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

"...left the impression that her turn could be near when finding only one too good at the Vaal last time..."

Timeform on Artemisia

#4 GIMMETHENIGHT - Turffontein R6 (14:13 BST)

GIMMETHENIGHT hasn't won since his debut here in 2017, but he remains relatively lightly raced for a five-year-old, with only seven starts to his name, and this looks a good opportunity for him to rediscover the winning thread now back down in grade. Johnny Hero is next best.

#6 ARTEMISIA - Turffontein R7 (14:48 BST)

ARTEMISIA left the impression that her turn could be near when finding only one too good at the Vaal last time, and she is taken to go one better this time round at the expense of Promise, who is an obvious danger in her four-timer bid, and Sammi Moosa.

#6 LADY LUCINDA - Turffontein R9 (15:58 BST)

LADY LUCINDA has hit the frame in each of her last four starts, including a pair of wins, and there is no reason why she shouldn't continue to give a good account. Levi Lady, Passion Peach and Jenny McGee are just three of several dangers, though, in an open heat despite the small field.
