Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: Hewitson L - Trainer: Tarry S G

SUCCESSFUL RULER produced a promising debut effort over this C&D. The manner in which he stayed on at the finish that day was encouraging. The son of Pomodoro would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, he can win in this type of field.

Race 2: KISSING BOOTH (11)
Jockey: Hewitson L - Trainer: Tarry S 

KISSING BOOTH produced a promising debut effort over 1160m at Turffontein, four weeks ago. She understandably raced green, but showed good pace and stayed on at the business end. The daughter of Captain Al would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she can find herself in the winner's enclosure. 

Jockey: Yeni M - Trainer: Matchett P

VALYRIAN KING was an easy winner of his last start over this C&D. He was reported to be coughing that day which makes the victory that much more encouraging. He is having his peak run this afternoon and should notch up his third career victory.




Race 4: LILY BLUE (3)
Jockey: Yeni M - Trainer: Matchett P

LILY BLUE has been impressive in her last two wins over 1800m on this course. She took the lead at the 400m mark last time and fought hard all the way to the line. The daughter of Black Minnaloushe won her only attempt over this distance. The 4yo filly should notch up her 12th career victory today. 



Jockey: Maujean C - Trainer: Botes B

INTO THE FUTURE makes his stable debut for the Barend Botes yard. He is much better than his last start at Hollywoodbets Greyville suggests. The son of Visionaire has won once, finished second once and third once from six starts over this distance. He continues to drop in the ratings and takes a drop in class today. If settled into his new surroundings, he can get back to winning ways
