No wins at the trip; had a couple of these behind in a handicap three weeks ago (Turffontein Inside), getting the job done by 1½l; competing off a higher mark; should prove competitive

Some way behind the third, Fred, with blinkers reapplied here over 1m2f finishing 9l behind the winner last week; on a good mark based on best form but a long time since he saw any reward for his efforts; unlikely to achieve more than just a supporting role

Soundly beaten when fifth in a handicap last month (Turffontein Inside), 10l behind Cash Time; has won here in the past but largely disappointing since successful in a handicap at Vaal in December; looks vulnerable

Verdict

There's not much between those likely to be in the mix but it's hard to get away from CASH TIME who finished ahead of So Long Spring and French Leave last month. Bold Resolve is considered although might not get the trip.
