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

"That form already sets the standard in this line-up and he should be able to go one place better..."

Timeform on Herodotus

#8 Herodotus - Durbanville R3 (14:00 BST)

Herodotus made appeal on paper and shaped with plenty of encouragement on debut at Kenilworth three weeks ago, finishing a good second to one with more experience. That form already sets the standard in this line-up and he should be able to go one place better with improvement forthcoming. The Barrister and Caesura will likely prove the main dangers.

#9 Piracy - Durbanville R5 (15:10 BST)

Piracy has already won two times this season, both at Kenilworth, and he shaped better than the bare result when sixth back at that course last time, beaten four lengths. He just about sets the standard here and is expected to resume winning ways, likely at the main expense of River Cam, who finished a good third over further here last time.

#1 Clouded Hill - Durbanville R7 (16:20 BST)

Clouded Hill has made a very promising start to his career, winning both of his starts since his debut, and he looks ready for this step up in class. He should have too much in the tank for the impressive debut winner Pleasedtomeetyou, who should have much more to offer.
