Winning Form Best Bets

Race 2: JAUNITA(3)
Race 3: THAT'S LIFE(1)
Race 6: JUST A JET(9)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: C Murray   - Trainer: M De Kock  

BOURBON BOUQUET is plagued with niggles but she has shown promise and the equipping of blinkers could do the trick for the chestnut daughter of Pathfork. Her stablemate is the newcomer NAWAASI who is by Var and top rider Delpech has secured the mount.


Race 3: THAT'S LIFE(1)
Jockey: G Lerena    - Trainer: Janse van Vuuren

THAT'S LIFE had an improved last effort albeit when 2nd best behind subsequent winner Sirtain over this distance and the 3rd placed entrant Dan's Empire had a creditable subsequent display in a decent field. This chestnut son of Var is clearly progressive and he holds strong claims in this weaker line- up.

Race 4: TANDAVA(4)
Jockey: G Wrogemann   - Trainer: G Terzi 

TANDAVA had an excellent fortnight last month when he produced two high quality five furlong displays, showing his versatility. He was just over one length adrift of the in-form veteran speedster GREASEPAINT in that last feature and despite meeting on similar weight terms, the five-year old can turn that formline around.

Race 6: ANGELIC(3)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer :P Peter

The consistent and improving three-year old ANGELIC had an eye-catching handicap debut over nine furlongs last month. She was returning from a ten week break so will strip fitter and clearly has scope for progress. The extra furlong should suit her. The four-year old END GAME has decent credentials and the Tarry inmate is well-handicapped, conceding just 1kg to the top selection.


Race 7: COSTA DA SOL(1)
Jockey: W Kennedy   - Trainer - G Van Zyl

The joint top weight COSTA DA SOL expectedly didn't shape when unfavourably weighted at conditions level last month but she had promising form in handicaps prior to that and she should bounce right back today. She won her only attempt on this course.
