Finished towards the rear in the Grade 3 World Of Sport Gold Cup at Greyville two months ago; work to do with Chewbaca (fifth) on that effort; plenty of wins on his CV and all wins going left handed; if excused last two runs he would be interesting based on his second at Scottsville in June; no surprise to see him go well

Verdict

TOP QUALITY is expected to win. He finished ahead of Baratheon, Somerset Maugham and Pack Leader last month. Han Solo and Somerset Maugham may have their stamina stretched over this distance.
