Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: SARTORIUS(2)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Prinsloo M N

SARTORIUS didn't have things go his way last time but he only weakened late when perhaps finding the trip too far for him. He has some work to do with STEADY AS A ROCK (2kgs worse off) who finished runner-up in that event but the drop in distance could steer things in his favour and Andrew Fortune takes the ride. The Fort Wood gelding won his only c & d effort.


Race 4: ROCKET FALLS(2) - TOP BET
Jockey: Herholdt F - Trainer: Von Willingh S

ROCKET FALLS caught the eye with a smart last sprint over six furlongs nine days ago and he now has his third run after the layoff. The Windrush gelding is having just his sixth career outing and he could enjoy the rise in distance. The former Cape resident has good scope for further progress in this province.



Race 5: FIRST ANSWER(3)
Jockey: Yeni M - Trainer: Lensley C

FIRST ANSWER is holding his form well and he wasn't disgraced in stronger company over seven furlongs, nine days ago. His pedigree suggests that he should handle this extra furlong and he will be better suited to this class of opposition. Muzi Yeni is unbeaten aboard the gelding in this province.


Race 6: ETHEMBA(4)
Jockey: Wrogemann G - Trainer: Miller S

ETHEMBA races well fresh and she was thereabouts prior to her 13 week absence. She tired late in stronger company over six furlongs last time and should be extremely competitive in this low-key affair. The speedy MATADORAS EL TOROS overcame a wide draw and showed her rivals a clean pair of heels when skating clear to an easy victory over six furlongs, three weeks ago. That earned her a huge penalty but she doesn't meet much stronger and should be effective over this minimum distance.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 7: THE QUEEN(1)
Jockey: Yeni M - Trainer: Lensley C

THE QUEEN probably took on too much in a feature last time but she had decent form before that, including a close 4th behind Olympic Owen over this c & d at pinnacle level in her penultimate run. She was just over half a length adrift of SECRET DELIGHT that day but is now 1.5kgs better off with that rival and should be very competitive, despite her big mass. She has a smart turn of foot so a likely strong pace will suit her.
