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

"...is becoming too well treated to ignore..."

Timeform on Now And Forever

Now And Forver - Vaal R7 (14:45 BST)

Now And Forever is on a lengthy losing run, and is yet to trouble the judge this year, but he shaped better than the bare result last time and is becoming too well treated to ignore. Sharp Gitano should be thereabouts come the business end, while Copenhagen deserves respect as well.

Tsitsikamma Bush - Vaal R8 (15:15 BST)

Tsitsikamma Bush made a winning return at Turffontein earlier this year and bounced back from some lesser efforts when a good second over six furlongs here last time. The drop back in trip won't be a problem now and he can get back on the up. Hartleyfour is the pick of the the others, while Moon Warrior also demands consideration.

Montreal Mist - Vaal R9 (15:50 BST)

Montreal Mist continued the theme of run-to-run progression when a close fifth at this course last time and, in a race that doesn't look as strong now, she is expected to open her account at the fourth attempt. Miss Samurai makes most appeal among the others, while Nazareth edges things for third first time up.
