Timeform pick out three bets from South Africa on Tuesday.

"He comfortably holds Changing Seasons on that run..."

Seattle Sound 11:05 (GMT) Kenilworth

Seattle Sound gets weight all round here as a three-year-old filly and that ought to be enough to tip the balance in her favour. Glen Kotzen's daughter of Sail From Seattle has won once from nine starts, breaking her maiden over the mile here in July, and was last seen finishing a running on fifth to Love Supreme here beaten just over two lengths at the line. With an added furlong now Seattle Sound has every chance of a second success and looks the value call in the circumstances.

Power Of Peace 11:40 (GMT) Kenilworth

Power Of Peace represents the in-form Joey Ramsden stable and ran a race full of promise on debut when a three and three-quarter length third to Milden Spell here over a furlong shorter when sent off a well-supported 16/10 chance. The son of Dynasty can only improve for that experience and is clearly held in high regard by his shrewd connections, and it will be a bit of a shock if Power Of Peace fails to build on that run with a victory here.

Saint Michael 13:10 (GMT) Turffontein

Saint Michael must have been showing plenty at home for trainer Paul Peter before his course and distance debut, sent off at odds of 9/2 from an opening 15/2 before finishing a highly respectable length and a half third to Takaduma, showing signs of inexperience before picking up the bit late on. He comfortably holds Changing Seasons on that run (who is also well-regarded) and with nominal improvement, Keagan de Melo should have little difficulty steering Saint Michael to the front this afternoon.
