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

"...he looks to have an excellent chance of opening his account."

Timeform on The Honey Badger

The Honey Badger - Turffontein R3, 15:20 GMT

The Honey Badger has been running well of late, and his effort to finish third at Turffontein last time was a career best. On these terms, he looks to have an excellent chance of opening his account. Smart Deal was another who hit the frame last time out and is respected, while Flapjack is another to consider.

Baahir - Turffontein R4, 15:55 GMT

Baahir is now 11 lb lower than his last winning mark, and with his most recent start here last month looking a step back in the right direction, he's fancied to take advantage of his weight to return to winning ways.

Throng - Turffontein R5, 16:30 GMT

Throng has been running well in better races than this last year, and he will take all the beating if able to bring his best form to the table. Norland was a solid third over C&D last time and rates as the biggest threat.
