Ran well at this venue when first in 2019; gained narrow success in a handicap at Vaal Classic 16 days ago; handicapper applies the brakes; definitely of interest now down in grade

Not always shown an awful lot since winning a stakes race at Turffontein Inside in February but a prolific winner during his career; out of the frame beaten 3½l (went off 33-1) in a handicap latest at Turffontein Inside on his first start for this trainer; dropping in the ratings; should go close if reproducing the form of his win at Turffontein Inside in February

Verdict

There is not much between these on figures - Savannah Storm may give the others plenty to think about while Mardi Gras has to be on the shortlist, however, could struggle to defy a hike in the weights. However, GALLIC TRIBE gets the vote. He didn't do much wrong last time (form has been boosted since) and will be suited by this distance.
