Too good for Vantage Point at Turffontein Standside at 25-3, getting the job done first time out by 1l; likely to be a leading contender if reproducing initial effort

Verdict

Vantage Point needs to bounce back from a below-par run, and Set To Go can give the selection a headache. However, THUNDERSTONE can be superior to his rivals. He made his debut in what looked an up-to-scratch contest (form been franked).
