Appreciated the fitting of blinkers in a maiden plate over Christmas when ahead of several of these rivals and close second at 5-2 over this trip (Turffontein Standside); no surprise if he has a big say; stable form is a bonus

Verdict

DRONFIELD has an obvious shout. He can confirm superiority over Bevoeterd, Blackburn Jet and Great Times, who were behind him last time. Trust The Fire should be on the shortlist while Love Bite ought to be in contention although her last run was slightly disappointing, and War Banner, with few miles on the clock, could be capable of better.
