Race Tip

Group 1 placegetter ROYAL AUSSIE (1) is back after a break of 11 weeks. Started the last campaign in good style when in the placings over 7f at Durbanville. Expect him to play a major role. Group 1 winner COUSIN CASEY (2) changes rider since being well held last time in 13th over 1m2f in the G1 Champions Challenge at Turffontein Standside on April 6. Better than the last run suggests. Group 2 winner GLADATORIAN (6) was well supported when resuming last time out over 6f at this track and proved too strong, scoring by 2 lengths. Fitter for that last hitout and is expected to run well again. Multiple Group 2 winner HUMDINGER (7) is racing well and is close to a win, the latest effort a solid second in the G1 Empress Club Stakes at Turffontein Standside over 1m. Suitably placed so anticipating a big run this time.
