Timeform on Capitana

#8 Meraki - Durbanville R6 (15:05)

Meraki has been a little hit and miss this year, but even his misses are generally decent performances, and if he is caught on a going day, then he should have enough to land this race, and at the forecast prices, he gets the nod. Hurricane Harry arrives here at the very top of his game and should also make his presence felt, while Follow The Star can win the battle for third.

#3 Capitana - Durbanville R7 (15:40)

Capitana opened her account at the second time of asking over this course and distance last month, and she ran even better in defeat under similar conditions last time, beaten three quarters of a lengths. She is progressing well and just about sets the standard, so she gets the vote to make a successful handicap debut. Really Royal made a good impression when winning her debut at Kenilworth in June, and she looks the main danger provided she is ready to roll following a break. Miss Millstream gets the nod for third.

#1 Fateful - Durbanville R8 (16:15)

Fateful finished a very good second in a course-and-distance handicap here last month and a repeat of that performance should see him go one better. Brandenburg makes the most appeal of the remainder, while Wadi Rum makes up the shortlist.
