Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: SANTIBURI(5)
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Robbie SAGE 

SANTIBURI is above-average and she relished the rise to the mile when quickening smartly to shed her maiden tag, eight weeks ago. The imported daughter of High Chaparral would have strengthened during the break and she has plenty of improvement still to come. This longer run-in will suit her perfectly and she should go very well in this higher class. It is worth noting that she is the stable's only entrant on the card.


Top Bet
Race 2: UNAGI(2)Jockey: Andrew FORTUNE - Trainer: Gary ALEXANDER 

There are some quality juveniles on display in this contest and the formline could be one to follow. UNAGI returns to face his own age group today and he is bidding to secure a hat-trick of victories. The above-average inmate from the Gary Alexander yard quickened in fine fashion to trounce his handicap field over a mile on the Vaal Classic Track recently and he does seem to have plenty of class about him. The drop in distance on this galloping course should prove no issue for the son of Admire Main who can be followed with confidence.


Race 3: NAVETTE(3)
Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Joe SOMA

NAVETTE has improved smartly in her last two starts and she fared well, albeit finding no extra when runner-up, after trying blinkers over nine furlongs on this course, three weeks ago. She was probably moved on too soon that day so the mile could be a great advantage for the daughter of Tiger Ridge who will again wear the headgear. The Joey Soma inmate has further progress in her and she jumps from the best draw with 'Striker' in the saddle.


Race 6: TRIP TEASE(1)Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Louis GOOSEN 

The Louis Goosen yard could again come to the fore here and their champion sprinter TRIP TEASE is well placed in this pinnacle stakes event. The 14-time victor tired late to finish 4th in a Grade 1 over this c & d last time and the runner-up Talktothestars subsequently won at the highest level in KZN. This son of Trippi is by some distance best in on official ratings and he should take a power of beating. He goes extremely well for Strydom.


Race 5: SEVENTH SYMPHONY(4)Jockey: Piere STRYDOM - Trainer: Louis GOOSEN 

There are some hard-knocking sprint handicappers in this competitive contest and another exciting finish is expected. SEVENTH SYMPHONY had a fair last run in a KZN minor feature and she would have benefitted from the eleven-week break. Interestingly, her last victory came over CROWN OF ROSES at this level under Strydom, earlier this season and she is weighted to confirm the form. The daughter of Seventh Rock dips in class and she need only reproduce the c & d feature performance behind Little Genie and runner-up Carry On Alice on 14/11 to warrant huge claims in this field. The Louis Goosen inmate could represent decent each/way value in this field.
