Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: GOOD BUDDY(1)
Jockey: G V.Niekerk   - Trainer: D Kannemeyer 

The grey gelding GOOD BUDDY is better than his last try on the polytrack and of course he produced two decent efforts on this track prior to that. He is the only winner in this juvenile contest and can make amends


Race 2: HOLY FLAME(1)
Jockey: A Marcus - Trainer: D Howells

HOLY FLAME was rightly rested for 17 weeks after her disappointing last run on her polytrack debut and she should bounce swiftly back today. The lightly raced bay filly showed promise prior to that.

Jockey: R Fourie   - Trainer: D Bosch

The above-average three-year old BILLY SILVER wasn't disgraced in his comeback run in open company seven days ago and he will be fitter now. The bay colt seems best suited to racing up the straight for now and of course he thrashed his rivals in his only two efforts on this track. The son of Silvano should quickly bounce back to best here.

Race 8: RIO DE LA PLATA(8)
Jockey: C Zackey  - Trainer: G Puller

RIO DE LA PLATA was given a brilliant ride when he got up to land the gamble over a similar trip at a lesser level recently. He was expectedly given the minimum two pound penalty but there was certainly merit in that performance as the five-year old endured a bump at the off and he could still be well handicapped today. The son of Windrush won't be phased by a likely sedate gallop due to the absence of a natural frontrunner and as his run on 07/06 shows, he is clearly capable with front-running tactics.


Jockey: M Byleveld   - Trainer: C Bass-Robinson

PRESS MY BUTTON is coming to hand and blinkers could make a significant difference to the improving daughter of Gimmethegreenlight. She has a decent draw and was making steady progress in a competitive line-up recently.
