Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: SILVANO'S TIMER (10)
Jockey: De Melo K - Trainer: Kannemeyer D

SILVANO'S TIMER produced an impressive debut effort over six furlongs on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. He lost a length at the start that day, but the manner in which he finished off his race caught the eye. It must be noted that Purple Powahouse has won again since. The son of Silvano would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, he should take a power of beating.

Race 2: VENI VIDI VICCI (11)
Jockey: Cheyne G - Trainer: Crawford B

VENI VIDI VICCI produced a promising debut effort over this C&D. He was unbalanced at the 400m mark that day and should have finished closer as a result. The son of Twice Over would have come on with the run under his belt and from pole position, can improve to win this.

Jockey: Domeyer A - Trainer: Bass-Robinson

OHWHATANIGHT may have found the minimum trip on the sharp side for her last time. She raced from just off the pace and stayed on at the finish. The daughter of Trippi will enjoy the step up to the seven furlongs and it is encouraging that Aldo Domeyer steps back into the saddle. From pole position, she may be the one to side with.



Race 7: RUSSIAN ROCK (1)
Jockey: De Melo K - Trainer: Kannemeyer D

RUSSIAN ROCK ran a very good race in a feature contest over six furlongs at Kenilworth last time. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The grey son of Pomodoro will be at home over the seven furlongs and he looks to be above average. From gate three, he may be too good for the rest of this field. 



Jockey: V.Niekerk G - Trainer: Snaith J 

DOUBLE REWARD finished 6.5 lengths behind FLAME TREE last time. She is 8.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. She finished second in her only attempt over this distance and if not in need of this outing, she may be the one to cause the upset.
