Magic Tips Best Bets

Jockey: Chase MAUJEAN – Trainer: Lucky HOUDALAKIS

A moderate opening contest but EDEN ESTUARY should build on her promising debut, albeit in a weak field, six weeks ago. She is the pick of the raced runners and the daughter of Right Approach showed pace before coming off second best over this trip on the inside course, that day. However, the strong market support on that occasion suggests that she is working well back home and she should make plenty of natural improvement. She gets fitted with alumites for the first time and merits healthy respect.

Jockey: Robbie FRADD – Trainer: Gary ALEXANDER

JUMPSTART appears well above-average and she has produced two promising efforts to date. She was outrun late on her debut over 1160m and was again caught close to home over a mile, next time out. It is slightly concerning that she has been rested twice, suggesting that she may have issues but she has lots of room for improvement and could easily trounce tonight’s opposition. The daughter of Trippi races fresh so the trip won’t be an issue and she is drawn extremely well at barrier 2. Also, the 3rd placed horse of her last start has boosted the form by winning her maiden since.

Jockey: Sherman BROWN – Trainer: Ormond FERRARIS

This is the first of some top class racing on tonight’s card and thirteen runners go to post in this opening leg of the jackpot. STRAW MARKET has always shown top class ability and had a satisfactory four-year old campaign, last season. He needed both his comeback runs and will be cherry-ripe on his third run after the rest tonight. The son of Windrush isn’t far off the best of his generation and is very effective on this track. In fact, the last time he raced over this c & d in late February, he was beaten a long head by the top class mare, ILHA BELA and the pair meet on similar terms here. The top rating hasn’t won for a while but is threatening that 5th career win and the most crucial thing is that he is reacquainted with arguably his favourite pilot, in Sherman Brown. He should be very competitive.


Jockey: Randall SIMONS – Trainer: Dianne STENGER

WENSLEYDALE has improved nicely since being equipped with blinkers and quite frankly should have won her comeback run over 1450m on the inside coure, three weeks ago. The daughter of Spanish Harlem was baulked for a number of strides just as she was about to get into top stride but she still recovered and flew late, only to be beaten a long head at the wire. She will strip fitter tonight and the long run-in will suit her down to the ground. She is the clear first pick of the raced runners and should go extremely close.


Race 6: KINDLE(8) (Each Way)
Jockey: Anthony DELPECH – Trainer: Mike DE KOCK

This is another competitive affair and some useful stayers go to post. However, there could be a serious lack of pace and that could result in an upset so caution must be exercised. However, the De Kock inmate, KINDLE looks to have overcome his issues and is improving nicely after his lengthy absence. He stayed on for 3rd, beaten 4.35 lengths by BALSE over 2200m on the inside course in his penultimate outing but clearly still needed that effort. He meets his conqueror on similar terms but showed courage to win his last start under a big mass and will love racing down this longer run-in. He rises in class but is bred to stay all day and could stake a serious claim with just 52kgs on his back. He enjoys racing from or near the front so a likely sedate gallop will play right into his hands.
