Timeform on The Bosbok

Timeform bring you three cracking bets from the Vaal on Thursday...

I Am Batman - Vaal R7 (15:05 BST)

I Am Batman continues to run creditably and should give backers a decent run for their money. Seventh Of June is the most pragmatic second option, while Defy Gravity also needs a second look.

Itsmydarlin - Vaal R8 (15:40 BST)

Itsmydarlin looks the one to be with at these weights and is expected to go close. My Elusive should be thereabouts come the business end, while Crystal Stream is another worth looking at.

The Bosbok - Vaal R9 (16:15 BST)

The Bosbok is running well enough to take this but has little margin for error. In For A Penny may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while Tough Choice is another with place prospects too.
