Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: QUNETRA (1)
Jockey: Lerena G - Trainer: Magner R
QUNETRA'S last three starts since the 19-week break over this distance have been good. He challenged strongly all the way to the line last time, but found one too good in the form of Full Velocity. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The son of Querari gets the services of Gavin Lerena for the first time today and he may be able to get that little bit extra out of him where it matters most.
Race 4: SMOKING HOT (2)
Jockey: Kennedy W - Trainer: Dawson C
SMOKING HOT lost many lengths at the start in the SA Oaks last time. She ran a very good race in the Oaks Trial when finishing second over this distance on the Standside course. The daughter of Silvano won her only start under Warren Kennedy. She returns from a 16-week break today, which may have done her the world of good. If jumping on terms, she should take a power of beating.
Race 5: SOLDIER ON (3)
Jockey: Mxoli P - Trainer: Pettigrew S
SOLDIER ON won a good race over a mile on the Standside course last time. He lost a length at the start that day, but won going away. 4kgs claiming apprentice Philasande Mxoli retains the ride this afternoon and the pair should notch up the double.
Race 7: PUTINS PROMISE (3)
Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Gray St John
PUTINS PROMISE has finished second in his last three starts under Craig Zackey. He got going too late over six furlongs last time and will enjoy the extra 250m on offer today. From his good draw of four, he can get back to winning ways.
Race 8: PALACE ASSEMBLY (1)
Jockey: Gates J - Trainer: Azzie M G/A A
PALACE ASSEMBLY took on stronger company in his last start and was far from disgraced. The manner in which he stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. He has finished second twice from three starts on this course. From his good draw of three, he should be the one to beat
