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

"Arriving here on the same mark as for her win at Turffontein five days ago, she's taken to win again."

Timeform on Regal Graduation

Sweet Pleasures - Vaal R3, 12:25 GMT

Sweet Pleasures' losing run stretches back to last April now, but she's been running well of late and a repeat of her most recent run, when second at Flamingo Park last month, would leave her well clear of the field on form. Phillydelphia can chase her home for second, while Concealed Secret is another who could take home some place money.

Just As I Said - Vaal R4, 13:00 GMT

A strong race for the grade, and one which can be won by Just As I Said. He produced a career best performance to win over C&D two starts ago, and he has leading claims of going in again. Exquisite Touch is another in good form at the moment and can take second, whilst Billy Silver looks booked in for third.

Regal Graduation - Vaal R5, 13:35 GMT

Regal Graduation is in good form at the moment, winning two of her last three starts, including over C&D back in November. Arriving here on the same mark as for her win at Turffontein five days ago, she's taken to win again. Desert Rhythm is a sound alternative, while Pool Party also merits respect.
