No market support but far from disgraced, finishing fourth on his debut over this distance at 20-1, finishing ahead of subsequent winner Treaty; more scope for improvement than some of these; ought to be in the mix

J: K De Melo

Beaten just under 4l when seventh of 15 but didn't run badly at 40-1 in a maiden plate last month (Turffontein Standside); hard to ignore as current stable form a big plus

Verdict

Quixote should be in the shake-up while Ngokushesha, who has few miles on the clock, is a contender. But WORLD'S BEST is a firm choice. He can prove a below-par latest run was just a blip.
