Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: O'REILLY(2)
Race 2: ATATURK(5)
Race 5: LUPO(3)

Race 1: O'REILLY(2)
Jockey: Brandon LERENA -  Trainer: Tony RIVALLAND 

O'REILLY has found his best form since being equipped with blinkers and he can go one better than a close 2nd over this trip on the grass four weeks ago. The formline shows that he has much to find with SHINE UP on the Kapen Pride effort on this track but the four-year old grey gelding had excuses that day and has improved significantly since.

Race 2: ATATURK(5)
Jockey: Stuart RANDOLPH - Trainer: Paul GADSBY

Just half a dozen entrants head to post for this competitive ten furlong handicap where the top rating ATATURK places his unbeaten c & d record on the line. The Ideal World gelding is undoubtedly a track specialist despite his fair last two runs on the grass. He was again impressive with his burst of speed en route to an easy c & d victory over lesser rivals three runs back. He should easily handle the step-up in class.

Jockey: Anthony DELPECH - Trainer: Dean KANNEMEYER 

TRAVEL GUIDE showed decent improvement when she stayed on for 2nd after setting the pace in a competitive seven furlong affair on this surface three weeks ago. She drops in class and should enjoy this shorter trip.

Race 5: LUPO(3)
Jockey: Ashton ARRIES - Trainer: Michael ROBERTS 

LUPO is a lightly raced four-year old plagued with issues and he naturally took to this 'forgiving' surface. He also made full use of his low rating after his easy maiden as the bay gelding drew off to beat his handicap rivals over this c & d in early November. The victory earned him a five pound hike but he clearly has more to offer on this track and can reel off the hat-trick.

Race 3: BIG BLUE NIGHT(11) (Each Way)
Jockey: Eric S NGWANE- Trainer: Sean TARRY

BIG BLUE NIGHT has come back well after his obvious setback which kept him out of action and he didn't surprise with a decent last effort at this lower-level. The formline indicates that he has plenty to find with STORM RACER on their clash behind The Bayou but the Tarry inmate was returning from a 41 week rest that day and he only tired late. The son of Warm White Night will prefer this drop in trip on his peak showing and he can heavily reduce the deficit with his more fancied rival. He is drawn best of all.
