Fair effort when 2½l third to King's Cove in a handicap five weeks ago on debut for new trainer at Greyville Polytrack; has won here but on a losing run; far from solid with this looking tougher than last time

T: G Van Zyl (jnr)
Stepped up to 1m1½f in a handicap at Scottsville when beaten 6l (sixth of 13) 21 days ago and just behind two of these; his only win was on all-weather and largely disappointing since successful in a maiden plate at Greyville Polytrack in February; the assessor relents a little; this represents a step up in class so unlikely to do better than a supporting role

Verdict

MYSTERY BOY is the one to keep on side. He has won at this track. However, the principals look evenly matched; Chewbaca is in with a shout, but does need to be forgiven a poor run last time, while this distance might be a bit far for Blue Planet and Querari's Cowboy.
