Timeform pick out three bets from Vaal on Tuesday.


Wellspring - Vaal 13:50

Wellspring has placed in six of his ten starts so far with a pair of decent thirds in his last two outings here over a furlong further and more recently at Turffontein. Considering the son of Querari shows plenty of early pace it came as a surprise to read that this will be his first ever try at five furlongs, and if Piere Strydom is allowed to send him off from the front by trainer Clinton Binda, Wellspring ought to take a lot of catching this afternoon.

Nitrogen - Vaal 14:25

Nitrogen has a long list of serious rivals in this competitive looking seven furlong handicap but she looks to have a solid chance off a rating three pounds lower than when a two and a half length fifth here over six furlongs last time out. She steps back up in trip to a seventh furlong here which seems far more suitable for the Alec Laird mare when you consider Nitrogen finished a neck second over course and distance off five pounds higher as recently as June.

Sleepinseattle - Vaal 15:00

Sleepinseattle was beaten by the narrowest margin of a nose here last time after meeting a spot of trouble in running, and was considered by many to be an unlucky loser in a bunch finish with less than half a length covering the first four home. The third has won since to give the form a solid look to it, and as Sleepinseattle runs off just a pound higher here, he looks to have every chance of winning his fourth race on his thirty-sixth start.
