Timeform pick out three bets from Vaal on Tuesday.


Jameson Girl - Vaal 12:30

Jameson Girl has only won once from her eight starts when successful here in a C&D maiden in December last year, but has run some decent races in defeat and seems to save her best performances for this track. Two races ago she was beaten less than two and a half lengths here by Effortless Reward in a high-quality Class B handicap, and although less effective when fifth at Turffontein, she has two pounds less now and back at her favourite venue, she ought to return to winning ways.

Kitty Pryde - Vaal 13:05

Kitty Pryde does not stand out in this line up on form figures alone but a closer look shows that she was only beaten three and a quarter lengths last time out over shorter when running on late after meeting trouble in running at a crucial stage. The second third and seventh have all won since so the form has a way better than average look to it, and with Mike de Kock in good form of late and improvement likely for the step up in trip and drop in class, she ought to win her first race here.

Jubilee Line - Vaal 15:35

Jubilee Line is the highest rated contender for this Graduation Plate by six pounds and more and looks hard to oppose for trainer Scott Kenny. Last time out he finished a good second here over a furlong further on his last race for Mike de Kock before changing yards, and as this looks a far weaker race he may well get off the mark for his new connections at the first attempt.
