Winning Form Best Bets

Race 1: NIMITZ (6)
Race 2: RIQAABY (9)
Race 5: ARIKEL (6)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1: NIMITZ (6)
Jockey: C Mabaya - Trainer: M Azzie

NIMITZ has cracked pole position and will be partnered by Chamu Mabaya who has enjoyed good success in these work riders events in the past. The Captain Al gelding was staying on in his last start over this distance and should give a good account of himself here.

Race 5: ARIKEL (6)
Jockey: P Strydom - Trainer: D Stengar  

ARIKEL was running on well in her last start despite hanging in the closing stages. She has solid form to her name and Piere Strydom has retained the ride. Both of her wins to date have been posted over this distance.

Jockey: P Strydom - Trainer: D Stengar 

QUERARI FERRARI has shown eye-catching acceleration to win her first two starts and will be hoping to complete her hat-trick here. Her jockey dropped his crop in her maiden win and she had to be switched before winning her next start. With just normal luck in running, she should be the one to side with here. She will, however, face some strong opposition. 

Race 8: WAQAAS (14)
Jockey: P Strydon - Trainers: F Habib

WAQAAS failed by a diminishing head to secure his hat-trick last time out over this distance. Piere Strydom takes over the reins and he will be hoping to get the gelding back to winning ways. He has posted two wins, a second and a third-place finish from six runs over this distance.

Race 6: LIFE EIS GOOD (2)
Jockey: P Strydom- Trainer: St John D Gray 

LIFE IS GOOD ran on strongly over five furlongs last time out to finish third, just 0.8L behind the winner and is sure to appreciate the extra furlong as her record will confirm. She is an eight time winner, two of which have come over this distance.
