Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Friday

Timeform head to Greyville for their three best bets on Friday...

"...beaten only narrowly on her most recent outing at Scottsville and drops in grade here..."

Timeform on Sanskrift

#3 AT YOUR REQUEST - Greyville R1 (15:00 GMT)

AT YOUR REQUEST is without a win from 11 outings to date, but she is the one to beat on ratings here and today could finally be the day that she sheds her maiden tag. Path To The Stars and Hopskipandjump are others who might have a say in proceedings.

#11 DUCHESS OF MALFI - Greyville R3 (16:10 GMT)

DUCHESS OF MALFI has finished just behind the principals on her last two starts at Kenilworth, most recently going down by less than three lengths, and she may not need to improve on that form to get off the mark here. Keep On Dancing is feared most ahead of Masters Beauty.

#1 SANSKRIFT - Greyville R8 (19:10 GMT)

SANSKRIFT was beaten only narrowly on her most recent outing at Scottsville and drops in grade here, so should take plenty of beating if arriving in the same sort of form. Someone Exciting and Diamondsandpearls can fight it out for the minor honours.
