Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 1:MR ALFONSO(2) – TOP BET
Jockey: Franklin MALEKING – Trainer: Lucky HOUDALAKIS

MR ALFONSO has shown plenty of promise to date but missed most of his four-year old career due to injury. However, his two promising comeback runs on this surface has shown his well-being. He will be cherry-ripe on his third run after the layoff today and could take some beating. The minimum trip suits him best and he gets the services of a 4kgs apprentice claim. 
Race 2:LADY JULIA(3)
Jockey: Akash AUCHARUZ – Trainer: Brett WARREN

This is a very tricky contest that may lack a genuine pace. This could play into the hands of LADY JULIA who tries this trip for the first time. The daughter of Bezrin has already proven her worth on the sand, albeit up to 1450m. She has kept her form really well and even finished a good second behind male rivals in her penultimate outing. That earned her a four pound penalty but she is clearly improving on the sand and merits healthy respect.
Race 5:WEEKEND SPECIAL(4)
Jockey: Randall SIMONS – Trainer: Paul MATCHETT

WEEKEND SPECIAL faded badly when taking on male rivals over the minimum trip on this course, six weeks ago. However, she is much better than that and demolished her female counterparts by just over seven lengths over this c & d in her penultimate outing. She is handily drawn at barrier 3 today and could bounce back to her best form, despite rising in class.

Race 7:LIGETI(7)
Jockey: Randall SIMONS – Trainer: Paul MATCHETT

LIGETI didn’t overrace without blinkers and it worked in his favour when he fought back to win over this c & d last time, after setting his own pace. The four pound penalty, coupled with no apprentice claim today, does make his task of following up much harder but he gets the services of the stable jockey and could again be competitive without the blinkers. The son of Western Winter seems to have rescued his career since trying this surface and he jumps from pole position.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 3: ROYAL TASKA(1) (Each Way)
Jockey: Nooresh JUGLALL – Trainer: Kumaran NAIDOO

ROYAL TASKA showed nice improvement on her comeback run, three weeks ago. The Kom Naidoo inmate was making her sand debut and she stayed on for fifth, from a wide draw over six furlongs. She will strip much fitter this time around and the extra 250m and a better draw could make all the difference.
