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

"...he looks a good bet to get off the mark in this maiden."

Timeform on National Aim

National Aim - Turffontein R1, 11:25 BST

National Aim has had plenty of goes, and would need to shake off a poor recent run at Vaal, but in form terms he is a long way clear of the field, and he looks a good bet to get off the mark in this maiden. Corrido is tough to ignore for the places, while Brave Detail comes into calculations for third.

Monopolize - Turffontein R2, 12:00 BST

Monopolize's effort to finish second on debut here in September was a strong effort for the grade, and it's form which leaves him some way clear of the rest of the field in this weak maiden. He gets a confident vote to score this time around, ahead of Chipofftheoldblock and the newcomer Explorer.

Rosario - Turffontein R3, 12:35 BST

Rosario produced a solid first effort to finish third on debut over C&D five days a go, and a repeat of that run would be more than enough for her to get off the mark at the second time of asking - provided that this run doesn't come too soon for her.
