Soundly beaten when fifth (this distance, here, graduation plate) over Christmas; first go in a handicap; should give it a good shot if in the same form she showed when winning three starts back

Well beaten fifth in a handicap over C&D two months ago; has been dropped by the handicapper and this just his second run in a handicap; dropping in class but makes little appeal

Permesso Avanti
J: C Maujean

On a lengthy losing run; responded well to first-time blinkers at Turffontein Standside when only just held (10-1) over Christmas; competing off a higher mark; trainer in good form and likely to be involved

Fair form when 3½l fourth in a handicap at Kenilworth running over this distance 12 months ago; first start for new trainer; back from a break; unlikely to achieve more than just a supporting role despite this looking a little easier than last time

Verdict

It could be worth forgiving Ipso Facto a poor run last time out, and this trip could be a bit far for Permesso Avanti. However, WIND WATER is a strong pick. He is a distance winner.
