Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Mike DE KOCK

CAPTAIN'S SONG found inspired betting support when she produced a highly promising debut over the minimum trip at Turffontein, four weeks ago. She stayed on strongly for 3rd, beaten 1.50 lengths at the line that day and should have lots of natural improvement to come. The extra furlong will play right into the hands of the expensive R2.4 million purchase and she is a major contender with Gavin Lerena in the irons.

Jockey: Muzi YENI - Trainer: Gavin VAN ZYL

There are some decent maidens on display in this contest and an exciting finish is on the cards. The son of Dynasty, RESPECTABLE RULER is above-average and he produced two excellent runs from wide draws on Turffontein's inside track prior to a 19 week break. He was gelded in the interim and his trainer obviously expects more from him. His conditioner usually brings them back fit and well and he should go close.

Jockey: Donavan MANSOUR - Trainer: Lucky HOUDALAKIS

FORTITUDE has held her form against stronger in recent outings and she loves racing on this course. She ran on well for a very good 4th in strong company over a mile nine days ago and now drops heavily in class. The five-year old mare deservedly shoulders top weight but she is still a huge contender and will go close in this line-up.

Race 8: BERNADINE(3)
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Sean TARRY

BERNADINE has a smart c & d record and sprinting seems to be her forte'. She drew away from her ordinary rivals to easily win her last start over this c & d, three weeks ago and has already shown that she is capable at this higher level. It came as no surprise that she was upped eight pounds in her rating but there is plenty more to come from the daughter of Bernadini and she can follow up.


Race 4: POLAR SECRET(3) (Each Way)
Jockey: Chase MAUJEAN - Trainer: Craig MAYHEW

POLAR SECRET was coming to hand before her below-par last run on the inside track at Turffontein. She produced her career best performance over this c & d in her penultimate outing and holds many rivals safe on that run. She must be strongly considered in an open affair.
