On a long losing run; nothing to fault about his last run (just under 2l third) in a handicap over this trip 14 days ago at Turffontein Inside, the fifth boosted the form since; no surprise if he has a big say if reproducing most recent effort

Verdict

If excusing their latest efforts, Zoombomber and Azucar enter calculations while there is a question mark over whether Can't Catch Me will be effective over this trip. But VIVA DE JANEIRO looks a solid choice. He should be able to confirm placings with Carnelo and Green Sceptre and the form of his last run is working out well.
