Race 6: WISHFUL HEART(2)
Race 8: BIG SHOT(2)


Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: SHE'S A FLIRT(1)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Verdonese E

SHE'S A FLIRT is in the form of her life and she handled this surface extremely well when pipped over the c & d, three weeks ago. She will find things slightly more difficult from an awkward draw today but Fortune retains the ride and she should go close.



Race 5: ROVING JET(1)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Azzie M G

ROVING JET had one shocking attempt on this track but was rested for three months immediately after that, suggesting that all was not well with the gelding. He has benefitted from the break and bounced back to his best form when caught late over this trip on the grass, four weeks ago. The Jet Master gelding should be very competitive with similar frontrunning tactics today and he has cracked another good draw.


Race 6: WISHFUL HEART(2)
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Goosen L W

WISHFUL HEART is a course specialist and he didn't disgrace himself against top class sand sprinters over this c & d last time. He takes a big drop in class and despite a hefty mass, he should be extremely competitive with Strydom in the saddle.




Race 7: DEFINING LOOKS(7) TOP BET
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Alexander G M

DEFINING LOOKS plummeted in the merit ratings and took full advantage of a low sand mark as she bounced right back to her best form with an impressive last victory over six furlongs on this track, three weeks ago. The daughter of Trippi may have escaped with just a five pound penalty and she meets a similar line-up. She won't have any issues with this minimum distance and should go very close.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 2: KILLUA CASTLE(2)
Jockey: Mansour D - Trainer: Woodruff G V

A competitive field lines up for this pinnacle stakes event and with a few natural pacesetters present a strong gallop is expected. KILLUA CASTLE will enjoy that and his pole barrier position is a major plus on his seasonal debut. The classy six-year old gelding is c & d suited and holds strong claims despite his big mass.
