Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 3: TEQUILA MAN(8)
Jockey: G Wrogemann  - Trainer: P Matchett 

With exactly half this field of a dozen juveniles being unraced, the betting market should be a good indicator, particularly with regards to the de Kock trained import WAQAAS. This bay son of Sepoy is out of a Zabeel mare and he is the half-brother to the once promising two-time winner Al Fahad. That said, the first selection goes to TEQUILA MAN who should quickly bounce back to form over this sprint trip. He caught the eye over a similar distance in his penultimate run.

Race 4: BULLSADE(1)
Jockey: R Danielson  - Trainer: R Magner

BULLSADE has had a dozen opportunities but has found her form again and she can get it right today. The Sage trained DUNAS DOURADAS prefers sprinting and she returned to form when she tired late to finish a neck in front of the top selection over this c & d a fortnight ago. She won't wear blinkers today but is an obvious threat. The first timers should again be closely monitored in the betting exchanges with the juvenile pairing of OPERETTA and STRAWBERRY MIST the pick of them. 


Race 6: VARIMAX(3)
Jockey: L Hewitson   - Trainer: M G Azzie

VARIMAX had a sudden form return when he produced an eye-catching last effort over an extra furlong despite noticeable issues. Interestingly, he returns from an eleven week absence but should easily cope with this minimum distance and he can go one better.

Race 8: DAN THE LAD(2)
Jockey: M Khan   - Trainer: P Matchett 

DAN THE LAD showed signs of a form return in a competitive but slow run mile contest recently and the bay gelding drops in class over a much more suitable trip today. The four-year old continues to steadily dip in the merit ratings and he should give a very good account of himself. 


Race 7: HOT AUGUST(2)
Jockey: R Munger  - Trainer – Nieuwenhuizen

HOT AUGUST needed his comeback run in stronger company last month and the well-related entire' should strip fitter here. It could pay to follow his latest formline in the prior event and this son of Var can bounce back to form.
