MAJESTICA made a fair debut at this venue and should improve. If she jumps on terms this time she can go on to score. PALACE ROSE has been doing well upfront and will be looking to go all the way. RUNAWAY GAL could be the big improver. She is well bred and probably just needed her Barrier Trial. DANCING PRINCESS, BRONNIE and FROSTY PRINCESS can all get into it.
LITTLE WINTER was eye catching in her Barrier Trial and then backed in a feature when not enjoying Greyville last time. She can make amends. MAC 'N SCAR showed good promise in his Barrier Trial at Greyville. He is speedy and could make the required improvement. CAPTAIN SNELL did not show much in the West Cape but has been gelded now. LICKERIO can only improve.
LESLIE SHADOWLINER pulled off a coup for a stable in good form of late. He could be well in still and can follow up if not minding the switch to Scottsville. TEXAS SKY was flying just behind the former and is better off at the weights. He must have a say. NOBLE DUKE and PATHWAY TO GLORY are closely matched and rate contenders on current form. SHE'S A FORTRESS is capable.
TRIBAL FUSION had done well in the West Cape and then showed last time that he has a bright future in this province as well when second last time. SUMMER SKY has been racing off what looks his optimum rating but enjoys it here and can show his class. SYLVESTER THE CAT met a fair sort last time and is track specialist. LORD BALMERINO and CAPTAIN COURTEOUS have claims.
Dean Kannemeyer holds a strong hand his coupling should be competitive. Top-weight ONE MAN SHOW is best treated on these terms and will feature if race ready, but stable companion KAPEN PRIDE is also well in at the weights and probably better than rated, so is preferred. Lightly raced HERO QUEST and SILVER DE LANGE are in fine fettle and could also have a say. Others can earn
IDEAL WINTER has turned the corner since racing fitted with blinkers and she could raise her game again. Progressive LEAVES OF GRASS may need further to be seen at her best but she should be competitive racing fresh. Best-weighted PREMIER DANCE sets the standard on exposed form and can make her presence felt from a tidy inside gate. NGAGA, LUNA CHILD and FANTASY LADY can earn.
Good race. THE SLADE has turned the corner after gelding and should be right in the mix on these terms. On a line through Eyes Wide Open, he is closely matched with Gr 1 Cape Derby 3rd PACK LEADER who is improving and likely to be competitive. ELUSIVE SILVA is capable of making his presence felt if reproducing best form. OLLIVANDER and DARK MOON RISING have earning potential.
CASHMERE MIST and GREEN CAVIAR could show more over the longer trip. The youngsters have been running over shorter and have not done badly. CASHMERE MIST met a fair sort in his Trial. INCOMODATION has been racing hard upfront and doing well. She'll have every chance again. PURPLE AND GOLD could be the big improver amongst the older runners. More can upset.
