Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: FRIKKIE(3)
Jockey: Weichong MARWING - Trainer: Weiho MARWING 

FRIKKIE is in decent form and he was rather surprisingly docked two pounds in his ratings after a fair last feature effort over further seven days ago. He finished comfortably ahead of FORTUNE FELLA that day and the pair could dominate this much lower class event. The top selection has a very smart c & d record and is top jockey Marwing's only ride on the card.

Race 4: ALI BON DUBAI(2)
Jockey: Gavin LERENA - Trainer: Gavin VAN ZYL

ALI BON DUBAI is a lightly raced bay gelding who has shown ability and he caught the eye when posting a career best effort over shorter on this course three weeks ago. The Lateral gelding is plagued with issues but he ran on well for 3rd despite returning from a lengthy 38 week absence and he will strip fitter today. His pedigree suggests that he will relish this extra ground & top jockey Lerena retains the ride.

Race 7: VISUALITY(2)
Jockey: S'manga KHUMALO - Trainer: Sean TARRY 

VISUALITY had too much to do from her shocking barrier position in a Grade 2 event last time but she drops heavily in class now and is a huge contender from a good draw. That last formline was boosted when the 3rd placed finisher Orchid Island captured a Grade 1 subsequently. This chestnut filly from the Tarry yard was pipped in a lesser feature over this c & d in her penultimate outing.

Race 8: SHATOOSH(4)
Jockey: Karl ZECHNER - Trainer: Michael AZZIE 

SHATOOSH has come right back to best since returning from that lengthy absence and she can exact revenge on her recent conqueror THE SMELL OF RAIN (1kg worse off). The Trippi filly stayed on strongly when outrun late into 2nd by the latter in yielding conditions over shorter last time and she now has her peak showing. Her pedigree indicates that the Mike Azzie trained inmate should easily handle the mile and she can go one better. The likely sedate gallop will play right into her hands.



Jockey: Sherman BROWN - Trainer: Leon ERASMUS

APPROVAL MODE continues to drop in the ratings and his last effort suggesting that he is reaching a competitive mark. The bay gelding tired late down the Vaal straight in yielding conditions and the switch to his favourite surface is a major plus today. Of course the son of Miesque's Approval is unbeaten from two c & d efforts and he jumps from a good draw.
