Timeform on Selfie

Selfie - 11:20 (BST) Flamingo Park

Selfie produced a career best two lengths second to Flying Falcon at Vaal early in the month with the rest strung out behind. The second, seventh, and ninth have all placed since to boost the form slightly, and if Selfie handles the sand as expected then she ought to find this company far easier to deal with.

Dragonair - 12:50 (BST) Flamingo Park

Dragonair continues to run well without success, with a two and a quarter length third to Summer Moon at Durbanville in March her latest placed effort. She failed to see out the nine furlongs that day looking pretty one paced, but dropped in trip for her sand debut, and on her first run for Stephanie Miller, Dragonair can get off the mark at the 11th attempt this afternoon.

Chief Sioux - 14:20 (BST) Flamingo Park

Chief Sioux has won four races so far from 54 starts and looked as if he was coming back to his best last time out here over C&D with a second to Call To Battle, giving the winner 10 lb and going down by two and a quarter lengths. Left on the same rating today, he has been found a very winnable contest by trainer Corrie Lensley and can win his fifth race at a track and surface he seems effective on these days.
