Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: LION CRUISE (6)
Jockey: Habib C - Trainer: Maroun G

LION CRUISE'S last two starts have been decent considering that he returned fatigued. He took on much stronger company in the SA Nursery in his penultimate start and was far from disgraced. The son of Crusade's best run to date has been over this distance and if putting his best foot forward, he should take a power of beating.


TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 5: SHADOW CREEK (1)
Jockey: Ferraris L - Trainer: De Kock M

SHADOW CREEK ran an absolute cracker when taking on winners over a mile on the Inside course at Turffontein last time. He raced from a handy position that day, but was caught in the latter stages. He drops back to Maiden company this afternoon and from draw four, he should take a power of beating.

Race 6: TREND MASTER (5)
Jockey: Strydom P- Trainer: Houdalakis M

TREND MASTER has very good consistent form lines to his credit. He had to overcome a wide draw last time, but finished his race off strongly. He has won twice and finished second once from as many starts over this distance. He jumps from barrier position two today and should be the one to beat.

                                              
Race 7: CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT (2)
Jockey: Khumalo S - Trainer: Fortune A

CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT has top consistent form lines to his credit. Despite S'manga Khumalo dropping his crop last time, he produced a strong finish to get up where it matters most. The son of Captain Of All is unbeaten from two starts on this course and should keep that record intact today. 

                                             
VALUE BET
Race 4: LASS GOING WEST (7)
Jockey: Maujean C Trainer: Houdalakis M

LASS GOING WEST is much better than her last start suggests. She had to overcome a wide draw that day and stayed on at the business end. The daughter of Captain Of All tries the cheekpieces for the first time today and if these have the desired effect, she should be the one to beat. She carries just 52kgs on her back which will help her cause.
