Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 2: FULL OF ATTITUDE(11)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Joe SOMA
FULL OF ATTITUDE finished well in both his six furlong sprints on the tight inside circuit but should love tonight's longer run-in, coupled with the extra furlong. He is unfortunately drawn badly but has a strong finishing burst & top jockey Marcus climbs aboard.
Race 4: EXQUISITE TOUCH(1)
Jockey: S'manga KHUMALO - Trainer: Sean TARRY
EXQUISITE TOUCH is a classy sprinter with issues but she showed her quality when narrowly beating male rival son her seasonal debut at the Vaal three weeks ago. She has been defeated just once from five efforts over this minimum distance and the Tarry inmate should be followed with confidence this campaign. She will be fitter and is the one to beat at the weights on official ratings. The daughter of Var can make amends for her flop in this event in soft conditions one year ago.
Race 5: SECRET STAR(2)
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Stuart PETTIGREW
SECRET STAR is a quality sort who was always going to find it tough from a poor draw in a feature last time. She tired after overracing on the soft ground that day but those tactics could prove effective in this small field, particularly with brilliant regular pilot Strydom back in the saddle.
Race 7: STARRETT CITY(5)
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Geoff WOODRUFF
STARRETT CITY is often thereabouts and he produced the run of his career when he was outrun late into a most creditable 3rd in a feature at the Vaal six weeks ago. That formline has worked out well and the bay gelding is well-handicapped in tonight's line-up. He holds a smart c & d record and runs well for top jockey Gavin Lerena.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY
Race 1: WRITTEN(1)
Jockey: Lyle HEWITSON - Trainer: Sean TARRY
The well-related WRITTEN showed fair ability before suffering a major setback and the now four-year old filly has her belated seasonal debut. She returns from a lengthy absence but her conditioner has mastered the art of bringing his chargers back fit and well and she can upset tonight. The newcomers may pose the biggest threat to the Tarry inmate and the betting market should be closely monitored with regards to SUNSHINE SILK and LA LINEA.
