Timeform on Alramz

Timeform head to Vaal for their three best bets on Thursday...

#4 Green Top - Vaal R5 (13:30 GMT)

Green Top showed much improved form when a very good second at Turffontein recently and has to be taken seriously now stepped back in trip. Frosted Steel has not improved since her debut win but is still relatively unexposed and looks the main danger, while Cordillera can win the battle for third.

#13 Kisumu - Vaal R6 (14:05 GMT)

Kisumu ran a career best to get off the mark in a maiden at this course last month and looks to be a filly on the up. She has shown fairly consistent form this campaign and looks the one to beat in this contest. Miss Khalifa failed to build on her victory at Turffontein in September but has a chance on the pick of her form, while Fly North also commands a second look.

#6 Alramz - Vaal R7 (14:40 GMT)

Alramz's close third in a Greyville Grade 2 - a race that has produced four subsequent winners - sets the clear standard here and he is very much the one to aim at. Mr Whatson won over course and distance earlier in the year and looks the likeliest to chase home the selection, while Ring Of Fire is another that could go well.
