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

"The form of her runner-up effort over this C&D in July sets a good standard here..."

Timeform on Railtrip

#1 Chimichuri Run - Turffontein R4 (12:20 GMT)

This looks a golden opportunity for Chimichuri Run to record another win, his form somewhat of a standout in this field. He was an easy winner of a similar event here last time and the hat-trick is very much on the cards. Alyaasaat and Rule The Night can fight it out for minor honours.

#12 Railtrip - Turffontein R5 (13:00 GMT)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type, and it will be disappointing if Railtrip isn't able to record her second win of the year. The form of her runner-up effort over this C&D in July sets a good standard here and she should prove too strong for the likes of The Sash and Checkpoint Charlie.

#7 Life Is Good - Turffontein R8 (14:50 GMT)

This looks competitive, but Life Is Good gained reward for stringing a number of consistent efforts together when resuming winning ways last time, and this in-form sort is worth sticking with on first start for a new yard. Rebel's Champ and Isphan make most appeal of the remainder.
