Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 5: THE ELMO EFFECT(1)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Alexander G M

There isn't a natural pacesetter in this marathon event which makes things really interesting. A like- ly sedate gallop could play into the hands of the top selection THE ELMO EFFECT and the gelding is the mount of 'master tactician' Piere Strydom. The four-year old chestnut stays well and he won his last contest over 2400m with a bit in hand. He didn't fool the handicappers though as he picked up a four pound penalty but meets a similar field and can stake another serious claim. He still has room for improvement.

Race 7: DREAM GALAXY(1) - TOP BET
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Moffatt S

DREAM GALAXY was given a great ride from the front as she found extra to beat a smart field over a mile, four weeks ago. She was given a six pound penalty but is equally capable over this shorter trip and could certainly enjoy the run of the race once more. Strydom knows the daughter of Kahal extremely well and she can follow up.


Race 9: NATIONAL KEY(3)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Wiid B O

NATIONAL KEY is c & d suited and he returned to form with a good last effort over a mile at the Vaal. His yard has struck some good form in recent weeks and the National Assembly gelding should go very well in this field.



Race 10: GOLDEN MAN(1)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Maroun G J

GOLDEN MAN forms part of a strong stable coupling in this final event and he is overdue his first career win. He was 2nd best over this c & d last time but meets weaker now and can certainly get it right with Strydom in the irons from a decent draw. 

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 3: PRESCIENT(8)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Botes B D

There are a few fast types in this low-key affair and the likely blistering speed could favour those runners who finish well. PRESCIENT has improved her form in recent outings and she could certainly relish the pace, particularly with Strydom in the saddle. The daughter of Count Dubois could also benefit from blinkers over this minimum distance.
