He returns from a 23-week break and is having his first run this season. He is the best weighted runner in this contest. However, this is a prep run for the Cape Flying Championship on WSB Cape Town Met day. He is fit enough to do himself justice but the stable feel that he will take a lot of improvement from this race. His work has been solid, and he looks great.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 23 wks. Best MR:130. Coming off a Grade 1 victory. Seasonal debut and can go close.

She ran an exceptional race over 1000m last time and the stable feel that she will be more comfortable over this 1200m. She is looking well, and her work has been good. It is a competitive field and if she puts her best foot forward, she can fight out the finish.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:108. Just touch off in improved latest run. Chance if confirms.

She is having her first run for the stable. She is a lovely filly who has been working well. The drop to 1200m is not ideal but this is a starting point for her in Cape Town. We are hoping for a positive run and this outing will bring her on for future races.
