TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 2: DESERT ILLUSION (1)
Jockey: Greg CHEYNE - Trainer: Brett CRAWFORD

DESERT ILLUSION is the best bet on the day. He showed good improvement in his last start over this C&D. He challenged strongly all the way to the line, but found one too good in the form of Giacomo Puccini. The son of Willow Magic jumps from a better barrier position this afternoon and if repeating that effort, he should go one better in this field.  
                                             


Race 5: CAPTAIN TATTERS (2)
Jockey: Fourie R - Trainer: Snaith J

Trainer Justin Snaith holds a strong hand in this contest and he can saddle the first two past the winning post. CAPTAIN TATTERS' last two starts in KZN were good. He should have gone closer last time, but hung in the latter stages. He won his only attempt over this C&D and is the class horse in the race. If not in need of this outing, he should get back to winning ways.

Race 6: CLOUDS UNFOLD (1)
Jockey: Aldo DOMEYER - Trainer: BASS-ROBINSON

CLOUDS UNFOLD'S effort in the Grade 1 Garden Province Stakes can be ignored as she was reported to have bled. The classy mare returns from her suspension, during which time she would have had a rest. She won her only attempt over this trip and from pole position, she should get back to winning ways.
                                                



Race 7: KASIMIR (1)
Jockey: Richard FOURIE - Trainer: Justin SNAITH

KASIMIR was doing his best work at the finish in the Grade 1 Mercury Sprint last time. He has won once and finished second once from as many starts on this course. The son of Captain Al has placed twice from three starts over this distance and can get back to winning ways today.  
                                              



VALUE BET FOR TODAY

Race 8: FIFTYSHADESDARKER (5)
Jockey: Grant V/NIEKERK - Trainer: C BASS-ROBINSON

FIFTYSHADESDARKER ran a creditable race in the Grade 2 The Debutante last time. She was squeezed at the start but ran on well in the closing stages. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The daughter of Gimmethegreenlight looks to have plenty of scope and she may be the one to side with.
