Well held when sixth (handicap) two months ago here; has won here before; rates a likely contender as would have leading chance if back in the same form he showed when winning two starts ago

Strong showing at this venue when third 49 days ago but hasn't won for a while; finished eighth dropped back to 1m1f in a handicap at Turffontein Inside when beaten 8l last month; been eased in the ratings by the handicapper; this represents a step up in class so not hard to turn elsewhere

Verdict

This looks an open event but it's hard to get away from MOCHA FRAPPE who bids for a second course success. Moola Man is considered although might not get the trip, Fushimi Inari isn't out of it, and Majestic Palace would be a threat if returning to form.
