Finished in front of Putontheredlight and Captain Aldo (Turffontein Standside, this distance, stakes race) two weeks ago when 25-1 fourth of 12 in reapplied blinkers; knows how to win here; hard to ignore if reproducing the form of his win at Vaal last month

No winning form at this distance but has won here before; solid performance to finish second at 12-1 (this distance Vaal Classic, handicap) last month; that form advertised by the first; not the biggest surprise to see him go well with drop in class a positive

Creditable effort in third (beaten just over 2l) in a handicap (Vaal Classic) last month; form franked by a next-time-out winner; was an encouraging runner-up five races ago and if in the same mood holds obvious claims

Finished fourth but wasn't beaten too far (3½l, handicap, Greyville Polytrack) two weeks ago; a course winner but generally modest form since handicap success at Turffontein Standside in December; may not be up to this as stamina to prove at this trip

Verdict

NORDIC REBEL looks a solid choice. He has seen the form of his latest run well advertised. Putontheredlight has winning form over course and distance.
