Timeform pick out their three best bets from Vaal on Monday...

"...it wouldn't be a surprise if she found the bit extra needed to get her head in front here..."

Timeform on Mattina

#1 THE BRASS WAY - Vaal R4 (13:40 BST)

THE BRASS WAY was a bit disappointing at Turffontein last time, but his earlier form shows that he is better than that, and he would appear to hold sound claims of getting off the mark if bouncing back. Meeraas and Royal Siege are next best.

#12 MATTINA - Vaal R5 (14:15 BST)

MATTINA has been running consistently of late, including when fourth over C&D earlier this month, and it wouldn't be a surprise if she found the bit extra needed to get her head in front here. The Sash and Believe Me are others to note in an open heat.

#8 CROWN GUARDIAN - Vaal R6 (14:50 BST)

CROWN GUARDIAN wasn't beaten far when seventh at Durbanville last time, and he wouldn't need to step up much on that form to play a leading role here. Alwahash and Gimme A Wave can battle it out for the minor honours.
