Winning Form Best Bets

Race 3: COTOPAXI (7)
Race 4: HERTOG (1)
Race 8: ALL OF ME (3)


Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: M de Kock

PEACEONTHEROCKS stayed on well in her last outing over the c&d despite hanging in the closing stages. That was her best finishing position of her first five outings and she will be hoping to go one better this afternoon. 

Race 4: DUAL AT DAWN (7)
Jockey: K Matsunyane - Trainer: S Tarry

The powerful Sean Tarry yard looks to have a strong hand in this race and the stable could complete the exacta here. Top choice goes to DUAL AT DAWN who finished strongly to win second time out over 1400M. Kabelo Matsunyane who has been in the saddle on both occasions retains the ride. 

Race 5: BATTLE CREEK (1)
Jockey: C Maujean - Trainer: D Sham

BATTLE CREEK has consistent formlines to his name. He is a speedy sort who was collared late in his last start over six furlongs. He may prove difficult to reel in over the latter part of this contest over the slightly shorter trip. 



Race 6: JET START: (2)
Jockey: W Kennedy - Trainer: P Peter

JET START has finished strongly to win her last two starts over this distance and will be looking to complete the hat-trick here. Four of her six wins so far have been recorded over this trip and Warren Kennedy retains the ride. 



Race 7: OUR MAN IN HAVANA (13)
Jockey: L Ferraris - Trainer: S Tarry

OUR MAN IN HAVANA returns from a 10-week rest, but he won his last start over the c&d and the engaging of Gavin Lerena would suggest that the connections are expecting a big run from the colt.
