Magic Tips Best Bets


Race 1: DROP KICK(7)
Jockey: R Danielson - Trainer: A Laird 

DROP KICK has finished runner-up in his last three starts over a mile and should handle this soft nine furlongs on the Classic Track. He was 2nd best behind a high class sort last time out and that form has worked out well. His fellow three-year old FLATTLEY also doesn't have the pedigree that convinces he will cope with this trip but the manner in which he finished his encouraging last mile effort indicates otherwise.

DROP KICK(7)


TOP BET
Race 3: LALIA(3)
Jockey: Muzi YENI - Trainer: R Sage

LALIA expectedly enjoyed the rise in ground when she produced an improved last performance over ten furlongs but the daughter of Silvano should have finished closer but for traffic issues at a crucial stage. She gave every indication that she will love this extra two furlongs and she merits healthy respect.

Race 4: SAILOR GIRL(1)
Jockey: C Maujean - Trainer: S Ferreira

SAILOR GIRL lived up to her pedigree as she relished the rise in ground when holding on for an eye catching recent triumph over male rivals over this trip four weeks ago. The bay daughter of Sail From Seattle concedes weight all around today but she is still extremely well in on official ratings and has huge claims of following up.

Race 7: WINTER'S FORGE(1)
Jockey: M V.Rensburg - Trainer: S Ferreira

A most intriguing assessment plate where the betting market and official ratings point heavily in the direction of WINTER'S FORGE whose creditable penultimate showing indicates that she will cope with the mile. The four-year old daughter of Western Winter has the right credentials and is undoubtedly the one to beat.



WINTER'S FORGE(1)


VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 6: MWELASE(3)
Jockey: S Khumalo - Trainer: J Soma

It could pay to follow the progress of Mambo Model who participates in the prior event as the top rating here, MWELASE, stayed on to finish 2nd best behind the former over ten furlongs a fortnight ago. She was only raised a pound so should continue to flourish in these handicaps. The four-year old will enjoy this longer run-in.
