Timeform pick out three bets from Vaal on Tuesday.


Lady Burn 12:20 (BST)

Lady Burn is possibly a risky suggestion first time out but she is a beautifully bred daughter of Fastnet Rock out of an Entrepreneur mare and is said to be tearing up the gallops ahead of her racecourse debut. Trainer Alec Laird has made no secret that he thinks she is well above average, and with the yard in good sorts and Anton Delpech booked to ride, Lady Burn can win at the first time of asking here.

Pilou 12:55 (BST)

Pilou has the best form on offer here by some margin and is difficult to oppose. Trainer Sean Tarry has his horses in good form while S'manga Khumalo is also in good heart, while the son of Western Winter has four places from five career starts with a quarter length second to Starpath over a furlong shorter at Turffontein last month. Even a repeat of that run ought to be enough to see Pilou come home in front this afternoon.

Cals Crush 13:30 (BST)

Cals Crush gets weight all round from her rivals here thanks and ran really on her only race to date when a two and a half length second to Winter Watch here over course and distance at the end of last month. The fifth and thirteenth home have both won since giving the form a solid look to it and with improvement assured for the Sean Tarry trained filly, Cals Crush can make the most of the race conditions this afternoon.

Win back #6 LADY BURN in R2 (12:20 BST)
Win back #1 PILOU in R3 (12:55 BST)
Win back #13 CALS CRUSH in R4 (13:30 BST)
