Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: CAMEL WALK(3)
Jockey: S Khumalo   - Trainer: D St John Gray

CAMEL WALK was somewhat disappointing when he only managed a weak 4th over an extra furlong recently but the runner-up Chapel Jive and 3rd placed finisher Mr Tinsel lifted that formline with smart subsequent victories. Of course this bay colt showed smart potential prior to that and he produced his career best effort over this track & trip in his penultimate showing. He tries the turn from a wide draw but should be highly competitive with his top jockey in the saddle.

Race 4: DREAMSAREMADEOF(2)
Jockey: L Hewitson  - Trainer: J Janse van Vuuren

DREAMSAREMADEOF is seldom beaten far and reverting to sprinting, equipped with blinkers could be ideal for the imported chestnut filly who jumps from a decent draw today. Of course she is back facing her own sex now.

TOP BET

Race 5: CAPTAIN CHIPS(2)
Jockey: R Simons   - Trainer: A Laird 

CAPTAIN CHIPS was given a good ride when he narrowly won a similar event over six furlongs on this course recently and the veteran campaigner is equally capable over this extra distance. He was handed a three pound penalty for his exertions but the six-year old will be cherry-ripe and he has strong claims of following up.

Race 7: BUFFALO BILL CODY(2)
Jockey: R Simons   - Trainer: M De Kock 

BUFFALO BILL CODY had a sensational recent sprint victory on a tight circuit and the imported bay colt appears to have a bright future. He is best-weighted in this Progress Handicap for three-year olds and the son of Redoute's Choice is bred to relish this step-up to the mile. 

VALUE BET (EACH WAY) FOR TODAY:

Race 1: THE PINK PANTHER(11)
Jockey: J Sampson  - Trainer - T Spies

THE PINK PANTHER was fancied in both his fair efforts in the summer and the chestnut colt would have strengthened during the 16 week absence. His latest formline worked out extremely well during the interim with the runner-up Running Brave and 3rd placed entrant Affranchi winning subsequently.
