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

"...won over C&D last time fairly cosily and with him topping our weight adjusted ratings, he rates as a strong chance to go in again."

Timeform on Lake Kinneret

#7 Kamakura - R6 Vaal (14:25 BST)

A very open contest but Kamakura looks the one to be with based on his fourth last time out over an insufficient trip. He steps back up to a mile and half here and with that in his favour, can take all the beating. Village Deep looks like posing the biggest threat, ahead of Flirty Girty.

#3 Lake Kinneret - R7 Vaal (15:05 BST)

Lake Kinneret won over C&D last time fairly cosily and with him topping our weight adjusted ratings, he rates as a strong chance to go in again. Unagi and Puget Sound look set to scrap it out for second in a tight contest, with a case able to be made for most.

#9 Brigtnumberten - R8 Vaal (15:40 BST)

Brigtnumberten was backed into favouritism last time out and despite letting his backers down that day, he still rates as the most likely winner in this sprint contest. He drops a furlong in trip and can take this prize at the expense of Moon Warrior.
