Winning Form Best Bets

Race 3: SECRET DREAM (7)
Race 5: SO LONG SPRING (13)
Race 6: DAWN ASSAULT (1)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: D Schwarz - Trainer: G Alexander

GENERAL JACKSON was running on well after being slow into stride in his comeback outing over the c&d. He is drawn the widest, but is likely to be dropped out of it early and should be picking off the frontrunners in the closing stages of the race. 

Race 4: WAQAAS (2)
Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: F Habib

WAQAAS has consistent formlines to his name and has recorded two of his three wins to date over this distance. He set the pace in his last start over the distance and was only collared very late. He has a wide draw to overcome, but he may use his early gate speed to move across without using up too much energy.

Race 6: DAWN ASSAULT (1)
Jockey: G LErena - Trainer: St John D Gray

The DAWN ASSAULT formline of 19 December over this distance may well be repeated here this afternoon as the top three selections meet on exactly the same weight terms here. 

Race 7: SOCIAL ORDER (1)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: S Tarry

SOCIAL ORDER returns to the Highveld after his narrow defeat in the Christmas Handicap over a mile at Hollywoodbets Greyville. If over his travels, he looks to be the one that they all have to beat here.

Race 9: VARIMAX (11)
Jockey: K Matsunyane - Trainer: R Sage

The Sullenberger formline of 28 December over this c&d features prominently in this race and REBEL RENEGADE did best that day. He finished 0.5L in front of VARIMAX in the race, but is 0.5kgs worse off at today's weights. It should also be noted that the jockey on the latter dropped his rein during that race and as such, he is taken as the top selection.
