Timeform pick out three bets from Turffontein on Saturday.

"The form of her effort to finish second at Vaal just over a week ago is comfortably the strongest on offer and she should win this with something in hand."

Timeform on Kick Butt

Kick Butt - 13:20 Turffontein

Kick Butt has been running consistently well at this level for a while, and this race looks the perfect opportunity to finally get her head in-front. The form of her effort to finish second at Vaal just over a week ago is comfortably the strongest on offer and she should win this with something in hand. Go Thuli Go could be the way to go for forecast purposes, but several could fill that accolade, including Snowballed, who is worth a look on debut.

Queen of War - 15:00 Turffontein

Queen of War is still relatively lightly raced, with seven starts so far, and her recent form suggests that she will get off the mark sooner rather than later. Her effort to finish fourth at Vaal last month was her best to date, and she looks the one to beat in a contest where very few make any sort of appeal. Big Smoke is interesting on debut, and may well grab some place money provided that he knows his job first time out.

Alnasl - 17:20 Turffontein

An open finale, where Alnasl is fancied to score. She has shown promise in her two starts so far, being reasonably well-supported in the market when finishing second at Vall on her most recent start a fortnight ago. A repeat of that effort should be more than enough to win this. The debutant Kate's Secret makes the most appeal in opposition, whilst Charity Queen isn't without a hope and can grab some place money.
