Quick Trip
J: K Matsunyane

Narrow winner (SP 6-1) of a handicap last month (over this trip, Turffontein Standside), form which has been nicely boosted; now competes off a higher mark; this represents a step up in class but shouldn't be far away

Prized Platinum
J: K A Brewer
T: C Binda
Can boast winning form over this course and distance; never really threatened when just over 4l behind Nkandla Gold over C&D (handicap) when seventh of ten (16-1) last month; makes limited appeal with this looking tougher than last time

Verdict

KINSHIN SHA is the pick of these. He is a distance winner and the form of his race last month is working out well. Stormy Seas has winning form over course and distance while Quick Trip is likely to be popular in the betting, and Longsword is one to be interested in.
