Timeform pick out their three best bets from Turffontein on Tuesday...

"...she is taken to pick up a deserved success."

Timeform on Fararanga

Fararanga - Turffontein R1, 12:00 BST

Fararanga produced a career best effort to finish second here last time out, and she is taken to pick up a deserved success. Bel Canto Chorus is the obvious danger, while See You Tyger looks best of the others.

Blossom - Turffontein R2, 12:35 BST

This looks a weak maiden, and as such it may be worth siding with the debutant Blossom, who makes plenty of appeal on paper and could be up to making a winning start. Dream On is the most interesting of those with experience, whilst fellow newcomer Memory Bliss is also worth a second look.

Rivonia Boulevard - Turffontein R3, 13:10 BST

Rivonia Boulevard is still a maiden after three starts, but he has shown some solid form so far, and with improvement expected, he is fancied to take advantage of a good opportunity. Shadow Man is a solid alternative, though he needs to shake off a below par run last time, whilst Verdi is another to consider.
