Upped to 7f last month when finishing last of eight at Turffontein Standside; lower mark this time; she is the only female runner; makes little appeal as has more on her plate in this

Unable to land a blow when fifth of seven over C&D over Christmas (handicap); that form has substance (produced a next-time-out winner); has an impressive record over course and distance (three wins from nine runs); not hard to turn elsewhere

Largely disappointing since successful in a non-black type race at Greyville in July; beaten 4l when fifth of eight but didn't run badly at 20-1 (this trip, Vaal, non-black type race) last month, behind next-time-out winners; unlikely to trouble the principals

Verdict

This is a difficult race to call but TRE AMICI is put forward as the selection. He is a CD winner and the form of his race 35 days ago is working out well. There should be plenty of market support for Umthombo Wolwazi.
