Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: SCHILLACI(1) - TOP BET
Jockey: Sturgeon I - Trainer: Van Zyl G H

SCHILLACI showed promise during the autumn and would have benefitted from his 17 week absence. He was caught late over a mile on the standside course last time and has experience on this shorter run-in. His trainer brings his runners back fit and ready and the chestnut gelding should go very close.



Race 3: BAJAN FANTASY(6)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Alexander G M

There are some smart sorts on display in this maiden event and an exciting finish is on the cards. Once again, the Fortune/Alexander partnership could come to the fore and the pair are represented by BAJAN FANTASY who has shown promise in both her attempts. She finished well for 3rd on her sprint debut from a wide draw on this track and followed that up with another solid performance over this c & d, second time out. The daughter of Mullins Bay was just over half a length adrift of TRULY EVELYN that day but now gets equipped with blinkers and has plenty more scope for improvement.

Race 6: MARMALADY(1)
Jockey: Marwing Weicho - Trainer: Ferraris O A

This is a most intriguing stayers handicap as the two heavyweights MARMALADY and LUCKY GAMBLER concede chunks of weight to their opposition. The former is developing into a quality stayer and she picked up the maximum eight pound penalty for her super-impressive last victory over 2450m in a decent field. She shoulders a huge 62kgs today but is clearly the class act and she likes this track. The imported mare could still take all the beating.

Race 8: GALLILEE(1)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Azzie M G

This is an interesting contest featuring some above-average fillies and mares. The joint top weight GALLILEE may have some issues but she has produced some smart displays to date and promises plenty more. She was the victim of a great tactical ride when DREAM GALAXY accounted for her over a mile last time but the daughter of Silvano may have still just needed the run and clearly has more scope for progress. She is only slightly worse off at the weights with the latter but could prefer racing on this tighter track. 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 7: DELAMERE(5)
Jockey: Sturgeon I - Trainer: Van Zyl G H

DELAMERE can be excused his poor last two runs on the sand. He is a different proposition on the grass and showed that with a smart comeback run over a mile behind a dual subsequent winner, three starts ago. He has experience on this track and should be competitive in an open event.
