive fillies and mares handicap where there could be a lack of pace. That should play right into the hands of top jockey Strydom who has a decent record on the Magner inmate COMME-CI-COMME-CA. The bay filly has a midfield barrier and she could dictate terms. The form of her last start was boosted when the runner-up Costa Da Sol beat a strong field next time out.
Race 9: SUBTLE FORCE(3)
Jockey: R Munger - Trainer: Nieuwenhuizen
The four-year old SUBTLE FORCE is realizing her earlier potential and she enjoys racing on this galloping circuit. She followed up her c & d victory with another fluent triumph over subsequent winner Emerald Bay over further at the Vaal four weeks ago. She is slightly out at the weights with a few rivals but can complete the hat-trick.
Race 7: JET AIR(7)
Jockey: K Zechner - Trainer: P Peter
JET AIR appeared in need of his Highveld debut when he faded late over this c & d a fortnight ago and he will strip fitter now. The once highly rated Visionaire gelding drops in class and can improve with blinkers fitted for the first time. BOLD COAST is the obvious form choice and he was caught late by subsequent winner Chepardo over this c & d last time out.
