Winning Form Best Bets

Race 1: TITELIST (1)
Race 3: TOP RANK (11)
Race 6: IKIGAI (5)
Race 7: AL MUTAWAKEL (4)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 4: FACTOR FIFTY (5)
Jockey: W Kennedy - Trainer: D Nieuwenhuizen

FACTOR FIFTY has solid formlines to her credit and did well to finish where she did in her last start over the marathon sixteen furlongs after being cut into on her left hind. With Warren Kennedy reunited with the filly, she may be able to record her fourth career win this afternoon.

Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: J Soma

GOT THE GREENLIGHT returns from a 23-week break, but the booking of Gavin Lerena to ride would suggest that the connections are expecting a big run from the colt. He was impressive when winning the Premier Champions Challenge at Hollywoodbets Greyville on eLan Gold Cup day and if he is able to reproduce that run this afternoon, he may prove difficult to beat here. 

Race 7: AL MUTAWAKEL (4)
Jockey: L J Ferraris - Trainer: S Tarry

AL MUTAWAKEL has solid formlines to his name and was certainly not disgraced in the Summer Cup. He drops back to nine furlongs and his penultimate effort over this trip has to be totally ignored as he choked up in running. He looks to be the one to side with here. 

Race 9: PIDGEON ROCK (2)
Jockey: D Schwarz - Trainer: S Tarry

PIDGEON ROCK has encouraging form to his name. He won a good race last time out over six furlongs and will be looking to complete the double here. He seems to have struck up a solid partnership with Denis Schwarz.

Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: R Magner

The Roy Magner yard could complete the exacta here, with the first choice going to DANCING QUEEN with Gavin Lerena in the saddle. Her stable companion POOL PARTY finished 0.75L behind her in their last clash over seven furlongs and as they meet on the same weight terms here, that result may be confirmed here. The latter is the only ride on the day for Mark Khan. That race was of course over further, but the former does have better form over this distance.
