Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: HIT THE GREEN(2)
Jockey: T APPIE   - Trainer: M DE KOCK

HIT THE GREEN began his career with much promise on this course before he may have been outclassed in a Grade 1 in early May. He should return to form at this lesser level and has definite claims from his good draw. That isn't a luxury for impressive debut victor ROBBERG EXPRESS who landed the betting coup in fine fashion at the Vaal five weeks ago.

Jockey: M YENI - Trainer: R SAGE

The costly to follow DUNAS DOURADAS has some improved recent form and she should stake a serious claim in this weak line-up. OCEANS PRIDE is another struggling maiden but her poor draw cost her in her disappointing last run but her top rider retains the mount. Of course the daughter of Curved Ball stayed on for a decent 4th over further in her penultimate run

Race 8: ELANGENI(1)
Jockey: R DANIELSON  - Trainer: R MAGNER

ELANGENI has kept her form in recent starts and is best drawn as she returns to racing around the turn today. She meets a fair field and should give a very good account of herself. The lightly raced juvenile LONG POND has shown decent potential in her three runs and though she isn't favourably weighted, she has obvious scope for improvement and is suited to this tight circuit. The daughter of Marchfield seemed to just be in need of her comeback run after a ten week absence and she will strip much fitter now




Race 9: TOP RANK(3)

TOP RANK is above-average and the Mogok colt's smart post maiden effort in a strong graduation field second time out is evidence of that. The Woodruff inmate stayed on well for 4th over this c & d in his comeback from a ten week layoff that day and he will strip much fitter now. Of course he does seem to be ahead of the handicapper at this early stage and can take full advantage on his handicap debut here.



Race 2: CLOUD BREAK(2)
Jockey: K DE MELO - Trainer: C VAN ZYL

CLOUD BREAK was below-par in her first venture around the bend but the useful bay filly would have gained from the experience and she can return to form over today's shorter trip. She is her yard's only runner on the card.
