Timeform pick out three bets from Turffontein on Tuesday.

"He has been put up another 3 lb for that effort and will need a career best off this mark to win, but he keeps on pulling out more when asked..."

Timeform on Rebuked

#2 Arikel - 12:45 (BST) Turffontein

Arikel was a big drifter before running way above expectations when a three-quarter length runner-up to I Like It at the end of March over this trip. Dianne Stenger's newcomers invariably improve for their debuts and if that is the case here then Arikel should prove hard to beat second time out.

#9 Awayinthewoods - 13:20 (BST) Turffontein

Awayinthewoods has run well in both races to date, finishing third here before filling the same position over six furlongs at Vaal last time out, running on to finish a length and a quarter behind the winner. The first race is working out well, with the second, ninth, and 13th winning next time out, but more importantly she steps up to the more suitable trip of a mile here, and that may well be what it takes to see Awayinthwoods come home in front.

#10 Rebuked - 15:35 (BST) Turffontein

Rebuked has already won four of his twenty starts but looked as if the next victory was just around the corner when only beaten a neck at Vaal over this trip early last month. He has been put up another 3 lb for that effort and will need a career best off this mark to win, but he keeps on pulling out more when asked, and won't be far away again with a clear run here.
