Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: PYLON(1) – TOP BET
Jockey: Robbie FRADD – Trainer: Michael AZZIE

The sand superstar PYLON returns to his best surface today after two surprisingly very good runs on the turf. He is by some distance the best weighted runner in this contest and has pulverized most of today’s opposition before. He is again better off with many of his rivals and is expected to come home lonely.

Race 3: STROKE ONE(3)
Jockey: Marthinus MIENIE – Trainer: Alec LAIRD

STROKE ONE has always been thereabouts but she produced her career best effort with a 4kgs apprentice claim last time out. The daughter of Fort Wood raced handy and challenged strongly before being outrun late into second over this distance on the turf. She won’t enjoy a claim today but gets a top jockey up and could also enjoy racing on this surface. Her sire’s progeny usually take to the sand and she will benefit from a handy draw.

Race 4: COOKIE MONSTER(5)
Jockey: Juan-Paul v.d.MERWE – Trainer: Roy MAGNER

COOKIE MONSTER is a talented sort that had just one run for the Drier yard in KZN and has returned to his original home. The son of Kahal ran on nicely in that outing at Clairwood and finished two lengths behind in fourth position over the mile. He has already shown his versatility and has campaigned successfully against some quality opposition. He won his only c & d outing and is well treated at the weights. He should give a very good account of himself.

Race 6: WHERE’S MY CHOP(5)

Jockey: Fanie CHAMBERS – Trainer: St John GRAY
WHERE’S MY CHOP is a consistent sort that showed good form before his 13 week break. He has done well on this surface and ran on for second, beaten two lengths behind BARON ZEMO over this c & d in his last start. He meets his conqueror on 1.5kgs better terms and has a definite chance of reversing the form.

VALUE BET FOR TODAY:

Race 5: SHATTERED IMAGE(3) (Each Way)
Jockey: S’Manga KHUMALO – Trainer: Roy MAGNER

SHATTERED IMAGE is much better than her recent form suggests. She improved when making steady progress for fourth over this c & d last time, despite a big mass. She isn’t well treated by today’s weights in this conditions event but shoulders 7kgs less than in her last run and should be very competitive. This is her best c & d and she jumps from a very good draw. Interestingly, she finished a short head behind likely odds-on favourite, FORMATION in a feature over a mile on the sand behind Rivulet in April and is now 1kg better off. She will come into this contest fit and ready and clearly represents the value in the race.
