Before Kenilworth stages another fantastic renewal of The Cape Town Met on Saturday, Fairview stages another good card today, with the first race set to go off at 10:35am (UK Time). To help you try and find a few winners, here's which horses Magic Tips has tipped up on the South African Horse Racing HollywoodBets Blog this morning.

Fairview Tips - Friday 28th January

Race 2 - ZAMBAQ (2)

ZAMBAQ finished 2.5 lengths behind MISS NIBBLES on the polytrack last time. She is 3.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. She has won twice and finished second once from four starts over this distance. The daughter of Rafeef will enjoy the return to the turf and she should find herself in the winner’s enclosure. 

Race 4 - WINTER SCOUT (4)

WINTER SCOUT ran a good race when finishing third over 1700m at Kenilworth last time. The daughter of What A Winter won her only attempt over this distance. She jumps from pole position and if suited to the left-hand turn, she should have a good winning chance. 

Race 5 - NATIVE TONGUE (3)

NATIVE TONGUE has not finished too far off the winner in recent outings. He was far from disgraced when finishing fifth behind Hoedspruit in the Grade 2 Premier Trophy last time. The son of Master Of My Fate has won once and finished second twice from seven starts over this distance. From pole position, he is the horse to beat.


CAPTAIN TATTERS challenged strongly in his last start over 1400m at Kenilworth, but found one too good in the form of Russian Rock. It must be noted that the horse that finished third that day has come out and won since. He is having his peak run this afternoon and should be cherry-ripe. Richard Fourie steps back into the saddle and he should take a power of beating. 

Race 8 - STAR OF THE SOUT (3)

STAR OF THE SOUTH found betting support in his local debut over 1600m on the polytrack. He was his own worst enemy that day as he over raced in the early stages. He has won twice, finished second once and third twice from seven starts over this distance. The son of Dynasty will enjoy the return to the turf and if Greg Cheyne is able to switch him off early, he can return to winning ways. 


Captain Tatters (Race 7) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Fairview on Friday.
