Not able to make an impression despite 3-1 odds (maiden juvenile plate) last month at Turffontein Inside; could be dangerous if giving a more streetwise showing

Missed out by a neck sent off 17-2 over this distance (maiden plate) three weeks ago at Vaal, that form has substance (thrown up three next-time-out winners); if stepping up from most recent effort no surprise if he has a big say

5 Mar 22 Tur Turffontein 5f 9-0 3/8 Galla Vanting (3¼L) 25/3 - 49
Verdict

Firm preference is for VARTACUS who has seen the form of his latest run well advertised. Clean Living will attract market support while Always Better holds claims if his latest performance can be forgiven, and Magwinya, with few miles on the clock, could be capable of better.
