PORTICO was in need of his comeback run over this distance at the Vaal. The run that catches the eye is when finishing second behind Nourbese in the Grade 2 Durban Golden Horseshoe, three runs ago. The son of What A Winter is the best weighted runner in this contest and should strip a much fitter horse. SPRING BREAK'S last two starts in soft underfoot conditions have been good. She has won once and finished second once from four starts over this distance. She makes her course debut today and if suited to the track, she should give the males a run for their money. THUMBS UP ran a decent race when finishing third over 1100m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She may be better suited to the turf and if jumping on terms, she should be one of the leading contenders. MIDNIGHT CALLER has been disappointing in his last two starts. It must be noted that the form of his last race has been franked. He has work to do at the weights, but is capable of earning a cheque.
