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

"He can convert his recent good run of form into a win"

Timeform on Drop Kick

Drop Kick - Vaal 11:55

Whilst Drop Kick was beaten at odds-on here in July, he's been running really well at this level of late, and is the one to beat in form terms. He can convert his recent good run of form into a win, ahead of Flattley, who is just about preferred for second, while Limestone Mass may be the one for third.

Highlander - Vaal 12:30

Highlander is on a roll at the moment, and his recent runs have had a lot to like about them, finishing in the frame in each of his part three starts. He's giving signals that his turn is near, and gets the vote to score. War Legend gets the vote for second, while Tapenzee looks best of the remainder.

Lalia - Vaal 13:05

Lalia has shown enough to suggest that she is up to winning a race of this nature, and she gets a narrow vote to get off the mark after producing a career best to finish third at Turffontein last time. Doreen Falls also commands a second look, as does One Dollar Massage.
