Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Jason Gates
Wgt: 54.0kg
Draw: 7 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

He is a big strong horse who should enjoy the 2000m trip which he tries for the first time. Jason Gates rides and he should be able to place him in the race. He is doing very well at home and the stable expects him to be involved in the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:72. Decent latest when behind number 3. Shoulders a handy galloping mass and can threaten.

Wgt: 52.0kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 14/1

He is doing well in his work at home and being drawn in pole, he should be in the box seat for nothing. He comes in with a light weight, and a good run is expected by the stable.

Winning Form Comment: 3rd run after rest. Best MR:76. Had excusable start last time. Drawn pole and should be cherry-ripe.

Trainer: Alyson Wright

He is a horse that gives away start in the early stages of his races. He does have a wide draw of nine to contend with, but will be running on under Keagan de Melo.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:77. Moderate latest in this class. Is a three-time C&D winner and can improve.

Breeding: Bold Silvano – Chiffon by Grey Eminence (FR)
Trainer: Gary Rich
Jockey: JP van der Merwe

Draw: 6 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 7/1

After running two poor races, he showed good signs of a form return when finishing fifth over this course and distance last time. He is showing good work at home and with JP van der Merwe in the saddle, he should be involved in the fight to the finish.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Fair latest over this C&D. Van der Merwe may be able to coax extra out of him.
