Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: LAZER STAR(5) - TOP BET
Jockey: Weichong MARWING - Trainer: Ormond FERRARIS

LAZER STAR got her career back to winning ways with an impressive last victory over the minimum trip, nine weeks ago. The top class daughter of Toreador did however find the trip a touch on the sharp side but her talent carried her through. She will prefer today's extra distance and has her peak run. Her 5 victories from 7 outings underlines her true potential and the Ormond Ferraris inmate is extremely well in at the weights in this conditions plate. She should go very close.

Race 5: FELIX M(1)
Jockey: Ian STURGEON - Trainer: Alec LAIRD

FELIX M is improving with each run and he produced cracking efforts over this distance in his last two outings. He fought on doggedly after setting the pace over this c & d under Sturgeon last time and was in turn just over two lengths ahead of the long-time maiden RED SAVAGE. This son of Mambo In Seattle meets the latter on identical weight terms and has lots more scope for improvement. He should have the latter's measure and go close in this line-up.

Race 6: INFINITY KNOT(3)
Jockey: Weichong MARWING - Trainer: Weiho MARWING

INFINITY KNOT made a bright start to life for her new yard and she can build on that progress. The former KZN inmate competed in a lowly workrider's event but she stayed on eye-catchingly for 2nd after setting the pace over a mile on her Gauteng debut on this track, two weeks ago. Her pedigree suggests that she will relish the rise in distance and she could have lots more to offer. The engaging of Weichong Marwing is very encouraging.

Race 9: LEMONADE RIVER(5)
Jockey: Randall SIMONS - Trainer: Paul MATCHETT

This is a very competitive fillies and mares handicap to end of the day's proceedings. LEMONADE RIVER has blossomed since returning from a layoff and arriving on the Highveld. She built on her promising local debut, albeit she just lasted for victory over a mile on this track, two weeks ago. The daughter of Greys Inn takes on stronger now but she will be cherry-ripe and is even better over this slightly shorter trip. She may have escaped with just a three pound penalty.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 8: ARKANSAS(13) (Each Way)
Jockey: Francois HERHOLDT - Trainer: Ormond FERRARIS

ARKANSAS has clearly reached a competitive mark in his merit rating as he returned to form with a solid last performance over a mile on this track. He was outrun late into a close 4th after setting the pace and should be effective over this shorter trip. The bay gelding has a lower mass now and he merits respect from a decent draw.
