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

Rocky Path - Vaal R7, 14:45 BST

Rocky Path was too bad to be true when down the field over C&D last time, but he'd been holding his form really well prior to that and looks worth chancing to return to winning ways now that he's been dropped an additional 2 lb by the assessor. Chainsaw and Mount Keith head the opposition.

No More Words - Vaal R8, 15:20 BST

No More Words produced a really solid effort to finish fourth over C&D last month after a 67-day break, and she's chanced to build on that by returning to winnings ways in this open-looking affair. Illegal is closely matched on form and is respected, while Kirkconnel Lass is another to consider.

Great Prosperity - Vaal R9, 15:55 BST

Great Prosperity is winless in 17 starts to date, but she's been steadily heading in the right direction of late, hitting the frame the last twice, and this looks a good opportunity for her to open her account. Birthday Boy and Sunburst head the dangers.
