Out of the frame beaten 3½l (went off 33-1) in a handicap (Turffontein Inside) five weeks ago on first run for his current trainer (had two of these rivals behind); not really built on success in a stakes race in February at Turffontein Inside but has won previously at this course; been eased in the ratings by the assessor; this looks tougher but ought to be competitive

Verdict

This is not a race for maximum stakes. Imperial Master poses a big threat while Whafeef needs to bounce back from a below-par performance. However, this can go to REUNION who is taken to confirm placings with Whafeef and Share Holder and has won at this venue previously.
