Vaal racecourse opens its gates to the public again today, with the first race set to go off at 10:00am (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 Races Tips - Thursday 27th January

Race 3 - VENERABLE (12)

VENERABLE showed very good improvement when finishing second over 1200m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville last time. He returns from a 17-week break, during which time he was gelded. The son of Silvano will enjoy the extra furlong on offer and if not in need of the run, should be the one to beat. 


DEFENDER OF RIGHTS produced a promising debut effort over this C&D, six weeks ago. She was slow into stride, outpaced but the manner in which she finished off her race was eye-catching. It must be noted that the horse that finished third that day has come out and won since. The daughter of Flower Alley would have come on from the run and with the natural improvement that is expected, she is the horse to beat.


WONDERING STAR won a good race when shedding his maiden tag over 1600m on this course. The son of Bezrin makes her Handicap debut, but he is lightly raced and has plenty of scope. 

Race 6 - ROGER THE DODGER (10)

ROGER THE DODGER produced a very good comeback run when finishing second over 1200m on this course. He raced from just off the pace, but was outrun in the latter stages. The son of Captain Of All meets a similar type of field today and should strip much fitter. He is the horse to beat.

Race 7 - SECRET GIVER (3)

SECRET GIVER ran on from last when finishing second over this C&D last time. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. The son of Philanthropist should strip much fitter today and can go one better. 


Defender Of Rights (Race 1) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Vaal on Thursday.
