Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 1: DRIVE BY (2)
Jockey: Kennedy W – Trainer: Van Zyl G
DRIVE BY showed very good improvement when fitted with the blinkers last time. She showed good pace, but was outrun in the latter stages by Family Favourite. The daughter of Rafeef should strip a much fitter horse this afternoon and it is encouraging that Warren Kennedy steps into the saddle. She should be hard to peg back.
Race 3: DUQUESNE WHISTLE (8)
Jockey: Marcus A – Trainer: Odendaal M
DUQUESNE WHISTLE has some decent recent form lines to her credit. She was running on well to finish third over this C&D last time. Anton Marcus takes the ride this afternoon and he may be able to coax that little bit extra out of her where it matters most.
TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 4: OCTOBER SONG (7)
Jockey: Moodley S – Trainer: Miller M D
OCTOBER SONG produced a promising debut effort over 1200m. She should have finished closer to the winner that day as she was green in running and had to shift at the 150m mark. She found plenty of betting support that day which suggests that she had been showing good work back at home. The daughter of Rafeef will love the extra furlong on offer and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should take a power of beating.
Race 5: HASTA MANANA (1)
Jockey: V.Niekerk G – Trainer: Nel W A
FLEETING lost a length at the start on debut over 1000m, but the manner in which she finished off her race was encouraging. The daughter of Querari will love the step up to the 1400m and with the natural progression that is expected, she should be the one to beat.
Race 8: HER ROYAL MAJEST (9)
Jockey: Khumalo S – Trainer: Dawson C
HER ROYAL MAJESTY finished 4.45 lengths behind LADY CATHERINE last time. She is 5kgs better off at the weights this afternoon and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. She was reported to be cut into on her right hind that day which didn’t help her cause. On best form shown, she should be hard to peg back.
