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

#5 WINTER IS OVER - Durbanville R4 (14:55 BST)

WINTER IS OVER was a good second on his most recent outing over C&D and may not need to improve on that form to go one better and open his account. Azores and Morse could be the ones to give the selection most to do.

#3 MACTHIEF - Durbanville R5 (15:30 BST)

MACTHIEF hasn't looked back since his debut at Kenilworth, and with further progress on the cards, he looks sure to mount a bold hat-trick bid now starting out in handicaps from a potentially lenient mark. Seventh Gear and Savvy are feared most.

#1 PACIFIC TRADER - Durbanville R7 (16:40 BST)

PACIFIC TRADER was a Grade 1 winner at Turffontein last time and looks sure to take all the beating if arriving in the same sort of form after five months off. What A Winner and Celestial Storm are others who might have a say.
