T: C Spies
Tenth of 12 (Turffontein Standside, this trip, Listed handicap race) last month on his second outing for this trainer; potentially well treated on his best form but a while since he has been in the winners' enclosure; no headgear this time; not hard to look beyond him despite dropping in class

Verdict

It's quite an open contest but RIDGERUNNER is preferred. He is going for a second success at this trip. Retallick is one to consider, Cool Winter is likely to be popular with punters, and Existentialist has winning form over course and distance.
