Turffontein racecourse hosts a decent meeting today, with the first race set to go off at 10:20am (UK Time). To help you try and find a few winners, here are Magic Tips' South African Horse Racing selections for today.

Turffontein Tips - Tuesday 5th December

Race 2 - SMASHING (9)

SMASHING raced green but stayed on well when finishing fourth on debut over five furlongs, 2.5 lengths back from the winner. She would have gained from that experience and with the natural improvement that can be expected, she could be the one to side with here.


SPRING IN HEAVEN is a 3-year-old filly taking on males, but she ran on strongly when finishing second in her latest outing over a mile, just a neck behind the winner. She won over this C&D four runs back and will be hoping to do the same today, despite a wide gate nine.

Race 6 - SHARAPOVA (1)

SHARAPOVA was a model of consistency before taking an 11-week rest, finishing third in her last start over 1450m, 0.55 lengths back from the winner. She was bumped in that contest, so can be considered an unlucky loser. With Gavin Lerena up, she could make amends today.

Race 7 - SIMPLE SIMPLE (6)

SIMPLE SIMPLE set the pace and was reported to have made a respiratory noise when finishing fourth in her last start over seven furlongs, 3 lengths back from the winner. She drops in trip, but given her early gate speed, this should not be an issue and Richard Fourie is a bonus.

Race 8 - IN THE ETHER (13)

IN THE ETHER has been a model of consistency, having finished second in her last two starts over five furlongs, the latest 2 lengths behind the winner. She was running on smartly that day and should enjoy the extra ground of today’s contest.


Sharapova (Race 6) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Turffontein on Tuesday.
