Timeform bring you the three best bets at the Vaal on Thursday…
“She is a filly on the up and is taken to quickly bounce back to winning ways.”
Timeform on Winter Smoke
#8 Winter Smoke – Vaal R7 (13:50)
Winter Smoke is quickly building up an impressive record, a winner of two of her four starts, and she was only narrowly beaten over this course and distance last time. She is a filly on the up and is taken to quickly bounce back to winning ways. Rapid Fire and South East appeal most of the remainder.
#9 May Queen – Vaal R8 (14:25)
May Queen showed much improved form to open her account at Turffontein in September, and she supplemented that with a career-best effort to land a handicap at this course last time. She is in the form of her life at the minute and gets the vote to bring up the hat-trick. Comaneci and Persica can fill the places.
#10 We All Chomies – Vaal R9 (15:00)
We All Chomies was below form when down the field at Turffontein last time, but he had been running relatively consistently prior to that, and he is capable of making a big impression on these terms. Irrevocable Dream looks the pick for second, while Deerupt could also make her presence felt.
