Couldn't land a blow on his debut (here, this distance) at 14-1; wouldn't rule out a big run as has more scope than some of these

Represents a stable with a strong record here with their newcomers; first race; remains to be seen whether he'll be clued up enough to get off the mark at the first attempt - this one is best watched

Mother Of Pearl silk
Mother Of Pearl
J: K De Melo
T: J J Van Vuuren
Creditable debut, finishing fourth, beaten 3l at 11-2 at Vaal Classic; form given substance by next-time-out winner; she is the only female runner; more scope for improvement than most of these; easy to see her making an impression

Verdict

PHANTOMOFTHEFOREST is expected to win. Mother Of Pearl ran in a fair contest first time out, and Tincture Time needs to bounce back from a below-par run.
