Gave a good account on his debut over this distance at Turffontein Standside at 6-1; not much between him and Cavalier King (third) on that result; more scope than most; capable of going well

Verdict

Barney's Pride and Cavalier King are capable of better, and Catchthegreenlight needs to bounce back from a below-par performance. However, CHIEF RAFEEF is hard to get away from. He has strong claims after filling the runners-up spot on his debut at Vaal Classic last month.
