Two of South Africa's premier racetracks will be under the spotlight today, with Kenilworth and Turffontein both hosting strong cards. To help you try and find a few winners, here's which horse's Magic Tips has tipped up on the HollywoodBets Blog this morning.

Kenilworth Tips - Saturday 26th June

Race 2 - BARZALONA (3)

BARZALONA was running on too late when finishing second behind the quality sort, Trip Of Fortune over 1200m last time. The son of Pomodoro will love the step up to the 1500m. He is a horse with ability and can return to winning ways. 

Race 3 - AMANZIMTOTI (3)

AMANZIMTOTI caught the eye when winning her maiden over 1200m. She was slow into stride, but won going away. The daughter of Trippi will love the extra 300m on offer today. She does take on stronger, but she looks to be above average and can follow up.


RAIN IN NEWMARKET has very good consistent form lines to her credit. She was slow into stride in the Listed Stormsvlei Stakes last time, but stayed on nicely to finish second. She has won twice and finished second three times from as many starts on this course. She is having her peak run this afternoon and with Grant van Niekerk in the saddle, she should win. 

Race 5 - PHIL’S DANCER (2)

PHIL’S DANCER is one of the better bets on today’s card. She showed good pace in her last start over this C&D and fought hard to notch up her fourth career victory. She has won three times, finished second once and third three times from seven starts over this C&D. The daughter of Philanthropist may be hard to peg back in the run down to the line.

Race 6 - MARINA (1)

MARINA is the best bet on the programme. She was ultra-impressive when winning the Listed Stormsvlei Stakes last time. The daughter of Silvano should have no issues with the extra 600m on offer today. She has plenty of class and should take a power of beating.

Turffontein Tips - Saturday 26th June


Johan Janse van Vuuren holds a strong hand in this contest with GREEN TAFFETY and CARTEL BOSS with preference for the former. She was ultra-impressive when winning on debut over 1000m on this course. It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. She found betting support which suggests that she had been showing good work back at home.

Race 2 - BON VIVANT(3)

BON VIVANT made the expected natural improvement when winning her second outing over 1200m on the Inside course. The daughter of William Longsword looks to have ability and with Gavin Lerena in the saddle, she should follow up. 


MITCH GOT HIS WISH stayed on nicely at the finish over this C&D against winners last time. That was his first outing as a gelding. The son of Admiral Kitten is back in Maiden Company this afternoon and with S’manga Khumalo back in the saddle, he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure.


BUREAU DES LEGENDE showed very good improvement when finishing second in her last start over this C&D. She challenged strongly all the way to the line, but found one too good in the form of Dance Lesson. The daughter of Legislate is having her second run after a rest today and should strip much fitter. With a bit of luck from her awkward draw, she should be the one to beat.


KINGSLEY’S HEART showed good signs of a form return in his last start over 1450m on the Vaal Classic course. He has won twice and finished second twice from five starts over this C&D. The gelding seems to have done the trick with the son of Ideal World and he can return to winning ways.



Barzalona (Race 2) is Magic Tips' best bet at Kenilworth today. Over at Turffontein, Mitch Got His Wish (Race 3) is the NAP!

Kenilworth Tips June 26th - NAP Of The Day: Barzalona Straight Win @300.00 at BetMGM - 15 Units
Turffontein Tips June 26th - NAP Of The Day: Mitch Got His Wish Straight Win @-175.44 at PlaySugarhouse Sport - 25 Units
