Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: RESPECTABLE RULE(1)
Jockey: Sturgeon I - Trainer: Van Zyl G H

RESPECTABLE RULER clearly found the minimum trip too short for him in his comeback run recently but he will strip fitter and races over a suitable distance now. The Dynasty gelding had top quality form prior to a 16 week break and he holds a smart record on this course. He should go very close in this line-up.



Race 3: GLADIATORE(2) - TOP BET
Jockey: Brown S - Trainer: Lerena R P

GLADIATORE has come to life in his last two runs and he was only outrun late in a titanic three-way tussle over a mile on the standside track, four weeks ago. It could be worth following the progress of Beaufort Sea who campaigns in the second race as that rival finished a head in front of the top rating in their last meeting. This four-year old grey gelding finished a creditable 2nd over this c & d in his penultimate outing and should stake a serious claim in this field.


Race 4: SISTERS OF MERCY(4)
Jockey: Lerena G - Trainer: Woodruff G V

There are a few likely pacesetters in this competitive handicap and that will ensure a decent gallop, which SISTERS OF MERCY and PENNINGTON SANDS should relish. The former has always had an affinity for this tight track and she usually gets going late. She finished just over two lengths behind the latter over this c & d last time and now meets that rival on 3kgs better terms. That will certainly bring the pair closer together.


Race 7: PRINCESS TANTAN(3)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Janse van Vuur

PRINCESS TANTAN is ineffective on the standside track and can be excused her disastrous last run. She would have benefitted from the ten week break though & had promising form prior to that. The four-year old filly has a smart record on this tight circuit and she holds strong claims from a handy draw. She is the ride of in-form jockey Andrew Fortune. 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 5: PENSTOCK(6) (Each Way)
Jockey: Khumalo S - Trainer: Tarry S G

This is an intriguing low-key staying handicap, particularly as the proven stayers are either returni- ng from a break or need to improve their recent form. The four-year old chestnut PENSTOCK is an interesting entrant from the Sean Tarry yard. He took a while to shed his maiden tag but caught the eye when doing so. He was then disappointing on his handicap debut last time but takes a steep rise in ground and could still have more improvement to come.
