Gained plenty of wins on straight tracks; not disgraced in eighth at 40-1 in a handicap at Vaal Classic 19 days ago; makes limited appeal despite this looking a little easier than last time

Verdict

Tjhis is an open event but it's hard to get away from PILLAROFTHEEARTH who is looking to improve his already excellent record at this distance and is hard to ignore if forgiven a modest most recent effort. CD winners Towards The Sun, Captain Hindsight and Gemcutter are respected.
