Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: CANDY GALORE(9)
Jockey: Warren KENNEDY - Trainer: Gareth VAN ZYL

CANDY GALORE was quietly fancied when she stayed on for a creditable 3rd over this trip on debut on the grass eight weeks ago. The runner-up of that event Making Waves trounced her rivals subsequently and this bay filly should make natural progress. Of course, it remains to be seen how she handles this surface

 

TOP BET FOR TODAY

Race 2: INTERNET KID(1)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Garth PULLER

INTERNET KID has solid credentials and once again the mile proved just beyond him when he was pipped on this course a fortnight ago. That said, the bay gelding fought on courageously that day and can go one better over this seven furlongs.

 
Race 6: HIGH GREEN(2)
Jockey: Lance PAGEL - Trainer: Lowan DENYSSCHEN

HIGH GREEN is above-average though he is plagued with niggles. His smart comeback run in a decent line up over a similar trip on this surface late last month proved his worth and the lightly raced four-year-old is clearly ahead of the handicapper. He will strip fitter now and drops in class

 

  

 
Race 8: GLOBAL PURSUIT(1)
Jockey:  Anton MARCUS - Trainer: Mike MILLER

The free-striding GLOBAL PURSUIT will appreciate a strong ride by today's world-class jockey and of course, the Dynasty gelding was pegged back late in his career-best attempt on this course over a similar distance in his penultimate start. He had a few of today's rivals comfortably behind him that day

 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY

Race 5: SOCRATES(2)
Jockey: Donovan DILLON - Trainer: Shane HUMBY

SOCRATES is certainly on the up and his impressive handicap debut triumph over subsequent winner Falkland over this c & d in mid-May is evidence of this. The victory came at a cost of a steep six pound penalty but the versatile son of Horse Chestnut is unbeaten on this surface and he clearly has plenty more to offer.
