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

"...he remains a handicapper to keep on the right side..."

Timeform on Whorly Whorly

#7 Whorly Whorly - Turffontein R5 (12:45 GMT)

Whorly Whorly has made a brilliant start to the season, winning two of his four starts over similar trips, and he remains a handicapper to keep on the right side. Great Shaka looks best of the remainder, while Angel's Power should also run his race.

#7 Vine Street Star - Turffontein R6 (13:20 GMT)

Vine Street Star hasn't won for nearly two years but he shaped as though back in form at Vaal last time, better than the official result suggests. Therefore he is worth chancing in an open heat having slipped to a good handicap mark. Rock A Roll Dancer looks second best on balance, while Pool Party is another with place prospects too.

#7 Prince of Kahal - Turffontein R7 (13:55 GMT)

Prince of Kahal is a consistent type who has some solid form round here and, judged on his latest second-placed finish to Down To Zero here, he should be bang in the mix. Schippers should be involved at the business end as well, while Green Plains can win the battle for minor honours.
