Winning Form Best Bets

Race 6: SIDECAR(11)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Ferreira S M

TRIPADVISOR is well-bred and she has produced two smart sprints to date. Her pedigree suggests that she will relish the slight step-up in distance and Strydom takes the ride for the in-form yard. The Johan Janse van Vuuren inmate ISABELLE is improving with each outing and she could give the top rating most cheek. The daughter of Western Winter is having her fourth career start and she was outrun late into 2nd over this distance in her comeback run, six weeks ago. She has a little to find with the outsider PEGGY JAY on her penultimate performance behind Tender Mist but has improved immensely since and could overturn the form with Weichong Marwing in the saddle.

Race 2: KWINTA(2) - TOP BET
Jockey: Strydom P - Trainer: Ferreira S M

KWINTA has shown top potential in her five starts to date but the blinkers clearly sparked an improve- ment when she trounced LADY AL (5.5kgs worse off) by 4.50 lengths over this c & d, last time out. She was given the expected maximum eight pound penalty but the well-related daughter of Kahal could still be ahead of the handicapper as she has tons of scope for further improvement. She will be cherry ripe on her peak run and should take a power of beating.

Jockey: Maujean C - Trainer: Houdalakis M N

SWEET HABANERO has had two fair efforts to date and she made good improvement behind a top sort, second time out. The daughter of Kildonan moved up well before tiring late into 3rd against winners over seven furlongs that day and she would have strengthened since. She now faces maiden rivals on her seasonal debut and should go very close.

Race 5: NETFLIX(2)
Jockey: Marwing Weicho - Trainer: Houdalakis M N

NETFLIX took a while but he improved his formline with a smart last effort over a mile. The well-bred son of Tiger Ridge is much better drawn today and he should continue to progress. Weichong Marwing gets the ride for the first time.


Race 8: PENSTOCK(4)
Jockey: Fortune A - Trainer: Tarry S G

This is a low-key handicap but there is a top betting proposition in the form of recent maiden winner PENSTOCK from the Sean Tarry yard. The Jay Peg gelding took all of 13 runs to shed his maiden tag but there was plenty of merit in the victory over this distance. He had numerous traffic issues but finally saw daylight to win going away. He takes a rise in class but could be much better than his low rating. Andrew Fortune's patient riding style could be a major asset for the gelding on his handicap debut.
