Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: LOTUS (10)
Jockey: Kennedy W - Trainer: Peter P

LOTUS is the best bet on today's card. She produced a promising debut effort when finishing second over six furlongs on this course. She didn't get the best of starts that day, but stayed on well at the finish. The daughter of Flower Alley would have come on from the run and will enjoy the extra distance on offer. Warren Kennedy takes the ride and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should be tough to beat. 

                                      

Race 4: THE EIGHTH LORD (1)
Jockey: Zackey C  - Trainer: Spies C

THE EIGHTH LORD is one of the better bets on today's card. His last four starts have been good. He was his own worst enemy last time as he overraced in the early stages. The drop in trip will suit him well and if switching off early, he should be too good for this type of field.


                                        

TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 6: BARAK (1)
Jockey: Brown S - Trainer: De Kock M

BARAK won a good race last time when fitted with the blinkers. He raced from a handy position that day and fought hard all the way to the line. The manner in which he races suggests that he will enjoy the rise to the twelve furlongs. Sherman Brown is in very good form and the combination should find themselves in the winner's enclosure once again.

                                              

Race 7: SPANISH BOY (6)
Jockey: Habib Devin - Trainer: Houdalakis M

SPANISH BOY won a good race over six furlongs last time. That was his first start with the cheek pieces and the headgear remains fitted today. He drops to the minimum trip for the first time and will be mowing down the frontrunners in the run down to the line.

                                             
VALUE BET

Race 5: THE MAKWAKKERS (8) 
Jockey: Storey C - Trainer: Magner R

THE MAKWAKKERS is the value bet on this afternoon's programme. He showed signs of a form return last time when taking on much stronger company. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. He has won once, finished second twice and third once from seven attempts over this trip. He should be cherry-ripe and can cause an upset.
