Timeform pick out three bets from Turffontein on Saturday.


Mustaaqeem - 12:15 (BST) Turffontein

Mustaaqeem looked straight out of the top drawer when well backed on his debut over course and distance, cruising home at odds of 8/10 by an easy seven and a half lengths. The fourth and eighth both won next time out to frank the form and Mustaaqeem can only improve for that experience for master trainer Mike de Kock, and could be pretty special.

Heavenly Blue 14:00 (BST) Turffontein

Heavenly Blue may well make it a Mike de Kock double on the card after winning his last race in the Grade 1 S A Classic here over nine furlongs last time out by around three lengths from Al Saham, and he will make a bold bid to follow up as long, as he stays this extended trip. On running style and breeding he may even improve for it, however, and Heavenly Blue is defintely the one they all have to beat this afternoon.

Trip To Heaven 14:35 (BST) Turffontein

Trip To Heaven has every chance of winning this prestigious prize if he can hold off stable-companion Carry On Alice who he has to give five pounds to again this afternoon. He did finish a quarter of a length behind his rival last time out at Kenilworth when a beaten favourite, but looks to have the better of the draw this afternoon in this field, so looks the one to beat.
