Failed to take advantage of a good draw in a maiden plate last month at Vaal Classic when beaten a fair way (just over 5l); has shown enough to think he could win a race; did finish a good second at Vaal Classic four weeks ago and has to be high on list

Verdict

GREGOR MACGREGOR gets the vote. Chances are given to Royal Raphael and Greenbackcurrency, and Big Guy should be involved but needs to be excused a bad run last time.
