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

#2 NOTQUITETHEREYET - Vaal R2 (12:55 BST)

NOTQUITETHEREYET appeals as the likeliest winner if reproducing the form of her latest third at Turffontein, with My Elusive and Au Revoir heading the list of dangers.

#9 SERENDIPITY - Vaal R4 (14:05 BST)

SERENDIPITY is proving nothing if not consistent and this looks a good opportunity for her to record career win number four. Samarra, Steady Way and Walnut Dash can battle it out for minor honours in a competitive heat.

#5 DANZA - Vaal R5 (14:40 BST)

DANZA failed to meet market expectations when only fourth here last time, but could be worth another chance with form comparable to any of these. Palace Chapel is feared most ahead of Torre Del Oro.
