Timeform on Follow My Path

#5 Christopher Robin - Vaal R5 (12:55 GMT)

A dual winner last year, Christopher Robin has shown improvement without getting his head in front since being stepped up in trip. He sets the bar high here and, assuming he proves as effective over 12 furlongs, looks the one to beat. Shabba Ranks looks a danger on the pick of his form, while Village Deep is another with place prospects.

#8 Follow My Path - Vaal R7 (14:05 GMT)

Follow My Path belatedly got off the mark with a career-best performance over this course and distance in December, and has largely remained in good form in his two subsequent outings. He is a consistent sort at this level and looks capable of springing an upset on the well-fancied Marshall. Just Kidding hasn't been at her best recently but is another with solid place claims on the pick of her form.

#11 In The Game - Vaal R8 (14:40 GMT)

In The Game has been running well in defeat of late and this looks as good an opportunity as any for him to end his long losing run. Podcast wasn't too far away at Turffontein earlier this month and looks the main danger, while Shortstop is another to bear in mind.
