Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Wednesday

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

"...a repeat of that would make her very difficult to beat in this."

Timeform on Starlight

Starlight - Scottsville R3, 12:20 GMT

Starlight has had plenty of goes at shedding her maiden tag, but her most recent effort to finish second at Greyville three weeks ago was a big step forward, and a repeat of that would make her very difficult to beat in this. She's A Crusade has had just two starts to date and there could be more to come yet.

Pollard - Scottsville R4, 12:55 GMT

Pollard was beaten at a short price on his most recent start at Greyville at the beginning of the month, but that was still a solid run, and he can put his experience to good use against main rival, the once-raced Last Of The Legend. Father's Frost is another with place prospects too.

Star Vega - Scottsville R5 - 13:30 GMT

Star Vega produced an excellent debut effort to finish second at Greyville last month, and the form of that run leaves here clear in this lowly maiden. She should prove too strong for these and can score. Genereight can pick up some place money, while Lewa Downs is another who can hit the frame.
