Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: ACE OF SPEED(7)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: E Verdonese 

ACE OF SPEED made the expected improvement when he stayed on smartly for 3rd in a decent field over a similar distance despite racing wide second time out. The well-related bay colt should continue to progress and he holds strong claims with top jockey Gavin Lerena retaining the ride.

Race 5: SKY HIGH(15)
Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: S Tarry

SKY HIGH was quietly fancied when he ran on strongly for 2nd on debut over seven furlongs on this track early last month. The chestnut colt is bred to handle this steep rise in distance and he should make natural improvement. His yard has turned the corner in recent weeks.


Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: C Dawson 

A smart field has assembled for the day's topliner which is a nine furlong Pinnacle Stakes contest. The pace should be decent and a true result is expected. SYLVAN ON FIRE continues to improve with experience and the classy four-year old ran way above her rating when she finished strongly for a close 4th in a Grade 2 contest over a mile on this course four weeks ago. Her current rating indicates that she has work to do in this field but the daughter of Silvano is certainly better than that. She had the highly rated subsequent Grade 3 winner CASCAPEDIA behind her when winning her penultimate effort over this distance. The former is 0.5kg to the good.


Race 9: TORRE DEL ORO(4)
Jockey:  A Delpech   - Trainer: S Tarry

TORRE DEL ORO has shown vast improvement since being gelded and he is clearly on the up. He prefers a solid gallop though and he finished strongly to beat a decent field over this c & d on yielding ground two weeks ago. The Trippi gelding was penalized five pounds for that recent victory but he has more to offer and can complete the hat-trick despite the steep rise in class. 



Race 4: WRITTEN(2)
Jockey: L Hewitson  - Trainer: S Tarry

WRITTEN has obvious issues as she returns from a lengthy 59 week absence but the well-bred daughter of Western Winter showed fair potential behind some useful types and her conditioner usually brings them back fit and well. She produced an eye-catching debut over a similar distance and the lightly raced four-year old can register the upset on her comeback showing.
