Timeform pick out three bets in South Africa on Wednesday

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

"...she looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark in this weak maiden."

Timeform on Fuyu

Bells Apostle - Greyville R1, 10:50 BST

Bells Apostle has been holding her form here well of late, and a repeat of her recent efforts here, including when third three starts ago, could well be enough for her to open her account. Tiago Real is still unexposed after three starts and rates as the biggest danger.

Captain Von Trapp - Greyville R2, 11:25 BST

Captain Von Trapp is a solid performer for the level, and the form he has shown to date gives him narrow preference to record his first win for two years. He's the pick, ahead of Rockcliffe, who followed up a win here in July with a solid run to finish fifth last time. J J's Captain could also figure.

Fuyu - Greyville R3, 12:00 BST

Fuyu's most recent effort to finish second at Vaal last time was her best effort to date, and she looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark in this weak maiden. Crown Charka is a clear second preference, while Watchmego is another to consider.
