THE CONTRACTOR finished 1.7 lengths behind FITZWILLIAM in his last start. He is 2kgs better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned. He has won once and finished third once from as many starts on this course. With a bit of luck in running, he should find himself in the winner's enclosure. FITZWILLIAM won a good race in his last start over 1160m on the Standside course. The son of Dynasty won his only attempt over this C&D. S'manga Khumalo retains the ride and if repeating that effort, he should run a good race. TREND MASTER has decent consistent form lines to his credit. He has won twice, finished second once and third once from as many starts on this course. If not in need of this outing, he should be one of the leading contenders. ROCK OF AFRICA'S last three starts have been good. Five of his six career victories have come over this distance. Jason Gates steps back into the saddle and the combination cannot be ignored.
