Timeform on Darkest Hour

#5 GLOWTORIA - Vaal R5 (12:50 GMT)

GLOWTORIA has demonstrated plenty of ability in four outings to date and could prove a different proposition now switching to handicaps from a potentially lenient mark. Malteza is next best ahead of Leading Fast.

#3 ROCK OF AFRICA - Vaal R6 (13:25 GMT)

ROCK OF AFRICA has finished close up on his last couple of starts and won't need to step up much on those efforts to play a leading role again here. Lone Survivor and Pidgeon Rock are others to note in the absence of Tokyo Drift.

#8 DARKEST HOUR - Vaal R7 (14:00 GMT)

DARKEST HOUR was a decisive winner of his most recent outing at this venue and looks sure to mount a bold follow-up bid if arriving in the same sort of mood. Hidden Agenda and River Jordan head the list of dangers.
