INTOTHEMYSTIC has returned in good form, going close at Vaal last time, and he can open his account now. Mike de Kock’s pair Western Vision and Throw A Tantrum are the others to focus on.
GREENS made a promising debut at Vaal and is much the one to aim at with improvement on the cards. Foreign Field could also build on his first run after a break, while Phinda Mzala is another with the potential to figure on his best form.
AFTERNOON TEA can end her run of seconds and open her account. Her form has a solid look to it and she deserves to get her head in front. Spice Market and Two Fools Collide are newcomers to note and the betting should be revealing.
AFRIEL has a fair chance if bouncing back to the form of her second at Vaal in November and she can go well at fairly decent odds. Single Red Rose is back in good form and is respected, while Malvern also has a race in her.
ESKIMO KISSES is back in top form and a big run is expected. Karino was an impressive winner on debut at Vaal in October and could be anything. The Fifth Wave looks third best.
AL MUTAWAKEL is getting better all the time and can resume winning ways under Luke Ferraris. Astrix takes a big drop in class and is feared most ahead of Bohica
CORDILLERA should get back to form and could be the answer to this competitive conditions event. Rouge Allure and Aurelia Cotta are among the other key players.
EPIC DREAM ran well again last time and can resume winning ways. Captain’s Reward and Wild N Grey also have claims.
CLAREMORRIS produced a career-best at the age of 7 when getting on top at Vaal in January and she could follow up if in the same mood. Towards The Sun is feared in her hat-trick bid, while Wings of Honor could also go well.
