Magic Tips Best Bets


Race 1: LHASA STAR (2)
Jockey: Khumalo S  - Trainer: Azzie M

LHASA STAR'S last two starts after returning from an 11-week break have been good. The manner in which she stayed on at the finish over the minimum trip last time was encouraging. The daughter of Potala Palace will enjoy the step up to the 1450m and should be at peak fitness. S'manga Khumalo takes the ride from pole position and the combination should find themselves in the winner's enclosure.



Race 3: THE SANDWICH MAN (1)
Jockey: Brown S - Trainer: Fortune A

THE SANDWICH MAN showed good improvement in his last start over this C&D. He stayed on well at the finish that day, but found one too good in the form of Cappella Magna. Sherman Brown retains the ride this afternoon and if repeating that effort, he should go one better in this type of field.

Race 4: AL MUTHANA (6)
Jockey: Brown S - Trainer: De Kock M

AL MUTHANA was ultra-impressive when winning on debut over 1160m on the Standside course. He lost a length at the start, but showed pace and drew off well for the victory. Nourbese who finished second that day, has come out and won a Grade 2 race since. The son of Deep Field returns from a 17-week break, during which time he would have strengthened up. He could be anything and if not in need of the run, he should remain unbeaten.


TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 8: COPPER MOUNTAIN (1)
Jockey: Danielson R - Trainer: Janse van Vuur

COPPER MOUNTAIN is a winner of his last two starts. He raced from a prominent position last time and rallied well to get the win. The son of Noble Tune looks to be above average and has a very good chance of notching up the hat-trick.



VALUE BET
Race 2: MIDNIGHT CALLER (9) 
Jockey: Lerena G - Trainer: Marwing W

MIDNIGHT CALLER produced a promising debut effort over six furlongs on this course. He was slow into stride, raced green but finished his race off well. The son of Twice Over will enjoy the step up to the mile and if this run has not come too soon, he should make the natural improvement.
