Solid run when fourth over this distance (stakes race) latest on debut outing for new trainer (Turffontein Standside), the seventh boosted the form since; plenty of wins on his CV; was an encouraging second three races ago and if in the same mood likely to be thereabouts

A number of recent efforts here offer plenty of encouragement and all career wins have come over this trip; benefited from application of blinkers when winning by three-quarters of a length running over this trip last month at Turffontein Standside with Singfonico and Bronco Blitz behind; yard is going well and hard to dismiss

Beaten just over 4l when fifth of 12 but didn't run badly at 25-2 in a handicap (Greyville Polytrack) two months ago; all six wins have come over this trip; this represents a step up in class so hard to recommend

Verdict

BIG EYED GIRL gets a firm vote. She can enhance her CD record. Captain Oupie has been running well in defeat of late while Marengo will not be without market support, and Godswood is capable of running well.
