Race 2: EARTH SHAKER (8)
Race 5: TREND MASTER (1)
Race 7: WINTER SMOKE (1)
Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 2: LIVERPOOL LEGEND (5)
Jockey: Khumalo S – Trainer: Gray St John
LIVERPOOL LEGEND has some decent recent form to her credit. She should have finished closer to the winner last time as she hung in the latter stages. She has finished third twice from as many starts over this C&D. If keeping on a straight line, she should be the one to beat. She is carded to race on 20 April 2021 and her progress in that race will need to be checked.
TOP BET FOR TODAY
Race 3: CASTLE DURROW (1)
Jockey: Zackey C – Trainer: Houdalakis M
CASTLE DURROW ran a good race when finishing second in much stronger company last time. The manner in which she finished off her race that day suggests she will be at home over today’s distance. She won her only attempt on this course. The daughter of Global View takes a big drop in class and should return to winning ways.
Race 6: EURO CENT (5)
Jockey: Kennedy W – Trainer: Peter P
EURO CENT followed up his maiden win with a good third-place finish over 1450m on this course. He set the pace that day and tried hard all the way to the line. The son of Flower Alley is having his second run after a rest and should strip fitter. The combination of Paul Peter and Warren Kennedy are in form and should find themselves in the winner’s enclosure.
Race 7: THUMBS UP (3)
Jockey: Simons R – Trainer: Janse van Vuur
THUMBS UP was ultra-impressive when winning her last start over this C&D. It must be noted that the horse that finished fourth that day has come out and won since. The daughter of Gimmethegreenlight looks to be in a good space and should notch up her fourth career victory.
Race 4: STONE COLD (4)
Jockey: De Gouveia D – Trainer: Dawson C
STONE COLD is much better than his last start in KZN as he was reported to be changing strides by the jockey. He has won once and finished second once from three starts over this distance. He returns to Handicap company this afternoon and from his mid-field draw, he may be hard to peg back in the run down to the line.
