Timeform select the three best bets from Turffontein on Saturday...

"...a repeat of that effort should see her very difficult to beat."

Timeform on Strada Statale

#7 Strada Statale - Turffontein R7 (15:00)

Strada Statale showed much improved form to run out a four-length winner over this course and distance last time, and a repeat of that effort should see her very difficult to beat. Catellano has been running creditably this term and could be the one for second, while Destinys Game makes up the shortlist.

#9 Fired Up - Turffontein R8 (15:30)

Fired Up produced a career best to win over this course and distance in July, and though he couldn't back that up under similar conditions last time, this looks a slightly easier assignment, and he is taken to quickly bounce back to winning ways. Soldier On appeals as the chief threat, while Divine Odyssey could also be worth a second look.

#11 Somasonic - Turffontein R9 (16:05)

Somasonic is by far the least exposed and most inexperienced in this field, winning on his sole run over this course and distance last month, but that race has already produced a subsequent winner, and, having snuck in at the bottom of the weights for his handicap debut, he demands plenty of respect. Ululate arrives here on the back of a hat-trick and could prove the biggest threat, while Etched In Blue also demands closer scrutiny.
