Trainer Fabian Habib saddles Zeus in Race 3. He was not disgraced when fourth in the Grade 1 Betway Summer Cup last time.

He should have finished closer to the winner last time as he was switched for running room at the 400m mark.

It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. With luck in running, he should take a power of beating.

Bob’s Your Uncle from the Lucky Houdalakis stable takes his place in Race 8. He showed some signs of a form return in his last start over 2000m at the Vaal.

He set the pace that day, but tired late. The son of Royal Mo should enjoy the drop back to the mile as he has won over this distance in the past.

He takes a drop-in class and if putting his best foot forward, he should be too good for this field.

Jockeys Muzi Yeni and Richard Fourie will not be riding today.
