Timeform on Beethoven

#11 Okavango Delta - Fairview R6 (14:15)

Okavango Delta had been knocking on the door in his recent runs, and duly regained the winning thread with victory here seven days ago. He has won over this distance in the past, so the step back in trip should not be an issue, and he looks to have the best credentials in this field. Lion King is significantly back up in trip and must enter calculations, while Torre Del Oro is another worth considering.

#9 Beethoven - Fairview R7 (14:50)

Beethoven has returned in flying form this season, winning two of his three races, including when producing a career-best performance to land a course-and-distance handicap earlier this month, and he should take all the beating in his bid to follow up. Twin Falls and Duke Of Cards look the pick of the remainder.

#11 Margot's Magic - Fairview R8 (15:25)

Margot's Magic has looked a little out of her depth in some more competitive events than this of late, but has still held her form reasonably well, and may be able to take advantage of having her sights lowered. Her Eminence may be the one to chase the selection home, while Cpatain's Choice is another with solid place claims.
