Displayed a fair level of form when just under 4l runner-up in a handicap 17 days ago (Turffontein Inside) with two of these rivals behind; admirable career strike-rate

Seems to be progressing with each race; defied career-high mark (Vaal, this trip, handicap) last month when winning in good style (had Rooi Tom back in towards the rear); this represents a step up in class but he is a serious player

Was behind Expressfromtheus at Vaal last month (handicap) when finishing towards the rear of 13 running over this trip; has won here before but not really built on success in a handicap in February at Vaal; the assessor relents a little; this represents a step up in class so others are preferred

Did it nicely in a handicap 41 days ago (Turffontein Inside); on a hat-trick after last win and has a progressive profile; taken a rise in the weights but just second start in this company; he should give it a bold bid despite this step up in class

Verdict

Crank It Up has winning CD form while this distance may be a bit longer than Bergerac wants. But EXPRESSFROMTHEUS is hard to look beyond. He had the reopposing Rooi Tom behind last week and will be suited by this distance.
