Timeform on Anneka

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

#11 Santa Vittoria - Vaal R2 (11:45 GMT)

Santa Vittoria won a maiden at Turffontein last year and shaped well when finishing second back there after 156 days off last time, shaping as though she'd come on for the run. Better is expected now, and she can resume winning ways, likely at the main expense of Parisienne Chic and Yamoto.

#7 Anneka - Vaal R4 (12:55 GMT)

Anneka opened her account at this track over shorter last year, and has progressed with each start so far this time round. The form of her second-placed finish at Turffontein last time stands out in this line-up and she is fully expected to resume winning ways now. Rockin Russian has the strongest claims of the remainder, while Captain Of Tortuga shouldn't be far away, either.

#3 Danza - Vaal R5 (13:30 GMT)

It is hard to argue with Danza's consistency, not finishing out of the first two in his last six starts, including two wins. This looks a competitive contest but Danza seems sure to put his best foot forward again and earns the vote over Shogun and Full Mast.
