Timeform pick out their three best bets from Aqueduct on Sunday evening...

"...looked a good prospect when making a winning debut at Belmont in September..."

Timeform on Vekoma

#8 EMPIRE OF WAR - Aqueduct R4 (18:47 BST)

EMPIRE OF WAR improved for the switch to turf when getting off the mark at Belmont last month and should prove a tough nut to crack in his follow-up bid with further progress on the cards. Fellow last-time-out winners Order And Law and A Thread of Blue are feared most.

#5 VEKOMA - Aqueduct R8 (20:47 BST)

VEKOMA looked a good prospect when making a winning debut at Belmont in September and is fancied to take this step up in grade in his stride, with the longer trip expected to suit on that evidence (never stronger than at the finish). Chad Brown has a strong team of juveniles and his U S Navy Cross heads the list of dangers on the back of a promising debut win of his own.

#3 WALK OF FAME - Aqueduct R9 (21:17 BST)

WALK OF FAME was no match for the winner when last seen at Saratoga in August, but that still represented arguably the best effort of her short career to date and, down markedly in grade here, she is expected to take all the beating if repeating it. Super Mama is feared most.
