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

"...she has excellent claims if in the same mood here."

Timeform on Emerald Bay

Emerald Bay - Turffontein R3, 12:10 GMT

Emerald Bay hasn't won for almost a year, but her recent runs have been solid and she has excellent claims if in the same mood here. Glamorous Scandal won her best rest for a while when second here last time and is respected, whole Cranberry Crush is another to consider.

Aurelia Cotta - Turffontein R4, 12:45 GMT

Aurelia Cotta was a beaten favourite over a furlong shorter here last time out, but that was a good effort, and she has leading form claims of picking up a win in this company.

Mighty Rock - Turffontein R5, 13:20 GMT

Mighty Rock has improved with each of his three starts to date, and he took a big step forward when finishing second at Vaal last month. That effort leaves him a long way clear of the field on form terms, and he's fancied to strike at the fourth time of asking.
