Not really built on success in a handicap last July at Turffontein Inside; beaten 3½l when seventh of 14 but didn't run badly at 100-1 in a handicap last month (Turffontein Standside); the assessor relents a little; dropping in class but has some questions to answer

You have to go back a long way to find his only win; some way behind the fifth, Flag Bearer, in a handicap last month (over 1m here) when beaten a fair way (13l); competes off a lower mark; this represents a step up in class so hard enough to fancy

Verdict

A tight contest but it's hard to get away from SILVANO'S SONG who is expected to confirm placings after he got the better of Romeo's Magic and Futurewolff 11 days ago. Main Mission may have his stamina stretched over this trip, Majestic Touch should be on the shortlist, and Blackberry Breeze should be in the mix.
