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

"He has an impressive race record with five wins and three top four places from his eight starts."

Pearl Of Bahrain - 12:30 (GMT) Vaal

Despite being easy in the market, Pearl Of Bahrain put in a really promising debut when a running-on third to Carmalita at Turffontein. A daughter of Western Winter, she steps up in trip considerably now to what should be a far more suitable distance, and with nominal improvement, this race seems Pearl Of Bahrain's to lose.

Well Connected - 13:40 (GMT) Vaal

Well Connected has just one win from six starts (at Greyville on his debut), but ran well when a half-length second over a fraction shorter at Turffontein last time. Off the same mark here, Well Connected is the one to beat in what looks like a slightly weaker contest.

Green Pepper - 14:15 Vaal (GMT)

Green Pepper looks likely to be a spot of value in a very competitive looking Pinnacle Stakes. He has an impressive race record with five wins and three top four places from his eight starts. Last seen in May, we have to take his race-fitness on trust after eight months off, but after a two and three-quarter length fourth to Joan Ranger in the Grade Two Camellia Stakes, he has the form in the book to use this as a stepping stone to better events.
