Finished tenth of 12 over this trip (fillies Grade 3) at Turffontein Standside two weeks ago in blinkers for the first time; has won previously at this course; first attempt at a handicap; she is the only female runner; hard to see her involved despite this looking a little easier than last time

Beaten half a length at 13-2 in a handicap latest (Turffontein Standside); a course winner and on an upward trajectory; off a higher mark but this only his second handicap outing; ought to be in the mix

Solid run when third in a handicap two weeks ago here over 7f; has winning form at this course but blinkers not had desired effect on his last two runs; this just his second run in a handicap but handicapper has had his say

Verdict

This is a competitive race. There is a question mark over whether World's Best will be effective over this trip while Just Eminent is respected although overcoming a ratings rise could be tricky, but ATTICUS FINCH can prove superior. He bids for a second CD success.
