Timeform on Fired Up

Timeform bring you the three best bets from Turffontein on Saturday...

#8 Fired Up - Turffontein R7 (14:35)

Fired Up has been improving with each run this term, culminating in a career-best performance that saw him get off the mark for the season over this course and distance in July. A repeat of that performance should see him very difficult to beat. Saragon has a good record at this venue and appeals as the chief threat, while Zouaves makes up the shortlist.

#2 Just Kidding - Turffontein R8 (15:10)

Just Kidding hasn't won since last summer, but she has found just one too good on her last two outings, and looks to be working up to a big run. Strada Statale has been consistent this term and gets the vote for second, while Comet Crystal looks a solid each-way option.

#9 Pretty Jolly - Turffontein R9 (15:45)

Pretty Jolly resumed winning ways at this venue last month, beating home a couple of next-time-out winners, and though she ran below form at the Vaal last time, she has a good chance on the pick of her form, and there looks to be enough in her price to warrant chancing her again. Piccadilly Square looks the pick of the remainder, while Fly North can win the battle for third.
