Has winning form at this course; not disgraced in tenth at 6-1 (Turffontein Standside) three weeks ago; may be plenty short enough in the betting as will need to defy a career-high mark

You have to go back a long way to find her only win; nothing wrong with her last effort, third, beaten just over 1l, here (7f) two weeks ago; edging up the ratings; she takes on the boys here; if stepping up from most recent effort hard to ignore

Verdict

DOUBLE MAGIC is a firm tip. He can be forgiven a poor run. Written In Stone isn't out of it while Java House is beginning to look exposed, and Kotinos is a major threat.
