Race 9: LADY TIPTREE (6)
Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 2: ELMO (14)
Jockey: Habib C – Trainer: Fortune A
ELMO produced a promising debut effort over this distance at Turffontein. Despite racing green, he showed good pace and tried hard all the way to the line. The son of Capetown Noir would have gained from the experience and if all went well with his travels, he should go one better here.
Race 4: VICTORY TWIST (8)
Jockey: Agrella W – Trainer: Rivalland A
VICTORY TWIST has shown good improvement in each of his outings to date. He should have finished closer last time as he hung in the latter stages. The son of Flying The Flag will love the step up in distance. He jumps from a better barrier position today and if keeping on a straight line, he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure.
Race 8: SPYDAS CORNER (11)
Jockey: De Melo K – Trainer: Howells D
SPYDAS CORNER was ultra-impressive when winning his last start over 1100m on this course. He has won twice and finished second once from as many starts over this distance. Despite his big mass of 60.5kgs, he should be too good for this field.
Race 9: HONOKALANI (1)
Jockey: Sakayi K – Trainer: Miller M
HONOKALANI showed good improvement when finishing second over this distance on the polytrack last time. He was reported to be coughing that day which makes the effort that much more encouraging. The son of Vercingetorix tries the turf for the first time and if suited to the surface, he can shed his maiden tag.
Race 7: WISHFUL GIRL LIN (1)
Jockey: Hewitson L – Trainer: Puller G
WISHFUL GIRL LINN has taken on much stronger company in her last two starts at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She has won twice and finished second twice from six starts over this distance. She drops back to Handicap company this afternoon and from pole position, can return to winning ways.
