Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: CAESURA(3)
Jockey: M Byleveld - Trainer: V Marshall
The Cape visitor CAESURA made late progress after being drawn badly on his local debut at Greyville earlier this month and he would have come on further from the effort. The Oratorio colt should have smart improvement to come and he holds strong claims from a good barrier today.
Race 2: JAILHOUSE JAZZ(4)
Jockey: R Simons - Trainer: M De Kock
The Gauteng visitor JAILHOUSE JAZZ made the expected improvement second time out as she drew off to easily beat older rivals in the maiden ranks over slightly shorter & she clearly appears progressive.
Race 7: MAGICAL WONDERLAND(9)
Jockey: A Domeyer - Trainer: C Bass-Robinson
MAGICAL WONDERLAND would have come on appreciably from her first start in this province last month and the brilliant daughter of What A Winter should show her true worth here. She was collared late by two high class male rivals in Dutch Philip and Kasimir in her penultimate feature outing on Met Day but thrashed the likes of ROSE IN BLOOM (subsequently Grade 1 place) and PRINCESS PEACH earlier this year.
Race 9: THE POET(15)
Jockey: K De Melo - Trainer: M Dixon
THE POET is seldom far off and despite the mile being slightly beyond him, the veteran campaigner acquitted himself well over the trip in recent efforts. However, this is his ideal distance and the six-year old has an excellent c & d record. He is well-handicapped and should be rewarded today.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 6: CHIMICHURI RUN(2)
Jockey: A Domeyer - Trainer: S Tarry
The Tarry machine could be at it again here and the stable's trio should be heavily involved in the finish. CHIMICHURI RUN had a swift jump into the limelight after his smart maiden victory but the son of Trippi acquitted himself impressively when running on smartly for 3rd in the SA Nursery behind his stablemate CIRILLO and his conqueror WILLIAM THE SILENT.
