Timeform pick out their three best bets from Turffontein on Thursday...

"...she is fancied to go one place better in this line-up..."

Timeform on Ottawa

#4 Ottawa - Turffontein R3 (13:05 BST)

Ottawa has made a promising start to her career, filling the runner-up spot on her last two starts, and she is fancied to go one place better in this line-up. Shezashiningstar makes some appeal on paper and could prove the biggest danger on debut in what doesn't look the strongest race of its type.

#6 Kilrain - Turffontein R4 (13:40 BST)

Kiltrain was a winner at this course (over further) earlier in the year and he has held his form well since. His latest fourth over a mile here last time sets the standard and he should prove a tough nut to crack back up in trip. Bankable Teddy makes most appeal of the remainder.

#8 Forest Express - Turffontein R6 (14:50 BST)

Forest Express made a winning debut here last year, and she arrives here in good form having finished placed on her last three starts. She is well worth another try over this longer trip and she looks the one to beat on form. Big Parade heads the dangers.
