Has won here in the past; behind Danza (eighth) and Angel's Power (ninth) four weeks ago when last at Vaal in a stakes race when dropped back to 6f finishing 18l behind the winner; not a great record on second run back after a layoff and others have more pressing claims

Comfortably beaten finishing last in November at Turffontein Standside; something to find with Warrior's Rest (runner-up) on that performance; three wins from ten runs here but on a losing run; he's hard to fancy despite this looking a little easier than last time

Could not manage better than ninth in a stakes race at Vaal last month; yet to win over this distance and not really built on success in a Grade 3 in August at Turffontein Inside; others perhaps more persuasive

Verdict

Warrior's Rest should appreciate this course while the trip could be an issue for State Trooper. But TIERRA DEL FUEGO is a strong pick. He bids to return to winning ways and is proven at the trip (four distance wins).
