Although yet to hit the target, has shown ability; solid effort when beaten just over 2l to finish third in a maiden plate at Vaal five months ago; returns from break; if stepping up from most recent effort he is a serious player

Towards the rear of 13 in a maiden plate (Turffontein Standside) two months ago (wore blinkers); third at Vaal Classic, albeit some way off the winner, two starts back and should not be ruled out

Yet to win, defeats are stacking up; couldn't land a blow when tenth of 14 in a maiden plate at Turffontein Standside last month; something to find with Lemme Go (second) on that performance; is passed over as must prove this trip is what he wants

Verdict

BLONDE ACT looks set for a big run. He is open to more improvement. Pewter Sky might have a say while Motor City Hitman has generally been running well, and Arabian Sky is capable of better than she showed last time.
