Race 3: PINCH ME (8)
Race 8: PREDATOR (5)
Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: MACARA (14)
Jockey: Dillon D - Trainer: Whitehead W
MACARA is one of the better bets on today's card. She produced a promising debut effort when finishing second over this C&D, five weeks ago. She found betting support that day which would suggest that she has been showing good work back at home. It must be noted that there have been multiple winners from her debut effort. She would have gained from the experience and should take a power of beating.
Race 2: DANDOLO (6)
Jockey: Veale S - Trainer: Rivalland A
DANDOLO is much better than his effort in the Umkhomazi Stakes suggests. He raced wide that day and never got into the race. The run that catches the eye is when finishing second in his penultimate run over 1300m on this course. He is very well-weighted in this contest and should get back to winning ways.
Race 3: PINCH ME (8)
Jockey: Hewitson L - Trainer: Kotzen N
PINCH ME ran a decent race in her last start over this distance on the polytrack. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The daughter of Gimmethegreenlight gets the services of Lyle Hewitson once again and in this type of field, she should be the one to beat.
TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 8: SPIRIT OF MY FAT (8)
Jockey: Veale S - Trainer: Drier D
SPIRIT OF MY FATE'S last two starts over six furlongs at Hollywoodbets Scottsville have been good. The manner in which he finished off those races suggests that he will enjoy the rise to the mile. The son of Master Of My Fate looks progressive and if not too green around the turn, he should be the one to beat.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY (EACH WAY)
Race 7: ANTIGONUS (11)
Jockey: Wright G - Trainer: Badenhorst/Ken
ANTIGONUS is the value bet on this afternoon's card. He should have finished a lot closer to the winner last time, but had no clear run up the straight which meant his jockey could not ride him out. The run that catches the eye is when finishing second over 1500m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville, three runs ago. With a bit of luck in running this afternoon, he may be the one to cause the upset.
