Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: BIEN VENUE(1)
Jockey: S Khumalo - Trainer: S Tarry

BIEN VENUE drifted in the betting market but still produced a smart winning burst over a similar trip at the Vaal on debut earlier this month and the Tarry trained chestnut colt should have plenty more to offer.

Race 2: CHE BELLA(3)
Jockey: C Habib- Trainer: P Peter

The speedy CHE BELLA proved that she is above-average when she comfortably beat subsequent runaway winning older rival Colombina in the maiden ranks over a similar distance second time out. She meets slightly stronger rivals today but should continue to improve and can make a winning debut up the straight.


Race 3: BIG MYTH(13)
Jockey: L Hewitson   - Trainer: S Tarry

BIG MYTH was quietly fancied when she stayed on at the finish of her fair debut over slightly shorter on the Vaal Classic Track ten days ago and she would have come on appreciably from the experience. The imported daughter of Big Brown should relish the mile and this galloping circuit.

Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: S Tarry 

CAPTAIN'S CAUSEWAY should take his place in this field as he was the second reserve runner in the Tsogo Sun Sprint at Scottsville yesterday. The Tarry inmate has had a staggered career due to injury but has shown useful potential and he hinted at a form return with a pleasing last c & d effort at this level. Unfortunately, the runner-up Green Pepper flopped badly next time out which dampens the formline but this sparingly raced five-year old could still feature prominently in the finish. 


Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: G Woodruff 

SUNSHINE SILK is progressing smartly and the proven stayer displayed an impressive turn of foot when she easily beat much lesser rivals over a mile and a half recently. Admittedly, she faces considerably stronger opposition today but the Woodruff inmate clearly escaped with just a three pound penalty and she didn't disgrace herself in mixed company prior to that. She should be suited to this shorter trip on this galloping track.
