Still without a win after 12 starts; finished sixth, beaten a fair distance, in a maiden plate over this distance at Turffontein Standside two months ago; not sure what happened on last two outings but interesting based on his runner-up at Vaal Classic three months ago; should be on the premises

Verdict

BRAVE VIKING is hard to look beyond. Mo The Man has been stacking up the good efforts, and Broadway could be vulnerable to a less exposed rival.
