"...he looks the value this morning..."

Timeform on Fort Agopian

Timeform provide three selections at Durbanville on Tuesday.

#4 Fort Agopian - Durbanville R5 (13:20 GMT)

Fort Agopian won back-to-back races at this course last year and returned to a similar level of form back in a handicap at Kenilworth last month. The return to this longer trip should suit given how he shaped that day and he looks the value this morning. Captains World could provide the toughest opposition.

#2 Lilac Sensation - Durbanville R6 (13:55 GMT)

Lilac Sensation proved better than ever to open her account on her first start last year and shaped particularly well when beaten by a narrow margin at Kenilworth last month. She started at 16/1 that day, so was seemingly expected to come on for the run, and she could prove a tough nut to crack now if building on that. Noble Rhythm may prove best of the remainder.

#6 Larentina - Durbanville R7 (14:30 GMT)

Larentina is on a lengthy losing run, but she is a two-time winner over course and distance, and is starting to look too well treated to ignore. She wasn't beaten too far last time, but has taken another drop in the weights, and the return to this trip will help. Walk of Fame could prove the biggest danger.
