Verdict

LIBERTY PRINT was not far off in a Trial with some top division runners. She switches to turf and could show more. BEQUIA made a fair debut behind a subsequent feature winner and confirmed the potential she showed in a Trial. She should have every chance. HOLY FLAME has some fair form over a bit further. She could sprint well after rest. ROY'S NOVICE must have a say.

Verdict

HOLY FLAME is some way in advance of these on form and is well up to winning this readily. Roy's Novice will probably give the selection most to think about, while Gypsy Queen may be the one for third.

Verdict

TWO STROKE was well supported and ran a good race in second in just his second start. He is improving nicely but a wide draw may spoil it for him. FIRE SONG could capitalise from a better draw back on the turf after holding form on the poly. DON PIERRO was not far behind TWO STROKE and could make even more improvement. Another youngster with a bad draw. More can upset.

Verdict

FIRE SONG's recent efforts have been likeable on the whole and is just about the pick in this company. Line Of Control has the best claims of the others, while Ferris also demands respect.

Verdict

LAAT LAMMETJIE is progressing nicely and showed she has stamina when a good second over this trip last time. She can go one better if not minding the switch to turf. ADORNED BY BEAUTY is knocking at the door and has run well at Greyville and Scottsville. She can get it right if getting the extra. PRESS MY BUTTON gave signs last and could show up strongly. L'ORFEO has a say.

Verdict

ADORNED BY BEAUTY has put together a good series of efforts lately and has leading claims. Laat Lammetjie appeals most of the remainder, while Press My Button is in the running for a share of the minor money.

Verdict

Q THE MUSIC was not disgraced at Greyville. He is back at his best track and looks a strong runner in this contest. EDGE OF THE SUN caught the eye, albeit in a Barrier Trial, and is back over his best trip. He must be there. CAPTAIN'S CHARM has been speedy over further in the Cape. He has blinkers here and could be dangerous. ANTONY HOTSPUR won easily - respect him.

Verdict

PANZA's recent efforts have had a lot to like about them and he should give backers a run for their money. Drageda could emerge as the chief threat, while Moon Shadow can't be ruled out.

Verdict

BILLY SILVER tried the turf at Greyville and was not disgraced as he jumped from a wide draw and it was a powerful race. He is unbeaten here and should be one of the leading fancies in this. PERCIVAL showed something like his best at Fairview and seeing as he has made the trip to Kzn should hold form. He has a 4kg claim to boot. FILIPPO is knocking hard at the door.

Verdict

FIRST MATE has been operating at a good level lately and has fair claims. Majestic Glory could be the biggest competition, while Filippo commands a second look as well.

Verdict

JO'S BOND won this race last year and has other powerful wins in the bank over this trip. She is joint best weighted and should run a big race again. But many a fast sort in this. SOMMERLIED lost form in the West Cape but is back home and could bounce back to best. STATUTE is also unbeaten here but runs over the minimum trip today. VINE STREET STAR can upset. Tough race.

Verdict

NEPTUNE'S RAIN has generally been running well and has a fair chance. Miss Varlicious could be the one to capitalise if the selection underperforms, while Hashtag Strat should also be considered.
