On a good mark based on best form and a course winner; went down by half a length sent off 9-1 in a handicap 18 days ago at Vaal Classic; form boosted by the second going in since; edging up the ratings; not the biggest surprise to see him go well if building on last performance

Verdict

A wide-open affair but the selection is OCEAN CITY who has every chance with winning CD form. Scoop should put up plenty of resistance, Donny G certainly isn't out of it, and Gemcutter is likely to attract market support.
