20-1 chance when finishing fourth of five in a handicap (Turffontein Standside) last month, behind next-time-out winner; looks well treated on the pick of his form but a long time since his last success; the assessor relents a little; this demands more than last time so others more appealing

Finished last of nine in a handicap last month, behind a number of horses he faces here at Vaal in blinkers for the first time; good career strike-rate but out of sorts recently; has been dropped by the handicapper; hard to make a case for him

Finished sixth dropped to this distance in a handicap at Vaal latest when beaten 6l; a course winner but on a losing run; competes off a lower mark; reunited with S Khumalo; facing a tougher assignment this time, hard enough to fancy

Verdict

CAPTAIN CHORUS is a strong fancy. He has seen the form of his latest run well advertised. Imperial Master and Run As One may have their stamina stretched over this distance.
