Gallic Tribe from the Jacques Strydom stable takes his place in the Non-Black Type Founders Trophy.

He moved up like a winner in the Listed Jonsson Workwear Algoa Cup last time but was outrun late.

He won a good race in his penultimate start over this course and distance. The 6yo gelding is holding his form well and he can notch up his sixth career victory.

Trainer Duncan McKenzie saddles Kuznetsov in Race 4 and he represents decent each way value. He showed good signs of a form return in his last start over 1400m on this course.

He raced from a handy position and stayed on well at the finish. It must be noted that multiple horses from that form line have come out and won since.

He should have finished closer to the winner in his penultimate run as he was held up between the 500m mark and 300m mark.

He has cracked a good draw of two and if not too far out of his ground turning for home, he can return to winning ways.
