Winning Form Best Bets

Race 2: MY ELUSIVE(1)
Race 3: BASILIUS(2)
Race 8: TRIPLE IT(9)


Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: C Storey  - Trainer: S Naidoo

NOTQUITETHEREYET has improved with every run, with her best effort being her most recent on her local debut. If building on that run, she looks hard to oppose in this moderate maiden



Race 3: ALYAASAAT(1)
Jockey: R Simons    - Trainer: M De Kock 

ALYAASAAT showed a bit of improvement over the slightly reduced trip, in much stronger company last time out. He looks much better suited to this sort of trip and on his current rating, looks set to win this comfortably.

Race 4: STEADY WAY(4)
Jockey: D Schwarz  - Trainer: M De Kock 

STEADY WAY put up a decent post maiden effort last time out and she looks set for a big run over the extra furlong here. The well bred daughter of Dynasty has plenty more scope for improvement and looks the one to beat.



Race 6: BOLD COAST(1)
Jockey: W Kennedy  - Trainer: P Peter 

BOLD COAST was an ultra-impressive winner over this trip, with the blinkers on last time out and with his early speed, he looks far better suited to this trip at this stage of his career. His conditioner is in a great run of form and a repeat of that last effort, should be good enough.



Race 1: WAIMEA(14)
Jockey: D Schwarz - Trainer: T Spies

WAIMEA put up a solid effort last time out, his first as a gelding. He finished behind a quality sort that has now won two features over the sprints and that formline appears to be the strongest in this line-up. With the expected improvement to come, he should be too good for this field.
