Timeform on Ossetra

Ossetra - Vaal 14:05 (BST)

Ossetra may have only won a single race here on the classic track, but looked as if she was coming to hand last time out when a quarter length second to Moss Gas over C&D in March. Kindly left on the same rating, Alec Lairds' filly looks to have an outstanding chance.

Marmook - Vaal 14:40 (BST)

Marmook has plenty of speed to call upon as proved with wins at Turffontein and here over the minimum trip in July and November last year, as well as a good second in December. She failed to see it out over six furlongs here last time, but effectively dropped a pound and back over her best trip for the in-form Mike de Kock stable, Marmook has every chance of a third career success.

Pachuco - Vaal 16:20 (BST)

Pachuco needs a career best to win this, but with the Sean Tarry horses absolutely flying lately, all things are possible. He was third to Bush Pilot here after getting caught in traffic when beginning his run las time, and off the same mark, if he gets a better trip in this large field, he has a good chance.
