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

"...he is 3 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings on the back of that."

Timeform on Rock The Globe

Destinys Game - Vaal R1, 11:55 BST

Destinys Game has really upped her game of late, finishing second at Turffontein and Scottsville the last twice, and a repeat performance should be enough to see her open her account in what looks a weak maiden. Varquera is more unexposed than most and could figure, while Rachel is interesting on debut.

Fariha - Vaal R2, 12:30 BST

A race which seems likely to turn into a match race between Braxton and Fahira. Preference, though, is for the latter, who found the step up to Grade 2 company too much to handle at Turffontein last time, but has leading claims now pitched back into handicap company off just 3 lb higher than her last winning mark. Braxton would be dangerous if in the right mood, but has disappointed the last twice and has something to prove.

Rock The Globe - Vaal R3, 13:05 BST

Rock The Globe took a notable step forward from his promising debut when getting off the mark at Durbanville last month, and he is 3 lb clear of the field on the back of that. With the possibility of more to come from him yet, he is a confident pick to follow up. Ehsaan is another last time out winner who needs considering, while De La Cruz and Got The Greenlight are two more who enter calculations.
