Timeform pick out three bets from South Africa on Monday.


Wonderous Climber 11:45 (BST)

Wonderous Climber seems likely to outclass these for in-form trainer Sean Tarry and jockey S'manga Khumalo, and is a confident selection if he can improve on his highly promising second when less than a length behind Whorly Whorly here in early March. The winner has gone on to take a Vaal Juvenile Plate since then and Sean's Dynasty colt looks sure to on from there, and it will be a big surprise if Wonderous Climber fails to collect.

Walker 12:55 (BST)

Walker stands out on the form book after a debut fifth here standside over shorter and a respectable neck second to Brave Nomad when stepped up in trip last time out. He would have won in a few more strides that day and can be counted an unlucky loser. If Anton Marcus can stoke him up a little sooner this afternoon, Walker looks very difficult to oppose.

Seeking Venus 14:40 (BST)

Seeking Venus may seem a strange choice at first glance but she can be forgiven her last effort returning from a short break and in steel shoes which is rarely a positive sign. Alumite plates are back on now and she's been dropped two pounds by the handicapper upped in trip today, so Seeking Venus now has a sporting chance of a second career success.

Win back #8 WONDEROUS CLIMBER in R2 (11:45 BST)
Win back #5 WALKER in R4 (12:55 BST)
Win back #4 SEEKING VENUS in R7 (14:40 BST)
