Timeform on Captain's Darling

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

#6 Kamadeva - Durbanville R1 (12:15 BST)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type and Kamadeva has shown enough to suggest he is up to winning a race of this nature. He should appreciate this step up in trip and should prove too strong for the likes of Hubble and Double The Fun.

#6 Captain's Darling - Durbanville R3 (14:30 BST)

Captain's Darling shaped with plenty of promise on debut when finishing third over this C&D three weeks ago, and she seems sure to have derived plenty from that experience. She looks the one to be with here, with the more exposed Philomena feared most, ahead of Hollywood Belle.

#4 Apollo Ace - Durbanville R7 (16:00 BST)

Apollo Ace made a winning start to the year over this trip at Kenilworth in February and followed it up with a good second-place finish over this C&D on his next start. He can be forgiven his latest effort over further and much better is expected now back at the minimum trip.
