Vaal stages another good quality card on Thursday, with the first race set to go off at 11.55am (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.

Vaal Tips - Thursday 26th August

Race 1 - RUN AS ONE (5)

RUN AS ONE showed very good improvement when finishing second over 1400m at Turffontein last time. He stayed on nicely at the finish that day, but found one too good in the form of Forged By Fire. It must be noted that the horse that finished third has come out and won since. The son of Gimmethegreenlight will love the extra distance on offer and can go one better.

Race 3 - EPIC DREAM (3)

EPIC DREAM finished 1.5 lengths behind SINGFONICO last time. He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. He has won once and finished third twice from six starts over this distance. Gavin Lerena takes the ride and if jumping on terms, he should be the one to beat.


MASANGO MACHINE produced a typical second run after a rest in his last start over 1200m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. He finished 2.2 lengths behind SEEMYVISION in his penultimate effort. He is 5.5kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. He should be cherry-ripe and can cause the upset.

Race 7 - NOW YOU SEE ME (4)

NOW YOU SEE ME won an easy race over 1400m at the Vaal last time. She set the pace that day and won with a ton in hand. She has won once and finished second twice from five starts on this course. She takes a rise in class, but is in a good space and should notch up the hat-trick.

Race 8 - FLORIDA KEYS (5)

FLORIDA KEYS has good recent form lines to her credit. She was slow into stride last time, but ran on well to finish second. She is back against her own sex this afternoon and should take a power of beating. 


Run As One (Race 1) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Vaal on Thursday.
