Vaal racecourse hosts its second meeting in three days today, with the first race set to go off at 10:15am (UK Time). To help you try and find a few winners, here are Magic Tips' South African Horse Racing selections this morning.

Vaal Races Tips - Saturday 9th December

Race 1 - SECRET CHORD (2)

SECRET CHORD ran a good race when second over 1000m at Turffontein last time. He showed good speed, but was outrun late by Ethanator. The tongue-tie seems to have done the trick on the son of Bezrin. He meets the right field today and Muzi Yeni may be able to coax that little bit extra out of him where it matters most.

Race 2 - RED KNOT (16)

RED KNOT produced a promising debut effort over 1160m at Turffontein. She understandably was green in running, shifted to the inside of the track and finished off her race nicely. The daughter of Gold Standard would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she should be the one to beat in this line-up.

Race 6 - ON THE HORIZON (6)

ON THE HORIZON is unbeaten from three starts to date. She won a good race when returning from a 12- week break over 1600m last time. The daughter of Judpot should have no issues with the step up to 1800m. This is her toughest test to date, but she looks to be above average and can keep her unbeaten record intact.

Race 7 - UNZEN (10)

UNZEN ran a good race when third in his last start over 1400m at Turffontein, despite the jockey reporting something to be amiss. He is a horse with ability and should enjoy racing on the straight course. If putting his best foot forward, he is capable of winning a race of this nature.


THE AFRICA HOUSE ran a creditable race in the Grade 2 Jonsson Workwear Dingaans despite reported to be not striding out and fatigued. He was not disgraced when finishing fourth in his penultimate run in the Grade 3 Betway Graham Beck Stakes in his penultimate run. The son of What A Winter is the best-weighted runner in this contest and he should take a power of beating.


The Africa House (Race 8) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Vaal on Saturday.
