Magic Tips Best Bets
Race 2: SHEZAHOTTI(4)
Jockey: P STRYDOM - Trainer: P MATCHETT
SHEZAHOTTI has been thereabouts in her improved recent performances and has strong claims with top jockey Strydom retaining the ride on the daughter of Irish Flame. DREAM ON has had lesser chances and the Pettigrew inmate has shown to be above-average after three highly creditable runs the debut of which was on this tight circuit. The daughter of Horse Chestnut is well drawn at gate 2.
Race 3: LIBERADO(2)
Jockey: D SCHWARZ - Trainer: G ALEXANDER
LIBERADO has promising recent form having finished runner-up in three of his last five starts but he could have been given a better ride last time out. He is drawn best of all today and the imported chestnut can make amends.
Race 6: SHUFOOG(8)
Jockey: R SIMONS - Trainer: M DE KOCK
The day's topliner is an intriguing affair where the lightly raced four-year old filly SHUFOOG is best weighted in her second effort this campaign. The de Kock inmate needed her comeback run in far strong- er company and will strip fitter now. Her track experience will stand her in good stead and she can easily bounce back to her promising earlier form before the setback.
Race 7: D' ARRIVEE(3)
Jockey: W KENNEDY - Trainer: C DAWSON
D' ARRIVEE looks tailor-made for this tight circuit due to his short but smart turn of foot and he expectedly went close in a high quality field over this distance three weeks ago but rather surprisingly escaped without a penalty. He drops in class today and can easily go one better.
VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:
Race 8: BRONX BOMBER(3)
Jockey: R DANIELSON- Trainer: A LAIRD
BRONX BOMBER is way better than his excusable last run a month ago and should bounce straight back to his earlier promise despite obvious quirks. The lightly raced four-year old made late headway for 3rd in stronger company over this c & d in his penultimate start and can take full advantage of a kind four pound dock in his merit rating
