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 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'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 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.
