Winning Form Best Bets
Race 2: MISTINGUETT(7) – TOP BET
Jockey: Keagan DE MELO – Trainer: Gavin VAN ZYL
MISTINGUETT built on her fair debut when she stayed on nicely for second over this trip at Greyville last time behind the heavily supported Lemonade River. The daughter of Fort Wood still has plenty of scope for improvement and could take a power of beating from a much better draw today.
Race 4: DUX(4)
Jockey: Ian STURGEON – Trainer: Dennis BOSCH
DUX has been ultra-consistent in recent outings and was close-up over a mile on this course, seven days ago. She has placed over this c & d and merits healthy respect in this line-up.
Race 7: KRACKERJACK ACE(1)
Jockey: Mandla NTULI – Trainer: Mark DIXON
KRACKERJACK ACE is seldom beaten far and is overdue his next career win. He is most effective over this minimum trip and clearly has an affinity for this course. He has been taking on much stronger for quite some time now and will definitely benefit from a 4kgs apprentice claim. He should give a very good account of himself.
Race 9: SLEEK JET(5)
SLEEK JET regained her best form when given a good ride as she got up late to beat BEAUTIFUL JET over this trip at Greyville, five weeks ago. The win earned her a three pound penalty but she is only 0.5kg worse off with the runner-up and seems to enjoy Sean Veale’s riding style. She meets a similar field and can follow up. The latter doesn’t have the experience of having raced on this course but she is lightly raced and is still improving.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 3: CARIBBEAN DAY(1) (Each Way)
Jockey: Ian STURGEON – Trainer: Mark DIXON
CARIBBEAN DAY didn’t stay ten furlongs last time but is much better than that performance and his previous form shows it. He was also drawn wide in his penultimate outing, over this c & d under today’s jockey but stayed on nicely for a close third. He takes on slightly stronger today but will be more effective over the mile and can record an upset.
