Magic Tips Best Bets


Race 1: JACKO BOY(3)
Jockey: G Lerena  - Trainer: Janse van Vuuren

JACKO BOY has shown some smart recent improvement including going close behind male rivals over this trip on yielding ground three weeks ago. MINONA has definite potential and she returned to form with a cracking recent performance in her second Highveld start recently

Race 2: SEA VENTURE(1)
Jockey: W Kennedy    - Trainer: C Van Zyl

SEA VENTURE has promising form and this nine furlongs should suit her perfectly. She is her trainer's solitary entrant on the day

Race 4: ODD ROB(3)
Jockey: D Schwarz  - Trainer: GM Alexander 

The veteran gelding ODD ROB has smart form and his swift turn of foot aided him when he triumphed in his last start over this distance. He meets the 3rd placed entrant THRONG on 2.5kgs worse terms for the 2.70 lengths defeat but this track could favour his running style

Race 8: SEE YOU TYGER(8)
Jockey: S Khumalo  - Trainer: P Matchett 

The three-year old SEE YOU TYGER surprised many when she comfortably beat hard knocking handicappers OPERA and MODJADJI on her handicap debut over this trip four weeks ago and she has definite claims of completing the hat-trick. The latter pair are weighted to reduce the deficit though but the top rating obviously has more scope for improvement



Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: S Tarry

The proven stayer MIGHTY AND MAGIC made eye-catching late headway in a stronger line-up over shorter recently and that formline should be monitored by the progress of Finchatton and Come The Day in race 4 on today's card. The Tarry inmate will certainly enjoy the extra ground and should be highly competitive
