Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Sunday

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

"...she's up to winning a race of this nature..."

Timeform on Sea Venture

Sheik's Storm - Greyville R3 (12:10 GMT)

Sheik's Storm broke her maiden at this course around this time last year and bounced back to form when finishing second at Scottsville last time. She looks handily weighted here if able to build on that and is preferred to Spring Breeze and Flamenco Dancer.

Sea Venture - Greyville R5 (13:20 GMT)

This doesn't look the strongest race of its type and Sea Venture has shown enough so far to suggest she's up to winning a race of this nature. The form of her latest third place finish at Turffontein stands out in this line-up and she should prove too strong for the likes of Orient Express and La Duchesse.

Runaway Gal - Greyville R6 (13:55 GMT)

Both of Runaway Gal's wins have come at this course, and has some form at this trip, so there is reason to think she can resume winning ways now on the back of an encouraging effort over shorter here last time. Champenois can get the better of the remainder, while Raes' Dyna Jet has a good shout of a share of the minor money.
