Finished ninth of 12 in a handicap 11 days ago at Greyville Polytrack in blinkers for the first time; all career wins have come on all-weather; a long time since he saw any reward for his efforts; this represents a step up in class so unlikely to do better than a supporting role

Verdict

GIAMBATTISTA rates a strong tip. He has won four times over this distance. Pongola has generally been running well while Ode To The Ocean is possibly starting to look exposed, and Phutulicious has run well previously over this course and distance.
