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

"...should be more of a force now returned to Greyville where she was third back in August."

Timeform on Silky Speech

SILKY SPEECH - Greyville R1, 12:15 BST

The Andre Nel-trained SILKY SPEECH could take plenty of beating. She wasn't able to live up to her prominent place in the betting when beaten at Scottsville last time, but should be more of a force now returned to Greyville where she was third back in August. Valeriana could emerge as the main danger, while Little Winter might be tough to keep out of the minor places.

COYOTE GIRL - Greyville R2, 12:50 BST

COYOTE GIRL came up short when favourite last time, but edges it as the selection once again. A repeat of her previous second to Dewali at Turffontein should be enough to see her land a first win. Just Dixit is the most prudent second choice, while Fives Wild should also be considered.

ROY'S NOVICE - Greyville R3, 13:25 BST

The experienced four-year-old filly ROY'S NOVICE's recent form just about edges this but she has little leeway if anything goes wrong. She has been placed in 11 of her 14 starts and should give another bold showing. Champagne Gold is the most realistic second preference, while Adorned By Beauty is the other candidate for the three.
