Timeform bring you the three best bets at the Vaal on Thursday.
"...he makes more appeal than most of these..."
Timeform on Fred
Sell High is a three-time winner at this course, including over course and distance, and finished a creditable third to Nimcha in a handicap here last time. The return to this shorter trip will be in his favour and he looks the one to beat on revised terms. Johnny Hero appeals most among the rest.
Fred was a good winner over a mile at this course at the start of the year and has held his form well since, arguably proving better than ever in a minor event last time. Up in trip, and back in a handicap, he makes more appeal than most of these, and seems sure to launch another bold bid. Afraad is most likely the main threat.
Glowtoria hasn't won since opening her account at the second attempt in 2019, but she is generally a consistent sort, and the balance of her form gives her an excellent chance here. Herstel can't be ruled out of it, though.
