T: J J Van Vuuren
Near miss at 83-100 (this distance Turffontein Inside, fillies maiden plate) two months ago on first run for this trainer; big run looks on the cards as stable is operating at a good strike-rate (5-24 over the past two weeks)

Solid effort when beaten just under 3l to finish third (this trip Vaal, fillies maiden plate) last month (form has been franked); if stepping up from most recent effort needs to be respected

Yet to get her head in front after ten starts; not far behind two of these rivals over C&D (fillies maiden plate) latest when beaten a fair way (5l); was an encouraging second three races ago and if in the same mood ought to be competitive

Verdict

SILVER MENSA is the one to back. Heart And Mind needs to bounce back from a below-par run, and Rockingthetimeaway poses a big threat.
