Race 3: CLOUD BREAK(2)
Race 4: BOLD EAGLE(1)
Race 6: LEGAL EAGLE(1)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: R Simons  - Trainer: Janse van Vuuren 

The red-hot Johan Janse van Vuuren stable holds a strong hand in this opening contest with the two representatives of the fairer sex. The lightly raced PEPPERMINT TEA has shown smart ability and she was pipped by her stable companion on yielding ground over this c & d last month.

Race 4: BOLD EAGLE(1)
Jockey: A Delpech  - Trainer: G Van Zyl 

The unbeaten BOLD EAGLE has plenty going for him in his hat-trick attempt as he beat most of today's rivals in a recent feature over slightly shorter on yielding ground. The 3rd placed entrant HEAVENLY RISK skated clear of his maiden rivals next time out and this well-related son of Var still has good scope.


Race 6: LEGAL EAGLE(1)
Jockey: A Marcus  - Trainer: S Tarry

The brilliant miler LEGAL EAGLE defends his title in today's contest after another fairly successful raid on the Cape. He was probably moved on too soon when collared late in the Met over ten furlongs last time but that effort clearly indicated that his worrying penultimate start over this trip was firmly behind him. The Tarry inmate should have the measure of his seven rivals today.

Race 11: LIBERADO(7)
Jockey: C Maujean  - Trainer: G Alexander

The betting market may indicate otherwise but this mile contest should develop into a boat-race between LIBERADO and the expensive purchase SHADOW MAN, with a slight preference for the former, courtesy of him beating TOMMY THE BUILDER by a half a length more than the latter over this c & d.


Jockey: W Kennedy    - Trainer: T Zackey 

It could pay to follow the progress of Aurelia Cotta (runs in Grade 1 in prior event) as the first selection in this listed contest, PENNINGTON SANDS, finished a length and a half ahead of that rival over this c & d recently. Of course the runner-up of that outing, Fort Ember boosted the formline when going down narrowly in a subsequent Grade 2 event. This veteran mare is well-handicapped with just 52kgs on her back.
