Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 4: ENGAGE AND BEWAR(3)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: B Crawford 

ENGAGE AND BEWARE is progressing and he handled this extra furlong well when staying on for 2nd, just under half a length in front of CASH CALL last month and his kinder draw hands the imported bay gelding the initiative. Of course the latter has to negotiate a wide berth but top visiting jockey knows the gelding and that is key

 
Race 5: SOMMERSONNE(3)
Jockey: B Fayd'Herbe - Trainer: G Kotzen

The ultra-consistent but costly to follow SOMMERSONNE may have just needed her solid comeback run over seven furlongs in December and she will strip fitter today. The daughter of Silvano went close in her only showing over the mile and she gets the nod from her good draw. The youngsters are obvious dangers with a preference for TRANSYLVANIA who clearly relished this distance as she ran on to be 2nd best last month. She finished comfortably ahead of an improved SILVERY HEIGHTS that day and should confirm the formline with the well-bred latter who admittedly also has further scope for progress

 

TOP BET

Race 7: TRIPPI'S EXPRESS(6)
Jockey: C Orffer  - Trainer: B Crawford

TRIPPI'S EXPRESS has quickly returned to form and he stayed on strongly for 4th in stronger company despite finding traffic problems over this c & d early last month. He had CLIPPER CAPTAIN comfortably behind him that day but the Snaith inmate is better than some of his recent form and is fast reaching a competitive merit rating. 

 
Race 8: RUN FOX RUN(12)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: B Crawford 

The top weight VELVET DAWN found a strong finish for 3rd behind the smart Varsity Lover over this c & d earlier in the summer and she now has her peak effort in this lesser company. WINDOW TO AFRICA and RUN FOX RUN were both strongly fancied when the younger pairing cruised to respective debut victories over this c & d this summer and they do seem rather generously rated albeit at this early stage.

 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY

Race 6: NASTERGAL(7)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: C Bass-Robinson

The consistent NASTERGAL tired late when adopting frontrunning tactics over an extra furlong last month and this drop to the mile should suit the daughter of Duke Of Marmalade perfectly. She can finish much closer to the ultra-consistent SECRET DEPTHS despite being just 0.5kg better off for that 1.25 lengths defeat. The chestnut may enjoy a soft lead from pole position in this small field. The latter is the obvious threat though the likely lack of pace is a definite concern
