Timeform on In The Game

#14 IN THE GAME - Vaal R6 (13:40 GMT)

IN THE GAME has run several good races recently and could prove hard to catch. He has winning form at the Vaal and can get the better of At Hand, who looks competitive on form, and Podcast, who cannot be ruled out on his first run for a new yard.

#3 FLY AWAY - Vaal R7 (14:20 GMT)

FLY AWAY produced a career-best performance to win over course and distance 30 days ago and that form is just about the best on offer. Tropic Sun has won her only race this year and rates as the clear danger to the selection.

#2 BIG BLUE MARBLE - Vaal R8 (14:55 GMT)

Course-and-distance winner BIG BLUE MARBLE got back on track on his latest start when not beaten far and he looks to be well handicapped here. He is the one to beat and gets the nod over Battle Creek, who is a three-time course-and-distance winner.
