Timeform pick out their three best bets from Vaal on Thursday…
“His neck second to Master And Man on his penultimate start puts him firmly in the mix.”
Timeform on Fort Carol
The three-year-old filly TANA’S EAGLE has scope to do better and has fair claims. She’s finished third on her two starts to date here, and improved when only beaten a length by Ocean City last time out. Splat The Cat rates the main danger, while Tidal Tussle shouldn’t be discarded.
The Geoff Woodruff-trained INSIGNIS looks to have more or less the best credentials but has little room for error. She’s a three-time winner, and a repeat of her second to Being Fabulous on her penultimate start could be enough for win number four. Jet Start shouldn’t be too far away either, while Cold Cash is another to bear in mind.
The Mike de Kock-trained FORT CAROL was a bit of a let down when favourite last time, but is taken to make the most of this opportunity. His neck second to Master And Man on his penultimate start puts him firmly in the mix. Flapjack is foremost among the dangers, while Waqaas might well have a say as well.
