Winning Form Best Bets

Race 1: GRAND CHRISTINE(4)
Race 2: AUTUMN ENCORE(9)
Race 5: WIMOWEH(5)
Race 7: BLACK PEPPER(4)


Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 5: WIMOWEH(5)
Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Miller W G C

The fairer sex could dominate the outcome of this staying non-black affair. WIMOWEH has excelled in these local conditions and boasts three wins from her last four outings. She slammed a highly rated sort over nine furlongs four weeks ago and her pedigree suggests that she will have no issues with this extra two furlongs. The daughter of Lion Tamer shoulders a light mass of 53kgs and she should handle the rise in class.


Race 6: CAPRICORN RIDGE(1) - TOP BET
Jockey: Simons R - Trainer: De Kock M F

The Mike de Kock yard raids Kimberley with a solitary charge in the form of CAPRICORN RIDGE. The Tiger Ridge gelding makes his first trip to the Northern Cape but he is effective on the sand as he proved with a brilliant last display over six furlongs on the Highveld. The five-year old gelding produced a powerful late burst to easily win a pinnacle event that day and he now has his third run after the rest. He is proven up to nine furlongs and should take a power of beating, if handling this surface. His wide draw may work in his favour as his jockey will keep him out of the kickback.

Race 7: VELVET VERONA(3)
Jockey: Naude F - Trainer: Spies C

There are some smart sprinters in this competitive non-black contest and a thrilling finish is expect- ed. VELVET VERONA is a speedy sort with plenty of class but he has his quirks. He bounced back to form with a gutsy last victory on the Vaal sand and he won his only appearance on this surface. The bay gelding is well handicapped and should be involved in the finish.


Race 9: CLOUD RUNNER(7)
Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Prinsloo M N

The Tienie Prinsloo yard holds a strong hand in this final event and CLOUD RUNNER and IT'S MAGIC can fight things out. The former had a brief spell in Gauteng when outclassed in two efforts but she has returned home now and rejoined the in-form yard. The daughter of Stronghold has been solid in this province and her c & d record proves it. She made late headway in her comeback performance behind the latter over this c & d two weeks ago but is now 2kgs to the good. She would have come on further from the effort and can definitely finish closer to her conqueror. 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 3: ALBERTVILLE(9)
Jockey: Zackey C - Trainer: Prinsloo M N

The speedy ALBERTVILLE has drawn on the paint and he could produce an upset, if finding his best form. He tired late over the minimum trip last time but prefers racing around the turn and represents a red- hot stable. His only career win came over this c & d. The lightly raced three-year old TRIP TO PARADISE won a smart c & d maiden event on his local debut and would have strengthened during his nine week absence.
