Race 6: HAWWAAM(1)


Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: SEA AIR(10)
Jockey: Lyle HEWITSON - Trainer: Sean TARRY

The Tarry inmate SEA AIR caught the eye when he ran on smartly for 2nd behind his speedy stablemate Mythical Bolt on debut just over one month ago and he would have come on appreciably from the experience. He finished just under two lengths ahead of the sparingly raced POTJIE and the son of Captain Al will relish this slight rise in distance.

Jockey: Warren KENNEDY Trainer: Chesney VAN ZYL

The former KZN visitor MARCHINGONTOGETHER is highly rated and his solid recent performances in open company on unfavourable terms has shown exactly why. He is by some margin best weighted in this listed contest on Highveld debut where he will relish racing on this galloping circuit and the Pathfork colt is certainly worth following with keen interest.

Jockey: Karl ZECHNER - Trainer: St John GRAY

RONNIE'S CANDY is a high-quality sort who has blossomed this campaign and she produced a brilliant last feature effort at a slightly higher level despite racing wide over the mile on this track. She finished comfortably ahead of former Grade 1 winner RETURN FLIGHT that day and is best weighted in this event.

Race 6: HAWWAAM(1)
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Mike DE KOCK

The unbeaten HAWWAAM was flawless in his thrashing of subsequent winning KZN visitor Thanksgiving at Grade 2 level over a mile on this course in just his second career outing last time and the half-brother to the brilliant Rainbow Bridge appears a top prospect in the making. He is unsurprisingly best weighted in this company and should be all the rage in the betting market.



Race 9: OSSETRA(1) 
Jockey: Raymond DANIELSON - Trainer: Alec LAIRD

An extremely tricky low-key handicap for fillies & mares over ten furlongs where the KISSMEINMYDREAMS formline is worth following. This bay mare was given a brilliant ride from the front as she held off the fast-finishing MATTINA whom she now meets on 3kgs better terms. That said, the extra furlong should suit the latter who now has the services of top jockey Gavin Lerena. OSSETRA was comfortably beaten by the above pairing in that event last time but the top weight raced wide that day and should be an entirely different proposition from pole position this time around. She has no issue with this extra furlong.
