Winning Form Best Bets


Race 1: EMIRATE GINA (8)
Race 3: ROSE VELVET (9)
Race 5: ZIMBABA (1)


Magic Tips Best Bet

Race 1: SET TO GO (3)
Jockey: Khan M – Trainer: Peter P

SET TO GO produced a promising debut effort over this C&D, two weeks ago. Despite racing green, he showed good pace and stayed on well to finish second. He would have come on with the run under his belt and with the natural improvement that is expected, he should be the one to beat.

Race 5: ZIMBABA (1)
Jockey: Lerena G – Trainer: Tarry S

ZIMBABA was given a peach of a ride to win the Grade 3 Flamboyant Stakes last time. She was settled near the rear of the field and finished her race off strongly. The classy daughter of Legislate is drawn in pole position and can notch up her fourth career victory.

Race 6: LITIGATION (7)
Jockey: Lerena G – Trainer: Tarry S

LITIGATION was not disgraced when finishing fifth in the Listed Secretariat Stakes last time. He has won once and finished third once from as many starts over this C&D. He returns to Handicap company this afternoon and should be the one to beat.



Top Bet For Today

Race 7: BOLD FORTUNE (1)
Jockey: De Gouveia D – Trainer: Pettigrew S

BOLD FORTUNE was given a peach of a ride when winning the Grade 2 Ipi Tombe Challenge last time. It must be noted that the horse that finished fourth that day has come out and won since. She has won twice and finished second once from four starts on this course. Diego De Gouveia knows her well and the combination should find themselves in the winner’s enclosure once again.


Value Bet For Today

Race 4: LULU’S BOY (2)
Jockey: Schwarz D – Trainer: Roux J

LULU’S BOY followed up his maiden win with a decent fourth-place finish over 1200m. He moved up like a winner, but was outrun late. He drops back to the 1000m and gets the blinkers fitted, which should sharpen him up. Denis Schwarz retains the ride and the combination may find themselves in the winner’s enclosure
