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

"...a repeat of that run would make her very difficult to beat in this maiden."

Timeform on Samoa

Big Blue Marble - 11:45 Vaal

Whilst Big Blue Marble was a beaten favourite on his first start at Vaal last month, the fact that he was sent off such a short price suggests he is well thought of, and he sits clear of the field on form with that run now under his belt. Tarzan might be the answer to second spot, while Kelloholm Lad also commands a closer look.

Vida Es Bella - 12:20 Vaal

Vida Es Bella produced a promising debut effort to finish second at Turffontein at the beginning of the month, and the form of that run leaves her a considerable way clear of her rivals. As such, she gets the vote to get off the mark at the second attempt. Parental Control can get the better of the remainder, while Elbi also demands respect.

Samoa - 12:55 Vaal

Samoa made a promising start when finishing second at Turffontein on debut two weeks ago, and a repeat of that run would make her very difficult to beat in this maiden. Royal Future was fourth in the same race last time and is the other to focus on, while Bullsade also needs a second look.
