All eight wins around this trip; out of the frame beaten 3½l (went off 8-1) in a fillies handicap latest at Turffontein Standside, effort boosted by Exchange Student winning since; she can make a bold bid

Well beaten seventh over C&D two weeks ago; her three wins have all been over this trip but generally modest form since fillies handicap success at Vaal in August; is easing down the weights; dropping in class but makes little appeal

On a good mark based on best form but a long time since she saw any reward for her efforts; upped to 7f latest finishing 8l behind the winner (Turffontein Standside); hard to recommend

Verdict

CHASING HAPPINESS is a strong pick. She could be difficult to beat with plenty of scope to improve and has won at this track. Women Of Fame is one to be feared.
