Seems to be progressing with each race and aiming to complete a hat-trick; narrow scorer in a handicap (Turffontein Standside) last month; his official mark has been hit but runs for only the second time in a handicap; this looks tougher but should go well

Last of ten in a handicap here last month 8l behind Warhawk Bomber; likes it here (four wins) but largely disappointing since successful in a handicap at Vaal Classic in August; reunited with S Khumalo, the pair have built a good partnership; others have more pressing claims as this is a tougher test

Verdict

CAPTAIN OF GRIT looks set for a big run. Joker Man may have his stamina stretched over this trip, and Warhawk Bomber should appreciate this course.
