Timeform pick out three bets from Vaal on Tuesday.


Go Green - Vaal 12:10

Go Green is clearly getting better race on race for trainer Johanne Janse van Vuuren and ought to be able to make it third time lucky this afternoon. Weak in the market on his Turffontein debut he was sent off at 44/1 from an opening 20/1 before finishing over seven lengths adrift in fourth, but he showed the benefit of that experience when a quarter length second to Miyoshi when stepped up from five to six furlongs last time out. Again pretty easy to back (9/2 from 5/2 at the off), there ought to be even more to come stepped up to this trip, and Go Green can win this before being sent handicapping in the long term.

Maneater - Vaal 13:20

Maneater is an acceptable price thanks to the support for Angelic but is bred to appreciate this step up in trip after a never nearer third at Turffontein over a totally inadequate five and a half furlongs on her only run to date. Less than a length off the winner that day, the daughter of Kahal is a shoe-in to improve dramatically for trainer Sean Tarry after just the one race, and if Maneater gets the trip as expected then jockey S'manga Khumalo should have a relatively easy job this afternoon with nominal improvement.

Hidden Agenda - Vaal 14:35

Hidden Agenda has top weight for trainer Scott Kenny but has had his life made easier with two late withdrawals leaving just the five-horse field over this mile and a quarter. Six wins from twenty-three starts so far for the six-year-old gelding and a good neck second to The Elmo Effect at Turffontein last time out suggest the son of Brave Tin Soldier has more to give despite his age, and dropped in class and upped in trip off the same merit rating, Hidden Agenda has a great chance of win number seven here.
