Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Sunday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Scottsville on Sunday...

"...a repeat of that run could well see her take a weak affair."

Timeform on Linnger Longer

Kingdom Come - Scottsville R3, 11:50 GMT

Vinson sets the form standard on the back of his debut win at Greyville last month, but he's likely to be a firm favourite, and it could be worth taking him on with the more experienced Kingdom Come, who ran a solid race to finish third here on Boxing Day, and would be a big threat if able to reproduce his career best effort - when second over C&D back in June. Meanwhile, Daredevil Aviator may grab a bit of place money.

Play The Night - Scottsville R4, 12:25 GMT

Play The Night hasn't won for a good while now, but he hasn't been running badly of late and arrives here on a career low mark. As such, he's taken to get back on track at the expense of Captain Kangaroo, another who heads here on a basement mark. Farland was a winner last time out and it would be no surprise should he follow that up - for all that he has to concede weight all round this afternoon.

Linnger Longer - Scottsville R5, 13:00 GMT

Linnger Longer was a beaten favourite at Greyville at the beginning of the month, but that was her best run for a while and a repeat of that run could well see her take a weak affair. Leanna is perhaps the biggest danger after a reasonable run last time, whilst Steelheart wouldn't have to find too much to enter the argument.
