Timeform pick out three bets from Turffontein on Thursday.


Kutamba - 12:30 (BST) Turffontein

Kutamba put in her best effort yet over this trip when a length and a quarter second to Opera at Vaal last time, with the front two pulling clear of the rest of the field to give the form a more solid look. The seventh has won since while the Leon Erasmus stable are ticking over nicely which is a bonus, and with Sherman Brown in the saddle Kutamba looks to have every chance of breaking her duck.

Like A Panther - 14:15 (BST) Turffontein

Like A Panther is a pretty obvious choice in this mile maiden for world renowned trainer Mike de Kock after two placed efforts, with a two length third followed by a two and a half length second, both here at Turffontein over seven furlongs. A daughter of Captain Al, she has been running on late and ought to appreciate the extra furlong here.

Cashel Palace - 14:50 (BST) Turffontein

Cashel Palace went in to many a notebook after her debut third here last month over seven furlongs, where sustained market support saw her backed from 10/1 down to 5/1 at the off. Despite showing signs of inexperience she picked up late on to put in a rattling finish and with an extra furlong again today, and that race under her belt, Cashel Palace looks hard to oppose.
