Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 3: HARD BALL(1)
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Johan A Janse VAN VUUREN
HARD BALL expectedly bounced back to form when equipped with blinkers in his last outing over this c & d seven days ago. The Choisir gelding was collared close to home by a newcomer that day but was in turn over two lengths clear of the next placed entrant. His frontrunning tactics could pay handsome dividends in this contest where the four-year old has huge claims of going one better.
Race 5: LAST GIRL STANDING(2)
Jockey: S'manga KHUMALO - Trainer: St John GRAY
The game and ultra-consistent mare LAST GIRL STANDING continued the form of her life when she stayed on for a solid 2nd behind an improving type over this c & d in stronger company nine days ago. She was upped two pounds for her exertions but meets an ordinary field and can go one better with her regular pilot aboard.
Race 7: RIVARINE(3)
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Mike & Adam AZZIE
The day's topliner sees a smart field of ten sprinters head to post for a pinnacle affair where the top weight is best in on official ratings. That said, the smart four-year old RIVARINE makes his seasonal debut and he is only slightly out at the weights. He didn't shape at the highest level in KZN last time out but will be a totally different proposition back on home soil. He recorded an impressive win in his penultimate start under today's jockey
Race 8: OPEN ROAD(1)
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Roy MAGNER
There could be a serious lack of pace in this low-key fillies and mares handicap where the eventual dictator could profit heavily. The in-form four-year old OPEN ROAD gets the services of top jockey Gavin Lerena who won't hesitate in dictating terms on the top weight who is c & d suited. It could pay to follow the progress of Last Girl Standing (runs in race 5) as this daughter of Count Dubois finished just three parts of a length adrift of the latter on this course nine days ago.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 4: SHANKLY GATES(10)
Jockey: Mathew THACKERAY - Trainer: Stephen MOFFATT
The chestnut mare SHANKLY GATES has improved her formline in recent efforts where she didn't finish far adrift of today's likely favourite SEPTEMBER BLOOM whom she meets on very favourable weight terms. The lightly weighted five-year old is her conditioner's only entrant on the card and she shed her maiden tag over this c & d.
