ZULUONMYSTEP hasn’t been beaten far in a couple of runs here and looks a late developer. He’s had a couple of months off so should be fresher than most. Duke Of Abercorn should be thereabouts if forgiven a poor run last time at Turffontein while Great Esteem left previous form behind when second to Bellagio King in a maiden handicap here last month. Pacific Dream and Sun Giant are likely improvers.
