Timeform pick out their three best bets from Durbanville on Wednesday...

"...he looks worthy of another chance in this company."

Timeform on Apollo Ace

Apollo Ace - Durbanville R1, 12:05 BST

Apollo Ace was beaten at short odds here last time, but the form he has shown so far is solid and he looks worthy of another chance in this company. Rob Roy is the pick of the rest, while the newcomer Augustina is worth keeping an eye on.

Winter Five - Durbanville R2, 12:40 BST

A weak maiden in which ready preference is for Winter Five, who is a long way clear on the form she has shown, and she can't be opposed in her bid to get off the mark. The newcomer Skidaddle could well turn out to be the biggest threat, ahead of Mumtaz.

Empire Rising - Durbanville R3, 13:20 BST

Empire Rising is in fine heart at the moment, and she produced an excellent effort to complete a double here last month. Her form claims are obvious and a bold bid for the hat-trick looks on the cards. Capaill was below par here last time but heads the dangers, whilst Star Angel deserves some consideration as well.
