He is in good form heading into this contest, but it is a competitive field. It is a Handicap and he carries the bottom weight of 55.5kgs with Warren Kennedy in the saddle. He will run well and can fight out the finish.

He ran a good race when returning from a lengthy 35-week break last time. It was over a distance short of his best and he finished his race off strongly. It is a competitive field, but he has ability and should go close to winning.

Winning Form Comment: 2nd run after rest. Best MR:90. Fair comeback run over shorter. 2nd in only attempt over a mile.

He returns from a 15-week break and finds himself in a Novice Handicap. He has not had a grass gallop, but is doing well in his sand work. It is a small and competitive field, but he has ability and should go close to winning.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 15 wks. Impressive maiden winner and the form line has worked out well. Big chance.

She is having her first run for the Candice Dawson stable. She will love the long Vaal Classic straight, but the 1600m may be on the sharp side for her. She will be doing her best work late and will come on from this outing.

Winning Form Comment: Ex Muscutt P B-2021.06.16. Rested 16 wks. Best MR:80. Makes local/stable debut. Can improve.
