Timeform pick out three bets from South Africa on Saturday.


OSTINATO 11:25 (BST) Kenilworth

Ostinato just goes from strength to strength with a fourth, a third and more recently a second to Angel's Trumpet here over course and distance. She was beaten five lengths that day and will need to do a little bit more here but this is not the strongest maiden ever seen, and Ostinato looks to have been found a suitable race by Glen Kotzen.

Varbration 13:10 (BST) Greyville

Varbration is a likeable sort with four wins already from his twenty-five starts and a solid recent effort when a length and a half second to Rocky Valley here two weeks ago. The form of that race is yet to be tested, but the son of Var shows plenty of speed and if he can break smartly enough and gets the run of the race it will take something special to stop Varbration with the excellent Gavin Lerena in the saddle.

Macduff 14:30 (BST) Greyville

Macduff seems equally happy over shorter and further for trainer Joey Ramsden but ran his best race yet last time out over seven furlongs when a nose second to Doosra here off his new handicap rating. Another stride or two and he would have won that day and with a furlong extra to travel, even the added pound from the handicapper may not be enough to stop Macduff winning his fourth contest here.
