Timeform pick out three bets from Turffontein on Thursday.


Star Profile - Turffontein 10:10

Star Profile will have to be just as good as connections think to take this maiden, which looks one of the better races of its kind. Quietly supported on her debut, she ran a blinder to finish a length second over this trip at Vaal earlier in the month and is entitled to improve with that initial experience under her belt. Trainer Corne Spies could hardly be in better form at present and his Star Profile appears to have the edge in a race that should throw up plenty of winners.

Red Rebel - Turffontein 11:40

Red Rebel has had a lot more chances than most in this field after 18 starts, but he has been placed on his three most recent outings and was only beaten three quarters of a length on the standside track here last time. The way he stayed on that day suggests this longer trip will see him in an even better light and, with the form best recent form to his name in this field, Red Rebel would appear to hold sound claims and is fancied to belatedly open his account.

Inkolo - Turffontein 14:40

Inkolo has suffered for her consistency with the handicapper leaving her mark unchanged for the most part, but looks to have been found a suitable opportunity to register the second victory of her career. The five-year-old mare has been placed in each of her last four starts and seemed to find the mile beyond her when fifth at Vaal earlier this month. This looks an even weaker contest and Inkolo will not find many better opportunities than this to regain the winning thread.
