Race 1: VALYRIAN KING (11)
Race 2: AFTERNOON TEA (1)
Race 3: ELUSIVE JACK (3)
Race 6: RIVONIA BOULEVARD (2)

Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: AFTERNOON TEA (1)
Jockey: S Khumalo - Trainer: A Fortune

More than half the runners in this race are having their first start and is always the case in these type of races, keen attention should be paid to the betting markets to see what the various stables think about their chances of winning the contest. Of the raced runners, the one that stands out is AFTERNOON TEA who has finished second in both of her starts to date.


Race 3: DUCHESS OF WINDS (14)
Jockey: C Habib - Trainer: J Van Vuuren

DUCHESS OF WINDSOR returns from a 16 week break and is a 3yr old filly taking on the boys. She has finished third in both of her starts to date and was staying on nicely in her last outing over 1160M. On that effort, she should have no problem handling the slightly longer trip of today's race.


TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 4: GIN FIZZ (1)
Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: M de Kock

GIN FIZZ is a speedy sort who has finished second in her last two outings over 1160M at Turffontein. She seems certain to appreciate the drop down to the minimum distance and looks to be the one to side with here. 


Race 5: FAYROOZ (15)
Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: M de Kock

FAYROOZ is lightly raced having had just the two runs to date. She took a big jump in distance up to ten furlongs last time out after a debut over six furlongs. That may have been too far for her at this stage of her career and she quickly drops back to a mile. She should give a good account of herself here. 


VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 7: TOKYO DRIFT (1)
Jockey: G Lerena - Trainer: S Kenny

TOKYO DRIFT ran on strongly to just fail to overhaul the winner in his last start over 1450M. Gavin Lerena rode him that day and would have learnt a lot about him. The pair are likely to come home with a powerful finish over this extra distance.
