Not really built on success in a maiden plate last August at Durbanville; not beaten that far (4l, went off 4-1) in a handicap on his debut for new trainer 24 days ago at Turffontein Inside; handicapper easing the burden; easy to see him making an impression despite this step up in class

Posted respectable effort when beaten half a length (this trip, Turffontein Inside, handicap) last week; on a good mark based on best form and has won here before; if replicating best efforts should not be ruled out

Verdict

A case can be made for KOTINOS who is going over a distance that has yielded success for him in the past. However, this looks a competitive affair; there is a question mark over whether Warm Winter Nite will be effective over this trip, while Written In Stone should be in the hunt.
