Winning Form Best Bets

Race 2: FONTEYN(2)
Race 3: PYRENEES IN SPAIN(6)
Race 8: BREAKFAST CLUB(1)
Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: ROY HAD ENOUGH(12)
Jockey: Muzi YENI – Trainer: Frank ROBINSON
The juveniles hold decent claims in this opening contest where ROY HAD ENOUGH is expected to relish the mile after his two smart sprints on the grass. The imported colt is well drawn on his polytrack debut and regular pilot Yeni retains the ride.
Race 2: FONTEYN(2)
Jockey: Ashton ARRIES – Trainer: Yogas GOVENDER
FONTEYN is back in form after two below-par runs and her short but effective burst of speed will help her to easily cope with the mile this afternoon. The other pluses are her good draw and her stable’s decent run of form.
Race 4: RACING SOCKS(12)
Jockey: Muzi YENI – Trainer: Brian WIID
The Gauteng visitor RACING SOCKS is a relentless galloper who is unbeaten from two c & d efforts. He returned to form with a game last effort on the Highveld and should be highly competitive with his regular pilot Yeni in the irons. The five-year-old is well drawn and is his yard’s only entrant on the card.
Race 8: ARCHILLES(5)
Jockey: Ian STURGEON – Trainer: Yogas GOVENDER
ARCHILLES is a track specialist who didn’t disgrace himself when unfavourably weighted on the grass recently and he drops heavily in class today. He had some very good prior form particularly over this c & d and he meets the likely favourite BREAKFAST CLUB on 2kgs better terms for a three parts of a length defeat at the start of autumn. His yard is in good form and the well-drawn son of Captain Al has definite claims.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY
Race 3: TRIP TO RIO(9)
Jockey: Gareth WRIGHT – Trainer: Mike DE KOCK
Many of the older rivals are well-handicapped in this highly competitive ten-furlong contest where a close finish is expected. The true pace should bring the lightweights heavily into contention and the only entrant from the red-hot Mike de Kock yard, TRIP TO RIO can maintain his unbeaten c & d record. The five-year-old has been plying his trade on the Highveld for some time now where he produced fair performances. The son of Trippi is very capable at this level and he continues to steadily drop in the merit ratings. He will relish the likely solid gallop and should be picking off his rivals in the home straight.
