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

"...left his previous form behind last time and is arguably the one they have to beat..."

Timeform on Private Ruler

#12 SINGFORAFA - Vaal R2 (12:40 BST)

SINGFORAFA is just about the pick in this company and should give backers a good run for their money. Kindavar is a solid alternative, while Allmyloving can't be ruled out either.

#3 THE RUSSIAN SAILOR - Vaal R3 (13:15 BST)

THE RUSSIAN SAILOR was back to his best on his latest start and sets the standard. Mighty Rock seems the leading threat, while Verdi might be tough to keep out of the minor places.

#9 PRIVATE RULER - Vaal R5 (14:25 BST)

PRIVATE RULER left his previous form behind last time and is arguably the one they have to beat. Finchatton is the most realistic choice for second, while Hakeem might be worth siding with for third.
