Well beaten when last in first-time blinkers in a handicap over this distance at Vaal Classic five months ago; largely disappointing since successful in a stakes race at Vaal Classic last September; has eased in the weights; returns from break; uphill struggle as tougher task in this company

Verdict

There should be plenty of market support for Big Eyed Girl, and Droghiere is a major contender. However, TWICE AS SPLENDID is a firm tip. He is bidding to land a second win over this CD.
