Winning Form Best Bets
Race 2: DRAGON FAY(2)
Race 4: VICTRIXIT(15)
Race 6: STORM SURF(9)
Race 9: OLYMPIC SPRING(13)
Race 1: EVERGREEN(3)
Jockey: Robbie FRADD – Trainer: Michael AZZIE
EVERGREEN found betting support on his fair debut over seven furlongs at Turffontein, five weeks ago. He was beaten into fourth, five lengths behind subsequent impressive winner Heart Of A Lion and would have come on considerably with that effort. He drops to maiden company today and holds strong claims, if he handles this track.
Race 2: DRAGON FAY(2) – TOP BET
Jockey: G WROGEMANN – Trainer: Roy MAGNER
DRAGON FAY has been costly to follow but he is in very good form and has been runner-up in his last three starts. He was beaten by a better horse over the mile last time but was coming back at the finish and that suggests that this extra furlong will suit him better. He has already proven himself on the sand and could take some beating here.
Race 5: HANG FIRE(4)
Jockey: Louis NHLAPO – Trainer: Brett WEBBER
HANG FIRE is much better treated in this handicap. He was unlucky not to have finished even closer than third, beaten 1.75 lengths by DENNIS THE MENACE over this c & d the last time he raced in a handicap. He now meets his conqueror on 1.5kgs better terms and can reverse the form from another good draw.
Race 7: DECAMERON(2)
The Mike Azzie pairing of DECAMERON and PANJO should dominate proceedings here and can complete the exacta. The former is the stable elect with Robbie Fradd up and gets the verdict to claim his fifth career win. The son of Almushtarak is in good form and is ideally c & d suited. However, he needs the perfect ride as he has only a short but very effective burst of speed. He was caught late by the latter over this c & d in his penultimate effort but is now 4.5kgs better off with his conqueror and should take some beating here.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 3: BERRYFIELDS(1) (Each Way)
Jockey: Menno MALHERBE – Trainer: Stanley FERREIRA
BERRYFIELDS takes on some promising youngsters and is improving. She only tired late from a wide draw over six furlongs on this surface last time and should be even better over this minimum trip down the straight. The form of her last start was franked by the runner-up and she could stake a serious claim in this field.
