Draw: 6 (17 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 3/1

He has produced five decent efforts since relocating to the Eastern Cape. The son of William Longsword steps up to the 1900m for the first time and we are hoping that he can get into a nice rhythm in the race. Winning Form-sponsored Jockey Richard Fourie is booked to ride and he is expected to be involved in the finish.

Wgt: 57.0kg
Draw: 13 (18 Runners)

He is much better than his last start on the turf and will enjoy the return to the polytrack. He is very well in himself and if getting into the race, we are expecting to see a form return from him.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:75. Ideally prefers 1000m but has claims on good penultimate run.

Draw: 1 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1

He returns to the polytrack and Luyolo Mxothwa who has won on him in the past, steps back into the saddle. He is doing very well at home and his work has been good. The son of Var jumps from pole position and he is expected to put up a bold showing.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Much better than latest. Drawn pole and can return to winning ways.

He is looking well and is working nicely at home. He has dropped in the ratings and will be at peak fitness for this race. If putting his best foot forward, he is capable of finishing in the money.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:81. Moderate recent form over a mile. Has peak run and can improve.
