"...she is just about the pick in this line up..."

Timeform on Illuminate

#7 Illuminate - Vaal R6 (14:45 BST)

Illuminate is on a losing run, but her recent runs have had a lot to like about them, and she is just about the pick in this line up. Emerald Bay is the most likely threat, while Earth Sky heads up those chasing third place.

#10 Alex The Great - Vaal R6 (15:15 BST)

Alex The Great hasn't been in the best form of late, but at his best he is more than capable of winning a race of this nature, and is worth chancing. Spanish Boy makes most appeal among the others, while Precious Stone is another that could go well.

#9 Phillydelphia - Vaal R7 (15:45 BST)

Phillydelphia proved at least as good as ever to win at Turffontein last time and is fancied to follow up. Spectral is probably the sternest opposition, while Path To The Stars is the tentative selection for third.
