Timeform provide three South Africa bets on Monday

Timeform pick out three bets from Durbanville on Monday, New Year's Day.

"He has won two of his fifteen starts, both at Kenilworth over seven furlongs but he has more than enough speed to cope with the move back to this trip and may even improve for it."

Oh Behave - 13:02 (GMT) Durbanville

Oh Behave is a spot of value here and can beat stable companion Hooves Of Thunder at these weights. He has won two of his fifteen starts, both at Kenilworth over seven furlongs but he has more than enough speed to cope with the move back to this trip and may even improve for it. Dropped a tempting 4 lb by the handicapper after a five length ninth over a mile last time, Oh Behave may even make the running here and could take some catching if he does.

Meraki - 14:12 (GMT) Durbanville

Meraki has been found a very weak maiden by trainer Candice Bass-Robinson to get off the mark this afternoon and unless either of the newcomers are anything special, this should be a straightforward task. Meraki struggled to see out the mile at Kenilworth last time out, but the drop back to this trip should suit and a repeat of his earlier third to Run Red at the same track could be enough.

Dynasty's Blossom - 14:47 (GMT) Durbanville

Dynasty's Blossom must have been frustrating Joey Ramsden considerably with a run of top four finishes without a win to date, but this looks to be her best chance yet to get her head in front. A daughter of the great Dynasty out of a Danehill Dancer mare she has a future in the breeding paddocks regardless, but can win a race or two before then. Last time out she was only third to First Swallow over a mile at Kenilworth, running on after the race was over, and upped to this trip, Dynasty's Blossom has her best chance of success yet.
