Still searching for his first win after 26 attempts but has generally shown a liking for this venue of late; could not manage better than sixth (maiden plate) at Vaal Classic over Christmas; last two runs were below standard set by third at Vaal Classic three starts ago; has to be considered

Came home fifth, beaten 8l, in a maiden plate latest (Turffontein Standside); form given substance by next-time-out winner; might have a say given he was third (albeit some way back) at Turffontein Standside two starts ago

A couple of recent creditable course runs to her name and was runner-up here 639 days ago; solid effort in defeat to finish third after going off 16-1 over this distance (fillies maiden plate) at Vaal Classic over Christmas; she is the only mare here; shortlisted if replicating most recent run

Verdict

QUIXOTE is the pick of these. He can bounce back from an excusable blip. Phantomoftheforest is likely to be popular with punters.
