Timeform pick out their three best bets from Turffontein on Thursday...
"...the form he has shown is a long way clear of the others in this maiden."
Timeform on Smart Deal
Fararanga has been knocking on the door of late, putting in a good effort to finish second at Vaal last time. She boasts the strongest form in this field and gets the vote to get off the mark. Andiamo is another who should take a hand, while Tidal Tussle might be tough to keep out of the minor places.
Whilst Smart Deal disappointed here last time, he had been fairly consistent prior to that, and the form he has shown is a long way clear of the others in this maiden. He's taken to get off the mark, ahead of Mantracker.
Whilst Secret Captain was a beaten favourite at Vaal last time, that was a competitive race, and he's generally been holding his form well this year. This race looks easier, and he is taken to get a deserved success. Lord Silverio is flying at the moment and can take second, while Killua Castle might well have a say as well.
