Timeform pick out three bets from Vaal on Thursday.
"Last time out he was a solid enough length and a half third to Lock Him Up at Turffontein in a handicap over this trip..."
Kentucky Blue hardly stands out with a quick glance at her form figures, but she was only beaten a length and three quarters in to fifth in a blanket finish here over a furlong shorter in the middle of last month. A beautifully bred daughter of Dynasty out of an A P Indy mare, she ought to appreciate the step up in trip now, and if Kentucky Blue continues to improve, then this race ought to easily be within her abilities.
Supanova looks a spot of value in this field and may well have more to offer after an impressive length win here over course and distance last time out. The Leon Erasmus trained son of Mogok is worse off with runner-up Great Shaka but had a little bit left up his sleeve if needed that day, and at the early prices Supanova looks the value call to follow up with another win this afternoon.
Flexible Fugitive - 14:55 (GMT) Vaal
Flexible Fugitive represents the all-conquering Mike de Kock stable and although he is still a maiden after eight starts, his form stands out in this field. Last time out he was a solid enough length and a half third to Lock Him Up at Turffontein in a handicap over this trip, and dropped back in to maiden class here, Flexible Fugitive should prove very hard to beat.
