Beaten a neck at 5-2 at Turffontein Standside last Tuesday; stable is operating at a decent strike-rate (9-37) over the past two weeks and likely to be in contention

Solid effort in reapplied blinkers (Vaal Classic) 12 days ago; achieved only a sole win; should be in the mix as stable is operating at a good strike-rate (9-36 over the past two weeks)

A course winner; well beaten behind the sixth, King Arthur, (Turffontein Standside) last month when beaten a fair way (8l); makes little appeal

Upped to 1m2f latest when last of ten at Vaal Classic; just a sole success to his name; blinkers the headgear of choice again (wore pacifiers previously); makes little appeal

Verdict

This is a competitive race but the suggestion is SIR TALLIN. Pottinger is likely to have a big say, and there should be plenty of market support for Kool Baikal.
