Timeform on Crimson Castle

#8 Crimson Castle - Turffontein R7 (14:35)

Crimson Castle followed up her comfortable maiden success with victory in a Flamingo Park handicap in March, and though she hasn't quite been able to recapture that form in her two starts since the resumption, she is not without a chance and may have been overlooked by the market. Nazareth produced a career best to break her maiden last time and is of interest on her handicap debut, while Last Cheer also demands a second look.

#11 Lake Kinneret - Turffontein R8 (15:05)

Lake Kinneret brought up a double at the Vaal about this time last year and has looked in decent nick so far this season, his fifth at Greyville last time a particularly good effort. This represents a step back in grade for Lake Kinneret, who looks worth siding with at the forecast prices. Clever Guy also commands respect and could be the pick for second, while Approach Control is another with solid place claims.

#5 Tiger's Rock - Turffontein R9 (15:35)

Tiger's Rock has improved with each run this season and looks to be working up to a win. He finished a good fourth in a Vaal handicap back in March and may have been let in lightly on his return to action. Rock Of Africa could make his presence felt now stepped back up in trip, as could Var And Away, who has hit the frame in each of his last three races.
