Vaal racecourse stages another good meeting today, with the first race set to go off at 11:25am (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 - Thursday 16th May

Race 2 - RODEO DRIVE (8)

RODEO DRIVE produced an eye-catching comeback run over 1160m at Turffontein. She should have won that day as she hung in the final 200m. The daughter of The United States would have come on from the run and she should strip much fitter. She should have no issues with the drop to 1000m and may be the one to beat.

Race 3 - WOLF MOUNTAIN (7)

WOLF MOUNTAIN is the best bet on the programme. He produced a promising debut effort over this distance on the Turffontein Inside course. He raced from just off the pace and tried hard all the way to the line. The son of Buffalo Bill Cody would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, he should take the power of beating.


GREEN LIGHTNING ran an encouraging race on debut over this distance on the Classic course. She raced from just off the pace and stayed on at the finish. The daughter of Potala Palace would have gained from the experience and with the natural improvement that is expected, she may be the one to side with.

Race 6 - ROYAL MAZARIN (6)

ROYAL MAZARIN has good recent form lines to his credit. He ran on from last when second over 1800m last time. He has won once, finished second once and third once from six starts over this C&D. Muzi Yeni is likely to adopt the same tactics from his wide draw of 11 and he will be mowing down the frontrunners.

Race 7 - FUSHIMI INARI (2)

FUSHIMI INARI‘S last two starts over further have been fair. He has won once and finished second twice from four starts on this course. He finished second in his only attempt over this distance. He continues to drop in the ratings and Gavin Lerena may be able to get the best out of him where it matters most.


Wolf Mountain (Race 3) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Vaal on Thursday.
