Timeform pick out their three best bets from Turffontein on Saturday...

"...she would appear to hold sound claims of going one better for the in-form Duncan Howells stable..."

Timeform on Fiorella

#8 RIVARINE - Turffontein R6 (13:35 GMT)

RIVARINE made a cracking return from 11 months off when winning a listed handicap here last time and could be worth chancing to follow up. Procal Harum is taken to chase the selection home, while Isphan deserves some consideration too.

#2 FIORELLA - Turffontein R8 (15:25 GMT)

FIORELLA ran well when second in a minor event at Greyville last month, conceding plenty of weight all round, and she would appear to hold sound claims of going one better for the in-form Duncan Howells stable in this Grade 2. Al Danza and Roy's Riviera complete the shortlist.

#6 ARTE - Turffontein R10 (16:35 GMT)

ARTE is thriving at present and looks sure to give another good account over this longer trip than when a close-up second at Vaal last time. Secret Captain is the percentage call for second ahead of Tirzan.
