Fairview racecourse hosts their second meeting of the week today, with the first race set to go off at 11:35am (UK Time). To help you try and find a few winners, here are Magic Tips' South African Horse Racing selections for today.

Fairview Tips - Friday 17th May


PROJECT RUNWAY has produced three good efforts to date. She showed pace on the turf last time, but did not go on with the effort. She gets the blinkers fitted for the first time which should keep her mind on the task at hand. The daughter of Lancaster Bomber meets the right field and she can shed her maiden tag.

Race 2 - GOLDEN LINK (3)

GOLDEN LINK ran a good race when second in his last start over 1200m on this course. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The son of Gold Standard should love the rise to 1400m. He gets the tongue-tie fitted for the first time which may do the trick. He meets the right field today and can go one better.

Race 4 - SLAINTE MHATH (8)

SLAINTE MHATH was doing his best work late when third in his last start over 2000m on this course. It must be noted that Woman’s World has come out and finished second in the Listed TAB East Cape Derby since. The son of Duke Of Marmalade takes on weaker opposition this afternoon and if repeating that effort, he may find himself in the winner’s enclosure.

Race 6 - ARTURO (6)

ARTURO fought hard when second in his last start over this C&D. He has won once, finished second twice and third once from six starts over this distance. He carries another handy galloping weight of 54kgs and can go one better.


PASSCHENDAELE stayed on when fifth over 1200m on the turf last time. She won a good race in her penultimate effort over this C&D. The daughter of Querari may be at her best on this surface and from her good draw of four, she should notch up her third-career victory.


 Golden Link (Race 2) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Fairview on Friday.
