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

"...a repeat effort would make her very difficult to beat."

Timeform on It Takes Two

It Takes Two - Vaal R1, 10:20 GMT

It Takes Two produced her best effort yet to finish second over a furlong shorter here last time out, and a repeat effort would make her very difficult to beat. Minona is another who took a step forward last time out and is the danger.

Sea Venture - Vaal R2, 10:55 GMT

Sea Venture is still a maiden after six starts, but she's been holding her form really well, and this looks a really good opportunity for her to get off the mark. Magic First and Take My Word are the biggest threats.

Brookie - Vaal R3, 11:30 GMT

Brookie produced a career best to return to winning ways over a furlong shorter at Flamingo Park last time out, and he can't be opposed in this arriving on excellent terms. Shanghai Pierce is the biggest threat, though he would need to be at his best to trouble the selection.
