South African racing fans have two excellent meetings to enjoy again this Saturday, with big races coming to us from Turffontein and Kenilworth. 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.

Turffontein Tips - Saturday 10th July

Race 2 - MANTERIO (2)

MANTERIO has good consistent form lines to his credit. He tries the 2600m for the first time which should be right up his alley. The son of Oratorio should shed his maiden tag this afternoon. enclosure. 

Race 5 - TIME SPIRIT (3)

TIME SPIRIT is the best bet on the card. He was ultra-impressive when winning his maiden over this distance on the Vaal Classic course. The son of What A Winter takes on much stronger today, but he looks to have ability and should be up to the task at hand. He is drawn in pole position which is a big plus.

Race 6 - IDEAL ANGEL (1)

IDEAL ANGEL is much better than her last start over this distance on the Standside course. She was an impressive winner in her two starts prior to that outing. The daughter of Ideal World takes a drop in class this afternoon and with Lyle Hewitson in the saddle, she should be the one to side with.


WRITTEN IN STONE finished 1.1 lengths behind PUTINS PROMISE last time. He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. If jumping on terms, he can notch up his fifth career victory.


FROMHERETOETERNITY’S last three starts under 2.5kgs claiming apprentice Philasande Mxoli have been good. The daughter of Captain Of All takes a slight drop in class today and should return to winning ways.

Kenilworth Tips - Saturday 17th July

Race 4 - OCEAN WARRIOR (11)

OCEAN WARRIOR is the best bet on the programme. He made the natural improvement when finishing second over 1600m last time. He raced from a handy position that day and stayed on strongly at the business end. The son of Coup De Grace should love the extra furlong on offer today. He is a progressive type and should take a power of beating. 

Race 5 - NEXUS (1)

NEXUS is much better than his last start in the Grade 1 Vodacom Durban July. His form prior to that outing was good. He has won four times and finished second twice from seven starts over this C&D. If all went well with his travels back to the Cape, he should be too good for this field.


RAIN IN NEWMARKET finished 1.25 lengths behind PRETTY BETTY in the Listed Ladies Mile last time. She is 4kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. The daughter of Kingsbarns has a lot of class and can return to winning ways.

Race 7 - CAPITANA (2)

CAPITANA was given a peach of a ride when winning the Listed Olympic Duel Stakes last time. The manner in which she finished off her race that day was eye-catching. She has won three times and finished second twice from six starts over this C&D. Greg Cheyne takes the ride and she should notch up her sixth career victory. 

Race 8 - PHOTOCOPY (1)

PHOTOCOPY stumbled at the start last time and is much better than that effort suggests. He has won twice, finished second twice and third four times from eleven starts over this C&D. The 6yo gelding continues to drop in the ratings and with Luyolo Mxothwa in the saddle, he may be the one to cause the upset. 



Time Spirit (Race 5) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Turffontein. Over at Kenilworth, Ocean Warrior (Race 3) is the NAP of the day.

Turffontein Tips July 17th - NAP Of The Day: Time Spirit Straight Win @100.00 at BetMGM - 15 Units
Kenilworth Tips July 17th - NAP Of The Day: Ocean Warrior Straight Win @125.00 at PlaySugarhouse Sport - 15 Units
