Good career strike-rate; finished third but wasn't beaten too far (just under 4l) in a progress plate last month (Turffontein Standside, the second scored since); useful partnership with S Khumalo, who is back on board today; cannot be ignored

Verdict

There are a few potential winners but MUFASA can prevail. Heavens Girl is respected based on course form, and Bartholdi is a big threat.
