Magic Tips Best Bets
Jockey: Sherman BROWN - Trainer: Ormond FERRARIS
SNOWDON gets an easy pipe-opener to possibly his last campaign of his career. The son of Western Winter enjoyed another decent season but unfortunately flopped in his last start at Scottsville. Neve- rtheless, he is a top class sprinter and has everything in his favour today. He has a good c & d record and should take a power of beating.
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Johan Janse v/Vuuren
There are a few speedy types here and the grey gelding MALACHITE should love that. He has shown some promising form and usually stays on nicely in his races. He is suited to an extra furlong but races fresh after a well deserved ten week break. The son of Malhub is favourably drawn and should take some beating with Strydom in the irons.
Jockey: Raymond DANIELSON - Trainer: Clinton BINDA
This is a very moderate field but AUGUSTA PINES represents an in-form stable and produced his career best performance last time out. He raced handy over seven furlongs on this course and despite hanging, he stayed on for third, beaten just over two lengths. The runner-up gave the form a boost when winning his next start easily and this son of Nysaean should have more to come. His good draw will help his cause but the major worry is his ability to see out the extra furlong.
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Romeo FRANCIS
This is a low-key fillies and mares handicap and that often spells trouble. However, PERFECT WINTER and Strydom could dispell that notion today. The Romeo Francis trained daughter of Manshood has done well in her last two starts and is very effective on this course. She got going too late when fifth over 1450m on the inside track, nine days ago but won a nice race over this c & d in her penultimate outing. She jumps from a decent draw and merits healthy respect.
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Alec LAIRD
This event is more competitive than the betting market might suggest. DISTINCTLY has come right back to his best in his last two starts over this trip and is sure to be all the rage. However, upon closer inspection, POCKET FILLER could represent the value in this contest. Admittedly, he has let the side down on many occasions but he is definitely better over this trip than the ten furlongs of his last start. He got going too late when close-up behind Shoe Horn over this trip in his penultimate outing. He was just under two lengths behind DISTINCTLY that day but is now 2kgs better off and this track suits him. The latter though still deserves plenty of respect.
