Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: AMAJORY(1)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: P Peter
The speedy AMAJORY was 'stuck in the mud' late on over an extra furlong in a highly competitive field recently but she will be an entirely different proposition on good ground. The inmate from the Paul Peter yard had smart prior form and she is the clear first pick of the raced runners. This minimum trip will suit her perfectly.
Race 4: ANGELIC(3)
Jockey: G Lerena- Trainer: P Peter
ANGELIC has continued her promising form and she stayed on for 3rd over a mile at Turffontein last Saturday. The bay filly still has much room for improvement and she gives every impression that she could enjoy a test of stamina. Top jockey Gavin Lerena takes the ride on the daughter of Gitano Hernando.
Race 5: AMERICAN INDIAN(8)
Jockey: M Yeni - Trainer: O Ferraris
AMERICAN INDIAN made full use of his lowered merit rating as he stayed on for 3rd in similar company over a mile on this course four weeks ago. The bay colt escaped without a penalty for his exertions and he should easily handle this extra furlong. He receives some handy weight from his rivals and is a major contender with top jockey Yeni retaining the ride.
Race 8: CATHEDRAL COUNTY(3)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: Janse van Vuuren
CATHEDRAL COUNTY is a smart and improving type who bounced back to best with an expected c & d victory last time out. He was raised four pounds for his exertions but still has much more to offer and he should handle today's rise in class. The bay gelding is favourably drawn. The top weight is the bay mare LADY STARLETT who continued her good form as she ran on eye-catchingly for 3rd in a recent Grade 3 contest at Turffontein.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 6: SPRING POETRY(7)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: C Dawson
SPRING POETRY has reached a competitive merit rating in recent showings and she caught the eye when finishing strongly for a close 3rd over a mile lately despite being unfavourably drawn up the straight. The daughter of Marchfield should love the ten furlongs on her pedigree and she can turn the form around with CURBSTONE SHUFFLE.
