Magic Tips Best Bets

Race 2: MABONENG (4)
Jockey: Habib C – Trainer: Fortune A

MABONENG showed good improvement in her last start over 1400m. She stayed on nicely at the finish that day but found one too good in the form of Terra Time. The daughter of What A Winter looks progressive and should enjoy the step up to the mile. If keeping on a straight line, she should be the one to beat. 

Race 4: ARIZONA LADY (4)
Jockey: Lerena G – Trainer: Janse van Vuuren

ARIZONA LADY has good consistent form lines to her credit. She has finished second once and third once from as many starts on this course. She gets the blinkers fitted for the first time which should keep her mind on the task at hand. She is likely to race on the speed and may be hard to peg back.



Race 5: REUNION (1)
Jockey: Lerena G – Trainer: Peter P

REUNION is the best bet on today’s card. He showed his true ability when winning by 5.3 lengths over 2000m on the Turffontein Inside course last time. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The son of Flower Alley has a lot of class about him and should notch up his third career victory.

Jockey: Yeni M – Trainer: Azzie M

SOUTHERN SONG was an easy winner of her last start over this distance on the Turffontein Inside course. The manner in which she drew away from her opoosition was enye-catching. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. She received the maximum penalty for that victory, but has ability and should follow up. 



Race 7: LET THERE BE LIG (3)
Jockey: Mxoli P – Trainer: Peter P

LET THERE BE LIGHT has shown good signs of a form return in her last two starts against stronger. The daughter of Elusive Fort takes a drop in class this afternoon and with 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Philasande Mxoli retaining the ride, she may be the one to side with
